What is mephedrone?
Buy Mephedrone Powder Online is a synthetic stimulant with empathogenic effects that is chemically similar to methcathinone and therefore is in the cathinone group.
These compounds are derivatives of the phenethylamines (family of amphetamine compounds
that include MDMA ‘ecstasy’).
Each of the phenethylamine compounds has a parallel compound (an analogue) that is a cathinone.
What does it do?
The effects of 4‐Methylmethcathinone are often compared by users to those of MDMA, and other euphoric stimulants. Mephedrone is often confused with methedrone (4‐ methoxymethcathinone) or methylone (bk‐MDMA), due to the similar names, although they are different compounds. It is a little less potent than MDMA by mass. As of 2009, it is most often found as a powder, though some tablets have been pressed that include 4‐ methylmethcathinone

not have any substantial hallucinogenic effects. Effects include: mental and physical
stimulation, feelings of openness and empathy, increased sociability and talkativeness, a
pleasurable rush, decreased appetite, pupil dilation, unusual body sensations (flushing,
goosebumps), change in body temperature regulation, increased heart rate and blood
pressure and sweating.
Depending on how much and how recently one has eaten food, oral 4‐
methylmethcathinone generally takes 15‐45 minutes to take full effect. On a full stomach,
onset can be considerably slower. When insufflated (snorted), effects are usually felt within
a few minutes and the peak is reached within 30 minutes or less. The primary effects of 4‐
methylmethcathinone last approximately 2‐3 hours when taken orally. For many people
there is an additional period of time (1‐4 hrs) where it is difficult to go to sleep but where
mood and mind‐set are mostly back to baseline. It is quite common for users to report a
strong urge to redose as the effects wane, between 45 and 120 minutes after initial
ingestion. With lower levels of consumption, the day‐after effects are relatively mild, with
most users reporting light to no hangover (EUCHEMICALONLINE.COM).
With increased doses comes the increased likelihood of negative effects. These can include:
desire to redose, uncomfortable changes in body temperature (sweating and chills), heart
palpitations, impaired short term memory, insomnia, tightened jaw muscles, grinding teeth
(trismus and bruxia), muscle twitching, nystagmus, dizziness, light headedness, vertigo.
Some user reports collated on erowid.org suggest vasoconstriction when snorted: pain and
swelling in nose and throat
What is the legal status of mephedrone in the UK ,USA ,EUROPE?
The ACMD are scheduled to provide a report to Ministers on the cathinones (including
mephedrone) in 2010. However, because of the recent resignation of the ACMD Chair and
other experts it is unknown whether this delivery date still stands.
Cathinone and some of its derivatives are already controlled under the Misuse of Drugs Act
1971. These include:
• Cathinone itself (Class C; active constituent in Khat (currently uncontrolled))
• Methcathinone (Class B; the analogue of methylamphetamine)
• Pyrovalerone (Class C)
Most substituted cathinones are not controlled. There are six principal members of this
group and all have been seen in illicit products in the UK, these include:
• 4‐Methylmethcathinone (Mephedrone, 4‐MMC)
• 4‐Methoxymethcathinone (Methadrone)
• Methylone (the cathinone analogue of MDMA)
• MDPV (the 3,4‐methylenedioxy derivative of pyrovalerone)
• Beta‐keto‐MBDB (the cathinone analogue of MBDB (an early street MDMA substitute))
However, if any of these products are sold as ‘ecstasy’ or other controlled drugs then the
seller could be charged with intention to supply of an illegal Drug
