Ketamine (K, special k, ket, jet) is an anaesthetic prescribed by doctors and vets. It comes as a white powder, pressed pills or liquid. Ketamine is both a depressant and a psychedelic. It can make you feel relaxed, confused, or have ‘out of body’ experiences.

A large dose can bring about a state where you can’t move or speak, known as a ‘k-hole’. Some people seek this out to feel detached from themselves, their bodies and the world around – also known as ‘dissociating’.
