 Side Effects and Adverse Reactions:

JWH-200 is a research chemical. Research chemicals are experimental chemicals that are not approved for human consumption. This is because not enough data exists currently about their side effects, adverse reactions, long term damage, addiction potential, etc. Although some people are willing to ingest research chemicals, it is not reasonable to assume that they are in any way safe to use recreationally.

JWH-200 and Drug Tests:

JWH-200 is a synthetic cannabinoid that currently cannot be detected with drug tests. This is because of how drug tests work. The basic concept is that your body attempts to break down any drugs you ingest. Metabolites are formed as part of this process; testing looks for the specific types of metabolites that could only occur as a result of drug taking. There is currently (as of Nov, 2009) no test that tests for the metabolites of synthetic cannabinoids. Rumor has it that scientists are developing a drug test that tests for them, although, the development and implementation process could take years.
