Everything you need to know about cocaine
What is cocaine?
What is crack?
Crack is the street name for a type of cocaine that has had the hydrochloride removed, making it possible to smoke.
When the mixture is heated, it makes a crackling sound, hence the name. Crack producers make crack with baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) or ammonia and water, and it is heated to remove the hydrochloride.
The crack smoker receives large doses of cocaine. The effect is intense and virtually immediate, as with injected cocaine, but the “high” lasts only around 5 minutes.
Cocaine has a very powerful stimulating effect on the nervous system. It raises levels of dopamine, a neurotransmitter linked to pleasure, movement, and the brain’s reward circuit.
Normally, neurons release dopamine in response to a pleasurable stimulus, such as the smell of good food. Once the dopamine has passed on its message, it returns inside the neuron, and the signal stops.
Cocaine is a powerfully addictive stimulant drug made from the leaves of the coca plant native to South America. Although health care providers can use it for valid medical purposes, such as local anesthesia for some surgeries, recreational cocaine use is illegal. As a street drug, cocaine looks like a fine, white, crystal powder. Street dealers often mix it with things like cornstarch, talcum powder, or flour to increase profits. They may also mix it with other drugs such as the stimulant amphetamine, or synthetic opioids, including fentanyl. Adding synthetic opioids to cocaine is especially risky when people using cocaine don’t realize it contains this dangerous additive. Increasing numbers of overdose deaths among cocaine users might be related to this tampered cocaine.

Why do people use cocaine?
This question has been ask by many people around the globe why do people do cocaine and it was ask on Quora and we had so many responds from different people and all had different reasons for doing cocaine Eg
I used it because it’s an orgasm beyond anything I ever experienced and nothing means much more than that for about 2–4 minutes, at the most. Then you just speed. Once you taste the rush, speeding isn’t usually a desired effect. Another rush is. That’s when you’re injecting it.
Smoking it, worse. The “rush” lasts longer than shooting it, but within a very few moments you’re taking another hit. As good as shooting it without the mess.
You become consumed, driven and intent on topping that last feeling. It happens quickly and once it pleases, another dose is in order. It normally continues until its gone, your dealer is closed or your out of money.
Snorting it is stimulating and numbing, head to toe if good, otherwise you’re face just feels like the dentist hit a few too many places.
You never feel as good as the first time, ever, but it drives one on to experience the ultimate high, each time you use it.
All night long you chase the first feeling you that you had that specific night. You’re brain floods with an abundance of dopamine, serotonin and norepinephrine. You never quite reach the same if it was a good one.
I’ve snorted some that was so good I wouldn’t have lived past one shot. Snorting it was not my preferred MO, it’s a dream though , to try and make your world better than the last dose.
Some people I know can get some, make some plans, have a great night and not be bothered with it again for a time. For me? Lol. All or nothing without an end in sight.
There’s no way out for most until they lose everything looking for something they’ll never find again.
But why do people use it?
It’s a status symbol. It’s a habit. It’s a means of making some people perform in a superior manner, it’s great until the addition takes over.
It’s for all the undiagnosed, untreated AD/HD adults to function in high stress positions. It’s a high, another night on the town, or an evening with self or company.
She (cocaine) is your best friend but the biggest lying nightmare you’ll ever meet. Such a love hate relationship.
Unless you’re one who has it under control, or has enough money to continue to feed the tolerance. It simply destroys most who take the lady out. Even with money the damage comes at some point.
When you get off, there’s nothing much like it. In the end, you’ve probably lost or traded everything, you want free so bad, but even though you just ruined you life and did it as good as you could, you strugge with using it the rest of your life.
It’s all down to personal preference, different people like different things.
I only smoke cannabis these days, my own homegrown, but over the years I did a lot of other things including coke, and while I can’t really advocate using, what you describe is at best mid level purity.
I can still remember the first time I had a line of high purity coke, before then it would take nearly a gram to get properly high, no no, this stuff only took a line about 1cm long by 3–4mm and I was flying, it cost a fortune compared to street quality but it was an instant, euphoric buzz like I’d never experienced before.
With drugs, quality is everything, the difference between what you find on the street from the average dealer, and the top quality stuff you have to really dig to find is massive.
The fact that cocaine has anesthetic properties is unsurprising since cocaine and lidocaine are chemical cousins, and lidocaine is used as an anesthetic during dental procedures.1 Nevertheless, it’s compelling to take a closer look at cocaine as a medical treatment.
Cocaine is a particularly effective local anesthetic that works by blocking nerve impulses. Specifically, by blocking norepinephrine uptake, cocaine causes vasoconstriction and anesthesia.
As a medical treatment, cocaine is used during procedures involving the upper respiratory tract. In addition to anesthesia and vasoconstriction of the upper respiratory tract, cocaine also shrinks the mucosa or mucous membranes.2
Cocaine used during medical procedures comes in the form of a topical solution. This cocaine hydrochloride solution comes in three different concentrations: 1%, 4%, or 10%. Because of potential toxicity, usually,
