2C-T-13 or 2,5-dimethoxy-4-(β-methoxyethylthio)phenethylamine is a
psychedelic phenethylamineof the 2C family. It was presumably first synthesized by Alexander Shulginand reported in his book "PiHKAL (Phenethylamines i Have Known And Loved)".
2C-T-13 is the 2 carbon homologue of Aleph-13. The full chemical name is 2- [4-(2-
methoxy ethyl thio)-2,5-di methoxy phenyl] ethanamine. The drug has structural properties similar to mescalineand other drugs in the 2C-T series, with the most closely related compounds being 2C-T-7and 2C-T-21.
The dosage range of 2C-T-13 is typically 25 - 40 mg and its duration is approximately 6-8
hoursaccording to Shulgin. 2C-T-13 produces many closed-eye visuals and geometric patterns. It also produces slight visual distortion. [CitePiHKAL]
The mechanism that produces 2C-T-13’s hallucinogenic and entheogenic effects has not been specifically established, however it is most likely to result from action as a 5-HT2A serotonin receptor
agonistin the brain, a mechanism of action shared by all of the hallucinogenic tryptamines and phenethylamines for which the mechanism of action is known.
The toxicity of 2C-T-13 is not well documented. 2C-T-13 is slightly less potent than 2C-T-7, but it may be expected that at higher doses it would display similar toxicity to that of other phenethylamines of the 2C-T family. Other phenethylamine derivatives substituted with an alkylthio group at the 4 position such as
2C-T-7and 4-MTAare known to act as selective monoamine oxidaseA inhibitors, a side effect which can lead to lethal serotonin syndromewhen they are combined with stimulantdrugs. Most confirmed fatalities involving 2C-T drugs involve their combination with other hard drugs such as alcohol, ecstasy or cocaine.
2C-T-13 is not illegal, but possession and sales of 2C-T-13 could be prosecuted under the
Federal Analog Actbecause of its structural similarities to 2C-T-7.
