Everyone always wants to find another route of administration though, of course.
I'm not sure, but it might actually work better to cook the oxys up with a small amount of water, and vaporize a drop or two of the liquid.
And swiy probably couldn't snort the 80mg because they're too strong. I mean, oxycontin are all the same size: 10s-80s, so while a hit off of a 10mg might effect you, a hit off an 80mg will be... well, 8 times stronger, i'd think. (i'm not good with math)
The oxys could potentially be cooked, but boiling any water with oxycodone
in it risks destroying the drug
. Alot of opiates
are very heat sensitive (hence why one doesnt want to use boiling water in a CWE, or applying direct flame while smoking), so SWIM
would avoid attempting to cook the pills. However since oxycodone is already water soluble, one could potentially just dissolve the pill in warm water and vaporize it. But at that point, it would probably work just as well to take the pill orally or insufflate it...oxycodone has such a high oral bioavailability that it kind of defeats the purpose of exotic routes of administration
SWIYou are right in advising against snorting
80 mg right off the bat, too. That's a pretty high dosage, and people without a large tolerance could be in some very real danger attempting to smoke or snort 80 mg. If one was attempting to smoke a whole 80 mg pill, they'd be in trouble if they had a low tolerance, what SWIM has heard of lab rats doing to titrate their dosage is to break the pill into quarter sections, and then smoking 20 mg at a time.
Here's what SWIM is wondering from the lab rats who have tried this method though, and its an honest question:
What is the appeal of smoking oxycodone?
SWIM honestly doesn't understand why some rats seem to prefer this method, and he has not gotten a good answer yet, aside from "it's better". Granted, the onset might be faster, but SWIM hasn't noticed a better high, greater rush, longer peak, etc. from using this route. Not to mention that the smoke is harsh, and until one has the technique down, its very easy to lose some of the smoke by coughing.
SWIM is not trying to be a dick here, or disparage anyone's preferred route of administration, he's honestly curious.
