CRYPTO CHEMS research chemicals and cannabinoids started in late 2019 and refer to themselves as “No-nonsense store for high quality products with many years of experience“.
They offer a sample pack (5 products of your choice for 50 Euros, with free shipping) to allow you testing their products for little money. In fact, this is by far the best value sample pack I have ever come across.
Some of their products share a similar if not even the same fine chemical smell that you might be familiar from products by Rechemco.
crypto chem’s products are of decent quality and their prices are fair, most products cost less than 20 Euros per gram. Their blotters, however, are rather expensive compared to most other shops in Europe. For orders worth a hundred Euros or above, they offer free courier shipping.
Some of their products seem rather unique, 4-CDC and such seem to be newly designed NPS. That said, it’s usually the well-known classics that sell better, because they are usually attributed to work proper, while new substances would hardly ever receive positive reviews.
A short excursion on newly emerging NPS chemicals
It is not only changes in law, meaning that certain Research Chemicals become scheduled as illegal drugs, that make labs and vendors offer new substances. They also do this because customers might order new products out of curiosity. Some of these substances are even inactive and stay available for maybe a year or so and will not be produced a second time. They still seem to sell.
I wouldn’t say that crypto chems were selling inactive substances, but there are two shops in Europe, The Real RC and EUsynth, which notoriously keep offering inactive or at least bunk substances. The Real RC spends a lot on marketing, and is really good with not only paying forums to be presented as a reliable shop, and to make these forums silence critics, but also he seems to use countless accounts on Research Chemical forums to praise his shop. For reasons unknown, this is a well-established strategy that will always work and one day, customers will copy these fake reviews and voluntarily start writing their own positive reviews about that shop. It’s like becoming a hype, and everybody wants to participate in it, I guess.
Another thing: While certain chemicals have been constantly available for ten years already, they are not really the original substances anymore. Alone in Europe, around 50 new NPS substances are being confiscated and identified every year. In some years, they even counted more than a hundred new substances. These new substances are being sold under well-established names, but in fact, they become worse and worse, that should be obvious to everyone. Drug buyers, however, do not seem to have a problem with being lied to…
To avoid discussion about mislabeled substances, US forums, a German forum, as well as Dutch and Chinese vendors successfully directed the discussion away from product quality to calling competitors scammers.
Not so the the Polish RC Scene, which debates every single new batch their vendors start offering. They seem to be the last resort when it comes to discussing quality. The two Polish forums dopek.info and dopalamy are run by vendors and tend to delete negative reviews, but they can’t delete all of them, which makes them an interesting read usually.
Back to crypto chems: 4 out of 5 samples were pleasant chemistry
While I wouldn’t go for Euthylone a second time, the other samples were surprisingly active. They felt speedy and gave a light rush, something I had not felt in a year. Finally, a shop that does not sell boredom! This speedy feeling may of course also lead to nervousness, but all products were good to handle. Their uppers reminded me of what the former Spain vendor Scientific-Innovation would have sold, crypto chems are just a bit milder which is a good thing.
The most unusual product in my sample pack was crystalline 4F-MPH. I had never seen such before, and even though it feels less caustic and still wakes you up, I have my doubts that this is the same chemical as the 4F-MPH powder that is being sold everywhere else. It is a fine chemical though, it feels smoother than the white powder versions.

When I opened the letter, I started smiling: It was around Christmas time, and adding such a nice package (see photo above) was a really nice gesture.
Fair prices, decent quality, friendly support, free shipping option. While not all the products they stock might be worthwhile, some are really good and not as lame as with certain other vendors.
Update: March 2020
Since the WHO in December 2019 recommended the worldwide scheduling of A-PHP, labs do not produce it anymore. Since it is still a bestseller with many RC Vendors, they still restock it. But whatever they are selling now, it’s obviously a different thing. Crypto chems are offering slightly grayish powder rocks labeled A-PHP now that miss the smell and taste and also the action profile of their former batch which used to be really good.
Also, they reduced their sample pack from 5 grams to 2.5 grams without reducing the price for it.
