GBL: Ingestion methods
Last modified: Sunday, 31. May 2009 - 3:41 pm
As GBL is an industrial and household solvent, there have been unintentional poisonings. The clear liquid or light-colored powder can be mixed with water, alcohol, or soda, allowing the unwary to drink it accidentally or be tricked into drinking it when someone secretly laces the drink. At night clubs and “raves,” partygoers often carry the drug around in eye-drop bottles, water bottles, or disguised as mouthwash with added food coloring and flavorings.
The typical dose is 1-2 tsp to 5 g of powder mixed in a beverage, depending on the purity, which can vary considerably. Renewtrient and other products containing GBL or related chemicals are sometimes sold in capsules.
