Spice K2 Test

Spice, K2 Cannot Be Detected With Regular Drug Tests

Synthetic marijuana is a mix of organic plant materials mixed with dangerous synthetic compounds, including JWH-018 and JWH-073, and is commonly described as an herbal incense product.

The most common brands are K2 and Spice, though a wide variety of other brand names contain similar compounds.

Spice, K2, K3 are legal in many states across the country, while illegal in a handful of states and municipalities.

The synthetic drug compounds found in K2 and similar herbal incense products act on the same receptors in the brain as natural marijuana, yet have opposite symptoms such as aggressiveness, irritability and a fast heart rate.

Users looking for a “legal high” have reportedly turned to these products as an alternative to marijuana. Two compounds, JWH-018 and JWH-073, have been identified in these products as primary receptor agonists that produce marijuana-like effects.

Despite similarities to marijuana, these products, found in over 25 different herbal blends, are not detectable using standard drug tests.

What Is Direct Measured LDL?
Conventional cholesterol tests calculate your LDL levels, they don't measure your LDL levels.
One of the key benefits of the VAP Technology is a direct-measured LDL. The routine cholesterol panel, which calculates LDL using the Friedewald formula, provides only a 40% predictive value for coronary heart disease. In contrast, VAP Tests, which directly measure LDL, identify more than 90% of patients at risk for heart disease. Based on concerns about the reliability of calculated LDL, the NCEP ATP III guidelines recommend direct LDL measurement methods unaffected by triglycerides and patient fasting. In fact, calculated LDL is significantly inaccurate in patients with heart disease or the equivalent (LDL goal <70-100 mg/dL). Calculated LDL also fails to accurately classify risk for those who most need it-patients with triglycerides >200 mg/dL
