What is Spice

Spice, also known as K2, fake weed, moon rocks, Yucatan fire and skunk, are synthetic cannabinoids that are sold with claims of imitating the effects of marijuana. They can be smoked or administered orally to experience severe psychological effects for a variable period of time.

How long does K2 stay in your system

While not much is known about the chemicals that are used to prepare this designer drug, the few chemicals that have been studied are, JWH-073 and JWH-018. While JWH-073 has an elimination half-life of 74.2 minutes, JWH-018 has half-life duration of 22.9 minutes.

Per the above findings, it can be concluded that JWH-018 will be eliminated from your system about 2 hours 6 minutes after it was administered, and JWH-073 will be eliminated after around 6 hours 48 minutes.

The above are however, accounts of only two of the chemicals most commonly found in K2, among more than 140 synthetic cannibinoids that are available on the market, as a mixture of any of them. In reality, it is nigh impossible to pinpoint how long a spice or K2 will be in your system; individual factors like the user’s age, build, liver conditions, metabolic rate also play a crucial role in determining the duration for which cannibinoids would linger within the body.
