GHB and GBL are very similar with GBL converting to GHB shortly after it enters your body. They have been used as recreational drugs on the club scene for many years and have also been used by bodybuilders to gain weight. GBL is found in industrial cleaners and some nail varnish remover pads. Although once legal, both are now illegal to possess and/or supply.
GHB and GBL are depressant (downer) drugs which can give you a mild high in small doses and cause a short (several hour) coma-like sleep in larger doses. They also slow down your heart rate and breathing. People using it can experience relaxation, loss of inhibition and increased sex drive as well as cravings to re-dose, unconsciousness, agitation and confusion.
It comes as a clear liquid which tastes a little salty and is usually diluted in water and swallowed. Strengths vary a lot and it is often difficult to know the exact concentration of the liquid you are taking. If you don't know the concentration of your GHB/GBL, be extremely careful. Only a small amount can cause accidental overdose.
If you choose to take GBH/GBL:
-Always measure your dose using a dropper and start with a small amount (0.3-0.5ml)
-Wait until effects are felt and don't re-dose for at least 2 hours
-Always dilute in water and add a food colouring to avoid accidental drinking
-Always use in a safe place with friends and with someone who is ‘straight’ as it is common to become unconscious with GHB/GBL
-Avoid frequent use. GHB/GBL is very physically addictive
-Avoid mixing with other downers especially alcohol which increases the risk of overdose
Class C drug. Penalties for possession are up to 2 years in prison and/or an unlimited fine. Supply holds penalties of up to 14 years in prison and/or an unlimited fine.
