What is Naphyrone?
Naphyrone is a stimulant drug closely related to the cathinone family which includes mephedrone. Naphyrone does not have a long history of use, so there is little evidence of its long term effects or on the risks from using it. However, due to its similarity to other cathinones, naphyrone is likely to share the same effects and risks.
The high potency of naphyrone by comparison with other cathinones suggests that it is likely to be associated with a higher risk of accidental overdose.
Naphyrone is normally found as a fine white or off-white/yellow powder.
Naphyrone is is usually snorted like powder cocaine or swallowed (‘bombed’) in wraps of paper. When naphyrone was sold over the internet as a ‘legal high’, it was often described as a plant food, research chemicals or bath salts, and ‘not for human consumption’. It was sold at between £15 and £25 a gram.
What are the effects of naphyrone?
Naphyrone does not have a long history of use, so there is little evidence of its short and long term effects. As naphyrone is related to the cathinones it can be assumed that it is likely to share the same effects as other cathinones, such as euphoria, talkativeness, alertness and feelings of empathy.
What are the risks of taking naphyrone?
Naphyrone does not have a long history of use, but it’s likely to share the same risks as other cathinones such as insomnia, loss of short-term memory, vertigo, grinding of teeth and sweating.
