Crack Cocaine Crack: or crack cocaine is a form of cocaine. It has not been neutralized by an acid to make cocaine hydrochloride, the purist form of the chemical. Crack comes in a rock crystal form that can be heated and inhaled or smoked. It is called ‘crack’ in reference to the cracking sound it makes when it is heated. Crack cocaine is a highly addictive stimulant. Crack Cocaine – Smoking Crack I have seen many different forms of Crack pipe over the years from purchased ones, (Hippy Markets, Rock Festivals etc) to crack pipes made from tin cans. As long as you have a flame, somewhere to burn, you can inhale the Crack, you can pretty much make a Crack pipe out of anything within reason. Crack cocaine is almost always smoked or freebased. Freebasing involves heating the crack until it liquefies and inhaling the vapors through a pipe. The vapors are absorbed by the lungs, producing an immediate euphoric high. Crack is highly addictive, possibly even more than other forms of cocaine. Crack users are at risk for the usual effects of cocaine (dangerously elevated blood pressure, heart rate, and temperature, risk of seizure and cardiac arrest) as well as respiratory disorders, such as coughing, bleeding, shortness of breath, and lung trauma. Crack use can cause paranoia and aggressiveness.
