is the closest thing SWIM
has found to amphetamine
. The HERB
ITSELF IS NOT ILLEGAL
... it is banned from use in "dietary supplements"
and also "ephedrine hcl" is still available in the united states because it is considered an over the counter pharmaceutical, usually in combination with guiaifenesin. The reason why it was banned from dietary supplements is that there was no standardization of the Ma Huang (Ephedra Sinica) extracts used in weight loss, and focus pills.
It's use is now considered taboo to many vendors and this is why they do not sell it, as if they would get a bad reputation because of the supposed negative health effects from overdose i.e. cases of death, which were encountered through non-standardized extracts in supplements used along with aspirin and caffeine
. Evidence with any stimulants
would suggest that it is likely that mixing a vasodilator like aspirin with two stimulants, caffeine (more toxic than ephedrine) and ephedrine (more potent than caffeine).
Ephedra Sinica when a modest handful (about 7 grams) is put in a blender and boiled in a pot
, it produces a nice stimulation from half of the mixture (7grams roughy could equate to 5-10mg of amphetamine), but if SWIY wanted start grinding teeth which SWIM has experienced from Ephedra alone from about 20-30 grams of boiled Ephedra Sinica Twigs. SWIM would relate this dose to about 15-30mg of dextroamphetamine hcl, but with a little less clarity and body load side effects
. Hope this helps.
