GHB (Gamma Hydroxybutyrate) is a CNS depressant, with effects that are similar to those of barbiturates and methaqualone. There is a high rate of poly-drug experimentation associated with its use, especially with alcohol, which tends to amplify its effects. GHB is a white powder which turns undetectable once dissolved in liquid, and is often taken in the form of a liquid solution. Visit the GHB Page to learn more.
