Weed can be laced with various drugs and non-psychoactive substances. It is not always easy to know if cannabis is laced just by looking at it. The consequences/effects that lacing weed can have on people can be minor or severe.

The dilemma with laced weed is that you can’t tell whether it’s laced unless you have tried it. If it turns out that you have used it, then you’ll definitely know because you’ll likely be really messed up.

What Exactly Is Laced Cannabis?  

Laced cannabis is a cannabis flower mixed with different chemicals, inorganic substances, drugs, or additives. You will find it hard to believe the things people are prepared to mix with cannabis. Hair sprays, detergents, pesticides, and even glass are just some things that people add to cannabis.

Why, in God’s name, would anyone combine this powerful and healing herb with anything else? Well, there are several notable reasons. Crooked dealers will do almost anything to make more profit by selling you low-quality cannabis. For that reason, they would want to make it seem as heavy and high-quality as possible. Apart from covering the low quality, lacing cannabis with other potent drugs is a method these dealers use to get people hooked on the drug without their knowledge, ensuring that they keep coming back for more.

Getting high is no reason at all to lace cannabis, as it does that for you already, but people still use it as a reason to lace cannabis anyway. Some people intentionally sprinkle other drugs with their cannabis to make it stronger or give effects that cannabis typically does not provide.

Cannabis can be laced with various substances, including:

  • Glass
  • Methamphetamine
  • PCP (angel dust)
  • LSD
  • Embalming fluid
  • Laundry detergent
  • Heroin
  • Fentanyl
  • Ketamine

The results of laced cannabis differ depending on what the drug is combined with, the method by which the cannabis is consumed, and various personal factors. A handful of people know what the marijuana bought on the street contains. Even many dealers do not understand what it is they are selling.

How to Tell if Weed Is Laced 

If you found yourself in possession of laced cannabis, it was likely laced in one of two ways. It’s either a blunt or joint immersed in a liquid form of a chemical mix or drug, or chemical substances were sprinkled into cannabis that was already ground and likely wrapped.

Other strains may result in more relaxation and less euphoria, while a different strain may make someone feel more clumsy or blurry than others do.

Laced cannabis can lead to a slur of side effects that vary from what a person typically feels. Psychedelics, such ass meth and cocaine, can make you feel highly energized, strongly focused, and incredibly joyful. While downers, such as heroin, can make you feel overly relaxed, lethargic, or nauseous, PCP or LSD can make you start to hallucinate.

Other substances that are used, such as laundry detergent, glass, or fungi, may lead to overwhelming coughing, pain, or vomiting. The majority of people who smoke weed know the effect of cannabis on the lungs. Acute pain in the lungs may mean the cannabis has been laced with another drug.
