Other names for Eutylone
Considered one of the first “designer drugs,” eutylone is a stimulant and psychedelic compound developed in the 1960s. It’s widespread use began in 2019 following bans of the related compound ephylone. Eutylone appears primarily as crystals or rocks that have a cloudy, brownish hue. These crystals can be broken up and encased in gel capsules to make them easily consumable or basically eaten on their own. Those who consume eutylone are typically trying to find a high or euphoric feeling.
According to drug use reports, the substance itself tastes bitter. In terms of effects, it lies somewhere between cocaine and MDMA. It makes the user feel warm and often causes fidgeting and spasms.
The street price is reportedly very low.
