I started using fake weed in November 2013 because I was told it wasn’t harmful and wouldn’t show up on a drug test. I found a shop that sold different kinds that was in another state because it was banned in my state. The first hit was the most amazing feeling I ever felt and was instantly hooked. I loved how it made you feel numb and not care about anything . I was driving eighty miles one way to get it. Nothing or no one could stop me even the love of my life. I lost my job pretty quickly due to the fact that I just wanted to get high all the time. Once you get that first hit then the rest of the time you are chasing that high. I smoked it off a can cause rolling it in a joint did nothing for me. Due to that I developed a chronic cough that would result in coughing up blood. You would think that would have made me quit but nope still continued with it. I lost my apartment due to the act my landlady found me smoking one day in the apartment. It was devastating because I lived with my boyfriend which gratefully she didn’t kick him out. Also all I did was wait for him to leave for work and go to sleep so I could get high. He despised it and didn’t like me doing it. So my usual day started with him leaving for work and me sitting at the computer smoking to the point I would pass out then wake up before he got home ususally bout an hour. Needless to say I never cleaned or did anything except smoke and sleep. Then just wait for him to go to sleep so I could continue to get high. I went outside and sat in my car cause everytime I would do it when he was home no matter how careful he always smelled it. and would come in and bust me . What was so scary is that this stuff is not the same as pot. When you smoke pot and decided to stop you don’t have withdrawls as severe as this stuff. Made me physically sick to stop and well that made me not stop and keep doing it wasn’t even about getting high after a while it was to avoid getting sick although there were times when I did do it I got sick as well. This stuff is truly the devil in disguise and I advised anyone to never try it cause if you have one hit there is a great chance you will be addicted immidetly. My day of clarity came when I was living in a extended stay hotel and after being up all night smoking the next morning I was hit with the worst anxiety attack ever. I felt like I was having a heart attack and called the paramedics. I told them I was smoking fake weed and they got me into a great rehab that was free. I got a lot out of it and yes had one relapse since but it wasn’t the same after rehab and I didn’t enjoy it sooo I knew then that it was over. I still crave it but the knowledge I have now about it keeps me away from it. I urge anyone who has the slightest interest in smoking it to do research before it may just save your life or save you from one nasty habit.
