Psychedelic Research Chemicals or RC Chems are new synthetic substances which are structurally similar to the original drug, while being functional analogs. Data on their effects limited due as they’re fairly new and do not have a lot of human consumption history.
Psychedelics are substances (natural or laboratory made) which cause profound changes in a one’s perceptions of reality. While under the influence of hallucinogens, users might hallcuniate visually and auditorily.
This is a commonly used substance with well known effects, but that does not guarantee the substance will be safe. The safety profile has been established based on usage data commonly reported by others.
Disclaimer: Psychedelic drugs offer some of the most powerful and intense psychological experiences. Additionally these substances are illegal in many places. We understand that even though these substances are illegal, their use occurs frequently. We do not condone breaking of the law. By providing accurate information about these substances, we encourage the user to make responsible decisions and practice harm reduction.

A relatively new and popular research chemical with psychedelic properties. Users report an uncomfortable body load with very strong visuals, though with less of a mental aspect than most psychedelics. Commonly mis-sold as LSD, since it is much cheaper to produce. Is considered quite unsafe, and has caused several deaths at ‘regular’ doses.
The name 25I-NBOMe, which short-hand for 2C-I-NBOMe, is a derivative of the phenethylamine psychedelic 2C-I. It was first synthesized and documented in 2003 by Ralf Heim at the Free University of Berlin. It was further researched by a team at Purdue University led by David Nichols.
It has been studied in its 11C radiolabelled form as a potential ligand for mapping the distribution of 5-HT2A receptors in the brain, using positron emission tomography (PET). It is worth noting that compounds of the NBOMe family are not orally active and should be administered sublingually by placing and holding it into one’s mouth and allowing it to absorb over a period of 15-25 minutes. Extremely little is known about the pharmacological properties, metabolism, and toxicity of 25I-NBOMe in humans.
It had no history of human use before being sold online as a designer drug in 2010. . It has been associated with many deaths and hospitalizations.
Anecdotal reports suggest that this substance may be difficult to use safely due to its highly sensitive dose-response and unpredictable effects.
25I-NBOMe is a substituted phenethylamine with methoxy groups CH3O- attached to carbons R2 and R5 as well as an iodine atom attached to carbon R4.
It differs from 2C-I structurally through a substitution on the amine (NH2) with a 2-methoxybenzyl (BOMe) group.
25I-NBOMe shares this 2-methoxybenzyl substitution with other chemicals of the NBOMe family.
This NBOMe addition contains a methoxy ether CH3O- bound to a benzene ring at R2.
