You may think that Spice or K2 is supposed to be an alternative to smoking marijuana but is far from that. The effects of smoking spice are serious and you could end up hospitalized due to hallucinations, delusions and paranoia.
Spice is commonly known as herbal incense and when smoked, its impact is reported to be many times more powerful than THC in marijuana. The DEA recently took action against the sale of these herbal mixtures and placed them on the Schedule I list of drugs. This so called synthetic marijuana is currently legal in the US and has been banned in many countries in Europe including Germany, France and the U.K.
Spice has hallucinogenic properties that create withdrawal symptoms that are uncomfortable both physically and psychologically. Once addicted to spice, the addict will have intense cravings. People who are addicted will be unable to sit still and focus and will have extreme mood changes growing nasty and become increasingly aggressive.
This mood and mind altering drug will change your personality. In addition to the common symptoms as seen with marijuana abuse, spice offer additional uncomfortable effects. When you are using spice your reality is altered and this state may linger even after spice has left your system.
Additional Effects Include:
It is difficult to safely detox from spice addiction. It is unlikely you can successfully complete a drug detox from spice in the privacy of your home. A medical drug detox is advised followed immediately by a medically based drug rehab program. The issues related to the underlying cause of addiction remain untouched in a drug detox center. Without drug rehab, relapse prevention, and an individualized after care plan, you run the risk of returning to the drug soon after detox.
