Freebase

  1. para-Methoxyamphetamine

    para-Methoxyamphetamine, also known as 4-methoxyamphetamine, is a serotonergic drug of the amphetamine class. Unlike other similar drugs of this family, PMA does not produce stimulant, euphoriant, or entactogen effects, and behaves more like an antidepressant in comparison, though it does have some psychedelic properties. PMA has been occasionally found in tablets labeled as MDMA, although its effects are markedly different compared to those of MDMA. PMA is commonly synthesized from anethole, the flavor compound of anise and fennel, mainly because the starting material for MDMA, safrole, has become less available due to law enforcement action, causing illicit drug manufacturers to use anethole as an alternative. Once thought to be a human invention, recent research suggests PMA occurs as a trace alkaloid in plants including certain Acacia species and Browningia candelaris. The presence of PMA in pills and powders cannot be reliably detected using home pill testing kits.
