This talk will present data from research where the subjective effects of 2C-B were studied. Subjects answered a survey in which they were asked about desirable and undesirable physical and psychological effects on the short, middle, and long term after 2C-B use. They also completed psychometric rating scales (RHS and VESSPA) scoring subjective effects of 2C-B and data were compared with data obtained after the administration of MDMA, Salvia divinorum, ayahuasca, and d-amphetamine in previous studies of our group. Potential clinical uses of 2C-B will also be discussed.
José Carlos Bouso is conducting research to collect preliminary data on the safety and efficacy of varying doses of MDMA administered in a psychotherapeutic setting to women with chronic post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a result of a sexual assault. He also has been conducting neuropsychological research into the long-term effects of drugs such as cocaine and cannabis. He has done transcultural research, extensively studying the long-term effects of ayahuasca use in different cultures and ecosystems, both in Spanish and in Brazilian communities. José Carlos Bouso is co-author of several scientific papers and book chapters. He currently combines his activity as a clinical researcher at the IMIM (Institut Hospital del Mar d’Investigacions Mèdiques) with his work as Scientific Projects Manager at the International Center for Ethnobotanical Education, Research, and Service (ICEERS; iceers.org).
