Psychedelics can be broken down into different classifications based on their chemical structures.
Phenethylamine psychedelics are a group of (mainly) synthetic compounds that interact with the serotonin and dopamine receptors.
The most famous phenethylamines are mescaline, MDMA, 2C-B, 2C-C, and 2C-E.
Alexander Shulgin outlined over 200 phenethylamine substances he invented in his lab in one of his books titled PHIKAL (Phenethylamines I’ve Known & Loved).
2C-B-FLY is a psychedelic phenethylamine closely related to 2C-B. It’s widely considered one of the best psychedelics for arousal & sexual connection.
2C-C (4-Chloro-2,5-dimethoxyphenethylamine) is an obscure psychedelic substance derived from mescaline. Learn about dosage, safety, & effects.
Alexander Shulgin has been dubbed the godfather of psychedelics. He single-handedly invented over 200 new psychedelic substances.
2C-E (2,5-dimethoxy-4-ethylphenethylamine) is a synthetic psychedelic substance related to mescaline & 2C-B.
2C-E is considered one of the more challenging psychedelics.
2C-B is a synthetic psychedelic with effects similar to LSD, psilocybin, & MDMA.
Despite being illegal in most parts of the world, 2C-B is one of the most popular mind-altering substances on Earth.
N-Bombs (NBOMe) is a group of psychedelics often sold as LSD, but is much more dangerous.
Mescaline is a naturally-occurring alkaloid produced in several species of psychoactive cacti — including San Pedro, Peyote, & Peruvian torch.
