3-CMC sold as methamphetamine
This sample, sold as methamphetamine , did not contain methamphetamine but 3-CMC (clophedrone, 3-chloromethcathinone).
3-CMC is a New Psychoactive Substance (NPS) and belongs to the synthetic cathinones of the amphetamine group. Little information is available on the risks, toxicity, side effects and long-term consequences of 3-CMC. It is assumed that 3-CMC has a high neurotoxic effect. The chemical structure is similar to 3-MMC and mephedrone (4-MMC) and is often marketed on the Internet as a mephedrone substitute. Compared to methampetamine, 3-CMC has less of a stimulant effect, is more empathogenic (increases empathy), and is usually dosed slightly higher. If additional doses are taken due to the non-methamphetamine-like effect, an overdose with health side effects can occur and quickly lead to a negative consumption experience.
Due to the lack of scientific studies on 3-CMC as well as the potentially neurotoxic effect of 3-CMC, we advise against its consumption!
False declarations also occur time and again with powders and crystalline samples; it is therefore essential to have these tested before consumption!
Have your substances tested in a Drug Checking
If you do not have the possibility to have substances analysed, always test a small amount to avoid overdoses.
Wait and see
Wait 2 hours after oral intake, as there are always powders / crystals in circulation with unexpected active ingredients, which can have a later onset of action.
Always use your own sniffing utensils when applying powders nasally (sniffing) to avoid infecting yourself or others with diseases.
If you are in possession of a substance that does not appear on this page, this in no way means that it contains the expected ingredient or that it should be safe. The warnings we publish only refer to the substances listed in our Drug Checking offers, these substances pose a high risk of consumption and should not be consumed. A substance may have the same visual appearance (shape, size, colour, etc.) and yet have different ingredients or a different composition. There is no drug use without risk! Only a complete renunciation of drugs is risk-free! If you still decide to use drugs, you should at least follow the safer use rules.
