Ganesha, or 2,5-dimethoxy-3,4-dimethylamphetamine, is a lesser-known psychedelic drug. It is also a substituted amphetamine. It was first synthesized by Alexander Shulgin.[citation needed] In his book PiHKAL (Phenethylamines i Have Known And Loved), the dosage range is listed as 24–32 mg. The drug is usually taken orally, although other routes such as rectally may also be used.[citation needed] Ganesha is synthesized from 2,5-dimethoxy-3,4-dimethylbenzaldehyde. Ganesha is the amphetamine analogue of 2C-G. It is a particularly long lasting drug, with the duration listed in PiHKAL as being 18 – 24 hours, which might make it undesirable to some users. It is named after the Hindu deity, Ganesha. Very little is known about the dangers or toxicity of Ganesha. Effects of Ganesha include:

  • Strong closed-eye visuals
  • An increased appreciation of music
  • Powerful relaxation and tranquility
