Domestic Research Chemical Vendors * USA [Archived]

Last updated November 21, 2021

This page has not received updates in more than a year. Please visit: for the latest updates!

BrXowse through the continents:

This list was compiled to save you from scammers and definitely not to endorse you trying synthetic drugs! Whatever you do, please make sure to be familiar with your local legislation first! A good start is the Orange Book issued by the DEA describing Federal Law means nationwide schedules.

Scheduled is another word for controlled, banned or illegal.

Schedule I drugs are the ones considered most problematic. There are problematic substances that have not been scheduled yet. Seemingly legal DOES NOT mean maybe safe!!! It takes a while to have newly emerged substances banned.

PLEASE NOTE: The DEA consideres substances not explicitly mentioned in their Orange Book “under certain circumstances” also illegal. They don’t tell you where to draw the line, but if, e.g., Etizolam is a Schedule IV, then D-Etizolam is definitely considered a controlled substance illegal to possess unless you have written permission by the DEA. That is because legislation does not simply ban single substances anymore but substances and their salts / isomers / analogs.

Please note: States, Counties and Cities (!) can also have scheduled (or allowed) Psychoactive Substances. State Law usually trumps Federal Law. An example: The DEA considers Cannabis/Marihuana a health-threatening villain and thus illegal. So do the United Nations (WHO), who know that Cannabis/Marihuana is an addictive drug with a serious Risk of Abuse. It is nonetheless legal in some US States, like, e.g., in California, Nevada, Arizona and Utah, and that even for Recreational substance abuse. That is because the States need the taxpayers’ money Taxes badly. Counties and Cities would sometimes pass legislation stricter than their State by scheduling additional substances but not overrule Federal or State Law.

It’s a portrait of a subculture.

This makes us unique.

The idea is to produce one shop portrait/review/whatever with every vendor mentioned here and, hopefully, a story to tell and produce multimedia content as never seen before in the scene, quality photos, or even videos.

* * *

This list of vendors does not rely on fake reviews as seen on Forums, Reddit, Trustpilot, etc.

This list does not mention random vendors or sponsors.

(Well, actually, a few interesting vendors are being added ongoing.)

This list was compiled by a handful of friends.
You cannot buy being mentioned here.
You can always say hello, of course.

* * *

We cannot place test orders with all the shops all the time, unfortunately.
Sharing your experiences and providing updates means a lot to us.

Your photos and reviews are more than welcome!


Whatever you do please make sure to be familiar with the harm that drugs cause.

The scene is defined by people with severe mental health issues.

René, Sellkies, that dude dealing with autism losing thousands of dollars to scammers every year and impossible to talk to because his emails do not make any sense, are just three of us.

Besides Auti, Sellki, and René, this is NOT a hen or egg problem! Recreational drugs definitely cause harm that cannot be undone. There is no undo button for your brains. If you are prone to psychoses, and experience drug-induced psychoses – good night & good luck.

If you struggle with depression, anxiety, problems falling asleep, etc., please FUCKING SEEK A PROFESSIONAL! Talk to your doctor before it gets worse!

Don’t even think of doing stuff like Benzodiazepines on a daily basis. Stop them after 14 days the latest.

Don’t try Dissoziatives, they are poisoning your brain.

NPS are considered trash.

The content below is about recreational drugs and greedy peeps wanting to get richer and richer.

Serious drug testing services warn you if your, e.g., MDMA pill contained unknown/probably toxic as hell trash substances aka NPS/Research chemicals. We do not know what they sell us. I can tell you for sure that many do not care at all. Many do not even know.

The profit margin is A LOT higher than with common drugs. For many, that’s the only reason they offer you trash substances.

The average NPS had never been allowed to be tested on living creatures. And you still think of ordering?

Maybe talk to a doctor. Thank you!

Please note:
While the [ Trusted Shop Reviews ] usually tell the history of a vendor of which some seem to have been around forever and show photos of products usually from at least two separate orders, they are still snapshots of a short period in time.

Vendors and their products are unpredictable
Quality, service, communication, and reliability change all the time. All vendors have their ups and downs. NPS / Research Chemicals always bear an immense risk to your health and have caused thousands of tragedies and even fatalities in recent years.

What A Scene…

While even in the Netherlands, Research Chemicals are considered a grey-area-market and even vendors who registered companies (or actually 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.

Details on this case: The website was selling RC Benzo powders, solutions and later also pellets. They did not claim the RC Benzos to be “real” meds, they sold them under their vanity names (Flubromazolam, Etizolam, Diclazepam, etc.) and also stated that their products must not be ingested (not for human consumption). Please see yourself:

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…

These two shops, however, seem just fine. Please keep in mind that their products might not necessary be legal nationwide. Always check back with your local legislation.

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.

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.

YouTube | Update 01/2021:
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:


+ + +

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.

+ + +


USPS announced to destroy all mail coming from overseas that does not declare its content. While this is hard to imagine, it is reality, though. If a shop fails making a letter arrive, please do not order over and over again.

The vendors mentioned on RC SCENE are known to be reliable shippers. Especially mail from the Netherlands is likely to be seized by customs though.

In case a letter should not arrive, and you do neither receive seizure information, then customs decided to not press charges against you.

Or you got scammed, who knows?

+ + +

The shop lists here are not exhaustive.

There seem to be hundreds of shops shipping from overseas, and even more email vendors claiming to offer hard drugs in forums. Going for hard drugs makes you the perfect scam victim. How likely are you to report having gotten scammed when trying to import a ton of Fent? Yes, it’s tricky.

Illegal => Stay away.

+ + +

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!

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. Please 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.

+ + +

European and Asian Research Chemical Shops are real companies that pay taxes, no criminal tax evaders!

These are young enthusiasts, they might need some time to find the right balance, maybe expect short delays in order processing from time to time.

Since they can’t afford paying off the big forums, there are not too many places that would mention them.

Could not find a current paste, also, the email addresses are new to me, be cautious, better #AVOID and do not fall for impersonators/scammers.

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.

Legit RC had made a promise: To never ever scam anybody.

Nobody knows who that dude was. One day, he suddenly disappeared.

Some say he would have exit scammed. Some say he is that René you know from the RC SCENE mailbox. Who else if not René could have known so many criminals that RC SCENE had to warn against contacting him because he seemed to have been friends with scammers and DN people and worse. You never mix NPS with hard drugs. You are here or hiding in the shadows. How many people complained about having gotten scammed and could prove they even had ordered? Zero.

Legit was no Einstein but a damn good businessman.

He never ever scammed anybody. Not bad for someone who suddenly disappears and has dozens of orders yet to process? Yeah, Legit was no Einstein but a damn good businessman.

Everybody who tells you different shall provide proof or be silent forever.

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:

In case Mr Shittypants RC1 should indeed steal your money, please do let us know, we will nuke that dumb motherfucker to the moon.

  1. Anyone have experience ordering from rarechems?

    1. Hi,

      Never received order, shipping overseas is neither insured nor being tracked. Rarechems say that there are massive delays with USPS.

      We received two orders from them, they seem to change packing constantly which is a good idea. Quality was okay but there are shops charging less providing better purity imho.

  2. i am just a little concerned that through the new technique i though packages would go out sooner.

  3. Has anyone heard from KIno lately?

    1. Funny you should ask. No. Radio silence for over 2 weeks.

    2. He sent out a newsletter three or four days ago but I am also awaiting response to an email I sent him. There are three open orders, one dating back from early summer (!) that he has simply ignored. RC SCENE refers him between 2.000 and 3.000 visitors every single month. If he plays dead he will wake up surprised. He promised me to never scam anyone and now I receive these emails from customers he indeed has scammed. He would always claim to not have ignored any orders on purpose but I am seriously asking myself if he might waste too much time on the needle instead of living up to his promise. Reading and reacting to emails is no rocket science, he is neither dumb or dishonest, either, like most vendors happen to be. Leaves me puzzled…

      1. So do you think he will come through or should I chalk it up to a loss?

        1. He will be back. Expect a delay of up to 30 days though.

          I best let KINO speak for himself:

          UPDATE 10/30:

          Not taking any orders until all orders are processed. Bringing in lots of help which I hate doing. Not taking orders til TOR website is up hopefully by Sunday. Rest assured if you prepaid me you will get your package but it will be slightly delayed, I did not expect 150 orders in 3 days.

          Please do not email me for package updates, you will get an email when it has shipped, or it will show up.


          Sorry for not having posted this or updated his shop info earlier. These are crazy days. You would not believe. If this was a movie I’d call the plot to be unrealistic.

          1. No worries. I’m not mad at him I know he has a very stressful job.
            Thank you for your reply. I just really hope it’s not thirty days 🙂

            1. He maybe works three hours a day, who stressful could that be?

              Don’t hide and duck if some asshole scams the shit out of you. DEMAND THE ORDER YOU HAVE PAID FOR TO BE SHIPPED. And maybe mention, that receiving the order before New Year’s would suit you better than having to wait for it until 2030.

            2. By the way, yesterday, he deleted his email account… I have no clue if he has done a backup like I asked him to do, best send him an email with your order details attached to

  4. Was curious if Smokey’s has ever been reviewed here before. I’ve checked out most of the vendors listed and haven’t seen it. If anyone has ordered from them over the last 6 months and received their pack I’d like to know. Didn’t have any problems until my last order.. they had great stealth too. They are NL based and ship from different areas. I added something to my last order that I haven’t tried and it never showed. No LL tho. Basically I wanna order my usual and think the compound I hadn’t worked with ended up getting the pack shipped a different route. Or the NL crackdown has left me a vendor orphan 🙁 Thanks.

    1. My last order is dated back about 12 months, sorry no recent verifications but so far always happy with the vendor.

      1. Well in that case, I’ll make an order tonight through them and keep you updated. They have some excellent materials and most are available in more than one form.

        1. If you happened to live in the European Union, use their sister shop They provide a 20% discount if you pay via Bitcoin!

          1. Unfortunately no, I’m from the U.S of Agencies. You probably already knew that though. In my particular state, every bit of research is acceptable, but, the route it takes to get here in the mail may be less open minded. So I’m very grateful for this site in particular.

            I can’t tell you how many times I’ve looked at vendor sites, excited that I would be able to expand my inventory at such cheap prices and got all the way to checkout only to learn they refuse to ship here. Can’t blame em. It’s a shit show.

        2. Ya I am very interested to hear about them. Thx.

    2. Yeah I ordered from Smokey and tracking says it’s a state away, although it has been over a month

      1. Thanks, waiting on my order as well. No tracking on mine though. Would be mighty tempting to not send a small, untracked order if they were dishonest but I suppose I would never know. That isn’t an accusation, just an observation. So far I have no reason to believe they aren’t a trustworthy vendor.

    I was surprised to see paracelsus labs as “unknown status”. been ordering once a month for at least a year now for my pain relief. dude has always been quick to answer my emails. i hope they do better by you. guy is a literal life saver in my case.

    1. You’re right, the categories sometimes tend to be misleading. His place is in “said to be okay”, I only added a line explaining that there have been reports of watered down quality compounds recently. He’s back on top of the elevator, thx!

        Failed back surgery

        I do admit that quality did go down a bit but its still pretty good in my opinion. I just hope he gets that white crystal powder quality back eventually. The tan clumpy powder he’s offering now still works great for my needs though. Ill make sure to update you guys if anything goes south with them.

        I also forgot to thank you guys too for all that you do to help keep us safe. I appreciate you guys as well! The war on drugs is a war on us!

        1. That’s a kind gesture 🙂

          I also want to THANK everybody who sent in pictures and brief reviews of their shop experiences – very much appreciated! I will add all of them as soon as I find time to.

          Also, I’d like to remind you that it would be lovely if RC SCENE web server costs and expenses could be supported by small donations, as little as 2 USD. So far, we collected about 200 USD hoping it to become 400 by the end of the year, so that parts of IT costs could be covered.. Everyone, be it donations or updates or sending in mini reviews, means great help for the project :))

            1. That is kind of you, thanks a lot!

              Would you happen to know a Monero exchange that converts the coins back into “real” money?

            2. Hej, please send 1 USD. Now that I have set that thing up I am curious how it works 😅

            Unfortunately I do not know. But you can always convert XMR coin to BTC using a couple of different sites (I like ShapeShift). I recommend looking around on the Monerno SubReddit. I just like to convert my left over BTC to XMR and hold it hopping that it’ll sky rocket in value like BTC did in 2017.

            I can’t reply to your last comment for some reason.

            1. Turns out there are couple of XMR exchanges available, that thing is progressing.

              Comment levels are restricted to four I think. If that figure was increased, comments on level 5 or 6 would look terrible on smartphones, unfortunately.

              ALL FOR YOU:


  6. Going on 2 months now missing a 100+ order of 2fdck from neev labs. Emailed them multiple times zero communication. Never had an issue in over 2 years other then them being extremely slow. Hopefully they will make good on it at some point but I’ve pretty much written them off.

    1. Thank you for sharing your experience!

      Sorry for your loss. He was already categorized a scammer. The shop will remain in this list and category, because if I put him onto the scammers page only, hardly anyone would read that information, unfortunately.

      I hope that no one would order from a vendor that is listed #avoid #scammer here.

  7. Labratech was an awesome vendor for about 2 years for me but as of this month they have scammed me twice. I received confirmation that my order and payment was received, but never shipped. It’s been about a month since the first order they never sent me. Also THEY DO NOT RESPOND TO DISCORD ANYMORE. I’m said to leave this review because they were so consistent for years:(

    1. Thank you for sharing your experience! We have customers that got scammed and customers that would order with them on the list, LabraTech is meanwhile listed unknown. I case you sent an email with further proof, or you are not the only one claiming to having been scammed, they will be placed to the scammers’ section.

      It’s not that I wouldn’t believe you, but as of today (not having read the inbox in a while, tbh.) you are the first complaint, maybe we should contact them and try to resolve the issue. If they do not respond to messages anymore, it would look like an exit scam.

  8. Thought I would post an update as I have been a part of this forum since day 1. Jberg is a complete scam, don’t even try it along with kilo. Paracelsus is also sending out poor quality chemicals that have been mentioned by many people so watch out for that. He is also known for cutting/tainting products so be careful y’all.

    1. Thank you for sharing your experience! Paracelsus is now categorized UNKNOWN due to quality issues. Jberg was already listed a scammer, KILO is listed UNKNOWN, I hope that reflects your experience.

  9. Received my back order from kino today. And sorry for using a fake email address too I won’t do that again.

    1. Using a fake email address is not a problem at all! Well, at least unless you expected me to mail you back 😉

      Since we are in America here, in San Francisco, I think, I have fullest understanding for everyone using a throwaway or a fake email address.

      What I tried to say was that always using the same fake email address would make sense: No one can see your email (Automattic and I actually can, since WordPress USA does not allow deletion of personal information because of their Anti-Spam Plugin, I think. In the US, it must also be possible to ask for the deletion of my personal data on any web service, maybe the data appears after some time. WordPress Switzerland would have been better in terms of privacy, but, unfortunately, professional web hosting in Europe is even more expensive than here. We are on a server farm that hosts 20 or 30 million (!) websites and the performance is really good I think.

      My point however was, that if you used the same fake email all the time, your automatically generated gravatar icon next to your name would always remain the same and so provide a better overview when browsing the comments. Personally, I can remember these gravatar icons way better than names. I still believe that registering with gravatar (it’s for free) and using a custom image would be the thing to do, but the icons should do the trick as well.

      Thank you for sticking to the same address now 🙂

      And for sharing your experience with Kino!

      Kind regards!
