SWIM did it a couple of time, with pure caffeine. It is SO cheap.
It burns, with 50+ mgs.
It is nice, like the effect of 2 espressos instead of one (one good espresso contains like 50mg of caffeine, in italy at least). The effects are short-lasting than orally.
But there is a reason if the bag is still there, still full.
It's not worth to stress the nose for this.
I think that the price goes hand in hand with the level of purity of the caffeine. I know for a fact, that some mix it up with dextrose that will spike bloodsugarlevels instantly and create a false boost. Of course, caffeine is not as profitable a drug as cocaine (nor is it illegal) but that doesn't seem to prevent people from mixing it up with dextrose and expanding the quantity.
I would say that you can get a really decent high with 100% pure caffeine powder.
SWIM doesn't get much from snorting caffiene really, he feels a bit more awake maybe a little jittery from doses of 500mg-1500mg. SWIM thinks maybe the oral BA is much higher than snorted, so snorted is pointless unless SWIY wants to replace snorting "coke" or "speed" with something for the placebo rack 'n' sniff effect.
SWIM is amazed that SWITony Williams only felt slightly jittery from 1500mg. SWIM insufflated a gram and thought he was going to die, and this from someSWIM who used to be able to bomb 2 grams of speed paste! His most enjoyable experience snorting pure caffeine powder was the first time and lowest dose he used. Then again SWIM has had problems for a long time with anxiety and psychosis, so maybe that's part of the explanation. Still, SWIM would seriously not recommend doing this much at one time, particularly if you have no tolerance with regard to this method of taking caffeine.
Just because a lot of illegal and semi-legal stims have more euphoria, it certainly doesn't mean that caffeine, in pure form, is a very powerful stimulant, which can lead to overdose. Remember the girl who was hospitalized after drinking 8 espressos in a day?
This is my Monkey, typing (and incriminating) on my behalf
"i was trying to find something about this since i have been up all night studying on adderall, and ran out, but i just snorted a little of the powder inside of a stacker 3 (dont hate) because i have class in 2 hours and taking pills orally has never been my thing, anyways, after the 2 minutes of crazy burning (the worst i have ever felt) it went away and i am feeling pretty up. i did a realy small line, like probably 1/10 of what was in the capsule. but its making me feel pretty good. haha it does sound pretty stupid tho, but w/e to each his own."
I just snorted a pro-plus 3 minutes ago, decided to look it up after-wards. Its not bad, slight head buzz, and my nose is desensitized to pain at this point, so its all pretty positive. Placebo or not, its all relative to me.
I've got some pure caffeine powder, just wondering whats the best way to take it, ive been snorting it, with a extremly minor effect, alot of people have told be snorting is the best way, and im pretty sure it is, maybe im just not taking enough, how much should i take for a nice buzz, thanks
If a pet gnome of yours is looking to abuse caffiene for the jittery, tense, uncomfortable effects a high dose of it causes then just mix it with some water and drink it if it doesn't absorb well via insufflation.
SWIM has snorted caffeine to get a boost, he has mixed it with amphetamine and it really got SWIM going. This was years ago and SWIM sticks to opiates now but snorting caffeine is 100% viable way to get energy. (Just break apart a caffeine pill SWIM said)
SWIM recently worked through 20g of pure caffeine powder. Tried insuffulating it, was fun and interesting at first - but makes his nose rather dry inside, rather unpleasant. First few times there was a brief buzz, followed by total alertness for a while, but nothing special. Ended up just taking orally - longer lasting & no pain in the nose. Don't bother taking it up the nose - it's not really that great.
Can confirm just started snorting caffeine about 2-3 days ago only drugs i did before was Weed , it gives you a real good rush with a small amount i only took in about 100mg's burns slightly but i took it little by little , like a comment said get a rush temporarily and the crash is like the twin towers.
SWIM snorts caffeine everyday in the morning, to wake him up. It seems to work, but he would say that it is not a very efficient method of administration. Caffeine is not very soluble in water, and a lot of caffeine is wasted when insufflated.
Correct me if I'm wrong please, but I think this means Caffeine is 9! times less soluble in water than Cocaine(aka you have two jugs: one for caffeine, one for cocaine. There is 9times more water to dissolve same amounts of caffeine in one jug and 1/9 in another jug to dissolve the same amount of cocaine)
I think this proves that Snorting Caffeine is 9times more pointless than snorting cocaine: You better just crash the pill and put the powder under your tongue, it will be bitter for 30sec and and you will feel a nice buzz in about 5min. Snorting caffeine not only a huge waste but will also make your nose stuffed shut.
Well no one of you guys exactly answered his question. Yes you can snort caffeine if its 100% pure yes it gives you a sort of rush/high. Its right that it just globs up if it gets any kind of liquid on it (aka your mucus) so you cant absorb it all and it clogs your nose up. But the question also mentions hydrochloric acid which if added would, in theory, make it into a salt and be more "dissolvable", making much easier to snort and gets you higher. But i dont think there are any records on the internet of this (that i can find) anyone care to share if that should or does work?

Also sorry to bring this thread back from the dead, im just curious if that theory works. I've been experimenting with caffeine a lot lately.

Why snorting caffeine?
1-Fast hitting than taken orally
2-No stomach disconfort
3-Shorter duration effect
5-More convenient to transport (you can put it in a small zip lock bag in your pocket instead of transporting a bottle of coffee or tea,or a portion of guarana powder or even more convenient than transporting a portion of pure caffeine to take orally which requires a bigger dose to feel the effects)
I snort caffeine pills all the time, gets into you much quicker than swallowing it and despite the negative speculation on here it does definitely make you feel better, not in an amphetamine or cocaine way but it takes the edge off a sleepless night I also blend it with 4MMC which augments the effects slightly but more importantly takes away the horrendous burning and eye watering. I don't do 4MMC any other way now. You do need to do slightly bigger lines to compensate
its weak, burns a bit, and gets you 'up' for about 30 mins, then you crash like the airplanes into the world trade center.
That's a pretty explicit description but it's actually accurate.
After reading the post I tried it, I don't know why, I guess I was just curious.
It does get you up for like 20 min - 30 min and then it just goes down, maybe not like an airplane against the towers but you do feel an impact.
I wouldn't recommend it, it's nothing special, just another novelty.
I snorted 100 mg of vivarin last night and I felt a very minor body high. I only did this because of an old habit that was bothering me mentally and I'll never do that shit again. The headache that came after was totally not worth it, felt kinda like a panic attack and could not sleep even with 3 Advil pm.
I remember once snorting 500mg caffeine with no caffeine habbit. That means I supposedly had no tolerance to caffeine, or at least not from using caffeine I had clear stimulation for 2-3h, kinda reminded me mild amphetamine buzz. It was very clear. And the comedown was ... like with a strong amphetamine buzz. I had no mood whatsoever, yet too stimulated to fall asleep. It totally went away with booze though. Now I'm only using caffeine in 50-100mg bumps on top of oral caffeine consumption to feel anything at all (still not having a regular caffeine habbit, but I am very tolerant to stimulants in general, right now being under a gram (600mg+400mg) of caffeine and barely feeling any stimulation, rather sleepy), snorting a little bump on top of the pills on the other hand helps me get that little buzz from caffeine people are supposed to get.
