Let’s talk about Eutylone
Eutylone, also known as bk-EBDB or n-ethylbutylone, is a stimulant in the synthetic cathinone family.
It belongs to a broader group of drugs called New Psychoactive Substances (NPS). They are also referred to as designer drugs, novel designer drugs, or bath salts.
KnowYourStuffNZ found eutylone at every event they attended during the 2019/20 festival season. At 2020/21 New Year's festivals, more than half of the samples tested by KnowYourStuffNZ were not MDMA, but instead more dangerous stimulants from the cathinones family, with eutylone the most common.
In February 2021, we issued a notification regarding dangerous amounts of eutylone found in pink 'Red Bull' tablets likely being sold as MDMA.
