Synthetic marijuana is a psychoactive herbal and chemical product that, when consumed or smoked, mimics the effects of cannabis. The brand names K2 and Spice are the most common.

These names have become general trademarks used to refer to any synthetic marijuana product.

Synthetic marijuana may also be seen as “herbal incense”; however, you may also see it as a “herbal smoking blend.” In either case, the users usually smoke it.
