What is 2C-B?
-2C-B (4-Bromo-2,5-dimethoxyphenethylamine) is a psychedelic drug first synthesized in 1974 by Dr. Alexander Shulgin.
-It is considered both a hallucinogen and a mild entactogenic. “Entactogen” means “touching within,” and is a term used by psychiatrists to classify MDMA and related drugs.
-This product belongs to a family of drugs known as the “2Cs.” These include 2C-I, 2C-E, 2C-T7 and many others.
-2C-B and the other 2Cs are usually sold as a white powder in baggies or gel caps, but are sometimes pressed into tablets resembling ecstasy tablets.
What are the effects?
-2C-B is almost always ingested orally and can take anywhere between 30 minutes and a full two hours to take effect.
-A threshold dose (one that can just barely be felt) is between 2 and 5mg. An average dose is around 15 to 25m. And a strong dose is between 25 and 50mg.
-At lower doses it produces a mild entactogenic effect, with few or no hallucinations.
-At higher doses it produces intense visual effects. Moving objects leave “trails.” Surfaces may appear covered with geometric patterns, and may appear to be moving or “breathing.” Colors may appear from nowhere.
-Music can affect the 2C-B visual experience, causing the patterns, colors and movements to change. This blending of sight and sound is called “synesthesia.”
-The visual effects of 2C-B can be more intense than those produced by LSD or mushrooms. Yet most users report a relatively clear head space with significantly less psychological confusion.
-The effects of 2C-B last approximately four to six hours, with little to no residual effects.
-2C-I, 2C-E, 2C-T7 and the other 2Cs are dosed differently than 2C-B and have different effects, including onset and duration.
