DOM, a hallucinogen related to mescaline and amphetamine and designated "STP" by hippies, along with DOET, the ethyl homologue of DOM, were given in small doses to normal subjects in a double-blind study. Both drugs increased self-awareness and produced mild euphoria but no hallucinogenic or psychotomimetic effects. The two drugs "freed up" subjects' word associations without impairing memory or concentration; in fact, DOM enhanced performance on serial learning tasks. Although DOM did not affect visual discrimination, it altered the perception of tachistoscopically presented TAT cards.
Dec 1, 1963 DOM is first synthesized by Alexander Shulgin in 1963 and is first bio-assayed in December of that year.
1967 DOM (STP) first appears on the street in San Francisco, sometimes being confused with LSD and causing problems due to its long duration.
Jan 14, 1967 Human Be-In in San Francisco is attended by 20,000. 5,000 doses of DOM (STP) were distributed for free, unfortunately, they were distributed in approximately 10-15 mg doses, 5-10 times higher than Shulgin had recommended.
Apr 2, 1968 DOM (STP) was placed under DACA control in the United States, making it illegal to possess, sell, or manufacture except for personal use.
Sep 21, 1973 DOM is placed in Schedule I of the CSA in the U.S. making it illegal to buy, sell, or possess.
Slang for the long lasting psychedelic 2,5-dimethoxy-4-methylamphetamine, also known as DOM. STP was said to stand for Serenity, Tranquility, and Peace. Has properties related to LSD. The high comes in at around half an hour after swallowing the tablet and is at peak at 2 to 3 hours depending on the quantity consumed. High can last 14 to 20 hours depending on dosage (14 to 20 according to 3 - 10 mg of STP consumed)
At 1 mg: Eyes dilated, mouth somewhat dry, and eerie feeling.
At 2.3 mg: Mood elevation, emotional effects and colors become radiant.
At 3 mg: Observation enhanced. Brighter and more colors
At 4 mg: Arousing sensation. Colors intensify and slight hallucinations occur. Effects similar to LSD and Mescaline.
At 5 mg: Magnification of light, colors, and odors. Slight feeling of unhappiness along with joy. Hallucination occurs but can be stopped at will.
At 8 mg: Music and visual warp into one being. "An off-beat fantasy."
At 10 mg: Same as 8 mg, but effects come sooner and lasts a little longer.
At 12 mg: Tremors, feeling of paralysis with music and visuals binding into an erotic fantasy.
Anyone planning on attempting to take STP should know that the effects may take up to an hour or two to show, so taking more dose is strictly unrecommended.
visual distortions, a 'stoned' feeling, sense of well being.
DOM is a substituted amphetamine, so it can cause you to test positive for amphetamines 3 to 7 days after dosing.
Its use was short-lived due to its side effects:
Over the years, DOM has gained a reputation for being a highly dose-sensitive psychedelic that is often sold on blotting paper and known for its strong visuals, body load and neutral, analytical headspace. Many reports also indicate that the effects of this chemical may be overly difficult to use for those who are not already experienced with psychedelics.
Effects of this drug include substantial perceptual changes such as blurred vision, multiple images, vibration of objects, visual alterations, distorted shapes, enhancement of details, slowed passage of time, increased sexual drive and pleasure, and increased contrasts. It may cause mystical experiences and changes in consciousness. It may also cause pupillary dilation and a rise in systolic blood pressure.
