Spice | Man-Made Synthetic Cannabis

Synthetic Cannabis, also known by its brand names Spice and K2, is a legal herb laced with chemicals. Many who've tried it say it's just like smoking marijuana, and in some cases even stronger. Experts with the DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) and the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) are concerned. Their concern is growing. Spice is easily obtainable because it is sold at many ‘head shops,’ gas stations, and convenience stores under the guise of aromatherapy incense and herbal incense. It isn’t regulated, and it can cause serious impairment, and also serious side effects.

What is in Spice?

Manufacturers of synthetic cannabis claim a mixture of traditionally used medicinal herbs, each of which is alleged to produce mild effects, but the overall blend results in cannabis type intoxication. The packaging states the following ingredients:

  • Canavalia maritima,
  • Nymphaea caerulea,
  • Scutellaria nana,
  • Pedicularis densiflora,
  • Leonotis leonurus,
  • Zornia latifolia,
