"25x-NBOMe" type molecules - Available information on the diffusion of a class of NPS in France
Memo, OFDT, 25 p.
Within the vast category of new psychoactive substances, 25x-NBOMe or NBOMe represents a group of compounds in the phenethylamine family, which mainly has a hallucinogenic and psychedelic effect in particular.
These compounds, which are sometimes sold and used instead of LSD, have emerged on the French market over the past five years.
Based on the different activities carried out by the TREND-SINTES schemes and the I-TREND European project, this summary attempts to explain how 25x-NBOMe were able to attract obvious interest among certain users. It describes the way in which these substances have established a presence in France, according to a relatively symbolic diffusion pattern for new hallucinogenic substances. This analysis also focuses on the prospects for changes and the limits of their presence on French territory. Lastly, it presents and describes their inherent challenges and problems, particularly in relation to health.
