3-Chloro-PCP (3′-Cl-PCP) is a recreational designer drug from the arylcyclohexylamine family, with dissociative effects. It has comparable potency to phencyclidine but with a slightly different effects profile, being somewhat more potent as an NMDA antagonist but around the same potency as a dopamine reuptake inhibitor.
It was first identified in Slovenia in December 2020.
Per NDEWS Alert (Aug 2021): “there has been continued online interest in 3-Chloro-PCP since its first appearance in drug Subreddit discussion in May 2020. 3-Chloro-PCP (3′-Cl-PCP) is a dissociative NPS commonly abbreviated to “3-Cl-PCP” in drug Subreddits. Online mentions of the drug grew in Fall 2020, and counts have been sustained by new Reddit users each month of 2021.
