What is GHB?
GAMMA-BUTYROLACTONE-GBL Liquid/ GHB (gamma hydroxybutyrate) is a depressant drug, which means it slows down messages travelling between the brain and body.
also, GBL (gamma butyrolactone) and 1,4-BD (1,4-butanediol) are chemicals that are closely related to GHB. Once GBL or 1,4-BD enter the body, they convert to GHB almost immediately.1
again, GHB usually comes as a colorless, odorless, bitter or salty liquid, often sold in small bottles or vials. It can also come as a bright blue liquid known as ‘blue nitro’, and less commonly as a crystal powder
What does it do?/ GAMMA-BUTYROLACTONE-GBL Liquid
- Both GHB and GBL are depressant drugs which can produce a high with small doses, and cause sedation with only slightly higher doses. People report that G makes them feel euphoric, with a loss of inhibitions, increased confidence, and a higher sex drive.
What are the risks?
- It is easy to overdose on G, as there is not much difference (less than one milliliter) between a dose that gets a person high, and a dose that has them “going under” – becoming unconscious and unresponsive.
- Avoid mixing G with alcohol. This can increase the risk of going under, and delay the time it takes for G to take effect – interfering with safe dosing intervals.
- A number of deaths have been caused by G. Death can result from overdose, or severe withdrawal syndrome.
- Using G with other depressant drugs, such as alcohol, benzodiazepines and ketamine can increase the risk of going under and stopping breathing. In some cases, people might be hospitalized after using G.
- G is addictive and dependence can develop quickly. Dependence mean people will develop withdrawal symptoms on stopping use, which can be severe and life-threatening.
- The sedative properties of G can leave a person incoherent or comatose. People around you may take advantage of this to have sex with you without your consent.
