These are the Tryptamines in your Neighbourhood!

 Tryptamines vs. Phenethylamines

Although some hallucinogenic substances don’t fall into either category, a vast majority of known hallucinogens are either tryptamines or phenethylamines. Tryptamines and Phenethylamines are classes of chemicals encompassing many psychoactive substances that have been used both for medicine and spiritual awakening for thousands of years.

Amphetamines such as MDMA, methamphetamine, and popular study drugs Adderall (dl-amphetamine) and Dexedrine (dextroamphetamine) alongside of research chemicals such as 2-CB and 2-CE are all categorized as phenethylamines. Most are known to be empathogenic and many of them have stimulant properties. Most phenethylamines have psychedelic properties and some (such as amphetamines or methamphetamine) are stimulants.

LSD, Moxy, Foxy and DMT are examples of popular tryptamines that are psychoactive. Most psychoactive tryptamines are hallucinogens and are known to provide intense psychedelic trips. It is important to mentally and emotionally prepare yourself for your trip. If taken carelessly, intense psychedelics may cause bad trips. If you are prone to difficult experiences, think carefully before trying new psychedelic drugs!

 Meet Moxy and Foxy

Moxy (5-MeO-MiPT) and Foxy (5-MeO-DiPT) are hallucinogenic tryptamines that were discovered in 1980 by Dr. Alexander Shulgin. They have similar effects and duration; the drugs often are compared as sister chemicals they are not the same drug, however.
Foxy and Moxy have a wide range of effects: at small doses they leave tactile sensitivity, but they can bring audio distortions, visual texture enhancements and other perception changes.

Individuals currently going through emotional or psychological upheaval should be careful about using psychedelics such as Moxy or Foxy, as they can trigger even more difficulty. Individuals with a family history of schizophrenia or early onset mental illness should be extremely careful because psychedelics have been known to trigger latent psychological and mental problems. Individuals with seizure or convulsive disorders or heart problems may be at higher risk for health problems when taking psychedelics.

Dosage & Duration

The dosage of these tryptamines are very minute, and it is very important to have a milligram-precise scale (0.00x) due to a small margin for error.

Depending on how much and how recently the user has orally consumed, Foxy and Moxy take around 10-20 minutes to kick in. Moxy may be taken orally or vaporized in a pipe. When freebased the effect usually comes on within seconds. Both drugs last approximately 4-6 hours.

If you are taking an MAOI or thinking about combining multiple tryptamines, it is important to consider that they can massively potentiate your trip.

Threshold dose (oral): 4mg
Threshold dose (smoked): 12mg

Threshold dose (oral): 6mg

Potency Problems

The intensity if your trip will increase exponentially when you add more to your dose. When you add 2mg to the 4mg (oral) or 6mg to the 12mg (smoked) threshold dose, it doubles the intensity of the experience. For example, 8mg is 4 times the potency of an orally ingested 4mg threshold dose for Moxy.


Currently, both 5-MeO-MiPT and 5-MeO-DiPT are not listed as controlled substances in Canada.
