3C-E crystals – More information
3,5-Dimethoxy-4-ethoxyamphetamine (commonly known as 3C-E or 3C-Escaline) is a synthetic psychedelic compound of the amphetamine chemical class. Although its name suggests it may be related to the 2C-x family, this is not the case since it is the 3-Carbon analog of escaline
Today, 3C-E is used for recreational and research purposes, and exclusively distributed as a gray area research chemical by online vendors. Very little is known about its effects besides its strong body high and weak visuals.

3C-E or 3,5-Dimethoxy-4-ethoxyamphetamine, is a molecule of the substituted amphetamine class. Amphetamines are substituted phenethylamines containing a phenyl ring bound to an amino (NH2) group through an ethyl chain and a methyl group bound to the alpha carbon Rα. 3C-E contains methoxy functional groups OCH3 attached to carbons R3 and R5 and an ethoxy chain OCH2CH3 attached to carbon R4 of the phenyl ring.
3C-E is the amphetamine analog of escaline.
The toxicity and long-term health effects of recreational 3C-E use do not seem to have been studied in any scientific context and the exact toxic dose is unknown. This is because 3C-E is a research chemical with very little history of human usage.
Anecdotal evidence from people within the community who have tried 3C-E suggests that there are no negative health effects attributed to simply trying it by itself at low to moderate doses and using it very sparingly (but nothing can be completely guaranteed). Independent research should always be done to ensure that a combination of two or more substances is safe before consumption.
It is strongly recommended that one use harm reduction practices when using this substance.
3C-E is not habit-forming, and the desire to use it can actually decrease with use. It is most often self-regulating.
Tolerance to the effects of 3C-E is built almost immediately after ingestion. After that, it takes about 3 days for the tolerance to be reduced to half and 7 days to be back at baseline (in the absence of further consumption). 3C-E presents cross-tolerance with all psychedelics, meaning that after the consumption of 3C-E all psychedelics will have a reduced effect.
