4-desoxymescaline, 4-methyl-3,5-dimethoxyphenethylamine, is a phenethylamine and mescaline analogue with psychedelic properties. It is usually known as DESOXY. It was discovered by Alexander Shulgin and published in PiHKAL.
Additional recommended knowledge
(US) In 1970 the Controlled Substances Act placed mescaline into Schedule I. It is similarly controlled in other nations. 4-desoxymescaline could be considered an analogue of mescaline, under the Federal Analogue Act, making it illegal to manufacture, buy, possess, or distribute without a DEA license.
A typical dosage is within the range of 40-120 mg and lasts 6-8 hours.
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. 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.
