Ketamine has a rich history, being first synthesized in 1962 by professor Calvin L. Stevens of chemistry at Duke University Medical College and garnering attention from researchers around the world ever since.

In addition to its use as an anesthetic, recent studies show that ketamine can relieve various mood disorders such as depression, anxiety, OCD, and PTSD.
