Chemistry

The full name of the chemical is 2-(2,5-dimethoxy-4-nitrophenyl)ethanamine.

Salts of 2C-N have a bright yellow to orange color due to the presence of the nitro group, unlike all other members of the 2C family in which the salts are white.

Dosage

In his book PiHKAL (Phenethylamines i Have Known And Loved), Shulgin lists the dosage range as 100-150 mg. 2C-N is generally taken orally, and effects typically last 4 to 6 hours.[1]

Effects

Shulgin accounts his experiences after ingesting 2C-N:[1]
(with 120 mg) This came on very fast--I was aware of it within a half hour, and it got as far as it would go by an hour. There are similarities to MDMA, but missing is the benign anti-stress component. I am light-headed, and there just might be a little eye wiggling. And then it dropped right off to nothing within a couple of hours. (with 150 mg) There may have been some visual changes, I'm not sure. But the talking was extremely easy. If there were no other things to use, this would be excellent, but there are other compounds available. This doesn't have too high a priority. (with 150 mg) Am I enjoying it? Not exactly, but I am in a good mood. There is not the light-filled energy that some other materials can provide. By six hours, pretty much baseline. Strange material, but okay. Final score: body +3, mind +2, barely.

Law

In the United States, 2C-N is not explicitly scheduled; however, it could be interpreted to fall under the Federal Analogue Act for its chemical and psychoactive similarities to other Schedule I phenethylamines.

2C-N and most (possibly all) other compounds featured in PiHKAL are illegal drugs in the United Kingdom.
