3-Me-PCP: Analyzing This Obscure Dissociative Research Chemical

First synthesized in the 1960s but only identified in the illicit market in September 2020, 3-Me-PCP is a recreational designer drug used with dissociative effects.

As an arylcyclohexylamine derivative, 3-Me-PCP is closely related to more popular PCP analogs like 3-MeO-PCP and 3-Me-PCPy.

Whether it be scientific or subjective, there is, regrettably, almost no information on the pharmacological profile of 3-Me-PCP. All we can say for certain is that it produces powerful dissociative effects.

Details about the quality and sensory experience of the trip — obviously the specifics of most interest to users — are sorely lacking.

Tripsitter Safe 3-Me-PCP Guidelines

  • 🐍 I understand why arylcyclohexylamines should be treated with respect
  • ⚖️ I’m familiar with the laws for arylcyclohexylamine class in my country & state
  • 🍄 I’m familiar with and confident in the dose I’m taking
  • 🧪 I’ve tested a sample of the substance I’m using with a drug-testing kit
  • 💊 I’m not mixing any medications or other substances with 3′-Me-PCP
  • 🏔 I’m in a safe & comfortable environment with people I trust
  • 🐺 One of the members of my group is responsible and sober (AKA a trip sitter)
  • ⏳ I have nothing important scheduled for after the trip
  • 🧠 I’m in a sound & healthy state of mind
  • ❤️ I don’t have any underlying health issues — don’t take 3′-Me-PCP if you have underlying heart, neurological, or psychiatric disorders
  • 👭 Use the buddy system — 3′-Me-PCP can remove your inhibition and allow you to make unsafe decisions, always stay with people you trust, and never go out alone

What Are The Effects of 3-Me-PCP?

As a member of the arylcyclohexylamine and, more specifically, an analog of PCP (AKA phencyclidine), we can be reasonably certain about the general profile of 3-Me-PCP.

The subjective experience of 3-Me-PCP is likely quite similar to that of PCP. This would entail an incredibly potent, dissociative, and chaotic trip which users have been known to describe as “I was walking behind myself” or “I was unaffected by time.”

Although the public perception of PCP and its analogs is quite sensationalist, it is true that their effects are unwieldy and unpredictable and may bring on excessive stimulation that can make users feel manic and out of control. These are definitely strong dissociative compounds and should not be taken lightly.
