MDMA

Molecular structure of MDMA3,4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (also known as Ecstasy, XTC, MDMA, MD, Molly, and Mandy, among others) is a widely-used synthetic entactogenic substance of the amphetamine and phenethylamine chemical classes.

A Rough Guide to MDMA

Was originally synthesized in 1912 for its potential anti-bleeding properties but was largely forgotten about for the following 65 years. The first reports of its recreational usage did not appear until 1970. Psychedelic chemist and researcher Alexander Shulgin is credited with introducing and popularizing the use of MDMA in underground psychotherapeutic circles in the late 1970s. It became a controlled substance in 1985 when its use began to propagate out into the mainstream night-life and rave culture.Despite MDMA being illegal in most, if not all countries, its use remains widespread. In 2014, MDMA was estimated to be one of the most popular recreational drugs used in the world, alongside cocaine and cannabis. It has become associated with a number of contemporary youth and alternative subcultures.Today, researchers are investigating whether controlled doses of MDMA may be useful in psychotherapy as an aid in treating a number of psychiatric conditions such as severe, treatment-resistant posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), social anxiety in autistic adults, and anxiety in those with life-threatening illness. More research is needed, however, to determine if its potential benefits outweighs the risk of its possible harms.

Our highest priority...

Despite the fact that the U.S. government deems many hallucinogenic or psychedelics substances to be dangerous, classifying them as Schedule I drugs with “no currently accepted medical use,” various scientists have dared to study their effects.

Don’t do drugs! They’ll lead you down the path to perdition! That’s the message beaten into our heads from our earliest years. But not everybody listens, of course. Some who didn’t listen have gone on to do great things, even after using the most mind-warping drugs of all: psychedelics.Magic...
