Ketamine is a powerful, fast-acting tranquilizing drug with anesthetic and hallucinogenic effects. It is considered more dangerous than other hallucinogenic drugs in its category. It is most
often administered intravenously or intramuscularly. Chemically, ketamine is related to PCP (Angel Dust). It is more commonly used for animal surgery, but is occasionally administered
to humans as well. Ketamine as a street drug in liquid form can almost always be traced to veterinarian clinics and medical suppliers from where they are diverted.
Ketamine takes from 1-5 minutes for injection to take effect. When snorted, the effect kicks in within 5-15 minutes. Orally administered ketamine takes the longest, between 5-30 minutes
Generally, it takes from 1-5 minutes for injected ketamine to take effect. When snorted, the effect kicks in within 5-15 minutes. Orally administered ketamine takes the longest, between
5-30 minutes and this depends on how much food was recently eaten. The primary effects of this drug normally last for 30-45 minutes if injected, 45-60 minutes when snorted and 1-2 hours
if taken orally. According to the DEA, the overall effects of ketamine can still affect the body for up to 24 hours.
Standard drug test panels test for cannabinoids, cocaine,
amphetamines, opiates and PCP (SAMHSA 5). Cost is a primary reason why ketamine is not included in a standard drug test. However, it can be detected in a blood test when specifically
requested by an employer especially if there is reasonable suspicion that an employee may be using the drug. With a blood test, ketamine has a detection window of 7-14 days or longer
for long-time users. A more economical ketamine drug test is a urine drug test, but with a shorter window of detection of up to 4 days only. Another expensive test but with the added
advantage of establishing long-term ketamine use is the hair follicle drug test, which can give a 90-day drug use profile from a 1.5-inch hair sample.

Ketamine is a dissociative anesthetic that has the combined properties of an analgesic, stimulant, depressant and hallucinogen – in short the whole nine yards. A dissociative anesthetic
distorts a person’s perception of sight and sound, creating illusions of detachment from oneself and the environment.
Forms and Routes of Administration
Ketamine is most often available as a white powder or as colorless, odorless liquid. It is also available in capsule, tablet or crystal form. As with other drugs, the route of administration
depends on what form of the drug is being used, and even then, illicit drug users find creative ways to take it other than the usual.
