MDMA or 3,4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine, commonly known as ecstasy, is a psychoactive drug primarily used as a recreational drug. The desired effects include altered sensations and increased energy, empathy, and pleasure.
MDMA was initially popular in the night club scene and at all-night dance parties (“raves”), but the drug now affects a broader range of people who more commonly call the drug Ecstasy or Molly.
3,4-methylenedioxy-methamphetamine (MDMA) is a synthetic drug that alters mood and perception (awareness of surrounding objects and conditions). It is chemically similar to both stimulants and hallucinogens, producing feelings of increased energy, pleasure, emotional warmth, and distorted sensory and time perception.
How do people use MDMA CYSTAL | Powder?
People who use MDMA usually take it as a capsule or tablet, though some swallow it in liquid form or snort the powder. The popular nickname Molly (slang for “molecular”) often refers to the supposedly “pure” crystalline powder form of MDMA (MDMA CRYSTAL), usually sold in capsules. Some people take MDMA in combination with other drugs such as alcohol or marijuana.
How does MDMA affect the brain?
MDMA increases the activity of three brain chemicals:
- Dopamine—produces increased energy/activity and acts in the reward system to reinforce
- Norepinephrine—increases heart rate and blood pressure, which are particularly risky for people
with heart and blood vessel problems.=
- Serotonin—affects mood, appetite, sleep, and other functions. It also triggers hormones that affect
sexual arousal and trust. The release of large amounts of serotonin likely causes the emotional
closeness, elevated mood, and empathy felt by those who use MDMA.
