Does Spice Show Up In A Drug Test?

No, none of the synthetic marijuana available to purchase will show up on a drug test.

The drug that Spice, and most forms of artificial marijuana, contains is called JWH-018. It is considered harmful, but it won’t show up in a drug test. JWH-018 usage is not detectable with the usual biochemical screening methods employed by the authorities for detecting cannabis use from urine specimens. These examinations are used in testing for THC, the primary psychoactive compound of cannabis.

Spice, which has now become a generic term for all synthetic marijuana, is often marketed as ‘herbal incense’, however, some brands market their products as ‘herbal smoking blends’. In either case the products are usually smoked by users. Although synthetic cannabis does not produce positive results in drug tests for cannabis, it is possible to detect its metabolites in human urine. The synthetic cannabinoids contained in synthetic cannabis products have been made illegal in many European countries.

The US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) considers it to be a ‘drug of concern’, citing ‘...a surge in emergency-room visits and calls to poison-control centers. Adverse health effects associated with its use include seizures, hallucinations, paranoid behavior, agitation, anxiety, nausea, vomiting, racing heartbeat and elevated blood pressure.’

On November 24, 2010, the DEA announced it would make five synthetic cannabinoids Schedule I drugs within a month using emergency powers. Prior to the announcement, several US states had already made them illegal under state law.

As of March 1, 2011, five cannabinoids, JWH-018, JWH-073, CP-47,497, JWH-200, and cannabicyclohexanol are now illegal in the US. The ban put into effect by the Drug Enforcement Administration for a period of one year, will allow for the study of the effects of JWH-018 on the human body, and whether it should be permanently controlled under United States Law.

No I talked to someone in a lab that test for it  who told me that it is only tracable in urine for 48 hours and its tracable in blood for a few hours and it is not in your standard 5 panel test ...they do have a test for it but if they was going to test you for it they would have to send it to the lab and test it there but its highly unlikely they will I'm on probation and smoke it so you'll be fine
thanked the writer.

Almost never. Tests for the metabolites of these synthetic cannabinoids are very rare, and those that exist are only checking for the a couple of these compounds that are now rather uncommon in brands of Spice. These tests are used almost exclusively by the military and are extremely rare for employment, probation, or other purposes. Federal law specifically made about six of the THC analogs illegal, however the spice industry is now using hundreds of new compounds in their spice which can also act on the C1 and C2 receptors in the brain (like marijuana). Drug tests only exist for a couple of the original few JWH and HU chemical metabolites (which are seldom contained in spice anymore because of the new laws). The result is that the drug testing manufacturers now have a "moving target" and will have a very hard time developing a test for spice - because they don't know exactly what to test for. In short, spice users are safe with respect to drug testing, although military users should be cautious. Unfortunately for spice users, they have no idea what they are actually consuming, and that can be dangerous.

Spice isn't a controlled substance, there's holes in the policy. For the sake of arguing if you are in the military, it wouldn't be a bright idea to do anything.

No it dosent. The synthetic canibanoids in spice arnt tested for in drug tests. All your smokin is a blend of herbs that are 100% legal. The chemicals that get you high in spice are not in any way similar to thc.

Yes it (scooby) definitely shows up. It shows up on the test as K-2 spice. I just failed one for probation and I smoke scooby snax. I even bought a bottle of urine cleanser, so as far as I know there is absolutely nothing to flush your system of it.  Is anyone familiar with any kinda of detox pill or drink that works for K-2 specifically. I've had success in the past with the detox pills and drinks with respect to canabas, just not K-2. Please help!
