2C-H, or 2,5-dimethoxyphenethylamine, is a lesser-known substituted phenethylamine of the 2C family. 2C-H was first synthesized 1932 by Johannes S. Buck.[1] In the book PiHKAL (Phenethylamines i Have Known And Loved), Alexander Shulgin lists both the dosage and duration of 2C-H as unknown.[2] There is no record of 2C-H trials in humans, as it would likely be destroyed by monoamine oxidase enzymes before causing any significant psychoactive effects.[3] Very little data exists about the pharmacological properties, metabolism, and toxicity of 2C-H.

2C-H has been found in trace amounts by the DEA's south central laboratory in tablets that were suspected of containing MDMA.[citation needed] It is used as a precursor in the synthesis of other substituted phenethylamines.[citation needed]

As of July 9, 2012, 2C-H is a Schedule I substance in the United States, under the Synthetic Drug Abuse Prevention Act of 2012.[4]
