    Smoking mephedrone

    Could anyone please point out any info around different sites that has 2 do with smoking mephedrone?

    SWIM tried 2 smoke a very little bit out of a meth pipe, it vaporized extreamly fast with little heat, even faster than crystal.

    The smoke was Smooth however if too much heat gets applyied it starts hitting harsh.

    The taste was somewhat similar to crack cocaine, but just a little bit, id say more like the baking soda not the cocaine, it was a taste that wassent bad but for some reason swim didnt like it much at all.

    He would also blow out huge clouds of white smoke just like meth.

    As for effect, I dont think swim smoked enogh but he did feel minor effects soon after and very short lasting.


    Seems to me like it could be fun 2 smoke, like crystal.

    Re: Smoking mephedrone

    Smoking something that is in salt form is rarely a good idea, and the freebase of 4-MMC is an unstable alkaline oil so that route would be futile to pursue too. Salts have higher molecular weights than their freebases and so need higher temperatures to vaporise, these higher temps mean the chemical is likely to break down and render it inactive. In summary; there's a reason you don't see this done, it doesn't really work.

    You're forgetting lots of things can be smoked in its salt form. Knowing that SWIM had to try it.

    This is a very old thread, and swim learned long ago that mephedrone citrate will break down before its vaporization temperature is reached.

    However I would like to see reports from people who have it in other than its citrate salt.

    Re: Smoking mephedrone

    I recall someone trying it with what I believe was the hydrochloride salt, athough I'm not sure. But it wasn't a successful excersise anyway, they got a mild sensation, so mild that it may have just been placebo.
    Do you have any idea what the most common salt of mephedrone available from RC vendors is vantranist?

    SWIM really is not sure.

    SWIM has only purchased meph a couple of times and is not to into the RC scene as the classic illegals seem to get SWIM much higher when it comes to stimulants.

    Anyways, as you already know most meph does usually come from the same people just being sold at a million different places.

    I may be mistaken but i could swear I read the producer of the drug was keeping its salt a secret.

    Re: Smoking mephedrone

    Well meth, in its usual crystal form, is a hydrochloride salt, so there's no inherent reason why you shouldn't be able to get good results by smoking the HCl salts of other amphetamines like 4-MMC. But as you say, internet vendors only tell you the name of the active part of the molecule, rather than specifying the full chemical formula - so it could be a sulphate, for instance, which wouldn't be so good. SWIM thinks this is why common-or-garden 'speed' in the UK can't be smoked, because it's d-amph sulphate, not hydrochloride, so it burns rather than vaporises.

    True, but regardless whatever salt of 4-methylmethcathinone is going around doesn't seem to lend itself to vaporisation.

    Your experience was interested, SWIM says thanks.

    However, SWIM was wondering if you could convert mephedrone to something in a more smokable form, a form of crack or methamphetamine, rather than smoking the powder.

    SWIM made a thread, and is sorry for going off topic: http://www.drugs-forum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=89775

    pride345 added 8 Minutes and 26 Seconds later...

    Would you be able to elaborate on the freebase form of 4-MMC. By "unstable" what do you mean, and what would the procedure be for producing the freebase?
    Even if it were a liquid I recall a method of smoking ritalin (very different, I know :)) whereby my friend, would use foil, add a chemical (ill try and find out the name, i cannot remember, sorry) and a few drops of water, and obviously some grinded ritalin. However the finished product was almost liquid, but not quite, but it was smokable and provided my friend with a rush/high etc.

    Anyway the above was for ritalin, but would a similar method not be available for mephedrone?

    Forgive me as I am new to the whole world or RC's, and advanced (or even basic) Chemistry for that matter. :thumbsup:

    Re: Smoking mephedrone

    This is just is not smokable at all in practice, not as a base and not as a salt either it would seem.
    The "freebase" of 4-methylmethcathinone is an unstable alkaline oil, not something one would want large amounts of in their lungs and with the low potency of this drug you would need to inhale quite a lot of this substance. Aside from that it would likely undergo significant degradation in the presence of heat as it will degrade quite quickly even at room temperature.

    The basic principal behind converting any amine that has formed a salt back into it's freebase is to expose the compound to a base that would be strong enough to break the ionic bond between the cation and the anion, leaving the "free" cation, in this case 4-MMC. Anyway that's irrelevant in this context because this stuff cannot be smoked.
    I'd advise a swimmer to perhaps stay away from this particular compound completely in light of the disturbing side-effects that have appeared recently.

    Ahh, SWIM understands now, and says thanks. SWIM ordered 2.5g for his plants yesterday but does not plan to feed the plants too much - as SWIM too has read about the unpleasant and possibly fatal? side effects.

    SWIM has learned recently that some friends have started smoking mephedrone with cannabis, and that the effects are quite similar to insufflation with a slightly decreased duration and drastically decreased dosage requirement.

    For instance, 10mg smoked on top of a bowl of cannabis "feels" approximately similar to a 50mg line with cannabis. The mephedrone "melts" into the weed not unlike DMT, and the smoke is slightly sweetened - if it's caustic, you're using too much heat.

    Are there any other SWIMmers with similar experiences with this MOA?

    Swim cant comment personally on this, but he believes that the only way this might work is if you were to vaporize it. The butane in lighters burns at a temp that's like 5 times hotter than a vaporizer, and that probably would burn off the chemical too quickly.

    Are there any experts out there who can comment on whether mephedrone vaporizes or decomposes with heat? Also would decomposition produce hazardous products?

    To the OP: Has your friend attempted smoking mephedrone with cannabis in a rolled joint? Does the mephedrone have to be carefully vaporized w/ a lighter or will a cherry tip take care of that well enough?

    SWIM can assure you that mephedrone on top of cannabis in a dry bong does not require any special treatment other than monitoring the lighter distance from the bowl to ensure the mephedrone "melts" in first (rather than burning), and then the bowl is smoked as usual.

    SWIM finds his friends do not fiend any more than nasal administration, as redosing occurs at roughly the same frequency and cravings do not seem to be any more severe. Typical approach would be a bomb, followed by a few lines or bowls over the next few hours. SWIM is not familar with smoking mephedrone to "start", but only to continue a mephedrone experience.

    SWIM notes that all of this is from very small doses per bowl (10mg or so), and would not recommend you smoke anywhere near what you would use for a line.

    Sounds interesting. If SWIM doesn't forget, he will try to put it in his vaporizer soon and post some results.
    SWIM also knows that this MOA will be highly addictive btw.

    SWIM put some mephedrone in his vaporizer, and it gave slightly stronger effects than snorting. Duration didn't seem to differ much. The smoke that was created tasted quite nice.

    Edit: Some additional info :)
    SWIM used about 40mg, and the effects seemed about equal to snorting 50mg, although it is hard to say on just one experience. Also because usually SWIM uses mephedrone in a party situation, where he is pshysically very active, and while vaporizing he was at home watching a soccer match of his favorite team. SWIM did snort mephedrone in a similar dosage at home before though. The duration also seemed about equal. The vaporizer used was just a plain cheap vaporizer (just a small cup of metal that is heated with a glass pot above it that can be screwed on or screwed off).

    SWIM thinks that vaporizing mephedrone could be a slightly better method in terms of how high a person gets vs how long it lasts vs how much material is required, but as SWIM does not know about how bad the smoke it could be for the longues etc. SWIM would not advice to use vaporizing as the standard method for using mephedrone. Also because vaporizing is probably more addictive than snorting due to a shorter period between ingestion and effect (although SWIM did not experience it this way, pure theoretically).

    Mephedrone smoked?

    like heating it in a testing tube and inhaling the smoke.
    Anyone tested it?

    SWIM thinks smoking mephedrone is likely a bad idea.SWIM had started to IV mephedrone for a fast acting high,and allthough he enjoyed it,the effects didnt last long and also after a time the only effects he got was huge nervousness and a feeling of being on edge (he didnt use more than a half gram in a 2 week period,for around 2 months).So knowing how smoking is also fast acting and also how compulsive smoking other things can be,SWIM thinks a strong personality is needed if SWIMers do smoke.
    SWIM does realise IV and smoking is different but felt he should share info all the same since there are still some similarities-stay well!!

    Re: Mephedrone smoked?

    Swim just tried that small around in a test tube and heated with a lighter. Swim told me it tastes very chemically and there is some effects but it is not pleasant and some how weird but not like mephedrone. It is more like breathing in what tastes like toxic gas. Not recommended.

    Swim also noticed that the smoke does not rise very high and sits very close to the bottom it is a thick white smoke.

    Swim has alerted me whist typing this that he feels his heart is beating slightly faster and he feels not right.

    Swim also told me it was Mephedrone crystal powder if that was any help.

    Swim should note that he does not really like mephedrone and has done only very little in his time but has now snorted, IM injection and now smoked...
