Eight out of the nine products tested that showed positive results for 4-CCB were branded under the name “Yolo CBD Oil.” Out of the 52 reported poisoning cases, 33 of the individuals had taken Yolo CBD.
Roberta Horth is an officer with the CDC’s Epidemic Intelligence Service and says, “Synthetic cannabinoids, such as 4-CCB, act on the same cannabinoid receptors as THC, but the effects of synthetic cannabinoids can be unpredictable and severe or even life-threatening. Based on reported side-effects of 4-CCB in case-patients, they appear to be more severe than THC. Fatalities following the use of 4-CCB have been reported in Europe.”
According to the CDC, some of the effects of synthetic cannabinoids include:
Beware of Synthetic CBD: Synthetic Cannabinoids Aren’t Just Made to Mimic the Effects of THC
Synthetic cannabinoids first became available in the U.S. in 2008 and their use has since surged across the country. But synthetic cannabinoids are not the same thing as the cannabinoids that come from the natural plant — and they can be very, very dangerous.
In 2017, several people in Utah became seriously ill from a poison outbreak linked to synthetic cannabinoids. Last spring, there were 56 reports of severe bleeding in Chicago and other areas across Illinois where synthetic cannabinoids were suspected to be the culprit. Two of these 56 people died in what a spokesperson for the Illinois Department of Public Health said was “the first time we’ve seen an outbreak of this magnitude in the area.”
There’s been little research on exactly what synthetic cannabinoids do to the body. What is known, though, is that they’re extremely dangerous. And unlike natural cannabinoids like THC and CBD, they’ve not only been shown to contain a myriad of negative side effects but are also known to be psychologically and physically addictive.
Keeping track of the chemicals used in synthetic cannabinoids is difficult because manufacturers are constantly changing their chemical composition to stay “legal.” Because the chemical composition of many synthetic cannabinoids in unknown and constantly changing, synthetic cannabinoid products can contain substances that have the potential to cause radically different effects than the user was hoping for.
In other words, synthetic CBD is an API (Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient) chemically similar to the naturally created hemp-derived CBD. Like many isolates, it takes a form of a crystalline powder that will require combining with a carrier oil later on.
Spice is essentially a synthetic marijuana that isn’t regulated. But the active ingredients of Spice are not simply just the same as Marijuana’s active ingredient, which is THC. Most times, synthetic marijuana ingredients are unidentified to the consumer and could be harmful. Even so, teens often use Spice and do so legally.
CBD Vs Spice – Differences Between Synthetic CBD And Natural CBD
Theoretically, Spice’s effects on the body are the same as those of Marijuana. They interact with the same brain’s receptors as the THC from Marijuana does. But Spice’s effects are usually much more intense. Meaning, the psychoactive effects are more likely to cause the user to have a ‘bad trip.’ That includes increased chances of experiencing the aforementioned side-effects more frequently. Likewise, their intensity rises, making them dangerous for, say, people with heart conditions.
One of the things that draw teens to it is that it is much readily available. Spice has no regulations placed upon it. In fact, you can legally use all kinds of synthetic Marijuana. However, the concentrations of synthetic cannabinoids inside of them is a concern. So far, there’s also no regulation placed on the amount of synthetic cannabinoids used. Meaning, it is legal to consume something potentially deadlier than the safer, natural alternative.
The promise of hemp CBD’s therapeutic effects causes greedy companies to produce a synthetic CBD version. ‘Spice’ is the name of one of those synthetics. They claim that their process does enhance efficacy, potency, and pharmacokinetics. They also make substantial profits from a naturally-occurring substance that has holistic benefits.
