It causes lowering of inhibitions, euphoria, and calmness that leads to drowsiness, dizziness and amnesia. It has a characteristic effect of what is sometimes referred to as a "head snap" When the drug takes effect, often there is a definite change in the way the person feels and the head will snap forward or sometimes the person will drop unexpectedly to the floor.
GHB takes effect within 15-20 minutes of ingestion and lasts for 3-6 hours.
