Ketamine (nickname: keta, special K) is a special trip drug. It is used a lot as anesthetic with humans and animals. As a recreational drug, it is mainly available in powder form. It is primarily snorted. Ketamine is often difficult to dose (doses range from 15 to 150 mg). The intensity can be different for everyone; it often depends on how regularly you take ketamine, because habituation occurs quickly. At a low dose, you end up in a floaty state, where you are slightly disoriented. With a high dose it can get very trippy. All kinds of dissociative effects can occur, including the feeling that your mind no longer belongs to your body.  

Ketamine can quickly increase in intensity if you raise the dose. With a very high dose you can also end up in a K-hole. This is described by some as a near-death experience. It can be a very spiritual, but also a very scary experience. You can prevent this by taking small ‘bumps’ (bits of powder) instead of snorting away entire lines. High Human Selena Sattler mainly takes keta to enjoy dancing even more: ‘I use it occasionally because of the physical effect, it loosens the body and I can completely immerse in the music’. 

Ketamine is ranked number 11 out of 20 in Professor David Nutt’s drug harm index. When used regularly, it can be unhealthy for your organs, such as your bladder. Drugs are never without risk. For more information about this, we would like to refer you to Jellinek, where you can read more about: effects/ risks/ addiction.
