The Loop is a harm reduction organisation that aims to report on the ever changing landscape of illegal drugs in circulation and have in turn released their ’10 highest strength ecstasy pills’ from the UK’s recent summer run with some pretty surprising results!
The most surprising side of things was the potency of the 10 highest strength ecstasy pills with Yellow & White Technogym’s containing up to 330mg of the active ingredient (MDMA or MDA) which is double the dose for an average adult. Other strong pills including the Orange & White Sprites, Blue Punishers and Purple Audi’s also containing anywhere from 250mg to 300mg’s of MDMA.
Seems like politics is alive and well in the scene as well with Pink Putin’s and Orange Trumps making the list and packing a punch with up to 280mg’s of MDMA – although the later is noted to have high variability due to copies.
The Loop included some helpful messaging on their Twitter post telling people to #StartLowGoSlow and #StartWithQuarterAndSipWater which we’d stress when heading into the Australian summer and festival season.
#harmreduction is our mission, our motto & our mantra! Here are the 10 highest strength pills tested by the Loop this summer, all 200+mg MDMA. These pills, like most tested by the Loop in 2019, contain 2+ x an average adult dose of MDMA. Take care of each other💐#StartLowGoSlow pic.twitter.com/05AkpVgQOw

While this info comes directly out of the UK and their recent summer circuit, these pills could pop up in Australia so important to note but the advice remains the same, don’t do drugs but if you do, look out for your friends, seek help immediately if you feel sick, stay hydrated, take less at a time.
When possible, get your drugs tested to help you make an informed decision as shown by recent successful pill testing at Groovin’ The Moo that identified and removed potentially deadly drugs from being consumed.
The Loop also has an Australian arm of the organisation so be sure to give them a follow to stay up to date!
