Begin To Understand Ketamine
Ketamine which has street names of Vitamin K, Special K, Cat Valium, Kit Kat, or Dorothy is an anaesthetic abused by people for recreational purposes. Majority of abusers are party-loving young people.
Just like Anabolic steroids and Codeine, Ketamine is a Schedule three controlled substance and is usually sold with the brand name Ketalar.
Schedule III drugs can prompt to physical reliance as well as mental reliance.
The user keeps increasing quantities as they chase the initial high because Ketamine has a short-lived high and users quickly build a resistance.
Without medical supervision, Ketamine use is forbidden.
Produced in liquid form, Ketamine can be used as an injection; as an off-white or white powder, snorted; or it can also be used as a pill. It is notorious for its use as a predator drug as it has no smell or colour, is impossible to notice it in a beverage, and temporarily disables a person.
Effects Of Abusing Ketamine
Ketamine creates a feeling of total relaxation because its a dissociative hallucinogenic tranquilizer which causes a full body buzz. The effects of the drug last for no more than an hour. Ketamine can also cause what is known as the K-hole which has been described as an out-of-body experience, and this is most commonly seen when high doses of the drug are introduced intravenously.
Sedative effects of the drug can result in serious danger for users of this drug because of a numb feeling.
Ketamine effects are unpredictable, so overdosing it accidentally is easy. One can overdose even with a small amount, particularly when Ketamine is taken after alcohol consumption of intake of other drugs. Complete immobilization is common because Ketamine has a strong tranquilizing effect. A Ketamine overdose can damage the respiratory system which results in death of the user.
Combining Ketamine And Other Drugs
The negative effects of Ketamine can be amplified when the drug is mixed with others, a very common practice. In its liquid state, Ketamine is easily mixed into alcoholic drinks or added to tobacco or marijuana products. Alcohol is a depressant like Ketamine, so the combination of the two is particularly harmful.
When Ketamine is used with various depressants, it badly affects and decreases the heart rate as well as affecting the respiratory system.
Ketamine's powder form can be easily mixed with other powdered drugs and produced into a capsule or pill. Considering that MDMA is used as a stimulant, while Ketamine is a depressant, it is risky to mix these drugs. Ketamine is also commonly combined with several other drugs, namely DMT, LSD, and other psychedelics.
