What is Crystal Methamphetamine?

by | Jul 11, 2022 | Addiction | 0 comments

Crystal Methamphetamine is a highly potent and addictive psychoactive drug that directly affects the central nervous system. In street slang, it’s commonly known as “meth”, “crystal”, “blue”, “glass”, or “speed”. It is commonly used at raves and nightclubs by partygoers of all types. Characterized by hyper-alertness, wakefulness, and endurance, users can quickly experience psychosis, lack of sleep, paranoia, and risky sexual behavior.

Crystal meth or d-methamphetamine is a synthetic (man-made) psychostimulant. It’s commonly called “crystal” for its clear appearance and signature snowflake pattern created by UV light activation on crystalline structures within each molecule during manufacture; these compounds also cause highly potent effects when taken as prescribed medication in some countries outside the US due to their higher potency levels than traditional drugs like cocaine which can lead people who abuse them to severe addiction.

Crystal meth or d-methamphetamine is a synthetic psychostimulant. Stimulants are commonly referred to as “uppers.” Dopamine is the brain’s pleasure center that increases with the use of this drug which leads those who misuse it to temporary euphoria. However, over time users develop tolerance so their high decreases. Initially, increased alertness and concentration are experienced but over time these effects deteriorate and require more to experience the same level of euphoria.

The Difference between crystal meth, amphetamine, and methamphetamine?

Amphetamines, such as methamphetamine and crystal methamphetamine (or “meth”), are similar in many ways. They produce an effect on the body that’s dependent upon potency or dosage, but they do have one major difference – amphetamine is used for ADHD (Adderall). Both types can lead to addiction with excessive use over time whereas this isn’t necessarily true about its counterpart drugs like MDMA which are less often associated with dependence issues. As a rule of thumb, methamphetamines are much stronger than amphetamines. Crystal Meth is the most potent of the three and all are abusable.

Where does crystal meth come from?

Amphetamines are derived from a plant native to China and Mongolia called ephedra or Ephedra sinica. The main ingredient in amphetamine is its natural alkaloid, which results in physiological response when taken as it stimulates the central nervous system (CNS). It has been speculated that ancient cultures used these plants for their stimulant effects. Amphetamine was first isolated around 1887 by German chemist Friedrich Wöhler who used his knowledge of chemistry during the organic synthesis process.
