Spice, also known as K2, is in a family of powerful drugs known as synthetic cannabinoids, or artificial marijuana. Spice is made up of plant leaves and stems laced with synthetic (lab-created) chemicals that claim to provide a high similar to that of THC, the active ingredient in marijuana. Users typically smoke Spice in a pipe or joint. Also, users can brew the substance in tea. However, unlike marijuana, Spice is known for giving users unpleasant highs, which can sometimes border on extreme and disturbing. Spice goes by many other names, such as “Genie,” “Black Mamba,” and “Fake Weed” to “Zohai.” Because of the potency of the drug, Spice addiction treatment, as well as spice k2 addiction treatment, is necessary to help individuals stop using.
