Trifluoromescaline (TF-M) is a derivative of the phenethylamine hallucinogen mescaline, which has a trifluoromethoxy group replacing the central methoxy group of mescaline. Synthesis of this compound was first reported by Daniel Trachsel in 2011, alongside many other related compounds.[1][2] Trifluoromescaline was found to be one of the most potent compounds in the series, with a reported dosage of 15-40mg (and 60mg being described as a "strong overdose"), and a slow onset of action and long duration of effects, lasting 14-24 hours or more.[3]
