What Is Crystal MDMA?
Crystal MDMA is the crystal form of the chemical substance called 3,4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine. It is different from molly and ecstasy in terms of appearance and looks although all forms of the drug might contain the same substance.
MDMA crystal or powder is another preparation of the drug but the most common form of ‘ecstasy’ that people report taking, according to last year’s Global Drug Survey.
Good quality MDMA crystal can look exactly like good quality methamphetamine –that would end up being a very different sort of night and day and night.
Crystal MDMA is illegal in most countries and, as of 2019, has no approved medical uses. Limited exceptions are sometimes made for research. Researchers are investigating whether MDMA may assist in treating severe, treatment-resistant posttraumatic stress disorder with phase 3 clinical trials to look at effectiveness and safety expected to begin in 2018.
How Is It Different From Ecstasy.
MDMA, in general, is a common recreational drug. It is also known as Molly or Ecstasy, and to a lesser extent, Mandy or Adam. Crystal MDMA is a drug that can make people feel euphoric and empathetic. Molly is the street name for powder or crystal MDMA, often sold in capsules. Ecstasy is the street name for the pill form of MDMA.
MDMA’s risk profile is low enough to justify further explorations in clinical trial settings. However, this only applies to serious designed research contexts with screened adult subjects and does not apply to any other use of MDMA.
Molly vs Ecstasy vs MDMA, What’s the Difference?
MDMA is the official chemical name for the pure chemical compound – in an ideal world, Molly would be 100% pure MDMA. Molly is a street name for MDMA in powder form, often contained in clear capsules. “Molly” doesn’t mean pure. Ecstasy is a street name for MDMA pills/tablet form.
Caution: Drugs sold as MDMA, Molly or Ecstasy are often impure. 87% of “Molly” analyzed by the DEA between 2009 and 2013 contained 0% MDMA, instead mostly containing “bath salts.
MDMA users think it’s better and it is easier to dose on this crystal form of MDMA that other forms like liquid and powder. If used sensibly, MDMA could reduce the risk of taking much or exposing yourself to a big dose of something really nasty like PMA (Para Methoxy Amphetamine) or PMMA (Para Methoxy Meth Amphetamine).
