Ecstasy vs Molly

Ecstasy and Molly are bothan MDMA. They are just different forms of MDMA. One is in a very pure form called Molly, and the other is usually mixed with adulterants to give it a pill shape called Ecstasy.

“MDMA” stands for “3, 4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine.” MDMA is commonly called Ecstasy or Molly. MDMAs are basically entactogenic drugs, which means they belong to the psychoactive drug class. MDMAs specifically belong to the amphetamine and phenethylamine class of drugs. MDMAs are considered to induce euphoria, diminish anxiety, create a false sense of intimacy with others, and are used in cognitive and psychological therapies. They have therapeutic benefits. Many researchers are also testing them for PTSD or post-traumatic stress disorder. They are also used for lessening the stress experienced by terminal cancer patients.

They are criminalized in countries under a U.N., United Nations, agreement. Its manufacture, possession, and sales are prosecuted as a crime except for some licensed manufacturing, selling, and usage for research and medical purposes.

It is believed that it is pure white in color as it is the pure form of MDMA and no adulterants are added to it. It is difficult to bind MDMAs thus they cannot be bound in pill form if they’re pure. Molly is always in either powder form or in gel caps. These gel caps contain usually 100-150mg of Molly which is considered one dose. Adulteration can be easily detected in Molly as it should be white and no other stain of color to it. Those who have tasted Molly say that it is better experience wise than Ecstasy.

Ecstasy is also called “E,” “X,” “XTC.” Ecstasy is the street pill name given to MDMA.
