2C-I (2,5-dimethoxy-4-iodophenethylamine is a psychedelic phenethylamine of the 2C family.[1] It was first synthesized by Alexander Shulgin and described in his 1991 book PiHKAL: A Chemical Love Story. The drug is used recreationally for its psychedelic and entactogenic effects and is sometimes confused for the analog 25I-NBOMe, nicknamed "Smiles," in the media.[2][3][4]

History[edit]

Recreational use[edit]

In the early 2000s, 2C-I was sold in Dutch smart shops after the drug 2C-B was banned.[5]

According to the US government's Drug Enforcement Administration, 2C-I is taken orally or snorted in a powder form.[6]

Effects[edit]

Visual effects of 2C-I exposure have been described by many users as iterating fractals, along with a more generalized shift in perception and/or cognition.[7]

Toxicity and Dosage[edit]

A standard oral dose of 2C-I is between 10-25 mg. Recent reports suggest that 2C-I is just slightly more potent than 2C-B (slightly less material needed for the same level of effects). [7]

Duration[edit]

Oral 2C-I takes between 45-75 minutes to take effect.[7] The primary effects of 2C-I last approximately 5-8 hours when taken orally. [7]
