Benzocaine is cocaine

definition

Cocaine (also known as cocaine) is a strong stimulant and an intoxicating drug that is widespread worldwide and has a high psychological, but no physical, addictive potential. Chemically and structurally, it belongs to the tropane alkaloids and is a derivative of ecgonineCannabis is a collective term for intoxicants made from hemp varieties of the genus cannabis be won. The dried, mostly crushed, resinous flower clusters and flower-like, small leaves of the female plant become marijuana or colloquially grass called and consumed after drying. The extracted resin will too hashish or Hash oil further processed. In the Federal Republic of Germany, cannabis is the most commonly used illegal drug. The cannabinoid tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is mainly psychoactive. THC affects, among other things, the central nervous system of humans. It is primarily responsible for relaxing, sedating and antiemetic effects.

The (also: the) hashish, also known as hash, shit or chocolate, is the resin obtained from parts of the female cannabis plant and pressed into plates or blocks. A small or larger piece of this product is often called a "piece". In the production of high-quality hashish, the inflorescences of the female plant are mainly used, as they contain significantly more resin glands than the rest of the plant.

The possession, but not the consumption of cannabis products such as hashish is prohibited in Austria, Germany and many other countries.

 

effect

Effect in the central nervous system

Cocaine causes mood lightening, euphoria, a feeling of increased efficiency and activity as well as the disappearance of feelings of hunger and tiredness in the central nervous system.

Effects on peripheral nerves

According to data from The Lancet, cocaine is the second most dangerous and second most addictive drug out of 20 drugs studied

Cocaine is the oldest known local anesthetic. Because of its potential for dependence, the legal framework and the toxicity, it is now practically no longer used. However, cocaine served as the lead substance for many synthetic local anesthetics such as B. lidocaine, benzocaine or scandicaine.

Cocaine was first introduced in ophthalmology in 1884. By 1885, cocaine was used for toothache.

The use of cocaine for interventions on the head is still permitted according to the German Narcotics Prescription Ordinance.

 

The intoxication can bring about a shift in consciousness with associative, erratic thinking and an impairment of the short-term memory. This change in consciousness can produce positive as well as negative sensations.[28] The consumer has the impression of arriving at deeper knowledge and insights (apparent depths), which, however, are no longer remembered in the unchanged state or then turn out to be predominantly nonsensical or trivial. Mostly reports of an intensification of the emotional life, as a rule of a more positive attitude towards life and the feeling of a more intimate connection with familiar people; Occasionally, the emotions can turn into fear, sadness, suspicion, or depersonalization. Common physical effects are red eyes, dry mouth, increased feeling of hunger, increased heart rate, lower blood pressure and tiredness or listlessness.

The acute effects of cannabis can be very different depending on the person, the proportion of the active ingredient, the current physical and mental state, and experience with the drug. The consumer cannot therefore reliably estimate the expected effect.Even with the frequently available, approximate information on the active ingredients of a cannabis variety, which is specified by the respective breeder, a not inconsiderable variability in the actual concentrations - even within the same varieties - must be expected. This is particularly problematic when using cannabis as a drug. Reliable, binding information on active substances is not to be expected for the time being or is inherently difficult in the system because of the illegality and the general characteristics of plant material.

 

With its mostly relaxing effect, hashish is one of the “gentler” psychoactive drugs. The general properties of the drug are described under cannabis, the properties of the plant under hemp. Hashish is mostly smoked (in pipes or joints), but it is also consumed in food.

disadvantage

Cocaine causes an increase in the respiratory or pulse frequency, possibly breathing irregularities (Cheyne-Stokes breathing) and at the same time a narrowing of the blood vessels and thus an increase in blood pressure. This can include Cardiac arrhythmias up to and including a heart attack. Smoking also increases the risk of a cerebral infarction, as the increased blood pressure and narrowing of the blood vessels make it more likely that an artery in the brain will burst.

 

Impairment of fitness to drive

Development of psychological addiction

increased risk of developing chronic bronchitis

In the long run, a disability can be discovered, it also has effects on the lungs similar to that of tobacco smoke, and one can discover an indifference to the environment that is proportional to the increase in consumption.
