  • My tongue is already numb. -You're very active now, very explosive.

  • Hi, I'm Nellie. -And I'm Dzifa.

  • Welcome to... -Our Drugslab.

  • Twice a month we test a drug to see how it affects our body.

  • And to break the taboo on drugs.

  • If you're curious about a drug or if you know a nice location...

  • let us know, and who knows we might try it out for you.

  • Ignacio Mouzo wants to know how coca leaves work.

  • And Dugo1nh0 really wants to know how coca powder works.

  • That's one and the same substance.

  • So that's what we're going to do today. Not we, I am.

  • This is our coca powder. It has a deep green colour, but it can be brownish.

  • The fresher the powder, the lighter the colour.

  • It has the texture of a crushed plant. It smells a bit like green tea.

  • Coca is an indigenous plant from the Andes region in South America.

  • Coca makes you think of cocaine, but in South America that's an insult.

  • They consider coca as a sacred plant and use it as a pick-me-up, like coffee.

  • Coca powder is made from crushed dried coca leaves.

  • It contains many substances of which one is the basis for cocaine.

  • One leaf contains 0.1 grams of cocaine.

  • That's one percent of pure cocaine, so this is highly concentrated.

  • We also have a video about cocaine. Click here to watch that video.

  • I'm wearing the belt. -The active ingredient affects:

  • Your endurance, your appetite, and your ability to concentrate.

  • We want to test that first to establish a baseline.

  • And then we'll see what happens when you use coca leaves.

  • It reduces your appetite, so I didn't eat anything this morning.

  • It's recommended to eat before you try this...

  • but we're guinea pigs, who'll do anything for science.

  • To test your concentration you get to paint my nails.

  • One hand before you try coca powder and one afterwards.

  • And to test your endurance, we'll see how long you can hold up a heavy item.

  • I'll do it with my left hand, because that's my weak hand.

  • Besides the social and culture aspect...

  • coca leaves are used as medication for altitude sickness, for example.

  • It's also used on the work floor.

  • Chefs who want to cook all night long, for example, chew on the leaves.

  • I think you did a nice job. I also have something else for you.

  • You have to hold this up for as long as you can.

  • I have to stop fooling around, because this is pretty heavy.

  • Do you exercise a lot? -Not often enough.

  • Well done.

  • I have news for you. You held it up for 1 minute, 28 seconds.

  • That's a good baseline.

  • You can use coca in several ways. You can make tea or chew on the leaves.

  • You can also use it in the form of candy or powder.

  • I have a nice method. I'm going to spoon it up and stick it in my cheek.

  • We've weighed two grams.

  • Two grams of coca powder should be enough to feel the effects slightly.

  • If you take three to four grams you should feel the effects better.

  • So we're going for four grams? You shouldn't take it all at once.

  • Start off with two grams and take seconds 15 minutes later.

  • I'm going to stuff it in my cheek, so it becomes a lump here.

  • I'm going to clench my jaw, so it doesn't go down my throat or get in my mouth.

  • I want it to stay here.

  • That way it gets absorbed faster by your mucus membrane.

  • Watch out for your teeth. If it gets under your tongue it can feel nasty.

  • Do you need help? Here we go. -Cheers.

  • What does it taste like? Oh wait, you can't talk.

  • It's in the right spot. It's not that gross.

  • My tongue is already numb. And my cheek as well.

  • You can't feel it anymore? -No.

  • The more you take, the longer the effects last.

  • The effects wear off after 30 minutes. You can then spit it out or swallow it.

  • I'm tempted to take a sip of water and spit it out.

  • Why? Is it uncomfortable or is the taste intense?

  • It's making me nauseous.

  • Check the do's and don'ts video to find out what you should and shouldn't do.

  • I can even smell it from over here. -Sorry.

  • It's an intense smell, but quite nice. It smells like this.

  • In Bolivia and Peru they call it 'hoja sagrada', the sacred plant.

  • They've been using it for thousands of years.

  • Despite that it's been around for ages, it's illegal to transport coca.

  • In the Netherlands it falls under the Opium Act.

  • However, it is sold in smart shops, because it's in a grey area.

  • It's illegal, but as it's not a direct threat to public health...

  • they don't crack down hard on it.

  • The active ingredient is absorbed. I do have to say...

  • You're feeling the effects, aren't you? -I am.

  • You're very active now, very explosive.

  • I feel a tingling sensation here. It feels like I'm a hamster.

  • It feels swollen? -Exactly.

  • Let me rinse my mouth, because it has done its job.

  • Then I'll take the second serving.

  • It's funny that you feel the effects so quickly. You're very active now.

  • You're talking louder and faster and you're more expressive.

  • Shall I go like this? -Go ahead.

  • That's two grams. Enjoy. -Thank you.

  • That's it. Look at that.

  • You got it. -Really?

  • A little is falling out, but it's fine. That's it. Perfect.

  • It's time for another test. You can now paint my other nails.

  • I feel cheery, but I don't know if I'll do a better job now though.

  • It's going really smoothly.

  • I'm not necessarily more focused, but I feel more alert.

  • I have a 'let's get cracking' attitude.

  • You were insecure before. -Exactly. Now it's: Let's get cracking.

  • You did a better job on this hand.

  • This was before and this is after. This hand looks better.

  • Let me spit this out before the next test. -You've absorbed the active ingredient.

  • Exactly. -It's doing its job.

  • You've spit it out and you're calm, so it's time for the endurance test.

  • At least two minutes this time. You can do it.

  • You're on one minute now.

  • Good job. 1 minute, 40 seconds.

  • I beat my time. -Indeed.

  • Was it easier? -Not really, but I was more motivated.

  • When you hope and expect that something will happen...

  • that's also part of taking drugs, right? -Right.

  • That's why you shouldn't take drugs when you feel miserable.

  • When I was in Colombia and thanks to all the comments on Drugslab...

  • I discovered that the world behind cocaine is very criminal and corrupt.

  • That made me think: It's time to pay some attention to that.

  • Cocaine is made from coca leaves, but the production started innocently.

  • They didn't start making cocaine from coca leaves until 1855.

  • That's when the problems began. -The corruption and bribery required...

  • to get cocaine across the border results in an inactive legal system...

  • which only increases the violence.

  • So long the demand remains, the violence won't decline.

  • In Europe we consume 350 kilograms of cocaine each day.

  • That's why it's cool that we're an international channel.

  • You get to read stuff that makes you think: Fuck.

  • It's an intense story and that's why I wanted to try coca powder...

  • as an alternative to cocaine. But is coca powder a fair trade product?

  • That's hard to determine, because it's still not legalised.

  • So you don't know how the coca powder was made.

  • It still leads to deforestation.

  • If they legalise it, they can make agreements with the farmers.

  • Give it some thought if you ever want to experiment with cocaine.

  • It was nice to experience the effects of the original product.

  • It had an effect, right? -Right.

  • I slept great. I feel fine. Much different than with chemically produced cocaine.

  • Next week there's a new Drugslab Extra.

  • If you want us to investigate something, let us know and we'll look into it.

  • Give us a thumbs up for this episode. If you're doing drugs now, be careful.

  • Enjoy your weekend. Bye. Love you.

My tongue is already numb. -You're very active now, very explosive.
