A View of the 2C Family
2C-C, 2C-D, 2C-E, 2C-I & 2C-P
Citation:   LaughingFatGuy. "A View of the 2C Family: An Experience with 2C-C, 2C-D, 2C-E, 2C-I & 2C-P (exp89480)". Feb 11, 2021.

All of the 2C's have very similar effects. It can be hard to discriminate them from each other, especially if one doesn't know the dosage taken. Such as, 1-3mg of 2C-E can feel like 1-15mg of 2C-D. The main difference between each one is the potency, of each one.

2C-D, 2C-C, and 2C-I take about 1-2 hours to peak. 2C-E takes a good 2 hours to peak, but no more. 2C-P's peak is at 3-4 hours after ingestion. The 2C-D and 2C-gain a 20mg dose of 2C-E may last 14 hours.

I guess it'll be easier, if I describe them individually. These were all acquired from a respectable RC dealer, but are of unknown purity and composition. All acquired from the same supplier. They all seemed to look about the same, a white very-fine powder. They all tasted different, but each horribly bitter in their own way. The user has an extensive knowledge and over a decade of experience with psychoactives.

1-3 mg feels like a minute amount of LSD, like a quarter of a tab. In this sense it could be used as a nootropic. The mind runs faster and thought is more concerned with 'higher' things. Maybe like a low-dose of psychedelic pot, or again a small amount of LSD. In higher doses (over 2-3mg), giddiness, euphoria, and the mind-fuck-confusion takes over, similar to larger doses of LSD. It's hard to think straight, forget what I am doing/saying, losing things. Studying would be difficult at this dose. With 5-25 mg it starts to feel more like the other 2C's and not just a threshold acid trip. The main characteristic of a high dose of 2C-D is the lack of visuals. Colors, shades, shadows, lights, shiny things, lines, patterns, all stick out more, but that's as much as I get. Even with 25mg, no 'wiggles' were noted, not even waving or 'breathing.'

Less, than 10mg feels almost no different from 15mg of 2C-D. There does seem to be a relaxation, noted with 2C-C. I will still get the urge to move around, dance, talk-my-head-off, clean, etc., but the first 1-4 hours are very relaxing kinda like achuma extract, especially with a large dose (10-25mg). I could lay down and close my eyes for the first couple of hours. After the peak and towards the end of the plateau, I will tend to get up and want to do something. 2C-C has the nicest comedown compared to all of them, even 2C-D.

It's just much more relaxing than all of the others. An INTENSE RELAXATION, where body-buzz feels great and I just want to curl up into a ball. The visuals are wonderful, both CEVs and OEV's, very similar to mescaline or acid, but more towards mescaline. Anything below 15-20mg, and the visuals aren't much more than 2C-D. A high dose of 2C-C, will produce wiggles and breathing, but we are talking like 20-25mg. The 2C-C is good for a relaxing Sunday or if I am tripping late at night and be able to sleep before sunrise. 2C-C can create beautiful visions, not just visuals, in doses over 15mg.

I gave a friend 15mg of 2C-D, and he liked it a lot. I gave him 15mg of 2C-D two days later with 3mg of 2C-I. He said that the 2C-I made a HUGE difference, visually and mentally. He didn't expect only 3mg to make that much of a difference. 2C-I is definitely my favorite. It is more stimulating than 2C-C, and in that sense could be compared to 2C-D. 2C-I is so much better than 2C-D or 2C-C, because of the potency and the visuals. 10mg of 2C-I would feel like a lot more than 25mg of 2C-C. And, I have the feeling that no matter how much 2C-D I take, I could never have the experience that 2C-I can give me. A high dose, 20mg or more, of 2C-I can be introspective, BUT all of the 2C's make me an extrovert and very sociable. When tripping alone with 20mg, 2C-I manifested voices and was deeply introspective. I found myself talking to myself or listening to the 'voices' in my head. It was the weirdest thing actually hearing other people's voices in my head. Not unlike the voices brought out through the use of DMT. 10-12mg is a great dose for me, and it's actually my favorite dose. It is just enough to get trails, slight wiggles and breathing, be quite stimulating but not TOO much, be awe-inspiring, and euphoric. I feel like something of a mystic. Above 12-15mg, the trip turns into something more introspective and very visual. I haven't done more than 20mg of 2C-I, at one time. Taking a shower is just breathtaking. The beauty of nature is awe inspiring.

Even a low dose (10mg) of 2C-E is visual. Any dose above 12mg has things moving like crazy. At 17-20mg, colors seem to change in shade and the actually color, as well. Like, instead of red becoming darker and lighter, red turns into blue or green, etc. Everything associated with 2C-D, 2C-C, and 2C-I can be found in 2C-E. Take a low dose of 2C-E, and it can feel like 2C-I or even 2C-D. After all, 2C-E is the most potent of the 3, described so far. I haven't taken any more than 20mg of 2C-E because of the length of time 8-14 hours, and because a large dose of 2C-E involves a lot of confusion and starts to become dissociative, like DXM. On high doses one can close the eyes and, kinda, slip away into a dream. 2C-E is said to be very introspective compared to the others, but I think this is true just because 2C-E is much more potent. If I take enough 2C-I or even 2C-D it can be quite introspective.

I can't say much about this. I've barely even dipped into it. I've tried 3mg, which was similar to 9-10mg of 2C-I. 2C-P took a whole 2 hours to feel anything. Has the same time line as mescaline, but lasts a bit longer. The 3mg, lasted 8 hours. No real wiggles, but definitely visual, like I wanted to see stuff move or expected to see it, but it never happened.
