5-Methoxy-N,N-diisopropylbenzofuranethylamine (also known as 5-MeO-DiBF) is a novel psychedelic substance of the benzofuran class that produces psychedelic and stimulating effects when administered.[1] It is related in structure to 5-MeO-DiPT.

This compound has little to no history of human usage prior to its September 2015 release on the online research chemical market.

Very little is known about the pharmacological properties, metabolism, and toxicity of 5-MeO-DiBF. Due to its extreme novelty and unknown toxicity profile, it is highly advised that one use harm reduction practices if using this substance.

Chemistry

5-MeO-DiBF, or 5-methoxy-N,N-diisopropylbenzofuranethylamine, is a synthetic heterocyclic alkaloid molecule of the benzofuran class. Benzofuran is a bicyclic structure formed by the fusion of a benzene ring and a furan ring, a five member aromatic ring containing an oxygen substituent.

5-MeO-DiBF is composed of a benzofuran group attached at R3 to an amino group via an ethyl side chain. It is substituted at R5 of the benzofuran heterocycle with a methoxy (MeO) functional group CH3O−; it also contains two isopropyl chains bound to the terminal amine RN of its tryptamine backbone (DiBF).

The benzofuran group of 5-MeO-DiBF is closely related in structure to the indole found in tryptamines; benzofuran contains an oxygen group at the same location that indole contains a nitrogen. As such, 5-MeO-DiBF is closely related in structure to the psychedelic tryptamine 5-MeO-DiPT. 5-MeO-DiBF is the benzofuran analogue of 5-MeO-DiPT.

Pharmacology

Further information: Serotonergic psychedelic

5-MeO-DiBF likely acts as a 5-HT2A partial agonist. The psychedelic effects are believed to come from its efficacy at the 5-HT1A and 5-HT2 family of serotonin receptors. However, the role of these interactions and how they result in the psychedelic experience continues to remain elusive.

This compound is several times less potent as a serotonin agonist than 5-MeO-DiPT. It has relatively more activity at 5-HT1A, but still shows strongest effects at the 5-HT2 family of receptors.[2][3]

Subjective effects

The effects listed below are based upon the subjective effects index and personal experiences of PsychonautWiki contributors. These effects should be taken with a grain of salt and will rarely (if ever) occur all at once, but heavier doses will increase the chances of inducing a full range of effects. Likewise, adverse effects become much more likely on higher doses and may include serious injury or death.

Toxicity and harm potential

The toxicity and long-term health effects of recreational 5-MeO-DiBF use do not seem to have been studied in any scientific context and the exact toxic dose is unknown. This is because 5-MeO-DiBF is a research chemical with very little history of human usage.

Anecdotal reports from those who have tried 5-MeO-DiBF suggest that there are no negative health effects attributed to simply trying the drug by itself at low to moderate doses and using it very sparingly (but nothing can be completely guaranteed). Independent research should always be done to ensure that a combination of two or more substances is safe before consumption.

It is strongly recommended that one use harm reduction practices when using this substance.

Tolerance and addiction potential

5-MeO-DiBF is not habit-forming and the desire to use it can actually decrease with use. It is most often self-regulating.

Tolerance to the effects of 5-MeO-DiBF are built almost immediately after ingestion. After that, it takes about 3 days for the tolerance to be reduced to half and 7 days to be back at baseline (in the absence of further consumption). 5-MeO-DiBF presents cross-tolerance with all psychedelics, meaning that after the consumption of 5-MeO-DiBF all psychedelics will have a reduced effect.

Legal status

This legality section is a stub.

As such, it may contain incomplete or wrong information. You can help by expanding it.

5-MeO-DiBF is currently thought to be a legal grey area substace in many parts of the world. However, although it is easily accessible through the use of online research chemical vendors, this does not guarantee anyone to be immune from legal prosecution should they be found in possession of this substance as the legality is likely to vary from country to country.

  • United Kingdom - It is illegal to produce, supply, or import this drug under the Psychoactive Substance Act, which came into effect on May 26th, 2016.[4]
