Marijuana is a hot topic across many areas of the world right now, and with the topic of marijuana also comes a discussion of synthetic cannabinoids, also known as K2 or Spice. People who are pro-marijuana often talk about how it is a natural substance that comes from a plant and does not carry as much, or any, risk as other drugs, they will claim. However, there is also another form of cannabinoids that is synthetic and is not natural, it is often mistakenly referred to as synthetic marijuana. While they are similar in that they both act on the same brain cell receptors, K2 or Spice is even more dangerous.
Synthetic cannabinoids consist of human-made mind-altering chemicals that are sprayed on dried, shredded material or vaporized and used to produce a high. The effects of synthetic cannabinoids can be unpredictable, harmful, severe, and even life-threatening. Some of these side effects include a dream-like state, feeling stimulated and energetic, seizures, and even respiratory failure. Because it is a human-made drug, it is very easy to get a highly dangerous batch. Not knowing the affects you might experience after taking this drug make it very scary and very dangerous.
