My story about synthetic marijuana! It started around a year ago. This might seem a little confusing at first, but I’ll explain more in the story. One of my friends showed me this thing called CBD.
I looked it up and did some research on it, and everything looked safe, so I tried it. He had this small vaporizer pen that we hit. Like everyone says, the first inhale then exhale, you will feel an intense rush.
My eyes instantly felt heavy, and my head almost felt stuffed. At that time, I didn’t know that you cannot get high from CBD. Cannabidiol or CBD is a cannabinoid that is found in the marijuana plant.
There are over 60 cannabinoids, but the ones that are most known is CBD and THC. Now THC is the cannabinoid that is psychoactive or gets you high; yeah, everyone knows that.
So, we vaped this “CBD.” I have smoked marijuana before, and I did notice the high was different than this “CBD.” It didn’t bother me though because I knew CBD was a heath benefit.
Months passed, and more vape shops opened around. I went to those stores and tried their CBD. No one’s CBD got me high. I was confused; I was questioning why this is? Potency, maybe? So we vaped!
It’s been a few months, gone through probably about $500 of this fake “CBD” stuff. I still didn’t know too much at this time, but I heard about this weird thing called K2, Spice, Scooby Snacks, and Synthetic Marijuana.
I did some research and found out about the quick high, and the great, short time. It was a little high, and I did get great quick. Marijuana takes about 5-10 minutes to kick in. K2, for me, it’s after the first inhale and exhale it kicks in.
I was suspicious and confronted my friends I vaped it with. We were all about 50-50 with it. We, though, hey maybe some THC slipped in with the CBD? Or it’s just because we are vaping, so the high doesn’t last as long. So, we vaped.
I vaped it daily but was still pretty sketched out. Eventually, I said no, I am not buying any more of this. I took personal drug tests for K2 and THC, and both were negative. I couldn’t figure it out. I was off, on, off, on and so on. I didn’t feel addicted, but something was pulling me back to it.
I started smoking weed again. And this is when everything went uphill. Yes, I said upward. It was good. It was almost instant relief from K2, an actual high that lasted 4 to 6 hours.
The urge for the fake “CBD” or K2 was nearly completely gone in less than a week. I started making it work on time, doing better at work, I bought a new car, earning more money, the boss is happier with my job, and I’m becoming more social and making new friends.
Life has never been better; I feel much more motivated. Honestly, I think my depression I been suffering with since I turned a teen (around 13) is going away as well.
Alright, around current time, about a year later, I found some great websites and forums on K2. I’ve talked with people. Hours and hours of research later!! Now, I am fully 100% sure that this fake “CBD” stuff is K2.
Those friends still vape it, and one of them is so addicted to it, that he is nearly 500$ in debt to me. Guess where that 500$ went to. He has been so tight on money that he has turned to cigarettes and is now addicted to that too.
I feel so sorry for him because he can’t stop. He is destroying his body and brain from these stupid drugs. I care about him, and I will do everything and anything to help him.
Please, if you ever see a friend in trouble with K2. Get them help asap! K2 kills. Legalize Cannabis and get rid of that fake stuff. Honestly, I feel that is the only way.
