What is “Spice?”
The terms Spice, K2, Fake Pot, Mr. Nice Guy Incense, Genie and many other street names refer to commercially available products that have been sprayed with research chemicals called synthetic cannabinoids but do not contain any cannabis (marijuana) components. The cannabinoid-like chemicals were developed in research laboratories to study neuronal receptors found in the body and brain. These products are generally sold as incense, but are intended to be smoked for the psychoactive effects. Very little (if anything) is known about the health and safety of these research compounds. The compounds themselves are considered contraband in many European countries and their possession and use are also prohibited by an increasing number of local governments within the United States. Most synthetic cannabinoids (and the products that contain them) however, are not currently classified as controlled substances by the U.S. federal government (as of Sept 2010). The DEA has identified these compounds as “Drugs and Chemicals of Concern”. JWH-018 and JWH-073 have been identified as additives in various herbal products such as Spice and K2. Although these products are marketed as “incense-not for human consumption, they are commonly smoked for the psychoactive properties associated with the synthetic cannabinoids. Users report perceived effects similar to marijuana, but with shorter duration of action. Once consumed, these compounds are rapidly metabolized in the body and excreted in the urine as a series of related metabolites.
Is a positive result defensible?
Yes, it is, when collected and analyzed using chain-of-custody protocols. A specimen is considered positive if there is a match of at least 6 metabolic compounds when compared with known compounds found in reference samples.
How are positive results reported?
A positive result will be reported a “POSITIVE; Metabolite profile consistent with the use of JWH-018 and/or JWH-073 is present”.
Synthetic cannabinoids are not found in the standard laboratory drug test. This is a specialized testing procedure for these popular synthetics.
