What is 5-MeO-DALT?
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. Reports linked to the detection of 5-MeO-DALT began to surface in 2007.
Chemical Properties of 5-MeO-DALT
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.
What are the Effects of 5-MeO-DALT?
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.
