Welcome To Spice Addiction Support

Quitting Spice & K2 may be harder than you think.

Over the last 6 years, I have personally witnessed the drug “Spice” – also called synthetic marijuana, synthetic weed, herbal incense, herbal potpourri, K2, fake weed, synthetic pot, noids, synth and fweed – go from relative obscurity to being sold at newspaper stands, head shops, online stores and convenience stores all around the world.

I have also seen it affect thousands of lives, including mine.

I was a heavy Spice user for over 4 years. I let it control every moment of my life. I had no idea what it was doing to me.

One day, I decided to read other people’s stories about their experiences with synthetic marijuana around the web. That was when I realized there were thousands of people out there just like me.

That’s why I decided to start this community of people helping one another overcome their addiction to Spice.

My number one goal with this site is to help inform people about the dangers of Spice – especially its addictive nature.

I want people going through what I went through to know they’re not alone in their battle to overcome synthetic marijuana addiction.

I have been working tirelessly to put together the world’s largest collection of information about synthetic marijuana, Spice & K2 addiction. You can browse this site to learn:

People from all around the world have shared more than 1,000 personal stories of spice addiction, withdrawal and side effects. Countless more have used the site to gain a new perspective about recovery and resources that are out there to help.

Unlike other forums, participation in our support group is anonymous. We use the Disqus commenting system to keep the trolls, haters and spammers at bay.

After helping hundreds of thousands of people who have come here looking for information about synthetic marijuana, I’m absolutely blown away by the helpful responses and the depth of compassion and support offered by the people who participate on this site.

Not only does this site provide useful and life-changing resources for users of Spice & K2, but we also try to help families, friends and coworkers of synthetic cannabinoid addicts find help for the people they care about.

I want to personally thank you for being here. Welcome! I truly hope that you find what you’re looking for.

I only ask one thing from you: if you find the help you need on this site, then please come back and return the favor by participating in our support group.

For some, there is no other place to turn.

  • I'm so proud of myself . This last year has been the hardest I ever been. I've had. 5 major life changing events happened within a matter of 4 months. I have survived joblessness, homelessness and death of an immediate family member. No my vehicle breaking down. Being evicted thru no fault of my own. The only family member that stood with me passed away so I was left with no family at the holidays. Being arrested and going to jail. I went in to my Old Spice. Shop my number one go to a, he always had it for me. He would even front it for me. To get cigarettes. I was so proud of myself, he asked me if I wanted any spice. I told him no I been clean for over 2 years now and didn't want it and walked out. May seem like it wasn't a lot . But to me. It was a huge. Milestone for me. To deal with all I've been going through and to me, it just wasn't worth it anymore. I had no problem saying no, I'm clean, I don't want it. I'm patting myself on the back.

  • Excellent story I'm so glad you were able to make it . Keep up with the good work. Its a hard road.

  • I have been clean off this devil drug since 5/17/15 .. and don't think I don't get the thought of using again because I do.. but instead of manifesting my time of the thought of using, I get busy and stay busy.

    When I started using, I did it to deal with my problems.. the high made me not care about my problems (job loss, recently incarcerated heroin-dependent fiance and trying to raise a child under 2) not knowing it was creating one of the biggest problems I have ever had to deal with..

    After super intense using from 2/15-3/15.. I had my first run-in with the "oh, that won't happen to me" line. I had watched my best friend at the time have a seizure right in front of me and the people I was using with.. it was the most terrifying thing I've ever seen. But I just said, "that won't happen to me" and WE KEPT SMOKING IT.. **what the eff were we thinking** We definitely WEREN'T thinking. But after 2-2.5 weeks pass I find myself smoking in my bed around 3a-4a and after using my heart literally felt like it stopped, my chest locked up and I couldn't breathe.. I was so damn scared.. after that wacky experience, I was back at it saying "it won't happen again".

    So I have "quitting" a try. Well, when I would try to quit I would be withdrawing as if I had been shooting heroin for a while (as told from a recovering heroin addict dealing with my BS). Going back and forth between being hot/sweaty to cold/sweaty, vomiting stomach fluid, aches/pains and feeling so weak.

    Fast forward to 5/16/15: I can't remember what bag I had purchased but let's just say it almost took my life.. I had dropped my fiancé (who's clean date is 12/11/14 from heroin) off and thought it'd be a good idea to smoke a bowl and drive home.. All I remember was waking up to the cops and EMS trying to get into my car to make sure I was okay and seeing that my car was up on the sidewalk..

    Spending the weekend in jail let me think about what got me in jail and where I was going with my life.. the fact that I could've killed someone or myself and never seeing my child again, being stupid enough to get behind the wheel of a vehicle and getting high scared the crap out of me.. that was my rock bottom.. I'm glad my mom and fiancé stayed by my side to help me especially with my daughter..

    Ever since then I got pregnant with our second daughter later that year(2015) and we all moved two counties away from the city my fiancé and myself were both going nowhere in. We now have two healthy super smart daughters (3.5yo&18mo), are home owners and own 3 vehicles which all that couldn't have been possible actively using drugs..

    If you're currently struggling; it takes one step to change the path you're on, make that change today! The pain of the withdrawals are worth getting your life back, so don't give into the pain.. if you have family willing to help you, take it! I understand rehab can be overwhelming but there is always IOP (intensive outpatient program) which I called one the second I got out of jail and they were amazing at helping me learn self-coping mechanisms for my anxiety. There's so many resources out there that can help you find help, so utilize them!

    One step and one day at a time! ❤️

  • My son is addicted to spice. He had a seizure last night it was the most frightening thing I have ever witnessed. We honestly thought he had also been scared and it would bri f him to his senses but three hours later he was back at it. He is still in denial and saying he can quit by himself. I know he can’t. He won’t go to a rehab and he keeps finding ways of getting more. He even cycled miles to get it as we won’t let hi use our cars and he had his repossessed. He has pawned everything of any value and justifies pawning his fathers and my stuff by saying he will get it out again so what’s our problem.
    I wish I could help him, this stuff is killing him. I don’t know what to do next.

    • I'm sorry to say but u have to stop doing things for him .my mom to helping me I had to hit rick bottom to go to a detox unit.. but just take him to a detox facilities Don't tell him just go n drop him off n let them do their job . N pray for him .

  • I smoked K2 Spice accidentally exactly a year ago, i am a regular marijuana smoker and my dealer set me up with something "new" so i accidentally smoked it. Within the first week i smoked it i got headaches, but continue smoking and thought it had no correlation. I smoked about an ounce and a half until i realized it wasn't real marijuana, than i relapsed around New year's time. My last smoke i ended up hallucinating, almost committed suicide , instantly i quit i literally spent 9 months in a twilight and thought my life would never revert back to the way it used to be. Here is how you WILL get out of this shit hole. I'm not sure what they put in K2 , its probably mercury, or lead , but Eat completely Clean, eat everything organic , Eat Vegetables 3 times a day , Get loads of Fiber i recommend 2 -3 avocados a day , Do Not put anything else in your body that does not grow on tree, only mother nature can cure you from this poisoning that you're in. Detox yourself , Drink a gallon of water everyday, Do Cardio about 4 times a week, buy all sorts of detoxifiers, i recommend coconut charcoal , there are tons of choices on I've been doing this for a month consistently and literally snapped out of this maze that i was in and was able to come back to reality. I had spent 9 months sweating every night and now i don't sweat so much, you can come out of this shit hole with a healthy lifestyle choice, it seems those chemicals are trapped in your body and you need to get it out because it affects your central nervous system in a MAJOR WAY and if you keep it in your system you will certainly damage yourself.

    • Thanks for writing this please email me at I would love to learn how to eat all organic the cheapest way I can I have found it very costly here in the stores we have a small income for food and I would love to know how it’s going for you with the detox you bought on amazon

    • Can you please email me I tried synthetic back in 2010 didn't notice any health concerns. Tried it again in 2015 and feel like its still somehow stuck in my system. Need advice? also would like to here more about your progress. Thanks

  • So sorry to hear your story...

    And I apologize for not approving your story, sooner (got stuck in our spam filter).
