5-MeO-DALT is an extremely powerful illegal hallucinogen (tryptamine) with strong psychedelic effects.
It appears as a white or brownish ‘fluffy’ powder. It has an action of about 2-4 hours. It is usually taken orally or sniffed. It gives very intense ‘other worldly’ visual effects and can be very disturbing particularly for less experienced drug users. It can be a very harsh taste so is sometimes smoked with cannabis. It costs about £15 a gram. Its use is fairly low in UK.
5-MeO-DALT is a psychedelic drug. The high is very intense and can be very euphoric but is not always pleasurable – it is sometimes a frightening experience. As a smoked hallucinogen, 5-MeO-DALT gets to work very rapidly, in just a few seconds. Orally it may take about an hour to work. There are very strong visual effects and hallucinations almost immediately. You can lose all sense of their surroundings as well as time. Heart rate is rapid. Once the effects have peaked, you may become quite insensible with little or no sense of your actual surroundings.
5-MeO-DALT is a very powerful drug so if you are relatively inexperienced it is best avoided. One significant risk from 5-MeO-DALT is self-harm from becoming insensible and unable to co-ordinate your limbs. Some reports suggest tolerance builds quite fast so increasing amounts are taken if you chose to re-dose. If you have any mental health problems or even feeling a bit low then 5-MeO-DALT is a really bad choice because it has such a high potency. It will exacerbate any mental difficulties you are experiencing.
If you are not an experienced drug user, particularly with hallucinogenic drugs like LSD and Salvia Divinorum then it is best to avoid such very strong drugs as 5-MeO-DALT. This drug should not be tried in a public place like a party or a festival and not alone. The people with you should look after your welfare. Avoid alcohol and other strong drugs. If you have a heart condition you should not take 5-MeO-DALT.
The law has recently been revised around these tryptamine substances including 5-MeO DALT – they became Class A in January 2015.
