5F-PB-22 (5F-QUPIC or Quinolin-8-yl 1-pentyfluoro-1H-indole-3-8-carboxylate) is a designer drug which acts as a cannabinoid agonist. The structure of 5F-PB-22 appears to have been designed with an understanding of structure-activity relationships within the indole class of cannabinoids.
In January 2014, 5F-PB-22 was designated as a Schedule I controlled substance in the United States after several deaths were associated with its use.
In the United Kingdom (as of May 2016), previously unregulated substances deemed to be psychoactive are now controlled by the Psychoactive Substances Act. Consequently, the sale, distribution, import, and purchase of 5F-PB-22 is banned.
