According to a report issued by the World Health Organisation in 2016, Voodoo is a brand name for the drug Pentedrone (also known as methylamino-valerophenone), which is sold as an herbal product sprayed with other compounds, and was originally used as a sedative for large animals such as elephants and bulls. Voodoo and other synthetic cannabinoids have been rising in popularity in Egypt in recent years, especially following the 2011 uprising and the ensuing lax security environment.
