Recommended dosage: 100-150mg
Ethylone, also known as M2, MDEC or bk-MDEA is a stimulant and entactogenic research chemicals that is an analog of MDMA (methylonedioxymethamphetamine) and falls under the general category of phenetylamines. It is very close chemically to its sister compound, methylone. It is slightly less potent than methylone by weight but will produce a similar experience. Both methylone and ethylone are analogs of MDMA, differing by the beta-ketone group, and by the ethyl chain instead of methyl, in the case of ethylone. It is still legal in many countries and is one of the research chemicals that produce an effect very close to an MDMA experience. It appeared on the gray market for distribution as an analog of MDMA in cathinone/bath-salts products around the end of 2011. A common dose is roughly 150mg and the onset takes tipically 30 to 45 minutes. Its duration are anywhere between 2 and 6 hours, with after-effects lasting up to 24h. Effects include a rush of energy, a desire for socialisation, increased appreciation of music, profound sense of empathy and world awareness and a peaceful euphoria.
