N-ethylpentedrone sold as methamphetamine
This sample, sold as methamphetamine , did not contain methamphetamine but N-ethylpentedrone (NEP).
N-Ethylpentedrone belongs to the group of cathinones. N-Ethylpentedrone is structurally closely related to the better known Pentedrone and is said to have up to three times stronger effects according to user reports. N-Ethylpentedrone has a stimulating, euphoric and slightly entactogenic effect. According to various user reports, N-ethylpentedrone is dosed similarly to methamphetamine. However, misdeclaration of these substances can quickly lead to a negative consumption experience due to the unexpected effect. Since there is little information available regarding the effects, risks, side effects, toxicity, and long-term consequences of N-ethylpentedrone, one is taking an unknown health risk when consuming this sample.
Due to the lack of scientific studies on N-ethylpentedrone, we do not recommend its consumption! With powders and crystals there are always false declarations; these substances must therefore be tested!
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.
