Synthetic cathinones

A.K.A: Bath salts, Eutylone, Flakka (Alpha-PVP), M-Cat (Mephedrone), Monkey Dust (MDPV)

Synthetic Cathinones are a large group of drugs that mimic the effects of the khat plant. They are stimulant drugs, meaning they speed up your brain and body functions.

They are often mis-sold as other drugs such as MDMA, as they can have some similar effects, but are generally active at lower dose and are more unpredictable and unpleasant.

Synthetic Cathinones can make you feel alert, energetic, and confident. They can also make you feel anxious, nauseous, jittery, and feverish. In higher doses, Synthetic Cathinones can put lots of strain on your body, especially your heart. 

How to be safer when using

  • If swallowing, wait an hour for the effects to kick in before deciding to take more.
  • Use drug checking services to make sure you know what you have.
