Commonly called either K2 or Spice, it is a potpourri like substance that is marketed as a synthetic THC, the psychoactive chemical found in marijuana.
This man-made chemical is sprayed on an herbal mixture that often contains lettuce and other mild herbs and plants.
Other chemicals are added, and packages of K2 have been found with chemical structures similar to incense.
Most K2 also contains oleamaide, a chemical used in manufacturing plastic, that has a long half-life, making the effects of K2 last longer than marijuana.
Although K2 does have synthetic chemicals that bind to the brain’s cannaboid receptors (the same receptors that THC binds to), it has at least six other psychoactive chemicals that impact other areas of the brain.
This means that while it sometimes gives users a similar high as marijuana, it does much more and has a wider brain impact.
Because there are no regulations on how K2 is made, every package could contain different chemicals at different strengths.
Sometimes, people smoke K2 with no ill effects, but then they have a bad experience.
They may begin to have psychotic symptoms, hallucinations, and extreme anxiety and paranoia.
The drug also increases heart rate, and when users start panicking, the heart rate can reach dangerous levels.
