2C-B is a synthetic drug which is most often in the form of yellow pills, though may be found as purple tablets or an off-white powder with a bitter flavor. The consumption of 2C-B leads to auditory and visual hallucinations, as well as a sensation of time alteration. 2C-B, as a stimulant and visually psychedelic drug, is often used in festive settings for its recreational appeal. At a very weak dose (2mg), it was advertised as an aphrodisiac, then banned in 1997. At or over 10 mg, it leads to hallucinogenic reactions (notably perceptions of colored halos) which arise in the half-hour following its consumption. Taking 2C-B may generate a sense of disorientation and a fear of dying.
