Proposed chemical identity:
Some vendors are asserting that the active compound in this substance is 8α-anddrost-4-en-6-methyl-2β-17-ol. This chemical structure is totally illogical, so should be regarded as an outright lie on the part of the distributors.
An analysis of batches of NRG-1 and NRG-2 by S.D. Brandt's research group at John Moores University identified that in 13 of 14 batches tested, a range of different beta-ketones
were the active chemical. Full results of this analysis can be viewed here: Analysis of 17 RC products reveals a very concerning trend
. It is therefore possible that NRG-3 is also a marketing gimmick for distribution of a variety beta-ketones, though there is yet to be any confirmatory analysis.
Though often marketed as a legal product, if NRG-3 does contain beta-ketone
compounds its legality will vary based on local law. Concerningly, of the 17 batches of RC products (NRG-1,NRG-2,MDAI
) tested by Brandt's lab, only four were found to be legal to possess in UK, two of which contained nothing active at all, despite claims to the contrary. The legal status of NRG-3 is likely to be similarly questionable.
It is possible that multiple substances are sold under a single brand name. The information collated in this thread will therefore be an amalgamation of information on all such products. There is no guarantee that the information presented here is representative of any single batch of a product marketed under this name.
