UNDERSTANDING NBOME

At the end of last year Dovetail produced a short video presentation about NBOMe-type hallucinogens in response to a number of related hospitalisations. The Gold Coast saw a number of people hospitalised, and one death, following the use of 25C-NBOMe and unfortunately we have seen more events such as these occur in the new year. Despite the confusion in the media, NBOMe-type hallucinogens are not "synthetic LSD" and in fact, are not related to LSD in any way. Instead, the NBOMe-type hallucinogens are analogs of the 2C-type hallucinogens, including 2CB and 2CI - more closely related to mescaline than LSD. This video presentation about the NBOMe hallucinogens includes the history of the substances, the health risks and effects, as well as an overview of some of the seizures of NBOMe. This potent hallucinogen can cause significant harm, and there are some important harm reduction messages for workers.
