(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.
