    Hi All,

    I was wondering if anyone knows whether the acidity of Black Tar Heroin is enough to break down Crack Cocaine on its own,

    - OR -

    Whether you still need to add some kind of acid (i.e. Citric) to break it down while mixing with Black Tar Heroin, for the purposes of a speedball?

    Thank you

    Hi dyingtomorrow :)

    Speed balling was never my thing, but a lot of my fellow using buddies did it with redi-rock & black tar. They needed to add some citric to the crack rock in order to break it down. It would make sense that bth would already be acidic enough, but I guess it isn't.

    Off tangent & likely not necessary as crack is full of it already...if you add a slight sprinkle of baking soda to your tar, it will help preserve your veins. It won't do magic & make it clean, but it will help slightly.

    Best regards...be safe

    I would expect it is especially if you're already adding bicarb as it is which would lower the acidity but still allows it to dissolve in water.

    Frmrjunkie seems to say it isn't so I'd go with that if he's seen it before. Worth a try though right?

    I had to add lemon juice (NOT RECOMMENDED- I was a poor junkie!) when trying that combination. It works, but you get pulp in your cotton (yuck). I had no success with just the two, which is what sent me to the fridge to find something acidic.

    I found it better to get everything ready to smoke the rock, setting it nearby, and then taking the shot (if it wasn't of unknown purity which would require titrating the dose slowly, or a huge volume of liquid which might damage veins). I would try to hit the pipe before the heroin hit.

    Also, there wasn't the same 'synergy' as with a speedball, (if you can call it that), more like the two fighting it out for synaptic dominance. And I always got into trouble chasing the crack comedown with heroin and then getting more coke and then needing more heroin and then getting more coke....
