What is Bath Salts?

Bath salts, (not to be confused with bath salts sold by reputable pharmaceutical companies) are synthetic drugs designed to produce a high similar to meth and or cocaine.  Bath salts are marked in such a way to be sold as medicinal, external use. However, when purchased, people smoke, inhale or ingest these substances to achieve a high.  These products are quite dangerous- as the ingredients used in these substances have many undesirable side effects, and there are no long term studies to determine the long term bodily damage.

Elevated body temperatures

The worst side effect is that these chemicals cause a stark increase in one’s body temperature.  In recent reports, people have been found naked in a subconscious attempt to cool the body down. By this point, the brain itself starts to shut down and the victim enters a zombie-like state that can only be described as a dark parallel to the typical hollywood zombie. Unabated rage and disorientation begin to consume the victim, and it usually takes several well armed officers or deadly force to finally subdue the victim.

The effects from these substances are similar to the effects  of synthetic marijuana, and include nasal cavity bleeding and erosion of the esophagus and upper respiratory tract.

Bath Salts active ingredients:


The ingredients reported (no official analysis has been done on any of these products) to be / have been used in the manufacture of bathsalts, and “snuffs” :

4-methylmethcathinone/ 4MMC / Mephedrone : the ideal suspect due to the current mephedrone explosion, could be in a lot of things
4-fluoromethcathinone /4-FMC/ Flephedrone – for Charge +
3-fluoromethcathinone /3-FMC

β-CFT, WIN-35,428/ (-)-2-β-Carbomethoxy-3-β-(4-fluorophenyl)tropane : one “informed” claim as the active ingredient for Ivory wave / vanilla sky – unconfirmed to this day, expensive and complex synth —- now retracted and identifying the subste as M.D.P.V.

other possible candidates:

M.D.P.V. (cut, possibly used in quite a few products ivory wave & vanilla skies)

Desoxypipradrol / 2-diphenylmethylpiperidine (2-DPMP)


The Drug Enforcement Agency has listed methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV), a component in many of the bath salts, as a drug of concern. According to the DEA’s fact sheet, MDPV is a central nervous system stimulant that can cause effects similar to those induced by cocaine, amphetamines and ecstasy.

These effects include feelings of empathy, stimulation, alertness, euphoria and awareness of the senses. Experts also say the drug can cause increased heart rates, higher blood pressure, severe chest pains, suicidal thoughts, paranoia, delusional thinking, violent outbursts and self-mutilation.

    I don’t know a lot about the drug but I do know that it is addicting. I know some phpeloweo have stayed away for a week straight, they barely eat and you can definitely see the change in there weight. Another side effect would be bumps. Little bump randomly appear after a few uses. Some peoples itch others look like acne while others feel they r like bug bites . . Seeing effects like this in my friends just after a few days of them using it really worries me. No one knows how this drug will effect us later down the road and the fact that u can even see some physical effects while it’s being used is scary. . The real upsetting thing is the majority of people iv heard about partaking in this drug are on probation and are doing it because they can’t smoke there natural weed. . Even when you bring up the harder drugs like cocaine; that is not an everyday drug for alot of ppl because of pricing and availability. Amp is just a cheaper more available upper u can’t get put in jail for failing a piss test with yet. . I don’t want it in stores for the fact that I’m scared for my friends, there families and kids, and the next generation to come. Who knows what it could do to them
