Synthetic cannabinoids (such as SPICE and Black Mamba) bear no relation to cannabis. They consist of plant matter that is then sprayed with a number of chemicals developed to act like THC, an active ingredient in cannabis, but rarely offer the same effects. The drug can cause a range of symptoms, including psychosis, muscle spasms and aggressive behaviours.
