Psychoactive Research chemicals are new synthetic substances that are structurally similar to the original drug, while being functional analogs. Research on the effects of, and treatment for, abuse of these drugs is limited due to the fact that they’re fairly new and have avoided mainstream notice. Research chemicals do not have a lot of human consumption data, and thus harm-reduction and special care should be taken if choosing to ingest them.
Psychedelics are drugs which cause profound changes in a one’s perceptions of reality, otherwise known as hallucinations. While under the influence of hallucinogens, users might see images, hear sounds or feel sensations. These chemicals offer some of the most intense psychological experiences and care should be taken when ingesting them.
Disclaimer: Psychedelic drugs offer some of the most power 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.
Practice Harm Reduction. Proceed with Caution.

A psychedelic phenethylamine and benzofuran that is very potent and has a long duration. Was briefly sold as “2C-B-FLY” in 2005/6 and has lead to multiple deaths.
It produces an array of extremely dose-sensitive psychedelic effects when administered. It was first synthesized in 1998 by Matthew Parker from DOB-FLY. Bromo-DragonFLY is extremely potent and produces unusually long effects which reportedly can last up to several days.
It is considered to have one-third the potency of LSD by weight, making it remarkably potent relative to the vast majority of psychedelics. Due to its high potency and unpredictable dose-response, many reports indicate that the effects of this substance may end up being overly difficult to use safely for those who are not already experienced with hallucinogens. Specifically, given that the dosage and duration of this substance have yet not been fully determined, users are advised to start at the lowest possible, intake only through the oral routes of administration, and never re-dose during any time throughout the experience.
Very little is known about the pharmacology, metabolism and toxicity about Bromo-DragonFLY in humans. It briefly gained popularity among research chemicals circa 2010 until several deaths occurred after the substance was accidentally mislabeled and sold as 2C-B-FLY, leading to its prohibition. Bromo-DragonFLY has never been documented as being sold on the street and has seemingly stopped production on research chemicals gray market.
Due to its novelty and extremely short history of human usage, all information related to the use of this compound should be received with extreme caution. It is strongly recommended that one use the utmost harm reduction practices if choosing to take this substance.
Bromo-DragonFLY is an atypical psychedelic phenethylamine which is closely analogous to DOB; it is the difuran analog to DOB, where it incorporates the methoxy groups bound to R2 and R5 of DOB into five member furan rings fused to the central benzene ring. Bromo-DragonFLY belongs to a group of phenethylamine derivatives referred to as the DragonFLY compounds, named for their insect-like appearance of two “wing-like” furan rings fused on the opposite sides of the central benzene ring. It is worth noting that the R-isomer of the molecule is considerably more active than the other and as such doses must be adjusted accordingly.

|Marguis Test Result|
The hallucinogenic effect of bromo-DragonFLY is mediated by its agonist activity at the 5-HT2A serotonin receptor. Bromo-DragonFLY also has a high binding affinity for the 5-HT2B and 5-HT2C serotonin receptors, and is most accurately described as a non-subtype selective 5-HT2 agonist, as it is actually twice as potent an agonist for 5-HT2C receptors as for 5-HT2A, as well as being less than 5x selective for 5-HT2A over 5-HT2B. It is further suggested that Bromo-DragonFLY almost completely inhibits MAO-A activity, which makes itself unable to metabolize. This is probably the cause for an abnormal duration of action. However, the role of these interactions and how they result in the psychedelic experience continues to remain elusive.
- Stimulation & Sedation - At light dosages this compound is generally stimulating but in a gentle, non forceful manner, similar to that of 2C-B or mescaline. However, at heavy doses, one may find the stimulation rise to an uncomfortable degree. However, significant sedation may occur instead. Sedation levels are reported to be similar to that of 2C-C or 2C-T-7.
- Spontaneous bodily sensations - The "body high" of Bromo-DragonFLY can be described as a pleasurable, warm, soft, all-encompassing and mild tingling sensation. It is comparable to that of a milder mescaline, 2C-B or 2C-E experience.
- Tactile enhancement
- Bodily control enhancement
- Temperature regulation suppression
- Increased heart rate
- Increased blood pressure
- Muscle contractions
- Muscle spasms
- Muscle cramps
- Stomach cramps
- Mouth numbing
- Olfactory hallucination
- Gustatory hallucination
- Increased salivation
- Pupil dilation
- Teeth grinding
- Vasoconstriction - Bromo-DragonFLY is a powerful vasoconstrictor which can become dangerous during overdoses.
- Analysis enhancement
- Conceptual thinking
- Creativity enhancement
- Emotion enhancement
- Empathy, affection, and sociability enhancement - This compound reportedly produces entactogenic effects on a level which is less intense than that of 2C-B or MDMA, but similar to that of mescaline or 2C-E.
- Memory suppression
- Increased music appreciation
- Increased libido
- Immersion enhancement
- Novelty enhancement
- Personal bias suppression
- Thought acceleration
- Thought connectivity
- Time distortion
- Drifting (melting, breathing, morphing and flowing) - In comparison to other psychedelics, this effect can be described as highly detailed, slow and smooth in motion, detailed in appearance, and cartoon-like in style. It is very similar the visual aspects of 2C-B or mescaline.
- Colour shifting
- Depth perception distortions
- Perspective distortions
- Symmetrical texture repetition
Bromo-DragonFLY visual geometry can be described as more similar in appearance to that of mescaline, 2C-B and 2C-D than psilocin or ayahuasca. It can be comprehensively described through its style variations as detailed in complexity, abstract in form, synthetic in style, structured in organization, brightly lit & multicoloured in scheme, glossy in shading, flat in edges, large in size, fast in speed, smooth in motion, angular in corners, non-immersive in depth and consistent in intensity. Bromo-DragonFLY has a contradictory combination of "naturalness", but also presents a "neon and digital" observation. At higher doses, users are significantly more likely to experience a state of Level 8B visual geometry over Level 8A.
Bromo-DragonFLY produces a full range of high level hallucinatory states in a fashion that is comparable to mescaline or 2C-E. This is more consistent and reproducible than that of many other commonly used psychedelics such as 2C-B or LSD. It tends to occur at heavier doses and integrates seamlessly with the accompanying geometry. These effects generally include:
- Internal hallucination (autonomous entities; settings, sceneries, and landscapes; perspective hallucinations and scenarios and plots)
