man on benzo fury

Drugs come in all shapes and sizes. They appear in different forms and can be taken in various ways.

Especially with the continual development of synthetic drugs, people are always finding new drugs to abuse and new highs to chase. One of these newer drugs that have been rising in popularity is benzo fury.

What Is Benzo Fury?

Benzo fury or benzofuran is a type of synthetic designer drug that typically contains 5-APB or 6-APB and has psychoactive effects. It is typically sold and ingested as a pill. It gained popularity in the United Kingdom before being officially banned and has now spread to the United States. While it is still legal on a national level, several states have banned benzo fury’s sale and distribution. This drug is typically abused in night clubs or at raves for the benzo fury high that is similar to ecstasy and amphetamine.

Benzo Fury Effects

While you can sometimes buy this drug online, benzo fury is far from harmless. Many people choose to use benzo fury in party environments and believe it to be nothing more than a way to have a good time. In reality, when abused, benzo fury can have many negative side effects. Also, because these drugs are man-made, their chemical makeups can vary drastically from one manufacturer to another, and they may be laced with other harmful chemicals.

While benzo fury is typically associated with euphoria and increased energy levels, some other possible benzo fury effects include:

  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Jaw clenching
  • Irritation
  • Hyperthermia
  • Mental confusion
  • Sleep problems
  • Overstimulation
  • Hallucinations
  • Delirium
  • Paranoia
  • Hospitalization for psychosis

With frequent use or in high doses, benzo fury also carries with it the risk of long-term health problems. These health problems may extend to jaw problems, cardiovascular problems, liver damage, memory impairment, cognitive issues, stroke, and even overdose.

There is also some research to support that benzo fury can be addictive, with many users bingeing on this drug to avoid withdrawal and crashing. Users will become dependent on the false high it creates and do everything in their power to get this high back. Just like with other substance abuse problems, these addicts can begin to experience secondary issues related to their addiction like problems at home or work. Because it can be hard to quit on their own, an intensive outpatient program may be necessary.
