The Fatal Truth about Synthetic Marijuana

You might have heard of it by one of its names: Bliss, Blaze, fake weed, etc. Either way, synthetic marijuana can lead to deadly consequences. [7deadlymag.com](http://www.7deadlymag.com/kush/synthetic-marijuana/) outlines some key points for us.

  • Not quite real pot

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

  • Misnomer

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    The name makes it sound like it's the same as natural marijuana, but in reality, it's a chemical compound that is used to target specific cannabinoid receptors, making it 100x more potent.

  • All about the dosage

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Jeff Lapoint, MD, explains that "the first rule of toxicology is, the dose makes the poison". Meaning that a high enough dosage in any substance can lead to health consequences.

  • Varies by batch?

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Synthetic weed constantly evolves to slip through legal loopholes, usually made in an underground lab through a crude process, so it's hard to be sure exactly how potent your batch is.

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Synthetic marijuana is not marijuana. It’s an entirely different drug and an unchecked case of false advertising.
