What can NBOMe feel like?

NBOMe drugs can make you feel like you have taken LSD, but the effects take longer to kick in. You might experience hallucinations, distortions of reality, euphoria, strong empathy or love, panic or nausea. The effects of NBOMe drugs can last 4–10 hours depending on your body. Overdose is common with these drugs as it can be very hard to get the dose right.

Remember, a low dose for one person can be a high dose for another as people’s bodies process drugs differently.
