When using this stuff and going beyond the separation from mind and body and hit the separation from soul and mind....
My soul is having an orgasm..
Wow, limonov that was an epic post. Very informative.
Anyway, the way I see it is that MXE is a strong anti-depressant and I rather take it then something physically addictive like SSRI's or whatever. With that said I know it's not smart to use this stuff everyday but i'm honestly just self-medicating. When I started taking MXE my depression completely went away and the past month has been nothing but happiness. Not numbness (fuck SSRI's) but true happiness. I'm not a drug addict just someone looking to get rid of my anxiety/depression problems and enjoy life. So far MXE is helping me do that so I don't see a reason for me to stop. Also, I don't abuse the stuff...I only take between 40-60mg a day and I only take hole doses once every couple weeks.
anyone else get muscle ache from this stuff?
Ive noticed if i take this the same day i have been working out i will be very sore the day after.
Also i have been rehabbing a bad back for a while now and it was getting better, a few doses of this got me back to feeling sore again though.
Ive been doing some ketamine and that doesnt seem to have this side effect at all though, also drugs like lsd or shrooms almost makes me feel better so i´m having a hard time finding the reason for this weird side effect.
I took another bump this morning.
I have been using this compound everyday for the last 6 days. A low dose puts me into a nice happy place, but when I start coming down I feel speedy, and compelled to take a hit so it would put me back into the calm state I was in. This compound is odd, its like when I'm coming down I feel speedy and the urge to redose. Well I plan on using this every other day, as no other compounds is as powerful as a anti-depressant agent.
Still doing my once a week 60mg ish sesh, spread over the evening, tolerance hasnt gone up by much and still get a beautiful positive stimulated glow for awhile after. haven't been properly balls deep with it for awhile, might have to at some point. always gets nice and twisted. cant put it into words. orgasming out the universe comes close
works a wonder drinkng alcohol on the glow as well, stops me getting so drunk. also stops me wanting stimulants to mix with the booze
MXE is magical stuff
So I've actually asked before and been told "no," but is MXE an analogue of PCE, a Schedule I drug in the U.S.? This would make it prosecutable under the analogue laws, whereas if it were only an analogue of ketamine it wouldn't be because ketamine is Schedule III. I ask because in Drugs in the Media there's a story about a US seizure, and it references the Food Drug and Cosmetics Act which states a new drug may not be sold in the country without an FDA-approved application as being the the rationale for seizure. The bag was labelled "Not for human consumption," not as a drug but as usual that doesn't matter so much when it comes to just confiscating a chemical that brings joy. If it was prosecutable under the Analogue Act why wouldn't LE have referenced that instead of this less legally austere act? A respondent in the thread who has struck me as knowledgeable in the past DOES say MXE is an analogue of PCE, so now I wonder if the poster who told me it wasn't an analogue of PCE was misinformed. Did LE just not know or what's going on? Technically speaking at least, I believe maybe it's going to depend on the specific name for the structural relationship MXE has with PCE and whether that nomenclature is covered explicitly in the Act. I'm not certain myself and it's weird more people haven't made this argument if it's true but it'd be nice to get a comprehensive explanation. Obviously LE is going to seize whatever for whatever reason in many cases but when it comes to actual prosecution technicalities are probably going to matter more.
But I think that whem people talk about these things on this site they should at least stress that they dont reccomend doses like that for everyone or that they may have been using the substance a bit foolishly. I would hate for anymore mxe tragedies to happen because of the large degree of misinformation ive seen posted throughout some of these threads. Im not trying to single you out jwallace, in fact ive never had a problem with the way you talk about your usage im just trying to stress the whole harm reduction thing especially with this stuff.
I also completely agree that everyone should do their research and know all the dangers of the substances they use but lets be real here, we know thats not how the world works. It seems a bit counter-productive to go about it with an attitude like "he should have known better."
I think the only reason it hasn't be prosecuted as a PCE analog is that drug enforcement is so fragmented within the US that it's never been put to trial by an agency with the cash/inclination to 'make an example' out of someone by hiring a bunch of 'expert witnesses' and getting them to explain MXE structure to a jury, explain how few similiarities it really has to Ketamine and how it does have a 'substantial similarity' in structure/effect to PCE.
I think the thing that people are forgetting is ketamine itself is a PCP analog- PCP is the 'mother-drug' of the class, all derivatives within the class can be considered 'PCP-analogs'. Ketamine itself is a PCP analog- it's just that ketamine has a thousand legitimate medicial uses so gets a special excemption (and saved the share price of parke-davis after the disaster that was PCP as an anesthetic) and that is why it is specfically listed as a schedule III drug- I think we're lucky that the doctors and teh WHO won out and kept ketamine as an anesthetic, but ketamine got a special hallpass and I don't think 'ketamine analogs' was ever going to help from a legal sense.
It's like talking about developing "an active loperamide analog that is 100 times more potent than fentanyl!"- putting aside the fact that loperamide was developed from fentanyl, if you discovered a new active opiate derived from loperamides structure you wouldn't get a special pass, you'd simply be prosecuted under the fentanyl analog laws...what with it probably qualifying as a fentanyl analog. It's the same thing here- I think people have simply been taking MXE and telling themselves 'this isn't covered by the analog act because ketamine is schedule III' until they've really, truly started to believe it. Maybe they're right- all I'm saying is that the DEA seems to do and convict who it pleases as it pleases, if they wanted to 'take on MXE' they would, they would probably simply use the preexisting PCX-analog laws and build a case around 'proving' MXE is NOT a ketamine analog, but rather is a PCE analog thus quite fucking illegal. More illegal than, say, 2C-B. At the same time you could also argue that bupropion, being a phenthalylamine, is a 2C-B analog- it's not like we're dealing with well written or rational legislation here. It's intentionally vauge so that they CAN selectively prosecute and MXE definately something they'd want to prosecute, if only to discourage 'underground research'.
Unless the compound you're talking about contains around 75% of the ketamine skeleton it's most likely going to be considered a PCP analog by the courts. I think everyone was fooling themselves in regards to the law (as far as the states go- the RC scene seems to be a China-Europe partnership, with the US simply being the biggest consumer)- as well as the reality. If they want to charge you, they'll find a way to charge you. And using some act or some witness they will do so, mainly because they're kinda right and a Jury isn't going to make an objective judgement when you put chemistry on trial- they'll be clueless and give the verdict the prosecuter with the expert witnesses tells them to.
Plus, just look at the structural differences- ketamine = 2'-Chloro-2-Oxo-PCM Methoxetamine 3-MeO-2-Oxo-PCE. You've completely removed the 2'-chloro group (a definining feature of ketamine- in my opinion the Chlorine molecule is THE defining feature of ketamine, both structurally and in its effects- the chlorine molecule makes it weak, hence you don't overdose on 50mg like with PCP), you've kept the 2-Oxo (but that's only to keep ketamines analgesic profile) and you've swapped the methyl group (PCM) for an ethyl group (PCE) in order to boost the potency, resulting in a chemical that has very little structural similiarity to ketamine. 3-Meo-2-Oxo-PCM, that'd be a ketamine analog. Maybe 2'-Chloro-2-Oxo-PCE would also be a ketamine analog. 3-MeO-2-Oxo-PCE is not a ketamine analog in my opinion- never was, never has been.
At the same time, I have a great deal of faith in the general ignorance of the majority of people. Yes, I posted this openly on an open forum- but only 0.00001% of people are gonna read it, and half of them will misinterpret what I've said. I think ignorance is what's keeping people safe, in a legal sense.
'Ketamine analog' was always just a marketing term, as far as I see it. It's never had that much in common with ketamine, but has always had quite a bit in common with good old PCP.
And yes, you're all pussies and should be taking PCP by now. It's time to grow up boys . Or from looks of things, what half of the posters on these threads needs isn't MXE- it's a decent ketamine hook-up. What I meant was compare the B&D 3-MeO-PCP thread to the NINE B&D MXE threads- you'll see a lot of actual harm reduction and important infomation in one, in the other you'll mainly read justifications for daily drug use and 'woooah I'm sooooooooo fuuuuuuuuuuuckskkkkkkwed! Just railed 250mg [equiv= 1250mg ketamine] in one go!' style posts giving dangerous dosage reports/'guidance' with little no to no context. The only difference seems to be one of these analogs is treated like PCP and one of them is treated like ketamine. I'll leave it to individuals to work out which is which.

I'd personally would rather be doing ketamine and I have access to it. MXE is just way cheaper and a little goes a long way. Personally, I think I'm mostly done with large doses. As long as no scary toxicity reports emerge, I can easily see low doses (20-30mg) becoming my #1 recreational/functional substance, as opposed to smoking a joint or having 1 or 2 drinks. I think MXE has this huge appeal in that it's cheap (also snortable which for me is a plus), fucks you up, but not too much in large doses, and isn't illegal in the states yet. I think there's a huge demand for a subtle, cheap psychedelic that can be taken and then enjoyed without heavily interfering with your day to day activities, and if you can control your doses of MXE well enough, it is indeed that kind of drug.
And now that I look it up, 'Ethylamine analog of phencyclidine (Eticyclidine; PCE)' is schedule I, along with PCPy and TCP. So :P.
My girlfriend can't stand this chemical, a low dose maybe 10-15mg and she was full of anxiety for hours (it don't ease GBL edginess claro que no). On me, this product is certainly manic, and ... I like that. Definitely addictive, is there a speed head that can count all the "O My god this stuff is amazinGG with a valium" on all the big and dancy threads hehe. I admit I tried it^^
This drug gave me joy to feel like a hypochondriac.
i´ve found something. maybe this is bullshit. would be cool if someone could clear that up
maybe this is bullshit. would be cool if someone could clear this up.METH AND WOMEN1
Biologically, women's bodies handle crystal differently than men's. Women produce a form of the enzyme dopamine beta-hydroxylase that is slower than the form produced by men. This enzymes breaks down dopamine in adrenaline, which increases energy, elevates mood, and can also cause anxiety. It is likely that this difference results in gender specific experiences of the drug.
Tolerance build really fast, or for me it has. Doing small bumps a few times a week, it has sky rocked to more than double the size of my normal small bumps I used to get a fine little high out of. Not tried a medium or a big dose yet, but looking forward to going deeper into it.
A shame my trusted vendor had stopped selling it, so only got like 250mg left, just have to enjoy the rest of it.
Do we have an MXE "data thread" or similar?
This batch is from -snip- (a chinese vendor). I hope to follow up with a test of material from -snip- (a well reputed british vendor) soon.
The batch is slightly off white with a pleasant, sweet smell. I do not recognise it as a solvent and assume it to be a precursor. The particles ranfged from very small to about 0.75mm and the powder was free-flowing.
I attempted to dissolve 220mg of MXE in 10mls of hot isopropyl alcohol.
It clearly wouldn't dissolve fully. I then chilled it to -15*C and removed most of the solvent. After drying 150mg was left with larger (0.5mm) particles remaining off-white, while what has presumably recrystallised is now white.
This is a total solubility of 6g/L, so relatively insoluble.
Edit: I tried 35mg of the portion which dissolved in IPA. It is every bit as strong as I would expect.

I have been using this drug everyday for the last week, and I wanted to say tolerance has finally caught up to me.
I am now doing 60mgs in the morning, which I consider a low dose, vs my old low dose was 30mgs.
Oh well I will keep using this everyday, as people said its safer than ketamine.
This is not a substance to be doing every day. I posted in here before, I went through my first gram in 4 days, and my second gram in 3. Believe me, you need to be careful with this stuff, psychologically it's very addicting. I highly advise you to cut back to every other day. Tolerance is going to build fast for you if you continue doing as much as you're doing.
Chill dubstep is so nice on MXE
I agree with wallace... having used a ton of both, i would say mxe has more abuse and addiction potential than ket... ive always been able to control my ket use but mxe i always have problems not using it everyday if i have a decent amount sitting around...
And since there have been no clinical trials there is no evidence that its any safer than k...
