Clonazolam (also referred to as Clonitrazolam) is a novel research chemical of the benzodiazepine chemical class that has been available in recent years as a research chemical. This particular compound is a derivative of the more widely known and FDA approved Clonazepam (Klonopin) and Alprazolam (Xanax). Researchers have found it to be a highly potent benzodiazepine. It is widely known for its strong sedating, muscle relaxant and amnesic effects. It is suggested that it is roughly around 2.5x more potent than that of Alprazolam.
The first known synthesis of Clonazolam was discovered and reported back in 1971. Its test results shown that out of all the benzodiazipines available and under test, it was the most active compound out of all the other benzos tested during that time.
Researchers have found Clonazolam to be highly potent in comparison to other novel benzodiazipines. Research findings have shown it to produce strong sedating properties from as little as 0.5 milligrams.
