There’s a growing number of mind-altering substances that is causing numerous overdoses and even has some acting like zombies. These substances are called synthetic cannabinoids, with K2 or synthetic marijuana in the forefront.
Synthetic cannabinoids are mind-altering chemicals that are sprayed on dried, shredded plants so they can be smoked or sold as liquids to be used in vapes or e-cigarettes. These cannabinoids are derived from chemicals found in the Indian hemp (Cannabis sativa), where marijuana comes from. Because of their similarities, the synthetic cannabinoids are often called synthetic marijuana or fake weed. Many even market these as safe and legal alternatives to marijuana–which they are absolutely NOT.
