    I've noted that 5-APB is more and more encountered at various suppliers and this forum doesn't have a drug info thread for this chemical, so please post information about 5-APB here.

    Can anyone add information about:
    names / synonyms
    side effects
    legal status
    have there been any reported incidents with this compound?
    since when has this research chemical been available?
    stability of the molecule / compound
    Experiences with 5-APB should be discussed here: 5-APB Experiences


    Names: 5-(2-aminopropyl)benzofuran or 1-benzofuran-5-ylpropan-2-amine
    CAS Number: 286834-80-8
    Formula: C11H13NO
    Mol. Mass: 175.23 g/mol
    First repors: report to EMCDDA at december 2010

    According to wikipedia: 5-APB is a drug claimed to act as an agonist of the 5-HT2C receptor, which has been sold as a designer drug since 2010. Anecdotal reports from users suggest it has stimulant and empathogenic effects, but less psychedelic action than related compounds such as 6-APB and 5-APDB.
    According to ecstasydata: Marquis and Mecke tests are purple.
    Possible forms: It comes in succinate and hydrochloride forms, with claims from vendors that hydrochloride should be around 30% stronger/more effective than succinate.

    Google Trends page, showing that the most interest towards compound come from uk.

    These are the doses for HCL. Quoting several people from other websites:
    6-9 hours

    EFFECTS (gathered from experience reports)
    Increased energy
    Strongly increased tactile sensations
    Increased appreciation of music
    Increased empathy
    Pleasant body high
    Desire to talk

    SIDE EFFECTS (gathered from experience reports)
    Sleep deprivation (less than with 6-APB)
    Overstimulation (high doses)
    Strong pupil dilation
    Increased heart rate

    Mixing both substances are widely reported and people claim that 5-APB gives a kick and more energy to the 6-APB effects, making it more acceptable for public use and clubs. Lot of vendors also sell premixed pills with proportions of 6 partsof 6-APB and 5 parts of 5-APB, yet there are several claims that mix where proportions are 1:1, or even with more of 5-APB is more pleasant and has less body load. It's commonly agreed that mix of the substances is better than each substance alone.

    More energy, more tactile sensations, less euphoria, less visuals. Not as lazy and chilly as 6-APB.

    Insufflation is reported as a working ROA, yet the doses were not specified.
