Responsible Research with 4-HO-EPT
Always practice responsible research. You should read and educate yourself before undertaking research with any chemical. The Psychonaut Wiki has some very helpful resources and information on 4-HO-EPT. Never conduct research with a chemical without learning about it first.

What is 4-HO-EPT?
4-Hydroxy-N-ethyl-N-propyltryptamine (also known as 4-HO-EPT or Eprocin) is a novel synthetic psychedelic substance of the tryptamine chemical class that produces psychedelic effects when administered. It is structurally related to psilocin (4-HO-DMT), the active component in psilocybin mushrooms, and produces similar effects.
Very little data exists about the pharmacological properties, metabolism, and toxicity of 4-HO-EPT. It has no history of human use before being sold online as a research chemical in 2016. It remains obscure and is either used recreationally or for research purposes.
4-HO-EPT, or 4-hydroxy-N,N-diethyltryptamine, is a synthetic indole molecule of the tryptamine class. Tryptamines share a core structure comprised of a bicyclic indole heterocycle attached at R3 to an amino group via an ethyl side chain. 4-HO-EPT is substituted at R4 of its indole heterocycle with a hydroxyl functional group OH−. It also contains a propyl and ethyl chain bound to the terminal amine RN of its tryptamine backbone (EPT).
Like with most psychedelic tryptamines, 4-HO-EPT is thought to act principally as a 5-HT2A partial agonist. The psychedelic effects are believed to come from 4-HO-EPT’s binding efficacy at the 5-HT2A receptors. However, the role of these interactions and how they result in the psychedelic experience continues to remain elusive.
Some of the most commonly reported effects are:
- Spontaneous physical sensations

- Symmetrical texture repetition
- After images
- Brightness alteration
- Hallucinatory states
- Internal hallucination
- Conceptual thinking
- Cognitive euphoria
- Emotion enhancement
- Immersion enhancement
- Increased music appreciation
- Memory suppression
- Ego death
- Novelty enhancement
- Personal bias suppression
- Thought loops
- Time distortion
- Feelings of Unity and interconnectedness
Potential Side Effects
