Synthetic Cannabinoids (Spice, K2)


The active chemicals in cannabis are the cannabinoids (THC, CBD, CBN, and so on). In the past few years it has been possible to synthetically replicate these in laboratories, as well as novel variants of them that do not exist naturally in the plant and other cannabinoid receptor agonists. One of the most popular commercial products to have emerged is ‘Spice’ (and its variants such as Silver, Gold and Diamond), although other brands such as ‘K2’ and ‘Black Mamba’ have recently become more widely available.
