Ketamine is a potent anaesthetic that provides feelings of detachment from the body. Used in veterinary medicine, Ketamine has become popular among people on the party scene.
Ketamine most commonly comes in a white powder and the effects are extremely powerful, causing users to hallucinate, reduce physical sensations and induce temporary paralysis so the user is awake but may not be able to move or even talk. When the user is paralysed, they will not be able to clear their airway which could lead to choking and potentially death as a result of aspiration.
