25D-NBOMe (or NBOMe-2C-D) is a derivative of the phenethylamine derived hallucinogen 2C-D. It acts in a similar manner to related compounds such as 25I-NBOMe, which is a potent agonist at the 5HT 2A receptor.  25D-NBOMe has been sold as a street drug since 2010 and produces similar effects in humans to related compounds such as  25I-NBOMe and 25C-NBOMe. It was banned as a  Temporary Class Drug in the UK on 10 June 2013 after concerns about its recreational use.
Legality [ edit ]
As of October 2015 25D-NBOMe is a controlled substance in China.
added 25D-NBOMe to schedule I ( Sveriges riksdag "substances, plant materials and fungi which normally do not have medical use") as narcotics in Sweden as of Aug 1, 2013, published by in their regulation Medical Products Agency LVFS 2013:15 listed as 25D-NBOMe 2-(2,5-dimetoxi-4-metylfenyl)-N-(2-metoxibensyl)etanamin.

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.

Unregulated at a federal and state level, though arguably may contravene the
