Propylhexadrine-aka kitchen crank!
Want to know the best, easily available legal high in the United States? Well, just visit your local pharmacy, preferably a Duane Reade, CVS, Walgreen’s or Rite Aide, and walk down the decongestant aisle. Hanging from the wall, you’ll find two types of nasal inhalers, one is a Vick’s Inhaler, containing 'Levoamfetamine' (as if changing the ‘ph’ to an ‘f’ would fool anyone), and the other one is called 'Benzedrex', containing the active ingredient 250mg Propylhexadrine. Which one to choose?
Well, don’t be fooled by the “methamfetamine” in the Vick’s brand, because remember, there’s a ‘Levo’ in front of it, which means its a Peripheral Nervous System stimulant…Basically it’s like taking regular meth and getting all the physical stimulation but none of the desirable euphoria. Levomethamphetamine is Bullshit. Propylhexadrine on the other hand, IS CNS active, and therefore, releases dopamine, causing euphoria.
Plus, take a look at this:
Now this is fantastic news. For eight dollars or less you can walk into almost any major pharmacy in America and buy a stimulant almost identically to methamphetamine without even having to show an ID!However, you can simply just take the thing as directed if you want to get buzzed, as each spray releases only .25-.5mg of the active ingredient, and it takes at least 125mg to get effects (though I have always used the entire 250mg). There are a couple ways that you can take propylhexadrine.
1.Eat the Cotton:
If you are a crude, desperate tweaker, than just smash the inhaler against a hard surface, until the plastic shell breaks open and the cotton containing the propylhexadrine falls out. Then rip the cotton into several prices, buy a coke and chug that shit down. However, be warned. One of the inactive ingredients in the Benzedrex Inhaler is Lavender Oil, and it tastes like shit. I promise that if you consume Propylhexadrine in such a crude fashion, the ‘lavender burps’ will definitely rain on your parade.
2.Extract the Propylhexadrine from its freebase form and turn it into HCL:
Believe me, that sounds a lot harder to do than it actually is.
Basically, there are two ways to get this done. The first is the ‘Crack’ method, which is what I personally use, and the second one is a slightly more complicated method using hydrochloric acid, but yields actual crystals (rather than a propylhexadrine hcl acid suspension).
I personally have only tried one of these ways, but I will provide a link for a more detailed extraction process.
The “Crack Extraction”
For those of you who have injected crack before (or rather, extracted cocaine from Freebase/crack and then injected it), this should be incredibly easy, because the same exact principles are applied.
WHAT YOU NEED:
1.A Benzedrex Cotton
2.Some sort of Acid. Lemon Juice is what I prefer to use due to the taste, though Vinnegar will work, as will enough Koolaide Powder.
Take your Benzedrex cotton and cut it into five or six pieces, and throw them in a shot glass, cup, or pill container (basically, anything that can hold over 10mL of liquid).
Next, pour Lemon juice on top of the cotton. You don’t need to use an extravagant ammount, 10mL will definitely suffice, just make sure that the cotton is almost completely covered in it.
Now you wait. What’s happening is that the Propylhexadrine in the cotton is in a freebase form, which means it is not water soluble, much like crack cocaine. By adding the lemon juice (or any type of acid), you are decreasing the PH, and turning the freebase into a water soluble substance. I like to let the cotton/lemon juice mixture sit in a sealed canister (like a pill bottle) so that I can swish it around a bit. Ideally you should try and let it sit for around 1 hour (the longer the better), but I havnt noticed too much of a difference in effect between 1 hour and 24 hours.
After the hour is up, pull out the cotton pieces and wring them out over the container holding the solution. Make sure to squeeze as much liquid from them as possible, and once they are dry, discard them. Your propylhexadrine is now sitting in your container, dissolved in lemon juice. Time to consume. You can either drink this solution, or dilute it down further with more warm water and plug it.
Extraction Using Hydrochloric Acid:
For a finer extraction process, please click on this link. The only real advantage to using this method as opposed to lemon juice, is that you could plug the resulting crystals without having to put some acidic solution up your ass, or you can just put the crystals in a gelcap, and swallow them, again avoiding that disgusting lavender taste.
I would like to stress: DO NOT INJECT PROPYLHEXADRINE! Propylhexadrine causes massive Vascular Constriction, and when injected can cause immediate Brain Stem Dysfunction and death! READ MORE HERE!!!
So, what are the effects of this OTC stim? Well, first off, let me give you a little background information about myself. I have had SEVERE problems in the past with IV cocaine, starting from when I was 19 years old. In the last three years I got really strung out on speedballs, shooting coke alone, IV MPDV (as well as 4-MCC aka ‘Mephedrone’, 4-Fluoroamphetamine, 3-Fluoromethcathinone, and other IV research chemical stimulants), and then fucked up briefly this summer with a small IV Crystal Methamphetamine binge while I was on the West Coast (here in NY, Crystal is almost impossible to find or afford if your a straight man-though I’m pretty great full for that, as the drug would surely be the death of the me. It is IMO, the most euphoric high out there).
Basically, I am as much of a speed freak as I am a Junkie, the only difference is that I have completely quit shooting coke/stims as it is far more destructive for me
However, I do use Dextroamphetamine/Amphetamine (Adderall, Vyvanse, Dexadrine etc..) as its the one stimulant I do not like to inject, and it actually obliterates my cravings for IV cocaine, and helps me function normally as well (I am diagnosed ADD, if you believe in it). Problem for me, is that I am now out of a doctor, and have to buy Adderall off the street, which is ridiculously expensive in the Union Square area. So when I don’t want to travel into the city and cop pills in a highly watched over park, I’ll use Benzedrex as a replacement.
In terms of effects, Propylhexadrine is very similar to Dextroamphetamine (the active ingredient in Dexadrine, Adderall, and what Lisdexamphetamine/Vyvanse is metabolized into). The only difference is that its not quite as effective as a study aide as Adderall, as it has a more ‘party-like’ quality to it. That’s not to say that it feels like MDMA or anything, but it does have a slight ‘roll’ to the trip. Sensations feel heightened and I often get this pleasant ‘current of electricity’ feeling which kind of runs up my back. That being said, due to the vasoconstriction, its kind of 'hard to get hard' (heh) if you get my drift, so this isn’t a sex drug either. I usually either end up writing while on the stuff, or trying to engage my girlfriend in a conversation that I’ll find at the moment particularly pressing/or meaningful (though looking back, whatever I need to express is usually neither).
All in all, propylhexadrine will fix you up for a proper four hours of fun as long as you keep yourself plenty hydrated and engaged in some type of activity. Obviously, you don’t want to go out and cop illegal drugs while your on this shit, because its not going to help you feel any less paranoid that’s for sure, which is why I picked up our heroin before plugging Benzedrex this morning. Also, compared to other stimulants, including Adderall, Propylhexadrine let’s you down pretty easily, provided you don’t take some outrageous dosage, like 500mg. I always like to have some opiates or benzo’s around if I’m going to be taking a stimulant, but this one isn’t so bad that the crash couldn’t be survived without the use of CNS depressants (I’m just a hedonist).
Well, anyway, the Benzedrex is starting to wear off, and with it, my interest in continuing to write this post. I think I’ll fuck around for another 45 minutes or so and then shoot some heroin, who knows..
