25B-NBOMe (NBOMe-2C-B, Cimbi-36, Nova, BOM 2-CB) is a derivative of the phenethylamine psychedelic 2C-B, discovered in 2004 by Ralf Heim at the Free University of Berlin. It acts as a potent full agonist for the 5HT2A receptor.[1][2][3][4][5] Anecdotal reports from users[citation needed] suggest 25B-NBOMe to be an active hallucinogen at a dose of as little as 250–500 µg,[citation needed] making it a similar potency to other phenethylamine derived hallucinogens such as Bromo-DragonFLY. Duration of effects lasts about 12–16 hours.[citation needed]

The carbon-11 labeled version of this compound ([11C]Cimbi-36) was synthesized and validated as a radioactive tracer for positron emission tomography (PET) in Copenhagen.[6][7][8][9] As a 5-HT2A receptor agonist PET radioligand, [11C]Cimbi-36 was hypothesized to provide a more functional marker of these receptors. Also, [11C]Cimbi-36 is investigated as a potential marker of serotonin release and thus could serve as an indicator of serotonin levels in vivo. [11C]Cimbi-36 is now undergoing clinical trials as a PET-ligand in humans.[10][11]

Toxicity and harm potential[edit]

25B-NBOMe has been used in clinical trials with an evaluation dose for safety consideration to humans of only 1 microgram. Such a dose is only 1/300th the dose expected to be hallucinogenic to humans and it is expected that recreational use would greatly exceed doses determined to be safe to humans.[12] One case has been reported on where 25B-NBOMe was identified as the cause of death for a 17-year-old boy.[13] The drug was also implicated in the death of an 18-year old male, however it was not reported whether the presence of the drug was confirmed postmortem.[14] Several deaths have been attributed to its close analogue 25I-NBOMe.

Analogues and derivatives[edit]

Legal status[edit]

Canada[edit]

As of October 31, 2016; 25B-NBOMe is a controlled substance (Schedule III) in Canada.[15]

Russia[edit]

Banned as a narcotic drug since May 5, 2015.[16]

Sweden[edit]

In Sweden, the Riksdag added 25B-NBOMe to schedule I ("substances, plant materials and fungi which normally do not have medical use") as narcotics in Sweden as of August 1, 2013, published by Medical Products Agency in their regulation LVFS 2013:15 listed as 25B-NBOMe 2-(4-bromo-2,5-dimetoxifenyl)-N-(2-metoxibensyl)etanamin.[17]

United Kingdom[edit]

This substance is a Class A drug in the United Kingdom as a result of the N-benzylphenethylamine catch-all clause in the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971.[18]


United States[edit]

In November 2013, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration placed 25B-NBOMe (along with 25I-NBOMe and 25C-NBOMe) in Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act, making it illegal to manufacture, buy, possess, process, or distribute.[19]

China[edit]

As of October 2015 25B-NBOMe is a controlled substance in China.[20]

Czech Republic[edit]

25B-NBOMe is banned in the Czech Republic.[21]
