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.

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.

  • UNII:99G781N5IO

A very uncommon psychedelic stimulant and phenethylamine and analogue on mescaline with similar effects. Roughly 5-7 times more potent than mescaline by weight.


It has structural and pharmacological properties similar to its parent drug mescaline as well as to its analogs such as isoproscaline, escaline and allylescaline. The synthesis of proscaline was first published by David E. Nichols in 1977.

Around the same time, Alexander Shulgin sampled and evaluated the chemical at doses up to 60mg, estimating its potency as five times that of mescaline. Shulgin later documented Proscaline in his 1991 book “PiHKAL: A Chemical Love Story”. Today, proscaline is primarily used as a recreational drug, rarely if ever sold on the streets and almost exclusively obtained as a grey area research chemical through the use of online vendors.

It is relatively obscure and has only a short history of human use.


Proscaline contains two methoxy functional groups CH3O- which are attached to carbons R3 and R5 as well as an additional propyloxy group at carbon R4 of the phenyl ring.

Proscaline is the 4-propyloxy analog of mescaline, which means it has one additional carbon at the alkyloxy group than escaline, another closely related mescaline analog.
