Overview: MET is also referred to as N-methyl-N-ethyltryptamine and methylethyltryptamine. It is a psychedelic tryptamine that is closely related to DMT and DET. People have reported using MET orally, through insufflation, and by vaporizing it (Erowid, 2011). Although the subjective effects vary from person to person, MET has been compared to DMT because of its rushing sensation and its open eye and closed eye visuals. Shulgin (1995) also briefly discussed MET in Tihkal.
Side Effects & Adverse Reactions:
MET is a very new substance, and little is known about its side effects, adverse reactions, long term damage, and/or addiction potential. According to Erowid (2011), some of the negative effects reported by recreational users include:
- Nasal pain (when used via insufflation)
- Unpleasant taste (when vaporized)
- Hard on the lungs to smoke
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 MET, it is unreasonable to assume that it is in any way safe to use recreationally.
