What is 4-HO-MET?
4-Hydroxy-N-methyl-N-ethyltryptamine, or 4-HO-MET, is a novel psychedelic substance of the Tryptamine class.
4-HO-MET is chemically related to psilocin, the active ingredient in psilocybin mushrooms (“magic mushrooms”). It was first synthesized by Alexander Shulgin, who documented it in his 1997 book “TiHKAL” (“Tryptamines I Have Known and Loved”).
4-HO-MET Chemical Properties
Chemical Formula: C13H18N2O
Molar Mass: 218.29 g/mol
4-HO-MET is part of the Tryptamine class. All Tryptamines share a structure made up of an amino group that is attached to a bicyclic indole heterocycle which is attached at R3 via an ethyl side chain. It is at R4 of its indole heterocycle that 4-HO-MET is substituted (with a hydroxyl functional group OH-). Within the structure can also be found a methyl group and ethyl chain bound attached to the terminal amine RN of its Tryptamine backbone (MET).
Note: Because minimal clinical research has been conducted, exact dosage levels are unknown and all available dosage information has been gathered via anecdotal reports. 4-HO-MET is not approved for human consumption and is not to be handled without proper laboratory equipment including eye protection and gloves.
What are 4-HO-MET 20mg Pellets?
These pellets are a convenient way of accurately conducting research, without the need for additional lab equipment.
Each pellet contains 20mg of 4-HO-MET fumarate and they can be easily split in half if the researchers chooses to start their experiments cautiously.
What are the Effects of 4-HO-MET?
4-HO-MET is often reported to share some similarities with psilocybin (magic mushrooms) and LSD. Though the differences are much more pronounced and easily distinguishable than those between say 1P-LSD and LSD. 4-HO-MET is generally shorter acting and is seen as a “recreational” psychedelic.
Some of the most commonly reported effects of 4-HO-MET are:
- Spontaneous bodily sensations
- Colour enhancement
- Visual hallucinations – particularly of a geometric nature
- Analysis enhancement
- Fits of laughter and an increased sense of humour
Potential Side Effects of 4-HO-MET
- Muscle contractions
- Increased heart rate
- Excessive yawning
- Increased salivation
- Temperature regulation suppression
While 4-HO-MET is not considered fit for human consumption, some experimental research has indicated that tolerance is built quickly to the substance. This will not only mean a reduced effect from 4-HO-MET if taken again within a short period of time from the initial ingestion, but the tolerance might also affect the results when experiments are done with other chemicals that are known for their psychedelic effects.
It may take 3 days for the tolerance to the effect of 4-HO-MET to be reduced to half and 7 days to return the participant to their original state of tolerance (the estimate is based on the understanding that 4-HO-MET or any other such chemicals are not used within the ‘recovery’ time).
