Spice is a mixture of natural herbs, spices, as well as many addictive chemicals called synthetic cannabinoids that are very similar to that of marijuana, and function as such. Synthetic cannabis some say is another name being used for spice because of the similarities in the chemical compounds contained in both spice and marijuana. These compounds act in the same way THC does as well as many of the other addictive chemicals found in marijuana hence the name "SYNTHETIC CANNABIS": Research is showing now that many more addictive chemicals are contained in the packages of spice than are listed on the label. One of the biggest things you might notice on spice labels and packages if the big Warning that says "NOT INTENDED FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION".
