Is there any way to test the strength of a GHB containing liquid?
Q: While reading about the dosage af GHB, it just gave the dosage for the powder form. But most GHB is found in liquid form. Is there any way to test the strength of a GHB containing liquid, such as the PH level?

A: pH level does not have anything to do with the potency of any particular GHB. To the best of our knowledge, there is no practical way to test the strength of GHB in liquid form. The maximum concentration is somewhere on the order of 1 gram per ml. At that potency, it will be an extremely thick liquid (if not a powder). The thinner the GHB is, the less potent it generally is as it requires mixing with water (or some other liquid)...but don't make a lot of assumptions about that as it doesn't mean it isn't plenty potent. For instance a glass of juice with a large dose of ghb in it may be relatively thin, but plenty to cause temporary coma.
