Benzoylecgonine is the major metabolite of cocaine and how it is excreted thru the urine.
As described by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, cocaine is a powerfully addictive stimulant derived from coca leaves. Cocaine is a Schedule II drug, which means the potential for abuse is great. Cocaine can be injected, snorted, or smoked (crack, or freebase cocaine). When injected or snorted, cocaine is in its hydrochloride salt form. When smoked, cocaine is in its base cocaine form and processed with ammonia or baking soda as well as water, and heated into a smokable substance. Our cocaine drug test detects both cocaine and crack cocaine.
The National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) estimated in 2007 that there are 2.1 million current (past-month) cocaine users in America, of which approximately 610,000 were crack users. Young adults have the highest rate of current cocaine use - in the study 1.7% of young adults reported recent cocaine use. Further alarming is the fact that the NSDUH also reported in 2007 that almost 1.6 million Americans met the criteria for addiction/abuse of cocaine.
Our easy to use cocaine drug test allows you to find out whether the subject of the test has used cocaine in the past 2 to 4 days. This urine drug test is extremely accurate and meets the government guideline cutoff levels established by the Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). All that is required is a urine sample and a timer and the results are practically instant. For detecting recent cocaine use, Home Health Testing's cocaine drug test will suit your needs.

Frequently Asked Questions - Cocaine Urine Test
Q: Does your cocaine drug test test for cocaine AND crack cocaine?
Yes. Our cocaine urine drug test will detect cocaine or crack cocaine drug use.
Q: What are the detection periods for cocaine?
Our cocaine urine drug test detects cocaine (or crack cocaine) up to 2 to 4 days after use. Some studies suggest that repeated doses of cocaine can result in longer detection periods. An example of such a study can be read here at the US National Library of Medicine database PubMed. This study suggests that repeated cocaine dosing may make the detection period twice as long, meaning the cocaine urine test we sell could in situations of repeated or extreme use detect cocaine up to 8 days after use.
It is important to note that our cocaine urine test actually tests for benzoylecgonine, not cocaine itself. Benzoylecgonine stays in the body longer than cocaine, and its just as good an indicator of cocaine use as cocaine itself.

Coke, crack, blow, flake, snow, toot, nose candy, liquid lady and more.
