A Ketamine user will always need higher doses soon after starting to use since tolerance for the drug is built up rather quickly and the drug's effects only last for a short period.
Using Ketamine without a doctor's prescription is illegal.
Ketamine comes in three forms: a pill, a liquid to inject, or an off-white powder to snort. 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.
Ketamine Misuse And Effects
A hallucinogenic drug, Ketamine produces dissociation and an overwhelming feeling of relaxation. The abrupt high of Ketamine does not typically last for longer than 60 minutes. The "K-Hole" effect is a strong aftermath that makes consumers feel completely disconnected from the real world and is only reached by users who directly inject large doses of Ketamine.
The user feels deadened because of its high tranquilizer prosperities which cause wounds or even worse injuries.
Because of Ketamine's unpredictable form, it is hard for the user to tell if they are ingesting too much of the substance. One can overdose even with a small amount, particularly when Ketamine is taken after alcohol consumption of intake of other drugs. Total paralysis of the body can happen because of its sedative function. Death resulting from an overdose of Ketamine is largely attributed to respiratory failure.
Mixing Ketamine With Other Drugs
Ketamine is used with various other drugs that can enhance its worse effects and can be much more dreadful. Ketamine's liquid state can be effortlessly blended and added into liquor beverages, weed and tobacco products. It is very risky to mix Ketamine with alcoholic beverages because of its depressant effects on several systems of the body.
Taking Ketamine along with other depressants might see the heart rate or respiratory function reduced fatally.
In its powder form, Ketamine can be used alongside other powdered drugs including MDMA (ecstasy) and put into a capsule or produced as a tablet. Ecstasy has a stimulating effect while Ketamine has the opposite effect so the combination is very dangerous to the body. LSD and DMT are psychedelics that are also blended with Ketamine.
