    Horror stories about mephedrone and Ivory Wave are piling up. Please see the Mephedrone forum, and check threads about ivory wave.

    Did I miss any 'bath salts' or similar snuff products?

    that's a pretty complete list.

    as far as we know, the ingredients reported (no analysis has been done on any of these products) to be / have been used in the manufacture of the ( exclusively Irish ?) bathsalts, and "snuffs" :

    4-methylmethcathinone/ 4MMC / Mephedrone : the ideal suspect due to the current mephedrone explosion, could be in a lot of things
    4-fluoromethcathinone /4-FMC/ Flephedrone - for Charge +
    3-fluoromethcathinone /3-FMC

    β-CFT, WIN-35,428/ (-)-2-β-Carbomethoxy-3-β-(4-fluorophenyl)tropane : one "informed" claim as the active ingredient for Ivory wave / vanilla sky - unconfirmed to this day, expensive and complex synth ---- now retracted and identifying the subste as M.D.P.V.

    other possible candidates mentioned, for other actual "legal highs" as well :

    M.D.P.V. (cut, possibly used in quite a few products ivory wave & vanilla skies)

    )Desoxypipradrol / 2-diphenylmethylpiperidine (2-DPMP)

    for pills
    4-Fluoromethamphetamine /4-FMA
    4-FA



    other betaketone / cathinone derivates :

    BK-PMMA /4-Methoxymethcathinone / methedrone
    BK-MBDB / butylone
    BK-MDMA / methylone


    and of course caffeine powder, vitamins, amino acids as usual, sometimes used to dilute a products potency.

    this ingredient list probably expends to more "legal high" products, the great majority of which are sold in the U.K.

    --------------------------------------

    as an extension to this list, some other currently / recently available RC's

    it seems like none of the actual cocaine analogues available, such as dimethocaine or fluorotropacocaine are present, probably for price and potency reasons. Lidocaine has apparety been in at least one mephedrone containing powder to ease insufflation.

    More exotic Dimethylcathinone /Metamfepramone (though is speculated to have been used in at least one legal high since the the israeli pil range)
    as well as Phthalimidopropiophenone, both of which were also used in original the Israeli "legal highs".

    Reason i'm mentioning them is that they were used in the original Israeli pill line which really opened / paved the way to the current RC containing legal highs and bathsalts we're now seeing on the market and the mephedrone explosion- almost wipping out the piperazine derivative pill sales outside New Zealand and Australia.
    Yet it seems like these two RCs are not being used anymore, remplaced by more readily available betaketones and cathinone derivatives.

    Also possibly gone are BK-MDEA (ethylone) and ethcathinone / ethylcathinone, which were recently available as stimulant RC's
    another one seemingly gone is 1,3-dimethylamylamine / geranamine, once used in an energy drink (clearshot)

    this actual pretty much covers all the existing stimulant / empathogenic RC's recently made available.

    The new trend is really the use of WIN-35,428 in a bathsalt, if this is confirmed, which would be a "local" synth, actually requested by the vendor rather than a repackaged / cut RC imported from the usual Chinese chemical retailers, and so far causing quite a few problems.

    on a more historical note, from what I gathered, the trend went from

    - actually "herbal" product based legal highs (ephedra, sida cordifolia / citrus autarium + caffeine extracts), manufactured and sold in the Netherlands and UK smart shops.

    -to the marketing of the first fake "herbal highs" containing piperazines and derivates ( initially identified as "pepper extracts") manufactured and sold mostly in New Zealand / Australia and then in the UK-

    -alongside the occasional, rather rare incident of an actual Research Chemical marketed in Dutch headshops (methylone with "explosion", 2-CB, 2 CT7 with "blue mystic"...) quickly followed by a ban.
    or the odd D.X.M. containing "legal high" incident.
    as a side note, there have been similar developments in the non-stimulant / party pill products, with R.C. cannabinoids such as JWH-018 (in "Spice" and others) being traditional herbal cannabis alternatives (lion's tail, dagga blends), and one case of a kratom product (Krypton) turning out to be O-desmethyltramadol...

    yet despite the new piperazine pills, the R.C. world was still well seperated from the commercially available "legal highs" party pills, sold as such in smart/headshops.

    -then this new Israeli company came up, and pretty much singlehandedly opened the way by introducing cathinone derivatives and other RC's in commercially marketed legal highs.
    RC's, real R.C.'s in pill form, some of them quite obscure / untested, most cathinone derivatives this coming after the hagigat trend in which had become quite popular in Israel, especially in the rave/clubbing world.

    after a little suspense, the mystery ingredients were soon revealed following an analysis partly funded by a new-zealand piperazine pill vendor, and their leading product identified as mephedrone, 4-MMC. The pills were first sold from Israel directly, then banned in Israel, then quickly distributed by other outlets in the U.K. and Europe. A new line was created after the Israeli ban, but never got as popular as the mephedrone pills.

    Mephedrone sales, however, actually expanded, stimulating Chinese production, first in the R.C. market across Europe, with new R.C. vendors popping, up, some almost exclusively focusing business on mephedrone / betaketone / novel stimulant sales.

    these stores were increasingly crossing the boundary between "proper" R.C. outlets, which traditionnally also offered psychedelic R.C.'s and rare chemicals over to the legal high market, and the legal high / party pill world.
    new hybrid shops appeared, in the U.K. and Ireland specifically, specialised in betaketone and stimulant R.C.'s, mephedrone, methylone and a few others.

    Then new legal high mephedrone pill lines came out, sold by head/smart shops.
    fueled by the headshop associated-legal high forum buzz, ear to mouth and either increasingly specialised R.C. outlet or legal high outlets sales, openly identified and packaged as such ( snuffs, pills rather than pured powder) ; mephedrone use expanded, and still is. It then started to hit the media, with an increasing buzz, and governmental attention.

    Increasingly, alarming reports started coming in, with vasoconstriction and potentially mephedrone related deaths- yet such negative reports are actualy quite ancient, actually starting with the original israeli pill range.
    More recently some of these outlets have remarketed their products as plant feeders / hormones for more "discretion".

    The (Irish?) bathsalts represent the last evolution of this movement, with the possible introduction of another untested R.C., (as was mephedrone in the first place). This new R.C. is thought to be "local synth" rather than a import from China, and particularly potent, long lasting and inducing severe near psychotic episodes in quite a few users...

    β-CFT seems highly unlikely since the synth-route requires illegal/unavailable compounds.


    4-fma? which product do you think might contain 4-FMA?
    it is pratically impossible to snort 4-fa which is a close relative to 4-fma.
    there are a LOT more compounds which could be the active ingredient of those 'bath salts' etc.

    i'm pretty confident that some of these products indeed contain "new" chemicals.

    i wasn't refering to a 4-FMA "snuff" but to pills. It was mentioned as a candidate for a recent product, and was one of the ingredients in the original israeli pill range btw
    Analysis of Neorganics Products: 5 new drugs banned in Israel


    for the β-CFT reference, this comes from one pretty affirmative report found here
    Ivory Wave Ingredient Revealed: β-CFT, WIN-35,428

    I agree with your comment ( though it was also implied that there might be an indirect link with the criminal underworld, and the compound has recently appaeared on an RC vendor's list of requestable custom synths) and would also love to see this discussed further in the above thread, thanks
    edit : now retracted and identified as MDPV

    and finally I was mentioning the R.C.'s recently available, and rather common ingredients.
    please list the other many other / novel candidates for active ingredients that you think might currently be used in the "bathsalt" and other R.C. containing legal high products.
    would these be coming from custom "local" synths or synthed / imported from the more usual chemical sweatshops ?

    thanks.

    Swim tried hurricane charlie recently.
    He know very well the ketones compound, mdpv, dmaa, and ivory wave.

    He start with a small amount app. 10mg, allergic test. That's ok.

    Now real test.
    App.80mg: T-0:00; a white crystalin powder, with an indefinite smell.

    T+0:10: light stimulation, more than coffee less than ephedrine. Light anxiety feeling.
    T+0:30: nothing more.
    Another hit, app.80mg.
    T+0:45; medium stimulation. Feels like on ephedrine, tachycardia, anxiety, unpleasent buzz. No mydriasis. No emphaty. No sedation. No taste, just stimulation.
    T+1:00: nothing more, the effect still present at...
    T+2:30: another hit, app. 100mg.
    T+2:40; strong stimulation, he began to
    grit one's teeth, nibble is own lip, Strong anxiety. Not really pleasent effect.
    It's finished, no more...
    T+6:00: effect still present.

    He things that's not some ketones, for sure that's not mephedrone, methylone, butylone, ethcath, methedrone. Maybe another one.
    Not like mdpv. Less stronger and not the same taste/smell.
    Much stronger than dmaa. And don't have the same taste.

    He recognized some resemblances with the ivory wave, but with less empathy. And with less compulsive consumption. And more bad side effect (yes it's possible).
    Ivory wave wasn't pleasent, this one is worst for swim.

    He will add other comment tomorrow.

    The thing about judging a pill/snuff by taste is the same problem with illegal drugs, it's likely full of binder and fillers, which most likely are the major contributors to the tasteof these products. Still a fascinating thread

    see, as i was saying, i don't know how much of a taste 4-methyl-methcathinone has, but i know that b-vitamins have a very noticable taste, especially b-12 and b-6, so it would be near impossible to taste the miligrams of drug if multiple miligrams (or micrograms, i forget which scale its on) of b-12 were present. any way, it has a very strong taste

    any new theories on the long lasting, stimulating yet non euphoric compounds in these products ?
    novel DARIs, custom synths or just existing, currently available ones ?

    Last week SWIM was stopped and searched on the street. He was found with a half gram of Blow: intense euphoria in his pocket, it was still in it's packaging. SWIM explained what it was and that it was legal but was arrested for suspicion of possession of a controlled substance. After a stripsearch, questioning and signing a form to say that they had seized my Blow SWIM was allowed to leave. They said that they are sending it to their forensics lab to test it to confirm what it is. SWIM doesn't expect to hear back from them about it but was planning on contacting them himself. Does anyone know if SWIM can claim the Blow back or ask for the results of the forensic tests so SWIM can know for sure what is in it? This all happened a few days ago. SWIM has been arressted a few times now for possession of legal drugs but never charged with anything yet.

    ^ It would be useful to ask at least. Any more words on the effects of blow? How long does it last? Is it speedy euphoria or more MDMA-like and mellow etc..

    There is also a product called "Dusted" which swim enjoys very much.
    It does sting swims nose a little but it fades away after a min or two.
    Swim tells me that the high is very pleasant with a touch of euphoria and sprinkling of empathy.

    Does anybody know what the main active chemical is in Dusted?
    Swim tried searching and hasnt found an answer.

    ps.The stimulant qualities in Dusted last for quite a while and Swim finds it hard to sleep even 12 hours after insufflation.:thumbsup:

    hi,
    does anybody know what "white gold" is about ?
    my curious monkey asked me yesterday and cannot sleep...
    some people specify mephedrone, the others methylone...
    i know, its practically impossible determine "active" substance in this kind of drugs,
    but at least - what dose is proper for my monkey beginer ?
    or its more "speedy" or rather "euphoric" ?

    interesting, don't know if this comes from actual analysis or hereasay, yet

    this article here mentions
    "A variety of psychotropic substances such as mephedrone, 3-FMC, methylone, butylone and MDPV, which are found in F1, F2, Toot and Charge."

    Refined 4-MMC ? what kind of process are we talking about ?
