At Zoom Testing we’ve written a lot about Spice in the last few years. Initially we talked about it’s status as one of many New Psychoactive Substances and it’s change in status under the law, with some calling for it to become a Class A drug.
More recently we have looked at how Spice has become a drug of choice in many prisons and how towns have also had to cope with the rise of the “Spice Zombies”. Spice was even mentioned in our blog post of 2019 as one or our Top Five Trends in UK Drug Testing.
This article will tell you a bit more about Spice in 2019. Drug tests for Spice are now readily available and are being used by private individual to help monitor vulnerable people, as well as institutions such as prisons that are working hard to keep use of the drug under control.
What is Spice?
Spice or K2 is a Class B drug that is made up from a mixture of herbs and spices, which have been sprayed with synthetic cannabinoids. These Synthetic cannabinoids are chemically similar to THC, the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis. The effects of the drug on the person using it – good and bad – are very similar to cannabis.
Spice or K2 is often sold as a ‘herbal’ smoking mixture.
There are many different types of synthetic cannabinoids, of which Spice or K2 is just one. Many of the drugs are illegal and are classified as Class B drugs, meaning that they are illegal to own, use or distribute.
You can never be sure what is in a smoking mixture so it’s often hard to tell whether it is illegal or not or even if it contains any synthetic cannabinoids at all!
