    I haven't had a reliable bud source for almost 6 months now :(. So I picked up some k2 from one of my friends who bought it from his work, and ive been smoking it about once or twice a month since I got it. But, recently I've been diagnosed with a reoccurring brain tumor. I was just wondering if anybody has read anything on if k2 is not safe?

    According to one article, ' Professor John W. Huffman who first synthesised many of the cannabinoids used in synthetic cannabis (k2) is quoted as saying, "People who use it are idiots." '

    The reason they're idiots because it's synthetic. You don't know what's in it, and you don't know what it will do to you.

    Quite possibly, it caused that tumor of yours.

    Um What? Smoking k2 once or twice a month will not give you a brain tumor you would have to smoke it constantly 3 to 4 times a week over long periods to see any of the long term negative effects hit you. You don't snort one line of coke and now there is a hole in your nose, no it takes years and K2 was definitely not the cause of the tumor. USMC why not just let your doctor know and see what he says

    Dude just keep trying to find a connect. Don't smoke k2. Cuz honestly who knows what the fuck it really is. I've heard some pretty scary stories too. Just find a bud connect.

    Are you over 14? If you are you could get that doctor in a lot of trouble if you specifically told him not to say anything to your parents.

    You don't know that for a fact. Where are your studies to back up your claim? Just because some guy says its "like" marijuana, doesn't mean it is marijuana.

    If you're a minor, your doctor/patient rights are limited. Your parents/guardians have access to all your medical records.

    I'm strongly against K2. I highly recommend you stay away from it for many reasons, but it didn't cause your tumor.

    For one thing, K2 is a full agonist of a certain receptor in your brain (GABA I think). Anyway, regular marijuana is only partial, which means it is less likely to cause panic attacks, whereas K2 is more likely.

    Synthetic is the word that scared me off of it. Humans fuck everything up in nature, this is probably no different.

    You will be hard pressed to find anything on the planet that will give anybody a brain tumor with 1 or 2 uses without killing you first. I'm assuming using common sense.

    Thats right.....you're assuming. This is a MAN MADE substance, cooked up in a lab that you have NO idea as to what the properties of this substance is.
    Question....how many hits of thalidomide did it take to screw up an unborn baby?

    #1 your comparing an unborn baby to a teenager I'm no doctor but I think an unborn is a little more susceptible to chemicals then a teenager.

    #2 Brain tumors and birth defects are two complete different things

    Richardson-Merrell had distributed more than 2.5 million thalidomide tablets to more than 1,000 doctors throughout the United States on what was called an investigational basis. The doctors, in turn, gave thalidomide to nearly 20,000 patients, several hundred of whom were pregnant women

    Looks to me as if you would need multiple doses of the drug to cause birth defects anyway not after 1 usage.

    The stuff is man made so that alone means it isn't perfectly safe. It's also a full agonist for the CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors (cannabis is a partial agonist), so negative effects like anxiety, agitation, and paranoia can be stronger than with mj. In high doses it can even cause seizures or convulsions. It's also been reported that it can negatively affect mj tolerance levels, even after ending K2 use for a while.

    Yes, an unborn baby MAY be more susceptable but you do recognize ther danger present now don't you?

    As you said earlier, you're no doctor. Birth defects can be caused by outside chemical influences.
    Tumors in the brain and elsewhere can also be caused by outside chemical influences.

    This didn't just happen to a couple of women, this happened to hundreds of women.
    You don't know if it only took one dose.

    I'm hearing way too many bad things about K2 to even consider taking it without some kind of study to determine its safety.
    But go ahead and take it if it makes you happy. Darwin would want you to take it. :D

    I'm in no way condoning the use of K2 I was saying before this went into a tangent that 1 use of K2 will not cause a tumor, does that mean I would smoke it. No

    And you could be right. BUT since there is no data to determine whether it has any harmful effects, then you could be wrong as well. :D

    We've had a hell of a time getting data on herb, too.......:rolleyes:

    Since K2 isn't legal anymore, I guess we'll never know, will we.........:p
