The effects

What G does to you depends on:

  • How much you take.
  • Your height and weight.
  • How much you have eaten during the day.
  • Your general health.
  • Your mood.
  • Your past experience with G.
  • Whether you use G on its own or with other drugs.
  • Whether you use alone or with others at home or at a party, etc.


As with alcohol and many other substances, the effects of G will be affected by how much one has recently eaten. Avoid mixing G with other depressants like alcohol, Valium, ketamine or marijuana.

Short term effects:

At low doses effects include:

  • Relaxation
  • Overdose
  • Reduction of social inhibitions.
  • Decreased motor skills.
  • Mood lift.
  • Other effects similar to alcohol intoxication.

At high doses effects may include:

  • Dizziness
  • Spasms and convulsions
  • Difficulty focusing the eyes.
  • Users may fall into unconsciousness and may be temporarily unable to be awakened. This can also dangerously depress breathing.
  • Positive mood changes
  • Increased appreciation of music
  • Slurring of speech
  • Nausea
  • Extreme grogginess

Long term effects:

G has been called an aphrodisiac.  It is important to remember that being intoxicated on any drug or drugs can affect your decision making about safe sex.  It is a good idea to think about what you are and are not comfortable doing sexually before you use drugs.

Make safe sex a part of any sexual interactions you have as unprotected sex may result in you contracting a sexually transmitted disease such as HIV, Hepatitis or Chlamydia.

Being under the influence of depressant drugs such as G could possibly place you at increased risk of sexual assault. You are much less vulnerable if you only use drugs when you are with people that you know and trust.
