Buy 4-MPD research chemicals online from Chemicalfrog.com
4-MPD is a complex biochemical, and as such it is of particular interest to mass spectrometers and anyone who calibrates similar lab equipment. It also sees a lot of use in a forensic context, as a reference sample. Other scientists may use it for neurological or psychiatric research, depending on their particular experimental goals. In any case, it is sold exclusively as a research chemical, and any other use is unacceptable.
What exactly is 4-MPD
4-MPD is also known as 4-Methyl-α-methylamino-valerophenone and 4-Methylpentedrone. It is a cathinone type stimulant. Like most synthetic stimulants of the cathinone family, it is built around a phenethylamine core. It is distinguished by the ketone group attached to its beta carbon and by the Alkyl group attached to the alpha carbon.
The cathinone family is so called because of their chemical similarity to cathinone itself, a natural stimulant found in the khat plant.
Purchasers of 4-MPD should take care that this chemical is not on any restricted or banned list in their communities. There is a growing trend to prohibit the sale or possession of chemicals that are physically or chemically similar to recreational drugs and other controlled substances. 4-MPD is sometimes identified as an analogue of methcathinone, which is considered a controlled substance in the US as well as many other jurisdictions.
It is the sole responsibility of the buyer to comply with all local, national or regional regulations. For more information, see our shipping page.
Possible biological effects of 4-MPD
4-MPD has not undergone the extensive, formal human testing which would be needed to fully understand its physiological and psychological effects on humans or animals. Nonetheless, there is a growing trade in the substance as a recreational pharmaceutical. Though this process cannot be condoned, it has yielded anecdotal evidence of the chemical’s properties.
Some users have reported that it works as a powerful anaesthetic or numbing agent, being particularly effective at blocking muscle and / or limb pain. This distinguishes it further from other cathinone type stimulants, as they tend to produce a fairly random range of physical sensations.
More troubling side effects of 4-MPD use include sensations of nausea, dizziness and general discombobulation. These seem to be typical of cathinone type stimulants, though there is currently no reliable data on the dosage at which they first become apparent.
Other side effects of 4-MPD include a tendency for subjects to hallucinate or experience a so called ‘psychedelic’ effect. Hallucinations have been reported as anywhere from severe to extremely mild, and may or may not be dosage-dependent. Other users described increased energy levels – expected from a stimulant – and a distinct sensation many describe as a ‘body high’. Again, these are typical of the cathinone class of synthetic stimulants.
Just like all ChemicalFrog products, 4-MPD sales are subject to our full Terms and Conditions. It is sold as a research chemical only, and is not to be used for any kind of human consumption.
