General Effects Notes
The effects of 6-APB are usually compared to MDMA.

Routes of Administration
6-APB is most often taken orally.

Addiction and Compulsive Use
6-APB is not known to be associated with compulsive use and physical dependence is extremely unlikely. Because its use is so uncommon, no definitive statements about its use can be made.

Erowid's effects information is a summary of data gathered from users, research, and other resources. This information is intended to describe the range of effects people report experiencing. Effects may vary dramatically from one person to another or one experience to another based on a variety of factors such as body chemistry, age, gender, physical health, dose, form of material, etc.
