2C-D is a short acting psychedelic drug of the 2C-X family. Effects are often described as being more easily managed than other psychedelics; it is often compared to a mixture of a LSD and MDMA, although not as visual as 2C-B 2C-D is also known for the strong body component of its effects which are alternately described as pleasurable energy or a 'sense of being in the body', and by others as an unpleasant 'buzzing' or body-load, which is mostly occurring during onset.

History

It was first synthesized in 1970 by a team from the Texas Research Institute of Mental Sciences, and its activity was subsequently investigated in humans by Alexander Shulgin.
