Hi, my name is 4-bromo-2,5-dimethoxyphenethylamine; in short 2C-B. My street name is Nexus. In the past I have also been distributed as “Eve” and “Venus”. I was born in 1974. My father was Russian scientist Sasha Shulgin, who gave birth to me in his personal laboratory in his backyard. Commercially sold as a brownish white powder – usually in capsule form, I can either be ingested orally or insulated.
I BRING YOU IN TOUCH WITH YOURSELF. I AM THE EMPOWERMENT THAT LET’S YOU MEET YOUR INNER STRENGTH. AS A CATHARTIC THERAPEUTIC TOOL, I OFFER POWERFUL, OFTEN LIFE-CHANGING INSIGHTS ABOUT YOURSELF AND THE NATURE OF YOUR REALITY.
Not only can I make you feel at one with the universe, I can give you a fresh perspective on unappreciated personality traits, unhealthy thought patterns and destructive behaviours. I allow you to stay in a lucid frame of mind while I help you to reprogram your mind by making you see that the self is separate from your thoughts.
My fathers intention in my creation was to for me to be used as a tool for therapy. Nowadays many people use me to party or to have an out of this world experience – which does not bother me too much if they do not mix me with alcohol or weed. Except for possible purging and nausea, I do not cause a lot of harm – unless of course if you overdose me. I can be a very funny and giggly substance. I am able to transform your world into a bliss of colour and emotion. My effects lie somewhere in between the blend of the warm glow of MDMA and the consciousness expanding visuals you get on LSD.
But if you use me for what I was meant to be used, you will be astonished about how much I can reveal.
I am an extremely potent antagonist of whatever you are hiding from yourself. I reveal the source of resistance. In my ascent phase you usually enter a state of confusion which can be hard to endure physically in your body and can lead to nausea and vomiting. If you can let yourself be in that uneasy state without trying to fight it, I usually bring up memories and insights about the origin of this uncomfortable feeling. While this is often a very difficult and challenging process, I hope you will realize the worth of this gift. I will make sure you will feel held in my caress when you move through your pain. Accept and breathe.
I AM AN AMPLIFIER OF WHAT IS GOING ON IN YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS MIND AND I WILL HELP YOU TO RELEASE IT.
I will reunite you with those fragmented aspects of the self that were split off by the pain you experienced in the past. Some of those aspects of the self may seem to be of animalistic nature – uncontrollable, impulsive, irrational. In order for you to tame the wild beast within, you need to do nothing else than to see the fears and feel the pain that lie underneath this inner beast. A beast that is no-one else than your own protector. I will guide you to the source of your uncomfortable emotions and behaviours and help you to set them free Once you have let me take down your defenses, I will smoothly let you enter a state of stillness and clarity.
After a challenging journey, my gift is that I return yourself to you in your truest form, you get to be yourself again. I wake you up from a long sleep,returning you to openness and vulnerability. I help you to reach a higher level of consciousness that allows you to take responsibility for yourself, so that you can master yourself and your world.
I WILL EMPOWER YOU TO MAKE NECESSARY, BRAVE DECISIONS THAT YOU WOULD USUALLY BE TOO SCARED TO TAKE.
I promote empathy and understanding between people. I allow you to experience connection with other sentient beings, plants and animals. I allow you to become one with others, this may be a totem animal, a friend or a lover. Sexual feelings often are enhanced under my influence, you can decide if you want to use this offering to merge with another being into erotic pleasure or sense the sexual life force pulsing through your veins and connect with it as your creative power.
I am a powerful psychotropic substance, best used on my own. Respecting my role of a shamanic intermediary is key to having a positive experience.
My recommended dose for therapeutic purposes is 15mg. I will bring you focus, clearness, ease on the body, awareness of beauty and clarity. I allow you to feel deeply and bring you to orgasmic revelations. I help you to confront and let go of internal psychological defense mechanisms. At higher doses of 25mg I will take you down the rabbit whole and show you a lot more imagery – which can be an absolutely amazing adventure, but also take away from the clarity I give you at a lower dose. Experiencing a lucid dream, you may be walking on fluffy clouds enchanted by sensual, rich visuals. As a floating soul you may enter a whole new world of the chaotic cosmic order.
IN OUR JOURNEY TOGETHER I WILL GRANT YOU THE FREEDOM OF STAYING IN CONTROL OF THE DIRECTION OF OUR JOINED TRAVELS.
I teach strength – not by making you harder or boosting your level of self-control but by making you meet and feel and see and love every hidden aspect that is part of yourself. My gift to you is the empowerment and liberation of the self.
Thanks for getting to know me. Let’s Find Your True Self!
CHARACTERISTICS OF 2C-B
How do you take me?
Considering my conception as a synthetic drug used in therapy sessions, my effects are typically short-lived and moderate, with few known adverse effects or a lack of long-term usage symptoms.
I am typically sold as a white powder, usually pressed into tablets or gel caps. These forms are most often taken orally, but can be vaporized as well.
My father Shulgin’s book PiHKAL,wherein he discusses my usage, lists the standard dosage as being between 12 and 24mg. Large doses do not result in toxicity or lethal harm, but can cause severe short-term effects, especially horrifying visions andrapid heart rate.
I have a relatively slow onset time, with effects often taking upwards of an hour to manifest. My Divine High can be abnormally long, however, with effects lasting as long as twelve hours, though more commonly between four and ten hours.

What you need to know!
Use me safely with a entheogenic guide to guide you through a therapeutic process and please don’t waste my qualities to party.
Most unpleasant symptoms appear at doses above 30mg, so staying beneath this level will enhance your chances of getting through the experience in a more comfortable manner.
Many users report pleasant visual distortions and joyous moods at low doses, with these effects sometimes being enhanced by music.
It is important to note that, while I was sold commercially as an aphrodisiac, not all users report feeling an erotic effect.
