GBH is similar to alcohol as far as their overall effects are concerned. Components of liquid ecstasy (as the substance is often called) used to be accessible until 2000, when their distribution started to be controlled on the federal levels.

GHB is popular not only with party animals but also used by businessmen, athletes, sexual predators and pensioners.

Prominent Effects Of GHB Intoxication

The action mechanisms of GHB are similar to the desired effects of the drug. There have even been attempts to use GHB in order to pass alcohol drug tests. The effects of GHB are the following:

  • Mild to extreme disorientation
  • Nausea
  • Mild to extreme drowsiness
  • Inhibitions at low levels
  • Loss of Coordination
  • Decreased motor skills

Other names used for GHB are especially frightening such as:

  • Grievous Bodily Harm
  • Soap
  • Georgia Home Boy
  • Liquid X
  • Goop

Why would anyone poison their body with GHB,knowing that it has such horrifying street name as “Grievous Bodily Harm”? It is crucial to realize that in pursuit of the substance,  addicts lose themselves and things which do not seem normal to people without addiction, won’t scare the typical GBH addict.

Other Notes On GHB

GHB is often to blame for sex crimes. The drug harms memory, and the addict is often unaware of the things that have been done. There is also the possibility that someone may accidentally ingest GHB as the substance has no taste, odor or color.

Taking this drug can lead to:

  • Coma
  • Seizures
  • Death
  • Unconsciousness

Strength of GHB differs from batch to batch, as there is no certain standard as for most other drugs. Due to this, the probability of overdose is exceptionally high. Accidental murders take place because of this substance when used in sexual crimes. There is a very thin line between overdose and intoxication. The latter can be followed by unconsciousness and death in a very short period of time. That is why help to people suffering from GHB Addiction should be provided immediately. This substance jeopardizes the lives of its addicts regardless of whether they take it as sleep-aid or alcohol replacement.
