Crack cocaine, also known simply as crack, is a free base form of cocaine that can be smoked. Crack cocaine is commonly used as a recreational drug, but it is dangerously addictive. Crack cocaine as sold on the streets may be adulterated or “cut” with other substances mimicking the appearance of crack cocaine to increase bulk. Use of toxic adulterants such as levamisole has been documented. Even cases of Crack Cocaine laced with Carfentanil have been reported. Effects of crack cocaine include euphoria, supreme confidence, loss of appetite, insomnia, alertness, increased energy, a craving for more cocaine, and potential paranoia (ending after use).
Its initial effect is to release a large amount of dopamine, a brain chemical inducing feeling of euphoria. The high usually lasts from 5–10 minutes, after which time dopamine levels in the brain plummet, leaving the user feeling depressed and low. This is when the user just wants to keep on using to ovoid the feeling of depression and guilt. Smoking crack further presents a series of health risks. Crack is often mixed with other substances that create toxic fumes when burned. As crack smoke does not remain potent for long, crack pipes are generally very short. This often causes cracked and blistered lips, known as “crack lip,” from users having a very hot pipe pressed against their lips.
Crack Addiction is very serious disease. Please get your loved one help right away. Call Holly Conklin at 1-800-430-2995.
