2,N,N-trimethyltryptamine, 2,N,N-TMT, or 2-Me-DMT is a tryptamine derivative that is a hallucinogenic drug. It was invented by Alexander Shulgin and reported in his book TiHKAL (#34) . It is claimed to show psychoactive effects at a dosage of 50-100mg orally, but these are relatively mild compared to other similar drugs, suggesting that while the 2-methyl group has blocked the binding of metabolic enzymes, it is also interfering with binding to the 5HT2A receptor target that mediates the hallucinogenic effects of these drugs.
