2C-T-7 crystals – More information
2,5-Dimethoxy-4-propylthiophenethylamine (also known as 2C-T-7, Blue Mystic, and Beautiful, among others) is a psychedelic substance of the phenethylamine chemical class that produces psychedelic and entactogenic effects when administered.
2C-T-7 was first synthesized by Alexander Shulgin and documented in his book PiHKAL (“Phenethylamines I Have Known and Loved”). It is a member of the 2C-x family of psychedelic phenethylamines, all of which were derived from the systematic modification of the mescaline molecule.
In contrast to other members of the 2C-x family, 2C-T-7 has gained a reputation of being an unpredictable, dose-sensitive psychedelic capable of producing strong visual effects and an intense body load, which can manifest as a dangerous delirium in extreme cases. Many reports indicate that the physical effects are too severe for inexperienced users or those with pre-existing medical conditions.
This particular compound is part of the so-called “magical half-dozen” which refers to Shulgin’s self-rated most important phenethylamine compounds, all of which — with the exception of mescaline — he designed, synthesized and tested on himself. They can be found within the first book of PiHKAL, and are as follows: Mescaline, DOM, 2C-B, 2C-E, 2C-T-2 and 2C-T-7.

2C-T-7, or 2,5-dimethoxy-4-propylthiophenethylamine, is a substituted phenethylamine featuring a phenyl ring bound to an amino (NH2) group through an ethyl chain.
2C-T-7 belongs to the 2C family of phenethylamines, which contain methoxy functional groups CH3O- attached to carbons R2 and R5 of the benzene ring. 2C-T-7 is also substituted at R4 with a propyl thioether group.
2C-T-7 is analogous to 2C-T-2; the two differ by the length of the alkane chain in their thioether functional group.
As of August 2007, there have been at least three reported deaths associated with the use of 2C-T-7. These incidents occurred with insufflated doses of 30 mg or more, or in combination with stimulants such as MDMA,. There have also been a number of reports describing concerning physical side effects and hospitalizations, typically following insufflation.
It is strongly discouraged to administer 2C-T-7 non-orally because this can cause vomiting, numerous negative side effects, or death at high doses. In Erowid’s Fall 2000 2C-T-7 survey, it was reported that the insufflation of 2C-T-7 resulted in more negative side effects than oral administration.
2C-T-7 is not habit-forming and the desire to use it can actually decrease with use. It is most often self-regulating.
Tolerance to the effects of 2C-T-7 are built almost immediately after ingestion. After that, it takes about 3 days for the tolerance to be reduced to half and 7 days to be back at baseline (in the absence of further consumption). 2C-T-7 presents cross-tolerance with all psychedelics, meaning that after the consumption of 2C-T-7 all psychedelics will have a reduced effect.
