What is Cocaine?
Cocaine is an illegal stimulant drug made from the leaves of coca plants. It can be easily ingested and will provide users with a feeling that’s similar to being high in their momentary state, but it lasts much shorter than some other drugs such as Alcohol or Marijuana.
The drug sends high levels of dopamine, a natural chemical messenger in your body that helps to regulate mood and make you feel happy. When this neurotransmitter is released into the parts of our brain where pleasure comes from (such as sex or money), we get an intense feeling called “high.”
Cocaine disrupts neural communication within one’s brain, which causes more harm over time if used regularly; this also means there are side effects associated with long term use including:
- Extreme sensitivity to touch, sound, and sight
- Intense happiness
- Decreased appetite
More serious side effects include:
- Heart disease, heart attack, and stroke
- Lung damage
- Convulsions and seizures
- Mood problems
- HIV or hepatitis if you inject it
