1,4-BD, 1,4-butanediol, 1,4-butylene glycol, 1,4-dihydroxybutane, 1,4-tetramethylene glycol, 2(3H)-Furanone di-dihydro, BD, BDO, Butane-1,4-diol, Butanodiol, Butylèneglycol, Butylene Glycol, Butylène Glycol, Glycol Butylique, Tetramethylene Glycol, Tetramethylene-1,4-diol.

Butanediol is a chemical that is used to make floor stripper, paint thinner, and other solvent products. It's illegal to sell butanediol for use as medicine. Nevertheless, butanediol is sometimes used as a substitute for other illegal substances such as gamma butyrolactone (GBL) and gamma hydroxybutyrate (GHB). Unfortunately, butanediol is just as dangerous as GBL and GHB.

Butanediol has been used to stimulate growth hormone production and muscle growth; and for bodybuilding, weight loss, and trouble sleeping (insomnia).

How does it work?

Butanediol is converted to gamma hydroxybutyrate (GHB) in the body. GHB slows down the brain, which can cause loss of consciousness along with dangerous slowing of breathing and other vital functions. It also stimulates growth hormone secretion.


  • Stimulating growth hormone production and muscle growth.

  • Bodybuilding.

  • Weight loss.

  • Trouble sleeping (insomnia).

  • Other conditions.

More evidence is needed to rate the effectiveness of butanediol for these uses.


Butanediol is UNSAFE when taken by mouth. It has caused serious illness and more than 100 deaths.

Some side effects of butanediol are serious breathing problems, coma, amnesia, combativeness, confusion, agitation, vomiting, seizures, and very slow heartbeat. People who use butanediol on a regular basis and then stop may experience withdrawal symptoms such as sleep problems (insomnia), tremor, and anxiety.
