4-Methallyloxy-3,5-dimethoxyphenethylamine (also known as methallylescaline and MAL) is a synthetic psychedelic substance of the phenethylamine chemical class. It is reported to produce hallucinogenic and stimulant effects comparable to that of other mescaline analogs.
Stimulation – In terms of its effects on the physical energy levels of the user, methallylescaline is usually considered to be very energetic and stimulating. For example, when taken in any environment it will usually encourage physical activities such as running, walking, climbing or dancing. In comparison, other more commonly used psychedelics such as psilocin are generally sedating and relaxed.
Spontaneous bodily sensations – The “body high” of methallylescaline can be described as proportionally intense in comparison to its accompanying visual and cognitive effects. It is manifested in a number of forms including an intense soft, warm glow that grows over the body and is capable of becoming extremely physically euphoric. This is most similar to MDMA and MDA and is consistently manifested throughout the experience. This is contrasted by an intensely pleasurable yet sharp, cold electric tingling sensation which moves up and down the body. This is most similar to mescaline and is also consistently manifested throughout the trip. The final physical effect noticed throughout the experience is an intense energetic pins and needles sensation that manifests itself in the form of a continuously shifting and tingling sensation that travels up and down the body in spontaneous waves. This is most similar to 2C-I and is not entirely consistent throughout the trip.
Physical euphoria – Relative to other psychedelics, methallylescaline has been noted for the bodily or physically euphoric aspect that is vaguely reminiscent of other phenethylamines like MDA.
Tactile enhancement – Feelings of enhanced tactile sensations are consistently present at moderate levels throughout most methallylescaline experiences. If Level 8A geometry is reached, an intense sensation of suddenly becoming aware of and being able to feel every single nerve ending across a person’s entire body all at once is consistently present.
Nausea – Nausea is commonly reported when consumed in moderate to high doses and either passes instantly once the user has vomited or gradually fades by itself as the peak sets in.
Muscle cramps – This is uncommon, but is more likely to occur if one is malnourished, dehydrated, or engaged in strenuous activity.
