3-Methylmethcathinone (also known as 3-MMC or metaphedrone) is a novel stimulant-entactogen substance of the cathinone class. It is a structural analog of mephedrone (4-MMC). It is thought to produce its effects by promoting the release of dopamine and serotonin, although studies are lacking.
3-MMC first became available on the online research chemical market shortly after the banning of mephedrone. It is a prominent example of a contemporary designer drug specifically chosen to mimic and/or replace the functional and structural features of its recently-controlled predecessors.
Subjective effects include stimulation, anxiety suppression, disinhibition, enhanced empathy and sociability, relaxation, increased libido, and euphoria. 3-MMC's effects are reported to be similar to those of mephedrone, which is sometimes described as a hybrid of MDMA and cocaine. However, 3-MMC is described as being slightly less entactogenic and more stimulating, and some report more side effects. Like mephedrone and cocaine, it is associated with compulsive redosing and abuse.
Limited data exists about the pharmacological properties, metabolism, and toxicity of 3-MMC, and it has little history of human use. Preliminary evidence suggests it may possess neurotoxic and cardiotoxic properties. It is highly advised to use harm reduction practices if using this substance.
A euphoric stimulant similar to mephedrone but said to lack much of the "magic." Never gained the same popularity. Slightly less potent.
A group of substances with mainly euphoric effects such as: 3-cmc, 4-cmc, 3-mmc, 4-mmc, 4-cec.
