(ket, k, wobble, wonk)

Ketamine is a dissociative drug with mildly hallucinogenic properties. It is used regularly in veterinary and paediatric medicine as an anaesthetic. Ketamine is usually snorted but is also occasionally injected. It is generally sold as a fine white powder or in small glass-like shards.

Effects | Dosage | Advice | Support


If snorted, the effects of ketamine take around 5-15 minutes to come on and will last around 1 hour:

At high doses you may experience a “k-hole” where you become unresponsive to external stimuli and experience vivid and sometimes uncomfortable hallucinations.


As always, dosage will depend on a number of factors such as weight, tolerance and gender, amongst others. These dosages are a guide only and refer to ketamine taken nasally.
