Caution! Every person is different. So be careful when you first start using a new substance. It may be that you tolerate less than you would expect. Good experience with MDMA doesn’t mean you will respond well to methylone. Conversely the same applies. Always start with a low dose and see what it does to you.
Methylone (bk-MDMA) Crystal is a chemical drug which is very similar in structure to MDMA and has comparable effects. Methylone is a stimulant with a mild hallucinogenic effect.

Methylone is a chemical drug which is very similar in structure to MDMA and has comparable effects. Methylone is a stimulant with a mild hallucinogenic effect. Because it’s a relatively new substance it’s called a research chemical. It’s recommended to treat methylone with caution: because of its short existence, not much research has been conducted and not much is known about long-term effects or addiction rates.
Usually, methylone is offered as powder, but pills are in circulation as well. As with XTC, these tablets can differ in size, colour and strength.
Methylone was first synthesized in 1994 by the famous chemists Peyton Jacob III and Alexander Shulgin. Smart shops started to sell it under the name ‘Explosion’ in 2004. It was marketed as an air freshener, never as a stimulant. Methylone was sold in a solution along with a fragrance, ostensibly to freshen the air. The solution was offered in 5 cm long tubes with a screw cap. One tube was supposed to be enough for one dose.
Methylone takes effect 20–30 minutes after intake.
Strong tendency to talk
Possible tingling sensations in the body, especially on top of the skull
Possible increased libido
Greater capacity for empathy
Reduced anxiety and insecurity
Hallucinations are possible with a high dose, which usually means the dose was too high. Insensitive persons these effects can already occur at a lower dose.
Loss of appetite
Slightly rolling eyes
Increased blood pressure and heart rate
Increased body temperature
Stiff jaws, at high doses the mandible can start flapping
In some cases: blurred vision
A high dose can lead to nausea and vomiting
The effects of MDMA and methylone are similar, but there are clear differences as well:
The effect of methylone is at least two times shorter: after two hours the effects have almost completely worn off. This can be tricky while partying, as a second tablet wouldn’t work any more.
As less serotonin is released in the brain, methylone doesn’t cause the same exaggerated ‘in love’ feeling as MDMA. Therefore you’ll remain brighter, better approachable and more concentrated.
As less serotonin is consumed and the effects last shorter, the dip of methylone is usually less severe than that of MDMA. However, extra dopamine and serotonin are released during the trip, which creates euphoric and energetic feelings. By using these ‘happiness substances’ all at once, usually, a dip occurs afterwards when the brain has to deal with low dopamine and serotonin levels.
Therefore it’s advisable to take supplements before and after the use of methylone in order to restore the dopamine and serotonin levels in the body. A very solid formula is After-E; it will restore the serotonin levels quickly and counteracts oxidative stress.
If you add 0.5 mg melatonin to After-E you will sleep easier and you will recover faster. Melatonin is a good brain protector as well. Furthermore, magnesium supplements are recommended to decrease potential cramping. Do you want to do it completely right? Start taking L-tryptophan daily one week before you take methylone. This will help your body to produce sufficient amounts of serotonin. During the methylone trip, you will have enough in stock, which makes your experience more pleasurable and it reduces the hangover afterwards. At last, Vitamin C-, E- and B-complex are recommended to combat oxidative stress.
In fact, eating healthy is the most effective way to prevent a hangover: nutrients are better absorbed from food than from supplements. Especially fruits and vegetables contain lots of antioxidants: blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, broccoli and kiwi are rich sources of antioxidants. Obviously, it’s not always easy to consume these foods after using a stimulant. A fresh juice or smoothie may be a nice alternative.
