Brief overview - What is 4-HO-MET?
4-hydroxy-N-methyl-N-ethyltryptamine, aka Metocin; is a synthetic psychedelic tryptamine.
Metocin was first synthesized by Alexander Shulgin as detailed in his book TiHKAL. It has a short history of human use and should be approached cautiously. No deaths have been reported, though some users report elevated heart rate and body tremors. There is no evidence of physical dependence. Metocin is an analog of psilocin (4-HO-DMT) and is described as being similar in effect.
