Cathinone, the main psychoactive alkaloid from the khat plant (C. edulis), is a potent central stimulant and a naturally occurring analog of amphetamine. DL-Cathinone is a racemic mixture of (−)-(S)-cathinone (Item No. 13869) and its less potent (+)-isomer.1 Like amphetamine, DL-cathinone and (−)-(S)-cathinone are potent releasers of norepinephrine and dopamine.2,3,4 With an ED50 value of 0.24 mg/kg, DL-cathinone produces amphetamine-like effects on the operant behavior of rats trained to discriminate 0.2-0.8 mg/kg of (D)-amphetamine.4 This product is intended for research and forensic applications.
