How did the use of herbal ecstasy start?
The first herbal XTCs appeared on the market in the late 1990s when the first smart shops were opened. They started by combining different substances to develop legal alternatives to the ecstasy that became illegal in 1988.
The ingredients have changed a lot in recent years. Until April 2004, ephedrine was one of the most commonly used herbs in herbal ecstasy. It was then replaced by a number of other products, including geranamine, which has a similar effect to ephedrine. Geranamine is also no longer allowed.
Herbal ecstasy can have different effects. Some are energetic, others more trippy or calming. So be well informed about the effects, ingredients and dosages of the herbal XTCs.
Every time a substance is banned, they adjust the formula of the herbal XTCs.
