DOC

psychedelic
DOC (4-chloro-2,5-dimethoxyamphetamine) is a psychedelic amphetamine first described by chemist Alexander Shulgin as an "archetypal psychedelic" in his book PiHKAL: A Chemical Love Story. Oral doses as small as 1 mg are active: common effects include visual hallucinations, euphoria, and changes in perception, side effects like nausea and increased heart rate. Reports exist of DOC on blotter paper being sold as LSD, but an experienced user would be able to tell the difference as DOC can take up to 3 hours after ingestion to manifest itself and at higher doses the effects can easily last 18-24 hours or more.

[top]Introduction to DOC


DOC (2,5-dimethoxy-4-chloroamphetamine) is a psychedelic, substituted phenethylamine first synthesized and bioassayed by Alexander Shulgin. It is related to other phenethylamines, specifically 2C-C (DOC is the alpha-methyl analogue of 2C-C) and the other members of the DOx family (e.g. DOB or DOI). Doses as small as 1 mg are active, and common effects include visual hallucinations, euphoria, and changes in perception, although some report undesirable side effects like nausea or cardiovascular issues; Shulgin called it an "archetypal psychedelic" because it has shares effects characteristic of classic psychedelics like LSD and mescaline. Reports exist of DOC on blotter paper being sold as LSD, but an experienced user would be able to tell the difference as DOC can take up to 3 hours after ingestion to manifest itself and at higher doses the effects can easily last 18-24 hours or more. For this reason, it is not advisable to use DOC without prior psychedelic experience.



[top]Using DOC

[top]Ways of administration

It can be taken orally as powder, solution, drops (usually in ethanol) or on blotter.

Approximate Oral Doses:

Threshold: 0.5mg - 1mg
Light: 1.0mg - 1.5mg
Medium: 2mg - 3mg
Strong: 4mg - 5mg
Heavy: 5mg+

DOC can also be insufflated or administered rectally ("plugged"), with a typical active dose for these routes being lower than the oral dose. DOC can also be administered by intramuscular or intravenous injection, although a safe dosage for these routes of administration are poorly characterized.
