2C-C is a psychedelic drug of the 2C family. It was first synthesized by Alexander Shulgin, sometimes used as an entheogen. The full name of the chemical is 4-chloro-2,5-dimethoxyphenethylamine. In his book "PiHKAL (Phenethylamines i Have Known And Loved)", Shulgin lists the dosage range as 20 to 40 mg. 2C-C is usually taken orally, but may also be insufflated [CitePiHKAL] . 2C-C is unscheduled and uncontrolled in the United States, but possession and sales of 2C-C could potentially be prosecuted under the Federal Analog Act because of 2C-C's close structural similarity to 2C-B.

Not much information is known about the toxicity of 2C-C. Many users report that 2C-C is gentler and more sedating than other closely related psychedelic phenethylamines.Fact|date=August 2008


* The visual effects of 2C-C are similar to those of LSD or psilocybin mushrooms, though much less intense. Unique among the psychedelics, 2C-C is intensely relaxing, almost sedating. Nasal insufflation (painful) or rectal administration bypasses first pass metabolism, requiring about half the dose normally used orally; the effects occur within 2-30 minutes via these routes and tend to last about an hour less. There are very few negative side effects attributed to 2C-C and nearly no hangover period.
* The effects can take up to two hours to manifest.
* Over the approximate dose range 20-40 mg, effects last respectively, approximately, 4 to 8 hours. Increased dosages increase the duration of the trip [CitePiHKAL] .
