25D-NBOMe blotters 800 µg – More information
The name 25D-NBOMe, which short-hand for 2C-D-NBOMe, is a derivative of the phenethylamine psychedelic 2C-D. It was first synthesized in 2011 by Martin Hansen and subsequently had its activity explored in 2012 and 2014, where it was established to be a potent agonist at the 5-HT2A receptor that produces effects similar to other members of the 25x-NBOMe series.
It is worth noting that compounds of the NBOMe family are not orally active and should be administered sublingually by placing and letting it absorb into one’s mouth over a period of 15-25 minutes. 25D-NBOMe can also be vaporized and inhaled to cause significantly more rapid and powerful effects as well as a shorter duration. However, this route of administration is highly advised against due to the difficulties of measuring and handling substances that are both active in the microgram range as well as having a low therapeutic index.
25D-NBOMe has no history of human use prior to being sold online as a designer drug in 2010. Extremely little is known about the pharmacological properties, metabolism, and toxicity of 25D-NBOMe in humans, and its closely related analogs like 25I-NBOMe has been associated with many deaths and hospitalizations. Along with its highly sensitive dose-response and unpredictable effects, many reports also suggest that this substance may be overly difficult to use safely. Therefore it is highly advised to approach this poorly understood psychedelic substance with the proper amount of precaution and harm reduction practices when using it.

25D-NBOMe, or 2C-D-NBOMe, is a serotonergic N-benzyl derivative of the substituted phenethylamine psychedelic known as 2C-D. 25D-NBOMe is a substituted phenethylamine with methoxy groups CH3O- attached to carbons R2 and R5 as well as a methyl group attached to carbon R4. It differs from 2C-D structurally through a substitution on the amine (NH2) with a 2-methoxybenzyl (BOMe) group as shown in the image to the right. 25D-NBOMe shares this 2-methoxybenzyl substitution with other chemicals of the NBOMe family. This NBOMe addition contains a methoxy ether CH3O- bound to a benzene ring at R2.
25D-NBOMe is a very new substance, and very little is known about its pharmacological risks or its interaction with other substances. The LD50 has not yet been determined. Due to 25D-NBOMe’s extreme potency, it should not be insufflated (snorted) as this method of administration appears to have led to several deaths from other NBOMe compounds in the past year.
It is strongly recommended that one use harm reduction practices when using this substance.
In terms of its addictive potential, 25D-NBOMe has not been studied formally but many users experience a self-regulating quality. Also, due to its immediate tolerance build up, which lasts up to 2 – 3 weeks after the experience, it is difficult to use this substance compulsively.
Due to the very high potency and seemingly unpredictable effects the margin between a normal and an overdose of NBOMe compounds is extremely small when compared to many other substances. The exact toxic dose is unclear since it seems to depend a lot on personal physiology, rather than predominantly dosage, but various anecdotal reports suggest dangerous side effects start to show up when exceeding 1000 μg and it possibly becoming lethal for the more sensitive people at roughly 2000 μg. Reports of other people surviving much higher doses, sometimes even without any major side effects has been documented as well. There is also the uncertainty of dosage on blotter paper since it is rather difficult to lay such an exact dosage. Insufflating, vaporizing or drinking tinctures of this substance is highly discouraged because of this and has been tied to many documented deaths.
The overdose effects of NBOMes are typically a dangerously high heart rate, blood pressure, hyperthermia and significant vasoconstriction also accompanied by confusion, delusions, panic attacks, aggressive behavior, numbness or pain, amnesia and often seizures. The risks in an overdose include anything from organ failure to cardiac arrest and death. There are also multiple reports of people lethally injuring themselves or falling to death. Benzodiazepines or antipsychotics can help with the psychological effects during an overdose although medical attention should always be called in even a possible overdose of 25I-NBOMe.
