Ketamine's effects are very similar to those of PCP, but less potent and of shorter duration. Ketamine users report effects that range from a pleasant feeling of floating, to being separated from their bodies.
But, the effects of ketamine can be unpredictable. Some users report having terrifying feelings of complete sensory detachment similar to a near-death experience. This experience is known as a "K-hole."
Because Ketamine is odorless and tasteless is has been known to be used as a "date rape" drug, slipped into beverages unnoticed.
These are not the only effects of ketamine, for more detailed information, please see What Are the Effects of Dissociative Drugs?
