GHB (gamma hydroxybutyrate) is a naturally occurring component of human cells. It is used most commonly in the form of a chemical salt (Na-GHB or K-GHB) which is taken recreationally as a depressant with effects quite similar to those of alcohol. These salts are powders but are most often mixed with water for recreational use. While GHB is most notorious for a few cases where it has been given to unsuspecting individuals, it is more commonly used as a recreational intoxicant like alcohol, as a sleep-aid, or as a supplement by body-builders.

One of the major concerns with GHB is that the recreational dosage range is narrow and even small overdoses can cause temporary unrousable unconsciousness (a type of coma) and large overdoses (poisonings) can be life-threatening. There are two other chemicals which are used as GHB equivalents: 1,4-butanediol and gamma butyrlactone.

A drug that can cause a pleasant euphoria, lessen anxiety and in higher doses, cause one to sleep. It would be all too easy for the uninformed to call this a daterape drug, when subjectively alcohol has been used for quite some time to intoxicate girls enough to be raped. For some unfortunate women though, they have been raped on GHB. GHB is still prescribed in france for anxiety and has a long history of medical use. GHB is always bonded to a salt, for example Sodium (Na) or pottasium (K), Na-GHB, K-GHB, some belive the K-GHB to be healthier as high doses of sodium are said to deplete pottasium levels. GHB is usually made from Lye and GBL. For further help or questions IRC to #ghb on EFnet, or check out Erowid, stay safe, stay informed.
GHB is a GABA inhibitor which can cause many diffrent effects, dependant on dose.
