3,4-Methylenedioxy-N-methcathinone (also known as M1, MDMC, βk-MDMA, and Methylone) is an entactogenic and stimulant substance of the cathinone chemical class that produces a mixture of entactogenic, stimulating, and euphoric effects when administered.
This compound is often used as a substitute for MDMA due to similarities in their effects.
Methylone, or 3,4-methylenedioxy-N-methylcathinone, is a synthetic molecule of the cathinone family. Cathinones are structurally similar to amphetamines, they contain a phenethylamine core featuring a phenyl ring bound to an amino (NH2) group through an ethyl chain with an additional methyl substitution at Rα.
Methylone contains an methyl substitution at RN, a substitution which is shared with MDMA, mephedrone, and certain other stimulants. Methylone contains additional substitutions at R3 and R4 of the phenyl ring with oxygen groups.
Methylone acts as a mixed reuptake inhibitor/releasing agent of serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine.These neurotransmitters are thought to be responsible for regulating pleasure, motivation, focus, and sense of well-being.
In comparison to MDMA, it has approximately 3x lower affinity for the serotonin transporter.
Stimulation – In terms of its effects on the user’s physical energy levels, methylone is commonly considered to be extremely stimulating and energetic. This encourages activities such as running, climbing and dancing in a way that makes methylone a popular choice for musical events such as festivals and raves.
