In the ever-evolving and dangerous world of research chemicals it seems a new potent synthetic blend hits the market everyday. The latest opioid analog to hit the streets is the lethal U-47700 which chemists believe is about 7.5x more potent than morphine and readily available due to its unclassified schedule status by the DEA. However that looks like it is about to change soon seeing as the opioid crisis is at an all time high in America and across the world.
U-47700 originates from the benzamide chemical class of opioid derivatives and is a relative newcomer onto the drug scene. The chemical was first developed by researchers at Upjohn pharmaceuticals in the early 1970s. It was part of a number of chemicals the researchers had synthesized and later created patents for and ultimately decided that U-47700 was the most structurally active and effective of the bunch. The drug is now widely available online from websites that specialize in the sale of budding research chemicals.
U-47700 works by activating and binding to the opioid receptors in the brain which then give the signal to release endorphins. These endorphins are what cause the pleasant sensations and feelings of wellbeing when on the drug. The human body creates its own endorphins naturally but when outside sources like drugs are used to facilitate this process it leads to the body shutting down its own production. This can lead to intense feelings of hopelessness, depression and even suicide. Some of the side-effects from opioid potentiating drugs like U-47700 are as follows:
- Respiratory Sedation
- Decreased Libido
- Cough Suppression
- Dilated Pupils
Overdose Rate Climbing
The list of side-effects is extensive and not worth experimenting with in the long-run. The risk of more serious and adverse health complications rises significantly when pairing U-47700 with other drugs like benzodiazepines and alcohol. Overdose from the drug is steadily rising across the United States with several victims who were thought to have traces of the drug in their system. Reports have surfaced that the untimely passing of musical artist Prince may have had a connection to U-47700. It was initially believed that the painkiller Fentanyl was responsible for his tragic death, but later investigation concluded that trace amounts of U-47700 was present as well.
The bottom line is that whenever you experiment with research chemicals like U-47700 you are essentially playing russian roulette with your life. In today’s drug climate you can never truly be sure what exactly it is you are consuming. Not to mention the extremely addictive and potent nature of these new super drugs being manufactured illicitly at staggering rates across the world. The majority of these drugs come from China which is notorious for its unethical production chain. The best decision you can make is to avoid these products at all costs. If you happen to be addicted to one of these drugs do yourself a favor and check into a detox facility immediately and get help from a professional. It is never too late to reclaim your life and empower yourself by checking into a qualified rehab institution.
