Overview:

5-MAPB is also known as 1-(benzofuran-5-yl)-N-methylpropan-2-amine. It is an entactogen that is is structurally related to 5-APB and MDMA. 5-MAPB is a very new research chemical, so there’s not much information available about its effects in humans. According to anecdotal reports on Erowid (2014), the subjective effects are quite similar to MDMA. Nonetheless, other anecdotal reports on UKChemicalResearch (2013) suggest that 5-MAPB may have worse effects (like low mood) during the week after the experience than MDMA.

Side Effects and Adverse Reactions:

There is currently very limited empirical data available on the side effects, adverse reactions, long term damage, and/or addiction potential of 5-MAPB. Remember, research chemicals are experimental chemicals that are not approved for human consumption. This is because not enough data exists currently about their effects in humans. Although some people are willing to ingest the research chemical 5-MAPB, it is unreasonable to assume that it is in any way safe to use recreationally.
