5-MeO Group


Popular names 5-MeO-AMT, 5-MeO-DALT, 5-MeO-DET, 5-MeO-DMT, 5-MeO-DIPT, 5-MeO-MIPT and others
What is it?

These are a group of chemicals that share a common root structure (5-methoxytryptamine) and have many similarities in effects. There are many other variants of the 5-MeO type and new ones may yet be discovered, but most of them are extremely rare and it is difficult to say how frequently they may be encountered by ordinary consumers. The ones listed here are the most common, but they too are still relatively rare.

NOTE- a number of other substances (e.g. AMT, DMT) share letters with some in the 5-MeO group. Whilst there may be some similarities, they are different chemicals that will act very differently and should not be mistaken for one another.
