N,N-Diallyl-5-methoxytryptamine (also known as 5-MeO-DALT or colloquially as Foxtrot) is a lesser-known psychedelic substance of the tryptamine class that produces short-lived psychedelic effects when administered. It is structurally related to tryptamines like 5-MeO-DiPT and DALT, although it is reported to produce distinct effects.

5-MeO-DALT was first synthesized by Alexander Shulgin, who sent the first material regarding the synthesis and effects to a researcher in May 2004. This material was subsequently circulated online and the compound soon appeared on the online research chemical market. In August 2004, the synthesis and effects of 5-MeO-DALT were officially published by Erowid.[1] Reports linked to the detection of 5-MeO-DALT began to surface in 2007.[2]

Anecdotal reports characterize the effects of this substance as being primarily physical in nature, lacking the characteristic visual distortions or perceptual depth of most psychedelics. Its headspace has been described as "shallow," albeit suited for sexual contexts due to its potent stimulating and libidinous effects. It is also reported to produce more uncomfortable cardiovascular effects such as increased blood pressure and heart rate relative to other psychedelics. This has raised questions about possible toxicity associated with long-term or heavy uses.

Very limited data exists about the pharmacological properties, metabolism, and toxicity of 5-MeO-DALT, and it has a very short history of human use. It is highly advised to use harm reduction practices if using this substance.

Chemistry

This chemistry section is incomplete.

You can help by adding to it.

5-MeO-DALT is named for its chemical structure 5-MethOxy-DiALlylTryptamine. It contains two allyl groups bound to the amino group and a 5-methoxy group bound to the indole ring of tryptamine. It is a structural analog of DALT and 5-MeO-DiPT. 5-MeO-DALT is an off-white powder at room temperature.

Pharmacology

Further information: Serotonergic psychedelic

5-MeO-DALT acts as a 5-HT2A partial agonist. The psychedelic effects are believed to come from its efficacy at the 5-HT2A receptors. However, the role of these interactions and how they result in the psychedelic experience remains the subject of ongoing scientific investigation.

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

Ambulance2.png

This toxicity and harm potential section is a stub.

As such, it may contain incomplete or even dangerously wrong information. You can help by expanding or correcting it.
We also recommend that you conduct independent research and use harm reduction practices when using this substance.

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

Anecdotal reports from those who have tried 5-MeO-DALT suggests that there are no negative health effects attributed to simply trying the substance 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-DALT 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-DALT 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-DALT presents cross-tolerance with all psychedelics, meaning that after the consumption of 5-MeO-DALT all psychedelics will have a reduced effect.

Dangerous interactions

Although many psychoactive substances are safe to use on their own, they can quickly become dangerous or even life-threatening when combined with other substances. The following lists some known dangerous combinations, but may not include all of them. A combination that appears to be safe in low doses can still increase the risk of injury or death. Independent research should always be conducted to ensure that a combination of two or more substances is safe to consume.

Legal status

  • Austria: Since January 1, 2012, 5-MeO-DALT is illegal to possess, produce and sell under the NPSG (Neue-Psychoaktive-Substanzen-Gesetz Österreich).[citation needed]
  • China: 5-MeO-DALT is a controlled substance in China as of October 2015.[4]
  • Japan: 5-MeO-DALT became a controlled substance in Japan in April 2007 due to an amendment to the Pharmaceutical Affairs Law.[5]
  • Sweden: 5-MeO-DALT is a Schedule I substance in Sweden as of May 1, 2012. It was published by Medical Products Agency in their regulation LVFS 2012:6.[6]
  • United Kingdom: 5-MeO-DALT is a Class A drug in the UK as it is an ether of the drug 5-HO-DALT,[7] which is a Class A drug as a result of the tryptamine catch-all clause.[8]
  • United States: 5-MeO-DALT is unscheduled in the United States. It may be considered an analogue of 5-MeO-DiPT, a Schedule I drug under the Controlled Substances Act. As such, the sale for human consumption or the use for illicit non-medical or industrial intents and purposes could be prosecuted as crimes under the Federal Analogue Act.[citation needed]
    • Florida: 5-MeO-DALT is a Schedule I controlled substance in the state of Florida, making it illegal to buy, sell, or possess.[9]
