Crack Cocaine

Cocaine and Crack differ in appearance

Cocaine is generally found in white powder form, and crack is found in a rock form that is generally white, cream, tan, or light brown. Crack and cocaine also differ in the manner in which they are used. Cocaine is typically snorted, and Crack is typically smoked. When cocaine is injected or smoked, the drug takes effect more quickly, resulting in a more intense but shorter high. When cocaine is snorted, it takes longer to feel its effects but the resulting high lasts longer.

How it Works?

Crack speeds up the delivery of cocaine’s powerful chemical impact. Crack’s impact on brain means users can also experience surges in confidence and energy.

Crack is usually smoked.

Smoking the drug produces a faster, more intense high than snorting does because it reaches the bloodstream and brain more quickly. However, the effects of smoking cocaine are shorter in duration, lasting only 5 to 10 minutes verses 15 to 30 minutes for sniffing the powder.
