DPT powder with a formal name of N,N-Dipropyltryptamine is a psychedelic drug in the tryptamine family often referred to as The Light. The chemical compound is either a crystalline hydrochloride salt or an oily crystalline base. The molecular formula is C16H24N2 with a molecular weight of 244.38 g/mol, an average mass of 244.375198 Da, and a monoisotopic mass of 244.193954 Da.
DPT is also known as 1H-indole-3-ethanamine, N,N-dipropyl-, 4-22-00-04323, 61-52-9, N-[2-(1H-Indol-3-yl)ethyl]-N-propyl-1-propanamin and N-(2-(1H-Indol-3-yl)ethyl)-N-propylpropan-1-amin.
N,N-Dipropyltryptamine (DPT, also known as “The Light”) is a psychedelic drug belonging to the tryptamine family, first reported in 1973. It is found either as its crystalline hydrochloride salt or as an oily or crystalline base. It has not been found to occur endogenously. It is a close structural homologue of dimethyltryptamine.
While dipropyltryptamine is chemically similar to dimethyltryptamine (DMT), its psychoactive effects are markedly different.
The most prominent features of the DPT experience are increased significance or intensity of music, colors take on a new intensity or appearance, the body may have a buzz or vibratory feeling, a pleasant sensation of warmth, complete ego loss, apparitions of faces.
While seeing other beings under the influence of DPT may occasionally occur, the perspective is more as an observer or watcher, as contrasted to the more personal real-feeling entity contact reported with DMT.
Also sometimes reported is a loss of ego boundary; for example, the boundary between the self and a table may not be easy to distinguish. Difficulty distinguishing other boundaries is common as well. For example, different colors may be difficult to distinguish. Other sensory input may also become blended. This is distinct from synaesthesia.
A user may also encounter the feeling of experiencing the life of someone else, or having had all possible experiences simultaneously. One may have the experience of seeing the universe from different locations in space and time.
Visuals are often geometric, wavy, and/or spiraled. Other visual distortions and hallucinations tend to be experienced in the peripheral vision. The self or the environment may take on a stylized cartoon-like look or feel. Pleasant flashes of light and sparkles are also common.
