2C-C Research Chemical
2C-C Research Chemical is a substituted phenethylamine with psychedelic effects. Best known for producing fairly relaxed experiences that tend to be comfortable or at least manageable in terms of physical and mental activity.
It was first synthesized in the 1980s and publicized in the 1990s, but it’s never become a popular drug. The substance remains a research chemical that’s almost exclusively purchased online. 2C-C is substantially less popular than LSD, psilocin, and even 2C-B.
The general public has long been aware of traditional illicit drugs such as cocaine, marijuana, and methamphetamine. Designer drugs were created in the 1960s to avoid the provisions of existing drug laws by preparing analogs or derivatives of currently available drugs. Designer drugs including the 2C class discussed in this article are not new but have been increasing in popularity. Manufacturers of designer drugs purposely change the structure of these drugs to stay ahead of drug laws. Thus making it difficult for clinicians to stay informed. Structure manipulation to produce new compounds, advertisement of these compounds as “legal” highs, and ease of access of designer drugs from the internet, raves, night clubs, and sale in head shops have rejuvenated and promoted the current designer drug resurgence.
