4-Desoxymescaline, or 4-methyl-3,5-dimethoxyphenethylamine, is a mescaline analogue related to other psychedelic phenethylamines. It is commonly referred to as DESOXY. DESOXY was discovered by Alexander Shulgin and published in his book PiHKAL.

Effects[edit]

The effects of DESOXY vary significantly from mescaline, despite their chemical similarity. Users report an elevated mood and some hallucinations, although nothing as intense as visuals reported on mescaline[citation needed]. There has been some suggestion that the dosage level of 40–120 mg might be too small to achieve mescaline-like effects, but since this compound has undergone only limited human experiments it may be unsafe to increase the dosage.

Dosage[edit]

A typical dosage is within the range of 40–120 mg and lasts 6–8 hours.[1]

Legality[edit]

In 1970 the Controlled Substances Act placed mescaline into Schedule I in the United States. It is similarly controlled in other nations. Depending on whether or not it is intended for human consumption, 4-desoxymescaline could be considered an analogue of mescaline, under the Federal Analogue Act and similar bills in other countries, making it illegal to manufacture, buy, possess, or distribute without a DEA or related license.

DESOXY is also an isomer of 2C-D which would cause it to fall within the definitions outlined by the Federal Analogue Act
