Trusted Research Chemical Vendors * USA

Last updated January 20, 2020

Browse through the continents:

This list was compiled to save you from scammers, and definitely not to endorse you trying synthetic drugs!

We cannot place test orders with all the shops all the time, unfortunately, but we do our best to keep the list up to date and reliable.

Sharing your experiences and updates would be of great help!
We will happily publish your reviews and photos!


Info: The scientific design behind the list briefly explained.

If you should experience trouble with any of the shops mentioned, please do let us know, thank you!

USA – Verified Vendors

While even in the Netherlands, Research Chemicals are considered a grey-area-market and even vendors who registered companies (or actually mostly fronts) for their web shops try to stay anonymous because they are afraid of angry mothers whose kids they have poisoned with synthetic designer drugs, in the US, to my best knowledge, only criminals sell Research Chemicals.

Some run web shops, but more often they would meet in forums or use Social Media like Wickr and Discord where they would do Direct Deals, meaning they pay no taxes, just like street dealers around the corner.

In January 2020, an RC Benzodiazepine vendor dealing with Clonazolam, Diclazepam, Flubromazolam & Etizolam was convicted for Online Sale & Distribution of Unapproved Drugs. His illicit money was seized, he will have to pay a fine of up 250,00 USD and he could face up to 5 years in prison.

With Chinese and Russian money conquering the States, also the line between Schedule I drugs and Research Chemicals, between Clearnet and Darknet, has become surprisingly thin. Chinese and Russian vendors would smuggle kilos of Schedule I substances to the USA and so are becoming a threat for the Research Chemical scene…

USA: Shops which are said to be okay

These shops would sometimes receive good reviews but since two thirds of shop reviews are fake and we do not know anyone personally having ordered with these, we decided to list them but cannot vouch for any of them.

ALBION ALKIMIYA is correct, was verified by user C.
(some forum has also listed which I did not check, tbh)

Since September 1, 2020 this Albion vendor does not accept orders from new customers anymore. If you had not ordered with them since March, they won’t serve you neither, even if you used to order with them before.

As long as the shop remains public (website, paste), it will stay listed here. I think the odds of them changing this policy again ain’t that litte.

Currently stocks Benzodiazepines, Dissociatives, Uppers, Phenidates and O-DSMT, sometimes also carries Psychedelics.

Uses a remarkably unfriendly tone on his Pastebin

Will communicate with you only if you send self-destructing messages.
Please mind that he often changes his email address

In case you can’t figure out how to place an order with them, like I wouldn’t have without help of our friend S., maybe join them on Discord and open a support ticket:
What looks like an online weed dealer, is actually selling CBD, a non-psychoactive version of Marihuana that us said to increase your mood and to help you relax.

CBD-growers use a loophole in legislation: Since Marijuana is also used in the industry, there is a passage in legislation that allows something like a rope or a pullover made out of weed to contain an maximum of 0.3% Δ9THC.

THC is the psychoactive element in Marijuana, that may lead to panic attacks, or drug induced psychoses. 0.3% of THC shouldn’t do any harm, although it could make you addicted as well.

While people behind the times always tried to divide people, this vendor has a couple of advantages over having to deal with certain US vendors:

Won’t scam you
No underweight samples
Ships either same day or no later than 48 hours after payment.

– – –

Please mind the time difference:

San Francisco = UTC – 8 hours, New York = UTC – 5 hours,
Amsterdam = UTC + 1 hour, Hong Kong = UTC + 8 hours.

An example:
When it is 8:00 in San Francisco, it already is 17:00 in Europe and already midnight in China.

Only few shops like Smokeys Chem Site offer 24/7 support via live chat. Shops like TRRCC or RareChems as well as most Asian vendors in the list work from 8 to 5 local time. So don’t be disappointed if they cannot answer you immediately because they go to bed at nights.

– – –
Unless you ordered a ton of a product, delivery success rate will be around 90%
– – –

Please mind: In case a letter should not arrive, and you do neither receive seizure information, then customs decided to not press charges against you. State attorneys have more important tasks to deal with than caring about a small amount of an unscheduled substance.
– – –
Before you order, always check back with the DEA’s Orange Book of Controlled Substances and ideally double-check with the DEA’s list of recently added schedules. Scheduled / controlled means banned / illegal.

Remember: Just because a product is legal in, e.g. Hong Kong or in the Netherlands it could still be a controlled substance in the US!

Also: The state you live in could have substances scheduled that are not banned nationwide and thus illegal in your area but not listed by the DEA. Check your local legislation and last, not least: Keep in mind that the US have an analogue act meaning there are more substances illegal than the DEA would list.

USA: Shops for Adventurers

These shops either have difficulties supplying constant quality (might sell watered down, bunk or stale substances). Some would stop communication once you have sent them money. And last, not least, some of them are REAL OPIATE CRISIS “PATRIOTS“…

Seems to constantly let his customers down and blaming it to USPS. Would ship or refund orders (only after you complained in forums!) but the next order again will seem stuck again and never move forwards.

Was caught posting lies about other vendors.

Difficult to predict.

Could not find a current paste, also, the email addresses are new to me, be cautious, better #AVOID.

Could be okay shops, could be scammers or out of business. We don’t know. If you do, please let us know, thank you!

If you decided to order with vendors that are not listed HERE, please DO check them against with our little list of known scammers AND always use BOTH AND, especially with Asian vendors!

An example:

If they advertise any chemicals that are banned in China or were obviously illegal to order, like Crystal Meth or prescription meds, stay away from them! China would arrest and torture Meth dealers!

Also, please understand that some scammers post up to a hundred positive reviews for themselves – each and every day! Scamming has become a multi-million-dollars business, these ill-minded guys would sometimes act professional, may have studied marketing or might be trained sales agents who understand the psychology involved in how to make you buy with them.
Also, a single scam might already mean a a fortune for criminals living in poor countries. So they won’t stop flooding the web with their fake reviews, it pays off for them, they do not feel sorry, they imagine the Western World to swim in money.

USA: Shops to better avoid

These shops are known for offering poor quality or or for selling strong drugs in candy form, or for selling mislabeled substances, or for being obviously sketchy.

Substance Warning with details on the toxicity of these compounds

Customers complaining about receiving trash substances since November, 2020
Details on that trash substances

Proximo got scammed recently by his supplier. He shared the wholesaler with LegitRC. While LegitRC has all his products tested by an independent lab before offering them for sale, and so found out that these substances were trash, needed to change the supplier and had a loss of income for about a week, Proximo does not test his substances at all and is selling these bunk substances to you.

His loyal customers confirm that he sold them bunk:

– – –
Due to his dishonest communication, for selling highly toxic opioids, for selling bunk substances, and because he was caught posting lies about other vendors, this irresponsible douchebag should definitely be avoided.

With guys that do not care a little about their customers’ health, you never know what product you will receive. Will it be mislabeled? Is it toxic waste? Will it kill me? There is too much risk involved with ordering from such an irresponsible douchebag.
Claims to be RC Leon’s domestic US vendor. RC Leon is an allegedly Chinese vendor who smuggles schedule I substances to a warehouse in California and sells these in bulk amounts to street dealers.

Not all of his substances might be scheduled yet, but e.g. Eutylone, one of the products he stocks, is according to the DEA “a positional isomer of pentylone, [and thus] eutylone is controlled in schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act.”

Better stick with vendors who play safe. You definitely do not want to have a schedule I drug order confiscated by Law Enforcement.

A country run by a stable genius, everyone seemingly on Benzodiazepines, Fent or Meth, and of course, for some criminals, someday their absurdly high profit is not enough anymore, and they start stealing from you…

#AVOID! This shops is notoriously known for (selective) scamming. They would send out like 50% of orders and scam the rest of their customers. It’s a pain in the ass to deal with them.

Checkout their Trustpilot reviews, these clearly show that their business ethics are more than questionable.

There are RC related forums where moderators would constantly defend scammers, especially on the Darknet. Without wanting to out the people involved, just a hint: These guys make more money out of moderating forums than with their actual jobs.

Lame order processing, many mistakes, not reliable at all.

A reliable source told me that he used to send out out O-DSMT (an opioid) instead of 3-HO-PCP (a dissociative) in the past. When trying to verify this information, I stumbled across fresh accusations of selective scamming. Again! Already last year, people were complaining about him scamming, that time he said the issues would have been caused because of a change in ownership. For the recent scamming events, the shop seem to have run out of excuses…

He told me he would stop dealing with drugs, but I just came home from Google and and who do I see advertising on the clearnet again? Mr Shittypants RC1 ! So he is back on the list again.

Be careful: Mr Shittypants RC1 says he would not accept new customers and instead just steal your money if you placed an order, which is a poor performance even for a fucked up criminal who does neither work nor pay taxes.

So if you have already successfully ordered with Mr Shittypants RC1, then he might accept your order. But remember: Mr Shittypants RC1 is dumb as a dog: If he can’t find you in his database, which is a great idea to keep for a criminal to endanger his customers, he would just steal your money. See for yourself what that weasel announed: RC1 vendor paste from June 2020

Email him before ordering. and add question in the subject line just like that:

      1. I already said sorry a couple of times for that incident.

        The shop was listed “UNKNOWN” and had 2 warnings in its shop description, coloured in red: One on top, one on bottom of its shop description, stating we “do not yet know if legit or not”..

        Already a few days later, the community warned against that shop and so it was put to the scammers’ section. I am sorry to hear about your loss, but I thought it was clear that this shop was a 50:50 chance at best. This shop had received positive reviews not long ago, I was as surprised as you were.

        EU shops have a delivery success closer to 100% than to 70% with overseas orders, your vendors are often ordering with the same shops that are listed on this site. The problem with the US is that vending with research chemicals will be punished with prison, whereas in the EU, you would buy from registered companies. So, as long as everybody in the US stays anonymous and forum postings can be easily be faked, scammers will become more and more.

        The next three additions will be safe but they still need time to prepare.

        Sorry, again.


  1. Chemical labus. Com scammers will take your money through cash app then give you a fake tracking number through a fake company then tell you that your order is on hold and you need to pay more to get it through customs and then tell you that it’ll be there within 12 hours and then tell you that the FBI has your order and you have to pay more or you’re going to jail.

  2. Hello @ALL,

    I recently added two vendors to the “UNKNOWN” section and each of them was added 2 warnings in their shop description saying “TREAT WITH CAUTION: No idea yet if legit!”

    I posted these shops hoping for the RC SCENE COMMUNITY to share their experiences with them.
    And indeed, some visitors warned me against one of them being a scammer.

    Both have been deleted for now.

    I will handle this differently in the future, I am sorry if anyone should have ordered with them and they should turn out to be scammers.

      1. I was thinking about placing a test order with him as well… Did a little digging first, found a dude on discord who seems to have been scammed. Emailed sylis and straight up asked him about it, and why I couldn’t really find much about him peroid… He didn’t say much, just that he vended on TOR… Said no samples. Was still about to email him to ask to come up with a fair price, more like just shipping for like 1 tab, 1/4g 2dfk and maybe 1/4g of whatever PC(x) he says he has, to clear his name… I just want another solid US vendor so bad, lol. Was basically about to take one for the team for all you folks. But looks like you beat me to it…. Don’t really have a good feeling about it, but I guess we’ll see.


        1. Let’s hope for the best. It was dumb of me to add them just like that. I should have known that the list is considered to be reliable and that the warnings would be ignored. Americans ask me all the time about obvious scam shops, like a website with a fake imprint in the US offering Crystal could ever be legit. One of the shops is filed in the notes together with two positive reviews, anonymous reviews without photos, as always, but maybe we are lucky. I would be super ashamed if they won’t ship. This will never happen again. Vendors will only be added only after they have proven to be legit and only after a while being moved to “shops to be said okay”.


          1. I was supposed to be the tester/reviewer for them, I waited a few days to see if he’d contact me to no avail. I messaged him when he’d like to work it out and after forwarding the email directed for us explaining, he stopped emailing me back

  3. Found multiple new scams on trust pilot earlier, I’ll list them here even though they’re obviously scams

    [ .. ]

    Don’t know if they’re noteworthy to post [ .. ]

    [ edited, K. ]


    1. Thank you for your post. I edited the scam shop addresses out of your post and have added all of them to the Known Scammers page:

      If you find a scam shop, please leave a review at Trustpilot, or ScamRadar.
      It does not matter if you got scammed by them or just happened to stumble upon an obvious scam site, visiting a website is the same as entering a store. You do not need to buy (or in this case, rather: lose) anything in order to share a review and warn others against those scammers.

      Some people would not see obvious signs like a fake imprint in the USA together with offering dangerous and illicit drugs like crystal meth or prescription drugs like Morphine (think about it, no criminal would advertise his hideout).

      Another thing are the pictures: Do they look professionally and are they all alike or do they rather look like randomly collected/stolen images from other web shops? Maybe you even recognize some pictures from other web shops. Since scammers do not have any products, they need to steal images from other sites.

      Then, the email address: If a shop does not offer an email contact like info(at) but instead uses a GMAIL address, then you can be sure this is not a real company but are (probably Asian) scammers.

      Finally, if a substance that is not intended for human consumption is being advertised as “recreational” something you can be sure that this is not a serious business.


  4. I really appreciate what you’re doing & have shared your site with a LOT of friends.
    There has been a culture of information hoarding leading to dangerous behavior & price gouging for as long as I can remember.
    I know nothing is perfect, but I appreciate your vendor reviews section (I wish I would have seen it before putting in an order with purple ghost last month) & that it’s updated so frequently.
    I really like the article about the methyl ap shit & the dangers. .
    I have no complaints with what you’re doing.
    The more we know as individuals, the stronger we are as a community.
    Thank you for doing what you do.

  5. How come Paracelsus was moved out of shops said to be ok? I’ve placed multiple orders with him since the end of October and the quality of his benzos have been just fine. Were the quality issues being complained of about the 2fdck or something? Because he has always responded to me the same day and sent the order out the next day.


      1. What’s the word on the ODSMT? I have some from a recent batch and it seems ok, maybe a tad weaker than usual but nothing too crazy. Interested to hear what others are reporting.


    1. Mr Paracelsus meanwhile replied to me and said all his substances would be tested by a company that I won’t mention but that I would not have expected to have chemists in their team. However, I think the testing is done only when importing the products. He says he would not cut or mix his substances, so every batch would have to be pure like it came straight out of the lab.

      Can anyone confirm that his chemicals are above average? If he does not touch them and the lab he sources from is good, his products would have to be outstanding.

      I am still wondering why people would send me emails with complaints – of which all of them look authentic to me – when he would sell substances uncut. I am a bit undecided at the moment.

      He also said that vending research chemicals would be legal and that even selling them for human consumption would be allowed. I have yet to verify this.

      Since his email opened in a remarkably unfriendly tone, I won’t edit the list today but think about it and might put him back to his old place on Tuesday.


  6. I’ve never had an order from kino be scammed. He’s always came true to my order. I just received my
    Pack I’m the mail. So I dunno what really happened between you two but he’s always came through.

  7. On Sunday I just put in an order with Sellkies Labs/Seeking Sanctuary and followed up about the shipping No response. Nothing. I’m pretty concerned about the lack of communication and then I noticed he’s connected with JBerg, who you have blacklisted. WTF is going on. I have a feeling I’ve been scammed.If my gut is wrong, I’ll remove this. Otherwise, I will confirm that I was had.
