NEW DRUG ALERT FROM VICTORIAN DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH
25B-NBOH (mis)sold as powdered ‘LSD’ in VICTORIA.
Associated with several recent hospitalisations and no other drugs were involved.
25B-NBOH (also known as 2C-B-NBOH and NBOH-2C-B) is novel synthetic psychedelic substance of the phenethylamine chemical class that produces an array of visually-dominant and stimulating psychedelic effects when administered. It is a closely related analog of 25B-NBOMe and is reported to share most of its properties with the exception of a moderately reduced potency and a shorter duration.
25B-NBOH’s extreme potency means it should not be insufflated (snorted) as this method of administration has been associated with many deaths and hospitalizations with closely related members of the 25x-NBOMe series.
Anecdotal reports suggest that this substance may be difficult to use safely due to its highly sensitive dose-response and unpredictable effects.

HARM REDUCTION ADVICE
