What is 6-APB?
6-APB – also known as 6-(2-Aminopropyl)benzofuran or “Benzofury” – is a novel empathogen (a chemical that produces feelings of connectedness and empathy) of the benzofuran class (similar to chemicals such as 5-MAPB and 5-APB).
Whether or not 6-APB is less neurotoxic than MDMA is still up for debate, as stated in the Sept 2020 study “Beyond ecstasy: Alternative entactogens to MDMA with potential applications in psychotherapy“:
To date, no research has been conducted to ascertain the neurotoxic potential of benzofurans. There are, however, some indications coming from user reports: 5-APB and 6-APB are generally claimed to produce less of a ‘come down’, a period following the acute effects of a drug, characterised by depressed thoughts, lack of energy and general malaise, than MDMA
We highly recommend reading this study if you’re interested in the pharmacology of Benzofurans. It is the most comprehensive analysis of this chemical class and their similarities/differences to MDMA to date and a very interesting read!
What are the effects of 6-APB?
The subjective effects of 6-APB are generally reported as very similar to MDMA and 5-MAPB. It is often seen as slightly more stimulating than 5-MAPB, while 5-MAPB is usually described to be more euphoric.
6-APB is significantly longer acting than MDMA. Most experiments tend to last between 7-10 hours; while MDMA lasts between 3-6 hours, often leading to compulsive redosing. Both 5-MAPB and 6-APB are commonly reported as having a less severe “comedown” than MDMA.
Some of the most commonly reported effects of 6-APB are:
- Stimulation & Sedation
