K2 is synthetic marijuana that is man-made by spraying herbs or other leafy materials with liquid chemicals that mimic the effect of (THC), the psychoactive ingredient in the naturally grown marijuana plant. This drug first became available in the U.S. in 2008 and is part of a group of drugs called new psychoactive substances (NPS). JWH-018 pentanoic acid and JWH-073 butanoic acid are two of the most common synthetic cannabinoid/marijuana chemicals in herbal smoking blends and immunoassay screening tests for K2 usually detect one or both of these chemicals.
