GHB is taken orally but is often sold as a clear, odourless, colourless and tasteless liquid. This is usually the form that it is used to be mixed into liquids such as drinks (often alcoholic) in which it dissolves quickly. The sedative effect of the product prevents the victim from resisting sexual assault and may even have moments of amnesia. For this reason it is sometimes called “date rape” drug. It can also be sold as a white powder, granules or capsules to dissolve. At low doses, it causes disinhibition and in higher doses, it causes a hypnotic state and amnesia (impaired memory).

The desired effects are muscle relaxation, loss of inhibitions, reduced anxiety and euphoria.
