Detox and Withdrawal From K2/Spice

Detox and Withdrawal From K2/Spice

It is not uncommon for heavy synthetic marijuana users to experience symptoms of withdrawal when they attempt to significantly reduce or end use of the substance. Synthetic marijuana withdrawal symptoms generally onset within hours of your last interaction with the drug and typically last for three to five days.  There are many withdrawal symptoms which synthetic marijuana users will possibly experience when they reduce use of the drug or stop smoking for a period of time. While some may experience severe withdrawal symptoms, some users will experience none. Although death is not likely among those withdrawing from synthetic marijuana, the user may feel as if they're going to die as a result of the intensity of their withdrawal symptoms. Of significant note, K2 use has resulted in hospitalizations around the nation and K2 overdoses   [get-help]

Signs and Symptoms of K2/Spice Withdrawal

The severity of your withdrawal symptoms is typically contingent upon your amount of use, frequency of use, and physiological factors. The withdrawal symptoms will range from moderate to severe, depending on those factors. The effects of K2 are often brushed aside because the common perception of the drug's "harmlessness" is widespread. Some of the common symptoms of withdrawal experienced by heavy synthetic marijuana users includes:
  • Violent temper tantrums
  • Anxiety
  • Excessive lethargy
  • Cravings
  • Loss of appetite
  • Psychotic episodes
  • Suicidal ideation
  • Depression

  • Hot and cold flashes
  • Extreme lethargy
  • Intense cravings
  • Feeling hungry, but incapable of keeping food down
  • Nausea

If you or a loved one are looking to overcome a synthetic marijuana use problem, seek medical attention rather than trying to do so on your own.
