    Science has verified what club goers have long known Special K is a great upper. In a very preliminary study of 18 people, researchers discovered that the club drug, Special K ketamine may treat depression in a matter of hours rather than the typical 6 to 8 weeks that ordinary antidepressants take. The only significant side effect was a temporary feeling of dissociation.

    Some researchers speculate that this drug may be used to help more immediately relieve the symptoms of depression, while typical antidepressants are kicking in. More in-depth, larger-scale studies need to be conducted to ensure the effects are robust and the drug is safe in the low dose used.
