Ultimately, the following scenarios remain plausible in regards to Colabello, oral turinabol and the MLB positive drug tests: The athletes in question took oral turinabol after purchasing it online as part of a doping regiment that had worked in the past, believing the window of detection was still narrow. There could be contamination coming from dietary supplements, or their ingredients, that resulted in trace findings for the long term DHCMT metabolite in the various athlete urine samples. Finally, there is the theory that a common genetic anomaly, or another substance related to DHCMT that is present in the environment, could produce the same long-term DHCMT metabolite used for detection in trace amounts in some athletes—remote possibilities that have yet to be demonstrated.
Craze is one of the second generation pre-workout products that began to proliferate when methylhexaneamine was addressed by authorities. It was ’s New Supplement of the Year in 2012 . The Craze label says it contains Dendrobex™, a trademarked extract of dendrobium , an orchid. The label suggests that several suspicious compounds are components of Dendrobex™: N,N-Diethyl-B-Phenylethylamine and N,N-Dimethyl-B-Phenylethylamine , a CAS registered compound that is .004 mass units away from methamphetamine . Eventually, the compound present in Craze was shown to be a methamphetamine analog, N,α-diethylphenylethylamine , with no known natural presence.
