K2 spice can be more potent than natural THC and potentially have more dangerous side effects. Moreover, as frequently marketed as incense and labeled ” not for human consumption” sellers can bypass laws to gain public access to this drug.
Synthetic marijuana can be smoked in pipes or joints, vaped through e-cigarettes, or even made into tea.
Common street names for synthetic marijuana include:
Fake weed, K2, Spice, Herbal Incense, Moon rocks, Black mamba just to name a few. Scooby snax is also very popular and these names turn to match the colorful picture tainted on the package in which they are sold.
