NMT, or N-methyltryptamine, also known by the name of monomethyltryptamine, is a lesser-known psychedelic drug. It is an alkaloid that has been found in the bark, shoots and leaves of several species of Virola, Acacia and Mimosa. It is found in numerous other plants, many of which also contain the entheogens DMT and 5-MeO-DMT. NMT is also synthetized by humans as a metabolic endproduct of tryptophan (see external links). NMT was first synthesized by Alexander Shulgin. In his book TiHKAL (Tryptamines I Have Known and Loved), neither the dosage nor the duration are known. NMT produces few to no effects. Very little data exists about the pharmacological properties, metabolism, and toxicity of NMT.
