"I was interested in creating something like a hideous evil twin for LSD or DMT so I chose to look for a serotonin like structure. All serotonergic hallucinogens have a common structural motif, which is an aromatic ring with a two carbon side chain that terminates in an amine; the aromatic ring in amphetamines is benzene, and the aromatic in tryptamines is indole. DMT and LSD share a tryptamine motif, however the skeleton of LSD is augmented with additional rings. One of the reasons that LSD is so powerful (50 - 200 ug dose according to erowid compared with 20 - 50mg for DMT) is likely that these rings lock the tryptamine skeleton into the right geometry to interact with the serotonin receptor. I went ahead and modded the tryptamine system with a support ring lifted directly from the LSD skeleton, however I did not use the whole thing, so my compound doesn’t resemble LSD that closely. Oxygen and sulfur ethers are also featured on some rings, and seem to have a potentiating effect. Methoxy groups are found in 5-MEO DMT and Mescaline. I added a 5 -MEO group to my compound for this reason. Psychadelics containing thioethers (sulfur with carbon chains attached) are rare, and extremely unpredictable. All the ones that i know of are synthetic nightmare chemicals that people have unreal experiences on.
4-methylthioamphetamine is similar to MDMA except that I have heard it described as considerably more intense and less pleasant. It was briefly legal in Amsterdam smart shops where it caused several fatalities. So of course, when prompted by Europharm, I added a thio group as well.
We extracted the basic chemical from fish, with the exception of the thioethers which were later added to the augmented compound in question. I’d say more, but at this point I already am nervous about my own wellbeing and feel I have said too much.
P.S. - I’d been given a request that the drug be dispersable in bath salts, and luckily, we could, and did. You only need to protonate the amine group with an acid like HCl, and you have the drug in water soluble form. Its the same thing as the transition between ‘freebase’ cocaine and the Cocaine HCl that republicans prefer. I hope this helps you. Please respect my privacy and I will respect yours.” -name omitted
