[ARTICLE] Spice or K2
Filed Under: Wellness | Published: Apr 30, 2018 | Author: The Coleman Institute
Drugs and other items sold as artificial marijuana are not even close to natural marijuana.  They are chemicals synthesized in labs.  They have a vague structural similarity to THC, so they can work on the same receptors in the brain and the body.

In the last few years, we have heard reports of people using artificial marijuana becoming psychotic, delusional, and losing complete toucy with reality.  There have also been reports of people dying in different parts of the country from a new form of artificial pot affects the body's blood clotting system.  It thinks the blood like rat poison, not allowing the blood to clot. They frequently die from brain hemorrhages or with their lungs filling up with blood.

A deceving product labeling process makes this more attractive to customers.  Manufacturers sell these products in colorful foil packages and plastic bottles to attract consumers.  They market these products under a wide variety of specific brand names.  Hundreds of brands now exist, including K2, Spice, Joker, Black Mamba, Kush, and Kronic.  Labels also often claim that they contain "natural" material taken from a variety of plants.  However, the only parts of these products that are natural are the dried plant materials.  Chemical test show that the active, mind-altering ingredients are cannabinoid compounds made in laboratories.

Synthetic cannabinoid users report some effects similar to those produced by marijuana:

  • elevated mood
  • relaxation
  • altered perception
  • symptoms of psychosis
  • extreme anxiety
  • confusion
  • paranoia
  • hallucinations
  • rapid heart rate
  • vomiting
  • violent behavior
  • suicidal thoughts
