If you’re worried you’ve got some laced weed, you’ve come to the right place. Hopefully, you’re not experiencing any laced weed symptoms. If you are, it could be time to seek medical attention.

So before it gets to that point, here’s how to know if your weed is laced.
How To Tell If Weed Is Laced

Weed can be laced with harder drugs like cocaine, PCP, heroin, and acid. And aside from hard drugs, cannabis can be laced with other nasty stuff. Embalming fluid (formaldehyde), laundry soap, insecticide, even glass have all ended up in cannabis, either to try to increase its potency, its weight or its appearance.
