  1. Carfentanil

    Carfentanil or carfentanyl is an analogue of the popular synthetic opioid analgesic fentanyl, and is one of the most potent opioids known. Carfentanil was first synthesized in 1974 by a team of chemists at Janssen Pharmaceutica which included Paul Janssen. It has a quantitative potency approximately 10,000 times that of morphine and 100 times that of fentanyl, with activity in humans starting at about 1 microgram. It is marketed under the trade name Wildnil as a general anaesthetic agent for large animals. Carfentanil is intended for large-animal use only as its extreme potency makes it inappropriate for use in humans. Currently sufentanil, approximately 10–20 times less potent than carfentanil, is the maximum strength fentanyl analog for use in humans.

  2. Charles Cohen:

    We're seeing, not just heroin, but other opioids – ranging from fentanyl to Carfentanil, Opana, and others – that are being shipped with great regularity; with the purchase happening in the dark web, the money transactions happen with a crypto-currency, and the shipment is being concealed, it makes it increasingly difficult for us to do those investigations.
