Ethketamine is also known as N-Ethylnorketamine and NEK. It is a research chemical that is structurally related to ketamine. It was first identified in seized drug samples by analytical laboratories in the UK and other European countries in 2012. As for the experience, recreational users report that ethketamine produces euphoric and dissociative effects (Bluelight, 2012; Bluelight, 2012).

Side Effects and Adverse Reactions:

Very little empirical data exists about the side effects, adverse reactions, long term damage, and/or addiction potential of ethketamine. Remember, research chemicals are experimental chemicals that are not approved for human consumption. This is because not enough data exists currently about their effects in humans. Although some people are willing to ingest the research chemical ethketamine, it is unreasonable to assume that it is in any way safe to use recreationally.
