Monkey dust (Cathinones)

“Monkey Dust” is a slang term that has been used to refer to different synthetic cathinones, such as MDPV (methylenedioxypyrovalerone) or Alpha-PVP (alpha-pyrrolidinopentiophenone). These substances belong to a class of drugs known as “bath salts” or “legal highs.”

Synthetic cathinones are stimulant drugs that are chemically similar to amphetamines and produce stimulating and hallucinogenic effects. They are often sold as a white powder or crystalline substance and can be ingested, inhaled, or injected.

The term “Monkey Dust” gained attention in the media due to reports of individuals exhibiting severe and erratic behaviour, often associated with paranoia, aggression, and hallucinations, after using these substances. It is important to note that the term “Monkey Dust” may be used to refer to different substances in different regions, and its composition and effects can vary.

The use of synthetic cathinones, including “Monkey Dust,” can be highly dangerous and carries significant risks. These substances can have serious physical and mental health consequences, including cardiovascular problems, psychosis, and even death. Adulterants and inconsistent purity of these substances further increase the risks and potential harms.

It is essential to prioritise your health and safety and to avoid using substances without a prescription or under the guidance of a healthcare professional. If you or someone you know is struggling with substance use or addiction, I strongly recommend seeking help from a healthcare professional, addiction specialist, or a local support service. They can provide appropriate guidance, support, and treatment options tailored to the specific needs of the individual.
