    Any kind of smokable drug(except meth as far as i know)can be smoked by this method: placing it on a peice of tinfoil, heating it from belowwith your lighter then inhaling the smoke through some type of straw. I agree with CK that using a pipe is better for smoking rock/base oranything elseIMO.


    And they were smoking freebase cocaine/crack

    neither.. really.. smoking crack will last 5-10 minutes and will make u want more straight after. smoking cocaine hcl has no effect if it does its very little hence why freebase cocaine is made or crack is used instead.

    SWIM smokes sometimes on foil, sometimes puts coke in his joint.

    Maybe.

    How much of a difference would there be? Surely both are inhaled then absorbed into the lungs similarly? I was under the impression that people smoke freebase because it vapourises at a lower temperature than Cocaine HCl.

    SWIM knows a couple of people who smoke cocaine hydrochloride by licking a thin strip down the side of a fag and sprinkle the cola on it so it sticks, then puff away, they say it is more intense. However, SWIM doesn't smoke as so has never tried. Could all just be a placebo effect though.

    Believe it or not SWIM says smoking cola off of foil gets him way higher than crack out of a pipe. The crack is ok, but it makes him want more with barely any 'high'... smoking on foil makes SWIM want more too but he gets really high when he does it. And there was one time when SWIM didn't have any baking soda to mix on his foil, so he just put a little bit of cola and water and mixed it. He said it was SO harsh on his throat he just threw it away with like 2 hits left :(

    Smoking it wrong?

    Hello all, nice to meet ya.

    Ok so Swim usually only smokes weed and very occasionally snorts coke. Last time swim wanted to buy coke the dealer only had crack. So swim thought what the hell, might as well. So swim got home and tried it and all it did was give swim a headache. Like a fullness/tightness in the head. Swim injected it twice, with success, and felt the familiar happy rush of coke. Is swim trying to smoke it wrong? First swim was burning it like weed, then swim switched to just holding the flame above it and melting it and inhaling the fumes......neither worked.

    Swim only has a weed pipe and doesn't understand how smoking it with foil works. Swim also hates the taste so swim wont be buying crack again, only coke. But swim doesn't want to waste it....

    So what is the best way to do it with what swim has available? Step by step would be great. And how much is swim supposed to smoke at a time? Swim has only been smoking the size of equivalent to one line at a time...not enough? Feel shitty, no euphoria at all. But when swim injected it those two times, it felt good. But swim doesn't want to inject, only smoke....please help!

    Thank you so much swim really appreciates it!

    SWIM puts the crack onto tin foil, then heats beneath using the lowest flame on the lighter and uses a tube to inhale. The result is a very numb throat and intense stimulation.

    Ok so the flame never touches the crack right.....

    shouldn't it have worked when swim just melted it down in the weed pipe? and inhaled?

    Does SWIY shape the tin foil any specific way? Thank you!

    Re: Smoking it wrong?

    If SWIY is very experienced with Cannabis, then I'm sure SWIY is familiar with vaporizing--or smoking from a "Vape." The one thing SWIY needs to keep in mind whilst smoking rock is that SWIY is vaporizing the cocaine by the exact same governing principle SWIY uses to "vape" reefer. That is, heat is applied indirectly to the crack by applying flame to some medium, which in turn heats the crack until it reaches its vaporizing temperature. When SWIY tried applying the flame directly to the rock in a cannabis pipe, she did not get high because cocaine will immediately combust when brought into contact with fire.

    Thus, SWIY needs some tool that will effectively absorb the heat from the flame and then vaporize her rock properly. She has several options. Of course, if she has a crack pipe handy, this would work beautifully, but I assume she doesn't if she is asking these questins. If SWIY has a cannabis vaporizer handy, or knows how to make a lightbulb vaporizer (easy tutorials are available with a simple google search), then these will certainly work, and are a sure way to inhale the vapor efficiently. However, many choose not to smoke their crack with their cannabis vapes because it permanately dirties the light bulb (or whatever other medium SWIY is using) and makes it impossible to clean. So, one last option, which our other friend has already explained, is smoking it off of tin-foil.

    Here's SWIM's advice on this tried-and-true "rush job" method:

    Since the tin foil is flimsier than other mediums, it is crucial that SWIY holds the flame a good inch or so away from the foil as she smokes to ensure that she doesn't burn the cocaine. Also, to answer her question about how to fold the tin-foil, SWIM finds it best to just crease the foil on the sides to make a small "boat." Then, SWIM takes his tin-foil boat and holds it vertically. This detail is crucial--holding the boat vertically will ensure that the vapor from the rock will rise to the user's face. He lays the rock at the bottom of the boat, resting against one of the creased sides, and holds the other end of the boat up to his mouth. Now it is time to carefully apply the flame. Holding the lighter a few inches away from the foil, move the tip of the flame in a continual motion across the area of the foil directly underneath the rock. The continual movement of the flame will ensure that no one spot on the foil will get too hot, and that the entire rock is being heated evenly. If SWIY is holding it vertically, and the flame is applied correctly, the smoke should rise up to her waiting lips. Done in this fashion, no straw or "tooter" should be necessary to inhale the vapor--just pearse the lips and slowly inhale. If SWIY inhales too hard, she'll run out of room in her lungs and miss a lot of that precious vapor. That's about it, there's really nothing to it. SWIY will know if she's doing it right.

    Re: Smoking it wrong?

    That's right, the flame should never directly touch the crack. The idea is to vapourise it with heat. A weed pipe isn't really suitable because it's intended for burning stuff, not vaporising and the vapours may condense before they get to the end of the mouthpiece.

    I happened to notice something in my step-sister's closet:

    several rectangular (3"x4") tin-foil cut-outs with a few lighters on the floor. What are the possibilities here?

    Please respond with useful information..Thanks!

    Monkey uses this method only when speedballing. He will make a foil "fold" to smoke from, mix the coke with a bit of baking soda and water (not much, just enough), and then he mixes in his heroin, so it becomes a combination of dragon-chasing and smoking pseudo-crack. Fun but very cost inefficent, so he usually just snorts his speedballs, or snorts the heroin and starts smoking rock when he feels the effects of the dope.
    Now many swimmers may chastise him and inquire as to why he doesn't "just get over it", and use a spike. Well, he has many reasons, chiefly his health, as although smoking things isn't exactly good for a person, it's a lot better than injecting oneself. He's always been super-paranoid about "junkie diseases" and doesn't want any of them, especially now that he has finally gotten together with the longtime woman of his dreams. He could never forgive himself if he gave her some sort of disease.

    If someone ran out of baking soda and only has "baking powder", can one base with this???? it has sodium bicarbonate or w/e, just has a couple extra non toxic things in it.

    SWIM has had fairly good success and a pretty good high somewhat like crack through the pipe in the following manner....SWIM wld mix a crtain small amnt of cocaine with jst enough baking soda to mix in with it to create the desired product which smokes interestingly amd creates a nice high nuthin too crazy but better than snorting to SWIm.

    it seems like and taste like crack and takes sum lrning to smoke lol here is a pic of the product SWIM made and smoked and the 3colors SWIY wld see while smoking
