Flaka also goes by the name of ‘gravel’ because of its appearance. It looks like the colorful gravel stones found in the bottom of an aquarium.
Alpha-PVP is the compound that is used in manufacturing Flakka, Alpha-PVP is the chemical cousin of cathinone which s found in the bath salts and is similar to the amphetamine. Synthetic cathinones, more commonly known as “bath salts,” are synthetic (human-made) drugs chemically related to cathinone, a stimulant found in the khat plant.
