Bufotenin, also spelled bufotenine, is also known under the names 5_hydroxy_DMT (5-OH-DMT) or dimethyl-serotonin and is a tryptamine related to the neurotransmitter serotonin. It is an alkaloid found in many plants that has originally been isolated from the gland secretes of toads, most notably Bufo alvarius, from where it derives the name Bufotenin. Bufotenin is a hallucinogenic compound.
