Spice: New Psychoactive Substances briefing for professionals

Spice is a nickname for a herbal mixture containing one or more of a group of drugs called synthetic cannabinoids. Spice was originally a brand name of a drug, sold as a ‘legal high’ along with other brand names like Black Mamba, Annihilation, Exodus Damnation and Happy Joker. They contained a non-psychoactive herbal smoking mixture that had been mixed with one or more of a group of drugs known as Synthetic Cannabinoid Receptor Agonists (to give them their full name) or SCRAs for short.
