2C-P is an entheogenic phenethylamine first synthesized by Alexander Shulgin. The full name of the chemical is 2,5-dimethoxy-4-(n)-propylphenethylamine. In his book 'PIHKAL' (Phenethylamines I Have Known and Loved), Shulgin listed 2C-P's dosage between 6 and 10 mg, with 16 mg being labeled an "overdose." 2C-P is perhaps the most potent of all the 2Cs. The drug has a very slow onset, and peak effects do not occur for 3 to 5 hours. A 2C-P experience can last anywhere between 10 to 16 hours, or even longer with higher dosages.
Many have reported that the effects of 2C-P are similar to other phenethylamines, especially 2C-E, but are significantly longer lasting. Intense visionary experiences similar to those of LSD have been reported, and many reports indicate that the effects of this particular chemical may be overwhelming for those not well experienced with psychedelics. Another consistent feature with 2C-P is a steep dose/response curve. As little as 1 to 2 mg can be the difference between effects which are moderate and enjoyable, and those which are excessive and frightening. The need for an accurate milligram scale is of the utmost importance with 2C-P.
