3-Methoxyphencyclidine (3-MeO-PCP) is a dissociative anesthetic drug that is sold online as a research chemical.

The effects are often described as more euphoric and mentally clearer than many related compounds.

History

A 1965 article published by Maddox described the synthesis of 2-MeO-PCP and 4-MeO-PCP. Preparation of 3-MeO-PCP was described later in 1979 by Geneste et al.

The compound was first synthesized in 1979 to investigate the structure-activity relationship of phencyclidine derivatives. The activity of 3-MeO-PCP in man was not described until 1999 when a chemist using the pseudonym John Q. Beagle wrote that 3-MeO-PCP was qualitatively similar to PCP with comparable potency.

Dosage

Use a precise milligram scale to avoid overdosing.

Oral
Threshold 1.5-3 mg
Light 3-5 mg
Common 5-8 mg
Strong 8-12 mg

Duration

Oral
Onset 20-40 minutes
Total 4-6 hours
After-effects 2-48 hours

Insufflated onset is approximately 5-15 minutes and the duration is a bit shorter.

Chemistry and Pharmacology

3-MeO-PCP binds to the NMDAN-methyl-D-aspartate receptor. NMDA antagonists are often dissociatives. receptor with higher affinity than PCP and has the highest affinity of the three isomeric anisyl-substitutions, followed by 2-MeO-PCP and 4-MeO-PCP. It is also a SerotoninA monoamine neurotransmitter, biochemically derived from tryptophan, that is primarily found in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, platelets, and central nervous system (CNS) of humans and animals. It is a well-known contributor to feelings of well-being. Reuptake Inhibitor (SRISerotonin Reuptake Inhibitor).

3-MeO-PCP hydrochloride is a white crystalline solid with a melting point of 204-205°C.

3-MeO-PCP has a Ki of 20 nM for the NMDAN-methyl-D-aspartate receptor. NMDA antagonists are often dissociatives. receptor, 216 nM for the serotoninA monoamine neurotransmitter, biochemically derived from tryptophan, that is primarily found in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, platelets, and central nervous system (CNS) of humans and animals. It is a well-known contributor to feelings of well-being. transporter and 42 for the sigma1 receptor.
