Synthetic Cannabinoids

SPICE, Annihilation, Red
These contain chemicals that copy the effects of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the active ingredient in cannabis. Synthetic cannabinoid smoking mixtures tend to be a mix of plant ingredients sprayed with chemicals. There is nothing natural or herbal about these combinations, they are man-made and can have some serious side effects. They are also not the same as cannabis.

People using synthetic cannabinoids can feel enhanced sensations and a feeling of heaviness as well as a rapid heart rate, nausea, anxiety, paranoia, panic attacks and feeling withdrawn.

The chemical used in herbal products like ‘Spice’ change all the time which is why people can never be sure what they’re getting or how it will affect them. They may be more harmful than cannabis.

These are Class B drugs.
