Side Effects and Adverse Reactions:
bk-2C-B is a very new substance, and little is known about its side effects, adverse reactions, long term damage, and/or addiction potential.
Anecdotal reports from recreational users list various negative effects. These include:
- Nausea (Bluelight, 2013)
- Feelings of tenseness or edginess (Bluelight, 2013)
- Headache (Bluelight, 2013)
- Minor chest pain (UKChemicalResearch, 2013)
- Feelings of pins and needles in extremities (UKChemicalResearch, 2013)
- Muscle tension (Bluelight, 2013)
Remember, research chemicals are experimental chemicals that may not be safe for human consumption. This is because not enough data exists currently about their effects in humans. Although some people are willing to ingest research chemicals, it is unreasonable to assume that they are in any way safe to use recreationally.
