That is a question that I get asked all the time by people who are reading up on the steroid Dianabol (also known as methandrostenolone) before making their purchase.
The legal status of Dianabol steroid in the US is confusing, with misinformation spread online by uneducated distributors trying to sell it illegally. So let’s set the record straight once and for all.
Dianabol is not legal without a valid prescription in America for human use, but it is permitted to buy, own or possess if you have a license to do so. This means that buying Dbol pills online from Europe or Mexico would be illegal under federal law. But since your local gym dealer isn’t likely to know this detail, you can quickly get away with it.
A quick background on its history…
Dianabol is the second anabolic steroid ever created, initially synthesized in Germany in the early 1950s by Ciba Specialty Chemicals. Its inventor Jacobo (also spelled Jacqueline) Spiegelman dubbed it “Anabol,” which was then shortened into “Dbol.” The drug was first presented to the American Medical Association convention in New Orleans. By 1954, D-bol had become available for prescription use in the US, marketed under brand names such as Dianabol and Anabol, among others.
The substance has been used consistently by bodybuilders since 1960, when Dan Duchaine brought out his Underground Steroid handbook. You’ll know that Dianabol is one of the most popular bulking steroids on the market today, even more so than super powerful compounds like trenbolone.
Dianabol is a Schedule III controlled substance in the United States, putting it in the same category as anabolic steroids like Anavar and Winstrol. The only difference between these drugs and pharmacy-grade testosterone or Deca Durabolin is that they are not for human use – except, of course, if you have a valid prescription to buy them. But this does not apply to Dbol because it’s not orally active enough to qualify as a performance enhancer for humans at average therapeutic doses, making buying it online legal provided you have a license for its purchase.
This means that if you are caught with Dbol in America without a license, whether it was bought online or smuggled into the country, you would be arrested and prosecuted under federal law. The only way to get around this is to present your doctor’s prescription when approached by a law officer.
However, since Dianabol use doesn’t have any severe side effects in healthy men, getting caught with it would likely result in only being charged for possession of a scheduled substance. But if police suspected you were using it for performance enhancement, you could face stiffer penalties, including fines and jail time.
The same applies if you are caught with Dianabol steroids in Canada or Mexico. You can buy legally on the internet from these countries, but the purchase would be considered illegal once you bring it into either of these countries without a doctor’s prescription.
Furthermore, since Dianabol is metabolized by the liver, using it under a doctor’s supervision for extended periods over three to six months can result in elevated liver enzymes and possibly down the road permanent damage to this vital organ. So if you decided to buy Dbol online without a prescription or were tempted to make an illegal purchase overseas or across the Mexican border, common sense should prevail.
As far as I know, there are no legal loopholes that allow you to purchase Dianabol steroids for sale as performance enhancers, even with a doctor’s prescription. However, just like all scheduled substances, there are legitimate medical uses of steroids like Dbol; it’s not only for muscle builders.
You see, Dianabol is primarily used to rehabilitate muscle, bone, and joint injuries and treat diseases such as AIDS and cancer because it increases appetite and helps the body recover from stressful illnesses. But since these uses are legal only with a prescription, getting hold of Dbol for sale would be illegal under any circumstances. And those caught buying or selling without a license face arrest and prosecution.
