Street names: K, Special K, Vitamin K, New Ecstasy, Psychedelic Heroin, Ketalar, Ketaject, Super-K and Breakfast Cereal. Slang for experiences related to ketamine or effects of ketamine include, "k-hole," "K-land," "baby food," and "God."
Effects: Classified as a dissassociative, ketamine creates a sensation where the user feels as if they are separated from their body and may report near death experiences. Users refer to this sensation as a "K-hold" or "K-land." In this state, users to not respond to pain and are at risk of injury without being aware or even caring about it.
Low doses (25 - 100mg) will produce a "high" very quickly. Larger doses can cause vomiting, seizures and reduced breathing. Doses of 1 gram or more can cause death.
The ketamine "high" usually lasts for about an hour although effects may persist for 4-6 hours. Like most anesthetic agents, it may take the user 24 - 48 hours before they feel "normal" again.
