WHAT ARE CATHINONES?




  • Cathinones are a family of drugs that belong to the psychedelic phenethylamine family.

  • These drugs are often sold online under various โ€˜trade namesโ€™, including Explosion and Ease, or they are misrepresented as MDMA under the name โ€˜mollyโ€™.

  • Negative effects include nausea, vomiting, gastrointestinal discomfort, paranoia, fear, over-awareness and over-sensitization to music and noise, and muscle tension.  

  • Unfortunately, reagent testing can identify a sample as a cathinone, but cannot differentiate them from each other.

WHAT ARE THE EFFECTS
OF CATHINONES? 




  • The effects of many of the cathinones roughly mimic MDMA, which is why they are often misrepresented as โ€˜mollyโ€™.

  • Cathinone users report an introspection of feelings and emotions.  In addition, many people report an increase in sexual libido and willingness to explore partners โ€œintimate side of things.โ€

  • Negative effects include feelings of confusion and a feeling of having a โ€˜divided mindโ€™.

HARM REDUCTION
TIPS FOR CATHINONES




THIS IS AN EXTREMELY NEW SUBSTANCE, WITH A LIMITED HISTORY OF HUMAN USE. THE FULL RANGE OR RISKS FOR THIS SUBSTANCE IS CURRENTLY UNKNOWN.

As with all psychedelics, โ€˜setโ€™ and โ€˜settingโ€™ are extremely important. "Set" is the mental state a person brings to the experience - their thoughts, mood and expectations. "Setting" is the physical and social environment in which the drug is being consumed. By making sure that a person is in a good mental state and supportive location before PMA/PMMA is used, the risk of โ€˜bad tripsโ€™ can be greatly mitigated.

HARM REDUCTION
TIPS FOR CATHINONES

  • Reports of muscle tension in the head and neck reported as โ€˜extremely discomfortingโ€™ are common.
