How are cocaine and crack made?
Cocaine is synthesized from coca leaves and was originally produced as a pain killer, but has been used by South American peoples for thousands of years. The difference between cocaine and crack cocaine:
Cocaine, or cocaine hydrochloride, is a powder that can be snorted, rubbed on the gums, or dissolved into water and injected. Cocaine is often mixed with other substances. Some common substances include sugar, corn starch, baby powder (Talcum powder), or sometimes even other drugs such as procaine and amphetamines.
Crack cocaine is the result processing cocaine hydrochloride to remove the hydrochloride, essentially purifying it. Crack rocks are heated to produce fumes which the user inhales. When cocaine is turned into a solid through this process, it becomes crack.
What does using cocaine or crack feel like?
Cocaine and crack stimulate the user’s entire body. This creates an intense but very short high and then is followed by an immediate low – depression, edginess, and a craving for more. People will give up sleep and food just to get it. Cocaine and crack users often begin to feel anxious, paranoid, hostile, angry, nauseous, panicked, etc. They may experience increased heart rate, muscle spasms, and convulsions.
