What is Eutylone?

by Will Long

November 23, 2021
What is eutylone?

Eutylone is an empathogenic stimulant and substituted cathinone, primarily used as a replacement for other drugs that have already been scheduled and banned, like ephylone and ethylone. Eutylone was first synthesized in a lab in the mid 60s and a patent was subsequently applied for in the UK by Boehringer Ingelheim.

What does eutylone look like?

Eutylone appears primarily as larger crystals/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. According to drug use reports, the substance itself tastes bitter. In terms of effects, it lies somewhere between cocaine and MDMA. The street price is reported as very low due to not being a popular or widespread drug.

Eutylone effects

Eutylone reportedly makes the user feel warm or hot, with fidgeting and bruxism being classic signs of a cathinone like this drug. Users will become talkative, might experience excess swallowing, and might make compulsive decisions. It’s been described as a euphoric midpoint between MDMA and cocaine.

Eutylone abuse

There is a high potential for abuse by eutylone users. Due to it being an easily consumed stimulant, it can be bought for a cheap price and consumed regularly for weeks at a time. Tolerance may or may not develop, but most available data points toward there being some level of tolerance over a matter of two or more weeks. Eutylone use can lead to a use disorder, and its use is not recommended.

Eutylone is essentially a market replacement for ethylone, which is another substituted cathinone in the same drug family. It’s currently being considered for a scheduling recommendation by the UN and the WHO. As of September 2021, the drug is scheduled non-explicitly as a positional isomer of pentylone via the Controlled Substances Act.
