Hexedrone, full name alpha-methylaminohexanophenone hydrochloride, is a synthetic cathinone (stimulant), similar to its homologues pentadrone and buphedrone. It is usually available as a milky white crystal powder. It is known as a research chemical and a recreational drug.
As a type of cathinone, it acts to increase dopamine release and reduces uptake of serotonin, epinephrine and norepinephrine, thus giving the user feelings of euphoria. Side effects include dry mouth and blurry vision.
The coverage of hexedrone in public media is very lacking, with its spinoff, ethyl-hexedrone, a much more popular product for online vendors. Synthetic cathinones as a whole have been reported on by police and academics since the early 2000′s. Marketed as “plant food”, “plant feeder” and “bath salts”, it is another direction the underground drug industry has taken to exploit legal loopholes.
This is a psychedelic Tryptamine drug that has effects similar to psilocin which is illegal to manufacture, posses, buy, or distribute without the approval of DEA in the United States. It was synthesized by Shulgin in 2009.
It is submitted through oral means, and 4-HO-MiPT dosages ranges from mild to heavy. For example:
Threshold- 5~10 mg
Light or mild- 10~15 mg
Common 15~20 mg
Strong 20~30 mg
Thj-018 is also known as 1-naphthalenyl(1-pentyl-1H-indazol-3-yl)-methanone. This element is a kind of synthetic cannabinoid. It was made as an analog of JWH-018, and had been banned in 2009.
Research chemicals showed that THJ-018 has the core structure, which is substituted with a base of inzadole.this elements, as much as others cannabinoids is insoluble in water, but really dissolved in any lipids and ethanol.
From the moment of creating this substance, it has not been studied. Analysis of the structure of the element presumed, that THJ-018 and JWH-018 has the same binding profile. They also match a lot of vivo properties of Δ9-THC. Same as JWH-018, THJ-018 can exhibit its effect range via full agonism of the CB1 and CB2 receptors of cannabinoid. But some more selectivity is for CB2. THJ-018 has around 5x the potency of its analog, Δ9-THC.
As the popularity of recreational drugs increases, D2PM raises its fame as well. D2PM (Diphenylprolinol or Diphenyl 2-pyrrolidenemthanol) is one of the designer drugs used in the market today and this is similar to pipradol, methylphenidate, desoxypipradol, and even cocaine. This drug is basically a crystalline solid with a stability of 2 years. This was used in preparing the Corey-Bakshi-Shibata catalyst since this primarily serves forensic purposes such as the enantioselective organic synthesis. This is sometimes mistakenly called 2-DPMP (desoxypipradol or 2-benzhydrylpiperidine) that is also a similar chemical recreational drug but not totally the same with D2PM.
If you are a parent of a teenager, or have anyone in your life that you genuinely care about; you need to educate yourself about these research chemicals that are being sold on the Internet. They are often times described as just a harmless recreational drug, but it must be legal if it can be bought online right? Wrong! That is why they are called research chemicals, because they have not been fully or thoroughly studied to really know the risks associated with them.
While it is up for debate as to whether or not the ingestion of these research chemicals is safe, it is quite often referred to as a serious risk to ingest them at all. In fact using a research chemical may very well be more dangerous than using the better studied drug itself. The risk is higher because there is hardly anything actually known about the chemical makeup of these drugs. You are literally stepping into a dark room blindfolded when you step into the realm of research chemicals.
