4C-PVP is a powerful stimulant that is an extremely close analogue to A-PVP (also called alpha-pvp and (RS)-1-Phenyl-2-(1-pyrrolidinyl)-1-pentanone).
This is a familiar cathinone-family stimulant of the kind first developed in the 1960s. 4c-pvp is occasionally marketed as bath salts, gravel or flakka, but these names more commonly refer to the now-illegal stimulant a-pvp.
Pharmacology: The precise pharmacology of 4c-pvp is unknown, though it is believed to behave much like the better-known MDPV in the body, in that it acts as a powerful NDRI (norepinephrine/dopamine reuptake inhibitor).
- α-PVT (α-Pyrrolidinopentiothiophenone)
- α-PHP (α-Pyrrolidinohexiophenone)
- O-2482 (Naphyrone)
- O-2371 (Pyrovalerone)
4c-pvp is not currently known to be a controlled substance in any major jurisdiction, but it is a close analogue to the stimulant α-PVP, which has been outlawed in the US, Germany, the UK and much of Australia. Several of those countries may consider possession of a sufficiently analogous compound to be forbidden as well.
As a research chemical, 4c-pvp is not fit for human consumption.
It is a dangerous stimulant and should be confined to a laboratory or forensic environment at all times.
