Skooma is an illegal crystalline solid produced from Moon Sugar. It is highly addictive and its imbibers pass through bouts of euphoria followed by protracted lethargy. The crystals are placed in a small dish and heated, then smoked through a special pipe. The gas produced is bubbled through water in the pipe to cool it as it is inhaled.
Skooma is made from Moon Sugar and Nightshade. All parts of this plant are poisonous, but some contain an essence which enhances the potency of Moon sugar. If improperly prepared, the imbiber will experience loss of voice, minor fits, and possibly even death.
The root of the Nightshade plant contains most of the essence, but the berries and flowers produce a much more fragrant skooma. The lowest quality skooma is produced from leaves.
