Overview: 4-AcO-MET is also referred to as 4-Acetoxy-MET, 4-Acetoxy-N-methyl-N-ethyltryptamine, and metacetin. It is a psychedelic tryptamine that was first distributed by online vendors in 2009 (Kelleher et al., 2011).
Side Effects & Adverse Reactions:
4-AcO-MET is a very new substance, and little is known about its side effects, adverse reactions, long term damage, and/or addiction potential. Remember, research chemicals are experimental chemicals that are not approved for human consumption. This is because not enough data exists currently about their effects in humans. Although some people are willing to ingest the research chemical 4-AcO-MET, it is unreasonable to assume that it is in any way safe to use recreationally.
