MDMA Adulterants

MDMA Adulterants

MDMA is often cut with other substances, using a test kit is always a good idea. Test kits are the best way to identify pure MDMA but if one isn’t readily available you can recognize MDMA as being a crystalline powder that glimmers with a colour scale that varies from white to dark brown. Visuals are not a great indicator of what you are getting though. Pressed pills could have anything in them so they should always be tested.
