K2 is hideous. I tried it and was flooded with homicidal thoughts and wanted to kill myself to protect others. I felt like a demon entered me and was telling me to kill people. I just kept praying to Jesus asking Him to keep me safe and my family safe. I felt like I had taken something that made me paranoid with audible hallucinations. This shouldn’t be called legal weed but should be called legal death. I fortunately had a moment when I called a friend. She came over right away. She stayed with me until the hallucinations stopped. K2 has literally made me want to give my life back to God. Scariest thing EVER!!!!

I am 16 i used to smoke weed on occasion. Then I started to hear more and more about this crazy legal substance called k2, so I thought that I should try it with a few friends. We went into the woods in my neighborhood smoked 2 joints. Everything around me began to shake and vibrate and I was out of my body. My friends didn’t know what was happening until I went up to my buddy crying begging for him to take me out of here. He took me down the street and I was hardly able to walk and put me in a friends car. He took me to get some food as i was laying in the back seat, I was having terrible hallucinations and thought I was literally going to die. I began talking to myself and saying crazy stuff, when we got back my good friend sat in the back of the truck with me for almost 3 hours while I was hallucinating and crying. After about 1 hour of smoking it my body went completely numb, like so numb if somebody where to torture me I wouldn’t feel it. I had a hallucination I was a statue because i could not move. (not to mention my heart felt like it was beating out of my chest) The experience still sticks with me to this day and its been 3 months, I do not advise anyone to EVER smoke this stuff. I thank my friend for staying with me, he had to hold my hand because I did not know what was real and what was not. Oh yeah and I was hearing things, like people talking about killing me. Then I would call out his name and he assured me he was there and I would snap back into reality for a split second then the hallucinations would continue. If it wasn’t for him I do not know what would of happened.

Ok I have smoked k2 for about a year straight and about 3 grams a day. You probably don’t believe me most people don’t and I would like to say that over these few months it has been getting STRONGER AND MORE POTENT. Up until recently I’ve been fine usually the high is really intense and when i say really intense I mean 10-50x stronger then your average Kindbud. I have so many stories but in all reality k2 does mess up YOUR LIFE, YOUR BRAIN, and mostly YOUR FUTURE. I have gotten EXTREMELY paranoid, EXTREMELY light headed and I have thrown up from it but the high is so addictive you crave it no matter how nuts the last high was. I have had times I can not comprehend ANYTHING, NOTHING AT ALL and my eyes roll in the back of my head and I feel like the whole world is upside down. After every single high on k2 you get EXTREMELY tired. Some people when they smoke k2 it gives them headaches not for me I got over that after the first 5 bowls. Im just putting this out there for teens that may read this I am 15 years old and I recently just got expelled from my Highschool for dealing k2 and now I am done with it. One of the main reasons people smoke it is because they are either on DIVERSION or PROBATION and want to pass drug tests so they smoke k2 for a substitution for weed. K2 has become illegal and will stay that way forever. I think this whole k2 epidemic is over with now that It is illegal. I say if you are on Probation like me and smoke marijuana and do not plan on stopping then smoke weed no matter what b/c sure you may get in trouble for it but honestly would you rather get caught for smoking weed and take that misdemeanor or DIE from K2. Im serious guys Im not here to BS, K2 does kill consider me LUCKY.

Its ugly and I still cry when I recall the visions. He went into such deep hullicinations, he actually thought he was God. For almost 36 hrs, no one was allowed to leave the couch while he sat and preached, among other things—-repeated sayings, look into my eyes, etc—-almost like being held hostage. he actually had taken all the phones too so we could not communicate. Then came the butcher knife—he wanted to show me how invincable he really was. I jumped up many times to try get away, only to be knocked back down. God had to be watching, as the minute he put the knife up to his throat, the seizure began. very bad bad seizure. That is when I broke free and called 911..he forgot I had a phone on my fax machine, thank God. He still is delusional at times, but SLOW progress might be being made. It’s all so new to me, I think I am still in shock. I set out on this journey trying to learn how to help my son, and if there were any long term side effects. No one can answer that for me.

My son smoked a K2 substance called black magic in April of 2010. His roommates had no effects from the experience according to their own reports. We knew one of the roommates well as he and our son had been friends for many years. He was an eagle scout on academic scholarship (I say this to let you know that our son was not a drug user or a drop out type of kid). His roommate called us to apologize and tell us what had happened when Will had an hallucinogenic reaction to the substance. Will had tried to run from them and was not making sense. We told them to take Will to the Emergency Room and get a toxicology screen. It was negative and they sent him home after he stopped hallucinating. During the hallucinations, Will thought that he was in hell and that one of his friends was the devil. He also said he could feel the burning and he was crying and saying, “I am so sorry, I am never going to see you again.” He also said, “I am sorry I am not a Christian.” (I share this piece with you as I have read the story of David and his report to his friends that he was going to hell.) Will was so tormented by the memory of the experience that he could not even go back to school, but came home with us for the rest of the semester. He could not sleep at night and never turned out the lights. We took him to a counselor to help him deal with the fears. He was constantly fearful that he would have the hallucinations again and sometimes would again doubt that he was a Christian.

One and one half month later he had a reoccurrence of the hallucinations without having any contact with the substance again. We were told by a psychiatrist that his brain had some damage to it from the first time and that several factors led to the episode. For one thing, he was at a wedding where he had been a groomsman and had been drinking alcohol at the rehearsal dinner the night before. In addition, unbeknownst to us, he had been for a weeks time, sneaking beer into his bedroom at night and drinking it to try to get to sleep. He said he was always too afraid to sleep and the beer would initially make him more afraid and then it would help him sleep. This second episode lasted over 24 hours and led to his hospitalization in a psychiatric facility where he was given antipsychotics to decrease the stimulation of the damaged part of the brain.

When Will came home again the fear continued as more agoraphobia. He would not leave the house or go anywhere without his parents. The antipsychotics made him sleep at night, but he was fearful and nonfunctional during the daytime. His psychiatrist put him on Lexapro to help him deal with the fears. We had a psychiatrist and counselor working with him, but he just seemed to get worse. This lasted seven months.

In the last month, as we have started to wean off the antipsychotic drugs and the Lexapro. The result has been that he has been much more normal. He has been doing normal things with isolated times of heightened anxiety that he has learned to deal with on his own. He is still not ready to go back to school or work, but is really close. We plan to get him completely off the drugs soon as the psychiatrist says that the injury to his brain should be healed now. His psychiatrist also says he should stay away from alcohol or caffeine as those things can trigger a reaction to the part of the brain that has been damaged.

This has been very devastating to us all, but we are so thankful that he is alive. When he had the hallucinations, he did try to do things that would have killed him like trying to jump out of the car when it was on the freeway. He was just trying to stop the torment or the situation and said he just needed to run. We have to remember what could have been and we are so thankful.

She did not come home and did not answer her phone which is not like her. We called her phone all night and were so worried. At 7am we started calling all of her friends and relatives. Her boyfriend called us back to admit they all had taken K2 and Jayde had a terrible reaction. I am a mother first and a nurse second. I started asking how long ago she had taken the drug to which he answered 12 hours ago. What is her condition? He said she was not responding. ( I am sick to my stomach at this point). Then I learn she had been in a seizure like state for almost all of those 12 hours. I am beyond angry at this point. I tell him to load her in the car and meet me and her father at the hospital. When she arrived I took one look at her and wanted to cry but I did not have time my nursing experience kicked in. She was non responsive, was having a seizure, agitated and her eyes were rolling back into her head. A parents worst nightmare. We were able to bring her home a couple of hours later when she became responsive and she slept for 5 hours after she came home. She slept 14 hours today. She says she would never do the drug again and is cured of ever wanting to try others. The drug gave her hallucinations like bats where chasing her, people were trying to kill her, and, she felt like she died 20 times. Her body is extremely sore due to the prolonged seizure activity. She has a left leg drag due to an injured hip from the seizure activity and states she is having a hard time thinking. She also complains of eye pain and is having trouble seeing. My heart is broke and I am so upset but thankful she is alive. She could have died and the boys she was with did nothing for those 12 hours letting her stay in that state which makes me so angry. We are just praying she gets her full cognitive abilities back along with her eye function. I WOULD ADVISE ANY PERSON LOOKING TO TAKE THIS DRUG TO STAY AWAY FROM IT AND SAVE YOURSELF THE PAIN.

I smoked k2 summit which is supposed to be the strongest last night with some friends and I had a terrible reaction. I felt like I was outside of my body and had late reactions I knew I wasn’t feeling well so I went outside with my boyfriend and told him I felt sick to my stomach and needed to leave. As I walked back into the door I lost complete control of my body and started convulsing uncontrollably and lost all verbal skills. My boyfriend tried to talk me out of whatever was happening. This lasted for 5 mins. And was motionless with all my limbs feeling like they were asleep for 10 mins. we weren’t sure if I had a mild seizure or an out of control panic attack. But after I laid in bed for thirty mins and felt weak but okay. After talking to friends I found out things I had forgotten. They told me before I went on the ground convulsing I said my heart was beating really fast and felt if it was going to pop out. They also felt really weird and didn’t like it. I think k2 us much worse than weed. Weed has never had a side effect in me besides being hungry!! So If I were you I wouldn’t recommend it at all. It is very strong and messes with your emotions. And I did not like the effect.

I ended up trying it bc my brother had it! and he smokes all the time so he didn’t know if it was actually working. and i never do any kind of drug I stopped like 2 years ago. but I had the worst trip it didn’t feel like it was working for 10 minutes then it kicked in people say I turned white and my lips started shading to blue couldn’t breath I was shaking my heart was pounding. I was sweating I felt like I was on meth I do not recommend it to anyone.

My son also had a severe reaction to this herbal blend. He is 18, a senior, and thought that it was a great alternative to pot because it is not illegal. He was screaming, vomiting, and freaking out positive that he was dying. I called 911 and the paramedics had no idea what they were treating him for. All they saw was a healthy young man with a heart rate in excess of 180, and severe vomiting which quickly led to dry heaves. By the time he was in the ER and hooked up, his heart rate slowed, but his blood pressure was 67/26…when he left the hospital the next day it was still only 110/42. Aside from the horrific nightmare that seemed equal to hallucinogenics, he is extremely sore and tired.

I saw the packaging of the K2…which is a JOKE! There is a cheap little sticker that says K2 and in smaller letters “Not for consumption” I get that whoever puts this out thinks that they have an “out” when it comes to being responsible for people smoking this crap, but they obviously know what they are doing because there is no company name, address, ingredients, directions on they expect people to use their product, etc.

I just found out about this junk within the past few days because of our horrible scare! I can promise you that there are more and more people that this will happen to. Do we have to wait until some kids die because their friends won’t get them medical treatment due to fear of getting in trouble?

Ever heard the expression “Pretending is as bad as doing” There is a reason marijuana is illegal, as there should be the same reasons (if not more) for this knock off crap. It is dangerous. Those that wrote in to say that they are so clever in knowing how much to smoke so it is not a problem….I just say to you “YET.”

I have to say I support the ban on K2, and before the smokers rip me apart, I actually support marijuana legalization.

K2, however, is not marijuana. In fact, it doesn’t even say on the package what it is! Synthetic cannabinoid, sure, but god only knows what these companies are putting in the mix. I am a graduate student that used to like the occasional joint in college but due to my doctoral candidacy I won’t risk enjoying it anymore. Thus leading to my interest in trying K2. Folks, I had a moderate amount, maybe 4 hits of the standard K2 and I have never been so miserable. Absolutely terrible feeling, heart rate in excess of 90 bpm at rest, increased muscle spasticity, feelings of overwhelming panic. I don’t think I was far from the girl who had a seizure.

Bottom line, we haven’t studied this and it is not being regulated by anyone. Unfortunately marijuana is illegal and so many kids are going to be looking for an alternative, but PLEASE exercise caution if you are going to try K2. It is extremely potent and I would absolutely reconsider.

I fully support marijuana legalization, but my reactions to K2 have been extremely frightening and I hope that pot supporters will wake up and realize that this stuff is something different altogether.

I started smoking K2 about a month ago. 2 weeks ago, I had a brief (30 minute) experience where I was extremely cold, shivering uncontrollably and had a hard time speaking. Anxiety turned to terror, and I eventually wrote it off as a panic attack due to a vicious cycle of fear. I continued smoking, thinking I just needed to control it mentally.

Last night, I had a much worse reaction. I spent 2 hours experiencing muscle twitches all over my body, lost all color in my face, had clammy hands and feet, and was terrified beyond description. I was certain I would die, or at least end up in the hospital. The thoughts got a LOT worse than that, which again led to panic-attack-like reactions. I skipped dinner and had no appetite. I couldn’t relax, couldn’t get my body under control. Eventually it passed but it was the worst drug experience I have ever had. Even typing this, my hands are shaking and cold, and I’m not sure whether that means I’m having some kind of relapse or flashback or what.

Please don’t make the mistake of thinking this stuff is legal marijuana. It’s not. It can do harm you like it did to me. BE CAREFUL.-listen to my experience.

As a longtime pot smoker I thought I would give K2 a try. Whatever blend the headshop sold to us was out of control. Of the three of us who used we smoked one bowl (were warned not to dose higher). 3 rips in I was out. I had a miserable high, the experience was more like PCP than marijuana. Space and time were totally messed up. Imagine seeing everything in repeating snapshots ordered 6,3,5,2,4,1 again and again. It was horrible. My blood pressure and bpm were off the chart. No idea what a seizure is like, but this had to have been close. My friends complained of unpleasant highs but were not nearly as incapacitated as I was. After two hours it was more like a normal high, and I was relieved to have a grip on reality. Day after, no headache and a little loopy. Capable of intense concentration on any one thing for a short period time, but move from task to task to keep interest. Complete lucidity came 24 hrs later.

I tried K2 Spice on Friday for the first time. I took 3 hits and felt great and weird but in a good way then i took 2 more hits and could barely walk. I walked down my friends stairs sat on my knees by a chair and instantly fell over and blacked out. I started hallucinating and i was seeing the craziest things and after awhile i started to question is this life? As i was surrounded by weird colors crashing into each other and then all these creepy things going on in my head. I forgot what life was i forgot how to live i forgot what people were and i thought i was forever damned to this place between life and death. As i was hallucinating while being blacked out i starting having a seizure and my eyes rolled to the back of my head and my body was spasming uncontrollably i couldn’t breath at all. My friends heard me choking and came over to me and noticed that i was somewhere i was not supposed to be they saw me seizure and heard me choking on puke. They lifted me and put me on my hands and knees and i puked, gagged, and dry heaved for at least an hour and a half. Not to mention i was still in and out of hallucinations so while i would be puking over a bucket i would hallucinate and my head would drop down and i wouldn’t know it but id be choking myself with the bucket. They laid me down on a couch to prevent me from choking myself and i crashed when i woke up i felt extremely paranoid and didn’t want to get out of my car after driving home in fear of someone waiting outside to kill me. I would not go in the dark that night ether. The next morning i woke up and cried for half the day and didn’t feel like myself i had all these emotions and then i would have none like i was just blah. Now i have troubles being alone and falling asleep at night all the time i still cry whenever i think about it or talk about my experience. I recommend you do not take K2. And i note that i do not do other drugs and did not mix this with other drugs or alcohol. I have forever been scarred by this experience and forever have scared my friends into never doing it again after they almost saw me die

I smoked some of this for the first time with a few old friends last night. They couldn’t find any weed but a friend brought some K2 over. I had such severe hallucinations from it, as well as seizure like symptoms, that I NEVER will try it again!

I feel like I have died and gone to HELL. I have no other explanation than that. After taking this, it was a good 2 1/2 hours before I stopped having the horrible hallucinations of death, hell, the devil, etc. My husband and friends tell me that I was rolling back and forth on the floor and became extremely violent. I am not usually a violent person! I guess I even punched my friend’s husband when he was trying to help me. NEVER AGAIN! Please outlaw this drug!

This k2 junk needs to be against the law. as a previous comment stated, u never know what you are getting as far as potency. back in the day, pot got u high and that was about it. my son tried k2 and could not control his hands nor mouth, then came the collapse to the floor and then vomiting several times till the dry heaves began for at least 45 minutes. his heart rate was very high. this is a VERY NON SAFE mixture. a local “head shop” is selling it and allowing kids to buy it per gram. PETITION TO GET THESE STORES CLOSED AN THIS TRASH OFF THE STREETS!
____________________________________________________

Last night I faced death for the first time. I only took 2 hits, and my head started pounding and my heart started racing. I was 100% certain that this was it. My ears started ringing and my eye sight was blurring. I told my boyfriend to get the keys to go to the hospital, but that’s the last thing I remember. Please don’t do this drug. Smoke weed, eat shrooms…but DON’T go through this hell!!

I spent all day today tripping balls of of this stuff to even compare it to marijuana is a joke it is NOTHING like weed. I definitely spent the last 6 hours feeling like dying and walking around outside because i felt like dying the second i sat down inside… This stuff is evil and i would gladly put money on it that it is not safe in any way. I’m just glad i didn’t start going into a seizure like other kids did i have been tripping on it for about 14 hours now and i just want this k2 to end.

Background: I used to be a big time, high all day every day, smoker, and now I only smoke occasionally, tolerance of an elephant, and love the feeling! With this being said, I have to say that this was a CRAZY experience!!! I tried K2 Summit for the first time last night. I smoked it out of my hookah. Unfortunately, it was crazy in a BAD way… now I’m not trashing, and I know people react differently to foreign chemicals, but this was a horrible experience, honestly, the worst in my life to date. The beginning was great. I took 3 rips from my hookah, and was almost immediately high… an amazing high at first. Then I sat down to watch some TV and the experience went downhill from there. I started getting super anxious, to the point that I couldn’t sit down. Then I notice that my heart was beating terribly fast and felt like it was pumping out of my chest. I asked my GF to take a pulse (she is a nursing student) and my heart rate was out of control, like I was running a sprint on the treadmill. I became extremely cold, shivering, my hands, feet, nose, ears, etc. as far as extremities go, were frozen like there was no blood flowing to them (evidenced by the extreme white appearance and he clinch and release test…to see blood disbursement). I had an extremely hard time breathing, and I actually had to remind myself to breath, as a few time I noticed that that I was holding my breath or forgetting to breath. I felt like I was dying and I wouldn’t let my eyes close even though they were extremely heavy because I REALLY thought I was dying. I was having crazy conversation with myself in my head, and I was hallucinating like crazy (I never had these type of effects from bud). My GF wanted to call the paramedics and I told her not to. She was asking friends (former paramedics/nurses/nursing students) and they all told her to call 911 or take me to the ER. I couldn’t move from the fetal like positioned, wrapped in a few blankets, that I had worked into. When I did try to move, I felt nausea and extreme dizziness. The experience from beginning (of bad) to end lasted about 2 ½ hours. I felt pretty crazy hallucinations, like I was dying for an hour… I had the infamous “life flashing before my eyes” moment, and how my family would mourn my death.

I smoked marijuana for 10 years. I smoked regular marijuana, hydro, purple, kush, indo, white widow, etc. I’ve smoked marijuana in the weakest and most potent types. I started smoking k2 a week after quitting marijuana, it was ok for a month. I’m a normal, educated, hard-working, professional 25 year old female. One day I took my normal dose of K2, and I began to have a severe panic attack, increased heart beat, hallucinations. I believe that Asians, who are the one selling the most of this product in their stores, are beginning to make their own K2, & selling it to make more money. Plus, the packages are not sealed when you buy it, some are, but the K2 brand isn’t sealed. It could easily be opened by the store owners, and tampered with!!! I don’t know, but this stuff is dangerous. If I didn’t have a strong mind, and if my boyfriend wasn’t with me that day, I could have easily committed suicide or freaked out even worse!!!!! I quit, K2 has caused me to not take any drugs ever again, not even my precious natural marijuana!
