GHB 'G' / Liquid 'E'


Gamma hydroxybutyrate -- GHB -- is a powerful, rapidly acting central nervous system depressant. It was first synthesized in the 1920s and was under development as an anesthetic agent in the 1960s. GHB is produced naturally by the body in small amounts but its physiological function is unclear.
GHB is abused for its ability to produce euphoric and hallucinogenic (Feel good) states and for its alleged function as a growth hormone that releases agents to stimulate muscle growth. GHB is often used as a sex enhancer due to much lowered inhabitions of the user. This also often leads to unprotected and un-consensual sex.

Effects

Consumption of less than 1 gram of GHB acts as a relaxant, causing a loss of muscle tone and reduced inhibitions. Consumption of 1 to 2 grams causes a strong feeling of relaxation and slows the heart rate and respiration. At this dosage level, GHB also interferes with blood circulation, motor coordination, and balance. In stronger doses, 2 to 4 grams, pronounced interference with motor and speech control occurs. A coma-like sleep may be induced, requiring intubation to wake the user. When mixed with alcohol, the depressant effects of GHB are enhanced. This can lead to respiratory depression, unconsciousness, coma, and overdose.
Side effects associated with GHB may include nausea, vomiting, delusions, depression, vertigo, hallucinations, seizures, respiratory distress, loss of consciousness, slowed heart rate, lowered blood pressure, amnesia and coma. GHB can become addictive with sustained use. 'G' contains industrial like chemicals (similar to what you find in floor stripper) which can cause respetory and cardiac trauma's due to the body slowing down so much, G-Sleep.

NB!! Overdose: It is very easy to overdose with GHB. The difference between a desired effect and passing out is only a few milligrams.


Drug-facilitated rape

Drug-facilitated rape is defined as sexual assault made easier by the offender's use of an anesthetic-type drug that renders the victim physically incapacitated or helpless and unable to consent to sexual activity. Whether the victim is unwittingly administered the drug or willingly ingests it for recreational use is irrelevant--the person is victimized because of their inability to consciously consent to sexual acts.


Methods of Administration:

Oral
GHB is usually taken orally. It is sold as a light-colored powder that easily dissolves in liquids or as a pure liquid packaged in vials or small bottles. In liquid form, it is usually clear, odorless, tasteless, and almost undetectable when mixed in a drink. It may also be slightly thicker than water, yellowish in colour and have a slightly chemical smell. In this case it will also have a bitter taste. G is typically consumed with a needless syringe
