You guys, skip the synthetic marijuana (or spice, or K2, or whatever you want to call it). Seriously. You might remember that back in May, Texas saw a rash of overdoses from K2, a form of synthetic marijuana that may have been mixed with a little PCP. Just last week, New Hampshire actually issued a public health emergency due to a string of overdoses on a different brand of synthetic marijuana called “Smacked!” Exclamation point included.
So what’s the difference between the media’s definition of a “pot overdose” and “spice overdose”? To start, no one has actually died of a marijuana overdose. The pot overdoses we’ve heard about in the news typically describe the intense high that comes from taking in more than the suggested dose of an edible – it doesn’t hurt anyone, it just feels uncomfortable. We can’t say the same for spice. The biggest problem with synthetics is that you really don’t know what you’re getting. They are sprayed with lab-synthesized chemicals, contain a high level of toxicity, and have caused complications like reduced blood supply to the heart, seizures, and, in extreme cases, death.
At the end of the day, you’re always better off au natural. That’s what she said?
