GHB is a drug, it is illegal and not safe to use. I provide you with
information. Information can not harm you, but GHB can....
GHB, or gamma-hydroxybutyrate is a naturally occurring metabolite and
precursor to GABA(gamma-aminobutyrate). GHB was a widely available over-the-counter
supplement until it was banned by the FDA in 1990. The substance has many beneficial
effects, but it is has been used by bodybuilders and athletes because it is said to
raise growth hormone levels. Unfortunately, the increase in GH levels
is also accompanied by an increase in levels of prolactin. The increase in prolactin
counteracts many of the positive effects of an elevated GH level. This probably explains
why many athletes experience very little as far as muscle growth with the use of GHB.
Some have used GHB as a sleep aid. One problem with
GHB-induced sleep is that some people tend to wake up 3-4 hours later when the GHB has
worn off. This effect is probably due to the fact that GHB will temporarily inhibit the
release of dopamine in the brain, and at the same time increase dopamine storage. When the
GHB wears off, there will be a sudden increase in dopamine release and this is what may
cause some people to wake up in the middle of the night.
Now that GHB has been banned by the FDA, an athlete only has a few options if he wants to
obtain GHB. First, he can buy it on the black market. This has several disadvantages. To
begin with, much of the stuff on the black market is made by underground chemists using
cheap materials that may contain harmful impurities. Also, it is difficult to determine
the concentration since most GHB sold on the black market is dissolved in water. The
concentration will often vary and this will make it hard to accurately determine a dosage.
A second option would be to mail-order the GHB from a foreign pharmacy. This is risky
because US Customs may seize the order. There may also be legal consequences to buying
GHB. GHB is a controlled substance and many states are trying to make it a scheduled drug.
Some states are even trying to make it a schedule I drug. The last option left to the
athlete is to make the GHB himself. The manufacture of GHB is illegal in the United
States, but many people choose to do it anyway. There are several different procedures for
synthesizing GHB available over the internet. Some are good and some are bad. The
synthesis of GHB is certainly not difficult, but it is definitely not as easy as mixing
some NaOH with gamma butyrolactone in a pot and allowing it to cook in the oven for a
couple of hours. That type of procedure will produce some GHB, but the yield will be very
poor. Chances are there will also be a lot of unreacted chemicals. Also, depending on the
pH, it could be dangerous to ingest. Many of the GHB procedures with good yields may be
difficult to perform by the average person that has very little knowledge of chemistry.
Conclusion: Stay natural and keep away from dangerous drugs like GHB!
