MMB-2201 (also known as 5F-AMB-PICA and I-AMB) is an indole-3-carboxamide based synthetic cannabinoid, which has been sold as a designer drug and as an active ingredient in synthetic cannabis blends.[1] It was first reported in Russia and Belarus in January 2014, but has since been sold in a number of other countries. It is the indole core analogue of 5F-AMB. Synthetic cannabinoid compounds with an indole-3-carboxamide or indazole-3-carboxamide core bearing a N-1-methoxycarbonyl group with attached isopropyl or t-butyl substituent, have proved to be much more dangerous than older synthetic cannabinoid compounds previously reported, and have been linked to a large number of deaths in Russia, Japan, Europe and the United States.[2][3]


MMB-2201 is illegal in Russia, Belarus and Sweden.[4]
