The N-Bomb Has Arrived – New Synthetic Drug Sweeping the Nation

We are having trouble keeping up with all the new drugs that come out. It seems synthetic drugs are the new craze.

The latest drug is street named N-Bomb. This one looks a little more serious then recent synthetic drugs to surface. We have spent the last two days researching this new deadly drug and we have put together everything you need to know about it.

The technical name for N-Bomb is phenethylamine. N-Bomb is extracted from mescaline, which is a natural substance in the peyote cactus. As of right now there is no way for the law to make it illegal because it is a hybrid of two banned substances. There are always loopholes in the law.

N-Bomb is ingested much like LSD. It can be taken as a paper tab, a liquid tab or even as a powder. The most common practice is a paper tab that is put under or on the tongue while the chemicals enter the blood stream.

N-Bomb is also knows as “smiles” and “25I”. The most common street name is N-Bomb which is derived from the chemical name of the drug.

The drug has been reported to have similar effects as bath salts.  As of yet there have not been any reports of violent crimes from people who were high on N-Bomb, however, the dangers of the new drug are quickly being discovered.

The drug is reported to have many common effects as other synthetic drugs. Mostly confusion, heightened awareness and paranoia. Speech is impaired as well as ability to communicate effectively. However there are reports coming in of seizures and death.

Death’s reported in North Dakota, Virginia, Louisiana and most recently in Arizona. Obviously there is much to be learned about the drug. It has been assumed that the long term effects could be of the liver, and with all psychedelics, mental disorders can surface. Right now we just don’t know enough about the drug to make any judgements.

In response to many of the deaths and hospitalizations, many states have already considered the designer drug a “Schedule 1 Controlled Substance.” This means that they have no currently accepted medical use, and a high potential for abuse.

just another way to kill our children. when does it stop?

Completely inaccurate article. You say it's extracted from Mescaline. Actually, 25i-NBOMe (which is it's chemical name), is derived from 2C-I. It is a wonderful substance that has only led to deaths through idiotic use. Saying that, I am not recommending anyone take it as it is a fairly new drug, only first synthesized in 2010 and as of yet, not a great deal is known about the long term effects. It can induce vasoconstriction and in higher doses, can lead to gangrene. So be aware of that if you do decide to use this substance.

Why won't somebody think of the children?

This article is SO inaccurate. 25I was scheduled by the DEA in November of last year as a Schedule I.... Here's the bulletin from the DEA. Get your facts straight....

This is the most inaccurate article I have ever read. more like mass propaganda bullshit. Like bath salts? seriously?

Dear parents, This article will kill your teen. Disclaimer: I DO NOT support the use of "N-bomb" Here are the FACTS: 1. This substance's chemical name is 2-(4-iodo-2,5-dimethoxyphenyl)-N-[(2-methoxyphenyl)methyl]ethanamine also known as 25i-NBOMe. (The author jeopardized your childs life by saying it is called phenethylamine as impressional teens reading this could buy phenethylamine from Amazon thinking it will give them a high and will end up dying or getting liver damage that is the price of misinformation and your lack of care as parents to protect your children by doing the research yourself!!) 2. 25i-NBOMe possibly causes brain damage...(don't stop reading there you irresponsible parents!)...via anecdotal evidence supported by the online drug safety and information community of 3. Some people experience seizures through unknown effects the substance has on electrolytes. (search for the information available to you on the internet parents it is YOUR JOB to protect your teens!) 4. 25i-NBOMe is one of only 1000s of synthetic chemicals on the market now that have effects vaguely similar to the concepts of stimulant, depressant, psychedelic, dissociative etc... these are new chemicals that can either be many times safer or many times more dangerous than currently controlled drugs. now protect your children and read first hand reports from so you can notice the signs of drug abuse.

ok, in the first paragraph it says this is all the info you will need then goes on to say, we do not know enough about the drug to make a judgement call.and to you morons that keep saying, what about the kids? really? did you think about the kids when you let the biggest drug lord on the planet shove pills down their throats because they like to day dream? or are just to much for you to handle? it is called being a parent. doing what is right for your kids, not what is easy. and always remember. we do not inherit the world from our ancestors. we simply borrow it from our children.

I'm not sure there is a single factual thing in this article. Martin is correct about the sourcing of it as well as the name. The article is also incorrect in that it is legal. It was placed on the schedule as a Schedule 1 drug in 2013. As to the people going on about the children. How about educating your children about such topics as drugs. Don't lie to them about them. Tell them the good and the bad. Give them the facts. Quit trying to get others to take responsibility for your children and take it yourself.
