alpha-Pyrrolidinohexiophenone (also known as PV-7, alpha-PHP, A-PHP, and α-PHP) is a lesser-known novel stimulant substance of the cathinone class. It is structurally related to MDPV and is one of the successors to the designer drug cathinone analog α-PVP.
It is being used and marketed as a replacement for α-PVP (known on the street as flakka) a few years following its ban, where it has come to substitute α-PVP in many parts of the world. While initially mass synthesized in Chinese industrial laboratories, a ban on α-PHP within China’s borders has forced production to nations worldwide.
It generally comes in the form of either a fine powder or crystallized shards that can produce powerful but short-lived
euphoric stimulant effects comparable to those of vaporized methamphetamine and cocaine.
Like its cathinone predecessors, it is has gained notoriety for its tendency to induce compulsive redosing and
addictive behaviors as well the ability to produce delusional states and psychosis when abused.
Very little data exists about the pharmacological properties, metabolism, and toxicity of α-PHP. It has recently become commonly marketed alongside research chemical stimulants like NEP and Hexen as a legal, grey-market alternative to a-PVP, and commercially distributed through online research chemical vendors.
It is highly advised to use harm reduction practices if using this substance.
Buy a-PHP Powder ?-Pyrrolidinohexiophenone (a-PHP, alpha-PHP, a-Pyrrolidinohexanophenone, PV-7) is a
synthetic stimulant drug of the cathinone class developed in the 1960s which has been reported as a novel designer
drug. a-PHP is a substituted cathinone and a derivative of pyrovalerone. a-PHP shares many of the same chemical
properties like Pyrovalerone and MDPV and is currently enjoying just as much attention from the global research community.

a-Pyrrolidinohexiophenone is a longer chain homologue of ?-PVP, having an extra carbon on the alkyl side chain.
Regarding the potency of alpha-PHP in the brain, chemist Michael H. Baumann of the Designer Drug Research Unit
(established by Baumann) of the National Institute on Drug Abuse stated: alpha-PHP might be even more potent
than alpha-PVP; this statement is based on laboratory tests of chemical reactivity.
Pyrovalerone is a structural isomer of alpha-PHP
In the United States, ?-PHP is a Schedule I Controlled Substance.
The President of the Republic of Italy classified cathinone and all structurally derived analogues (including pyrovalerone analogues) as narcotics on January 2012.
Swedens public health agency suggested to classify ?-PHP as narcotic on June 1, 2015.
As of October 2015, ?-PHP is a controlled substance in China
