Chemical structure of DESOXY

4-desoxymescaline, or DESOXY, is a phenethylamine and mescaline analogue with psychedelic properties. It was discovered by Alexander Shulgin and published in PiHKAL (Phenethylamines i Have Known and Loved).

Synonyms[edit | edit source]


Legality[edit | edit source]

(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.

Dosage[edit | edit source]

A typical dosage is within the range of 40-120 mg and lasts 6-8 hours.

Effects[edit | edit source]

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 had only limited human experiments it may be unsafe to increase the dosage.
