I had smoked spice on and off for a long period of time.
My first blend was called ‘pine‘.
Felt exactly like weed, but lasted 30 minutes. I had 2.2g of this blend, but my friend loved it so much I just gave it to him. Smoked 8-10 times a day, no withdrawals.
I was lucky that time.
Later on, I tried a blend called Scooby Snax that was made before the 2012 ban.
Didn’t last long but I enjoyed the high. I rarely smoked this one, but my experiences felt worthwhile and amazing. Only had a gram or so.
Fast forward to this year, after the 2012 ban. Had my reasons.
Got 5g of AK47 blueberry. First smoke was an OD.
Forgot what happened before I awakened from my blackout confused and gripping my brother while sitting on my bed. He was furiously punching me.
He later told me that I walked into his room, screamed, and then clenched my teeth.
I went back into my room and to my bed. Had a seizure. While seizing and screaming, suffocating on my pillow.
My brother turned me over so I faced up.
That’s when I returned from the blackout.
Afterwards, my head felt like it was hit hard. I continued to smoke this blend in lesser amounts.
It nearly ran out, so I got 12g of 2ndG Scooby Snax.
Smoked it a lot, 15-30 times a day or more.
OD’d once, puked blood and screamed without knowing that I was screaming until I was told. Brother found my spice and stole it.
Had horrible withdrawals, and lost 8 lbs in two days. Looked like shit, puked, the works. Couldnt play guitar for shit.
I relearned guitar.
A month later, I bought 12g Bomb Marley Jungle Juice.
Weak high, and when I kicked it up a notch, my eyes hurt and I had some leg spasms.
Never did enough to OD, I was careful. I stopped eventually because it was boring.
I work out a lot. A few days ago, I decided to do a test run.
One day, I did my preacher curl sets. A plate on each side for 10 reps. With the bar, this was a total of 115lbs.
Smoked spice twice a day for 2 days.
Came back to the gym after a day of break with a preacher curl of 105 for 8 reps, and the 115 was only for 4.
Will test this again later, to see if the weakness persists, but I want to see if short term recovery is significant. Ate the same thing both times.
Will never smoke spice again.
