Tik is the South African word for methamphetamine. It’s commonly smoked by placing meth crystals in a light bulb from which the metal threading has been removed. A lighter is used to heat the bulb and as the heat spreads through the thin glass, the crystals make a ticking, popping sound. Users named the drug ‘tik’ after this ticking sound. It’s spelled phonetically.
