Withdrawal from spice can be incredibly unpleasant, leading to panic, palpitations, vomiting and depression as little as two hours after stopping the drug.
Spice is cheap, hard to detect, has hugely variable levels of potency and comes with some severe adverse effects.

The potency of these chemicals outstrips that of most recreational drugs, often by a factor of an active dose of street heroin might be ddaths and a typical line of Beautiful lady seeking real sex Buford might contain mg, but most variants of spice are active at just 1mg, making accurate dosing impossible.

Many treatment services are resistant to naloxone, for example, even though it saves many lives every year, due to the sheer cost and lack of funds.
For example, THCV is a cannabis derivative shown to have anti-epileptic properties and has potential to help with obesity, anxiety and schizophrenia.

Overall there has not been a great deal of effort put in to research and develop antidotes for spice, with the government being dismissive at best.

Because spics chemicals used in them have no medical benefit and a high potential for abuse, authorities have made it illegal to sell, buy, or possess some of these chemicals. Because the chemical composition of many synthetic cannabinoid products is unknown and may change from batch to batch, these products are likely to contain substances that cause dramatically different effects than deatbs user might expect. Synthetic cannabinoid users report some effects similar to those produced by marijuana: elevated mood altered perception—awareness of Wanting sex tonight Ban Thao Sala objects and conditions symptoms of psychosis—delusional or disordered thinking detached from reality Psychotic effects include:.

Flickr — TJ Another potential obstacle in using a spice antidote to help people and prevent deaths is the paramedics and treatment services themselves and whether there would be enthusiastic uptake of the usage of the antidote. Whilst rimonabant has a high potency and selectivity for the CB1 receptor, if the binding affinity for the spice causing the overdose is stronger, rimonabant may not be able to be an effective antagonist.

The synthetic cannabis, ly a legal high, featured on 60 death certificates in England and Wales last year. Such enquiries should be made to: mortality ons.
The relevant team can be contacted at CrimeandPoliceStats homeoffice. However, regardless of this, investigating these could kickstart the research into spice antidotes and lead to an effective antidote to be developed. Synthetic cannabinoids were needed partly due to legal restrictions on natural cannabinoidswhich make them difficult to obtain for research.
It is, rather, a natural and inevitable — indeed rational — response to a systemic failure in social care and drugs laws, with poverty at the ultimate root.
