Ethyl-J, EBDB or 3,4-methylenedioxy-alpha,N-diethyl-phenethylamine, is a lesser-known psychedelic drug. It is the N-ethyl analog of BDB (J), and also the alpha-ethyl analogue of MDEA. Ethyl-J was first synthesized by Alexander Shulgin. In his book PIHKAL (Phenethylamines I Have Known and Loved), the minimum dosage consumed was 90 mg, and the duration is unknown. Ethyl-J produced few to no effects at the dosage range tested in PIHKAL, but at higher doses of several hundred milligrams it produces euphoric effects similar to those of MBDB (methyl-J) although milder and shorter lasting. Very little data exists about the pharmacological properties, metabolism, and toxicity of Ethyl-J.
