Crank is the slang work for a lower quality of crystal meth. Crank often comes in a powder form and can be snorted, smoked, injected or eaten. It is lower purity because it is made in trailer labs or off beat labs. It is extremely dangerous, not only because of its addictiveness but also because random kitchen items are often mixed in when making it to increase the volume.
Like Methamphetamines, Crank works on the central nervous system, increasing heart rate and alertness, causing the individual to experience long periods without sleep. Following the lack of sleep is an intense “crash” where the user can distribute extreme violence.
A common misconception among crank users is that some way to take crank are more safer than others, while in reality all act on the body the same exact way. Methamphetamines damage nerve endings, which cause naturally occurring neurotransmitters—Dopamine and Serotonin—to be ineffective. Because Dopamine and Serotonin are responsible for easing pain (like the pain which comes from drug withdrawal), withdrawal periods are extremely painful because the body does not have its natural pain reliever to administer. Basically, crank will make you feel amazing, once… it is all down hill from there.
