4-CMC is also known as 1-(4-chlorophenyl)-2-(methylamino)-1-propanone, monohydrochloride. Methcathinone is a psychoactive cathinone that inhibits norepinephrine reuptake.1 4-Chloromethcathinone is an analog of methcathinone and has a chlorine atom inserted at the 4 position of the phenyl ring
What is 4-CMC?
4-cmc also known as 4-chloromethcathinone or Clephedrone is a psychostimulant drug. It is available online as a designer drug. It has been regarded as a controlled substance and is available only for scientific research purposes. 4CMC was marketed as a replacement to mephedrone after it was banned.
4cmc Is a Cathinone and is a endogenous monoamine alkaloid which has been found in the plant Catha edulis (khat) that is most common among the African and Arabian Peninsula, where it has been used as a mild stimulant along with cathine.
Generally as 4cmc is a cathinone, it acts on a central nervous system as a mild stimulant, and is structurally related to amphetamines.
4-CMC chemically belongs to substituted cathinone class, where cathinones are the sub-category of amphetamines.
4-chloromethcathinone is analogue of methcathinone. It possesses the same core amphetamine structure whereas it undergoes chlorine group substitution at R4 position of the phenyl ring and a methyl group substituted at RN.
The 4-CMC is speculated for being a potent neurotoxin, because all chlorine substituted cathinones (or amphetamines) have been known to be strongly neurotoxic. But the actual toxicity data is not present as no scientific studies on this compound are conducted for evaluation.
Expected Physical effects of 4CMC
As it’s a stimulant, increased awakening, alertness and euphoria is the most significant physical effect that can be observed. It is a habit forming drug, which is quite similar to amphetamines. There are some reports that indicate the potential neurotoxic effect of this research chemical.
The effects and side effects listed below are all subjective and derived from data of personal experiences, so it may differ from one person to another.
It decreases the need for sleep, increased sociability, promotes mood lift, increased concentration and performance, increased sexuality i.e. aphrodiasic, excessive talking, increase empathy, appetite suppression, weight loss, sweating, disturbed sleep patterns, bruxism (excessive teeth grinding), mood changes, aggression, itching and visual and auditory hallucinations may likely to occur.
It may cause dehydration, increase in blood pressure, suppression of bodily functions, craving; which may lead to compulsive redosing, nausea, paranoid state, pupil dilation, headache, and confusion.
