#TestIt Alert: ‘Hofmann Bicycle Day’ blotter sourced in Toronto, Canada tests as 25C-NBOHKristin Karas
By: DanceSafe Staff
‘Hofmann Bicycle Day’ blotter that was sold as LSD in Toronto, Canada tested as 25C-NBOH, a derivative of the phenethylamine psychedelic 2C-C, which started appearing on the market as a ‘designer drug’ in 2011. Very little is known about the pharmacological properties and toxicity of 25C-NBOH. It is closely related to members of the 25x-NBOMe series such as 25I-NBOMe, which have been associated with many hospitalizations and deaths.
Sender’s note states that the sample had “[s]imilar psychoactive effects to LSD but chemical taste and negative Ehrlich reagent result suggests it is something else. Other reagent results: Marquis = beige, Mandelin = brown; Mecke = light olive.” The reagent results from ecstasydata.org show an orange reaction for Marquis, yellow reaction for Mecke, and no reaction (no color change) for Mandelin.
We urge our community to keep in mind that drug markets are expansive and that this blotter may appear in locations other than the submission’s origins.
