Beta-D, or 3,4,5-trimethoxy-beta-dideuterophenethylamine, is a lesser-known psychedelic drug. It is one of the only phenethylamines that contains Deuterium, the other being 4-D. Beta-D exists as a sulfate salt or as a hydrochloride salt. It is the beta-dideutero analog of Mescaline. Beta-D was first synthesized by Alexander Shulgin. In his book PIHKAL (Phenethylamines I Have Known and Loved), the dosage is listed as approximately 200-400 mg for the sulfate salt, and 178-356 mg for the hydrochloride salt. Its effects last for 12 hours. Beta-D has a very rapid onset. It produces an increased appreciation of music and a strong connection with God.[1] Very little data exists about the pharmacological properties, metabolism, and toxicity of Beta-D.
