EiPT is a chemical in the tryptamine family, and produces psychedelic and hallucinogenic effects. It was probably first synthesized by Alexander Shulgin.

Chemistry[edit]

EiPT is short for N-ethyl-N-isopropyl-tryptamine. The full chemical name of this structure is N-ethyl-N-[2-(1H-indol-3-yl)ethyl]propan-2-amine. EiPT is a tryptamine, which all belong to a larger family of compounds known as indolethylamines. EiPT is closely related to the compounds diethyltryptamine (DET) and DIPT.

Dosage[edit]

In his book TiHKAL, Alexander Shulgin lists a dosage for EiPT as being 24-40 mg taken orally.

Effects[edit]

Very little is known about the psychopharmacological properties of EiPT, but reports suggest it produces psychedelic effects that can last 4-6 hours. According to Shulgin, this compound tends to produce nausea, dysphoria, and other unpleasant side-effects. It also lacks the hallucinatory and visual properties usually associated with psychedelic drugs.

Dangers[edit]

There have been no reported deaths or hospitalizations from EiPT, but its safety profile is unknown.

Legality[edit]

EiPT is unscheduled and uncontrolled in the United States, but possession and sales of EiPT could be prosecuted under the Federal Analog Act because of its structural similarities to DET.
