    Anyone have any info/experiences about the K2 smoke blend? Swim has searched the internet but has not found all that much information. K2 seems to getting positive reviews but swim would like to hear some more.

    There are three different types (Standard, Citron and Blonde) and swim is curious as to how they differ. Swim is also curious about how long the effects of each lasts.

    Thanks.

    Experiences with Summit, Citron and Blonde, can be found here:

    K2 blonde is a heady blend with some mild body effects, mostly sleepy eyes. It lasts about 2-3 hours for SWIM, and evaporates with no hangover.

    SWIM would call it similar to D-RAW in effects, but he prefers the K2 texture (similar to fluffy buds) and pineapple smell, which are top-notch.

    SWIM really enjoys K2 Blonde. It is a very economical blend available in the US and the effects surprised SWIM considering the price. SWIM has only used the Blonde version. This is the strongest of the 3 blends.
    It is not as strong as the extreme blends but a good value blend with nice effects.

    Out of curiosity, when swiy says he enjoys the blend, how would swiy compare it in strength to a European blend? Like one of the spice blends?

    Swim was under the impression that US blends wouldn't contain analogs, so would be less active but swim hasn't actually tested these assumptions.

    Would swiy happen to know what synthetic cannabinoid is likely to be in the K2 blend?

    SWIM finds K2 not as strong as the top European blends. SWIM likes MS and Yucatan Fire. This is not in that class but close to Enigma.
    SWIM wasn't expecting much when he bought this on a recommendation due to the low price, but was surprised by the amount of effects he received.
    It is a nice blend for the price. It has a shorter duration around a hour for SWIM. It mixed nice with MS as well.

    SWIM doesn't know what cannabinoids if any are in this. The vendor who has this never carried any known cannabinoids blends before.

    Swim tried K2 smoke blend. He said it is a very worthwhile blend.
    It's duration is very short, 30 minutes or so. This is interesting. Are there any cannabinoids out there which have such a short duration?

    SWIM is a pretty large male (in a big way, not a round way) weighing in at over 230 pounds. SWIM received 3 grams each of K2 Citron and and K2 Blonde. SWIM can only compare to Enigma and Ex-Ses Platinum at this point.

    Both Citron and Blonde are light in color and texture, springy, slightly fluffy, which SWIM appreciates given that he is still using a drugstore tobacco pipe with a deep bowl that can make small amounts of product difficult to use. The texture makes them more enjoyable to work with than Enigma and the few Spice-alikes SWIM has experienced. The texture almost makes the whole scary "SWIM has no idea what this stuff has in it" issue seem less pressing given the harmless, even friendly appearance of the product.

    Both blends seem to share a smell, but SWIM can't put his finger on it. Someone mentioned pineapple, which SWIM does not really smell, but SWIM has a hard time getting past the sort of grain-y and pepper-y smell he detects in both products. The smell from Blonde is much stronger than from Citron. Whatever it is, it has an earthiness that SWIM somewhat enjoys. (SWIM preferred the taste of the Citron.)

    SWIM found the effects of both Citron and Blonde to be significant (definitely not placebo or borderline) and reproducible. However, after using Blonde, using Citron to re-up was largely ineffectual until all effects had cleared from SWIM's system. SWIM has used doses from around 100mg to up to 250mg of each. Onset was within one to a few minutes following a couple of deep, held draws. SWIM felt the effects mostly in the head, sort of an intermittent cognitive dampening of both input and output. No spontaneous creativity or euphoria, although SWIM was alone with no one to interact with, which could have changed the experience.

    The effects were moderately floaty head and somewhat tired eyes, and then a pretty good mental relaxation. There were few body effects according to SWIM aside from the floaty feeling of mild incoordination common to almost any buzz. Despite the tired eyes feeling, SWIM otherwise experienced no tiredness or lethargy whatsoever. Even the tired eyes was a feeling rather than a need, there was no urge to close SWIM's eyes and rest.

    The effects of Citron were very much like those of Blonde, with Blonde's effects being more pronounced and lasting longer. Both blends had extremely short durations for SWIM. Citron had a duration of perhaps 15 minutes with a brief peak that lasted a minute or two at very most. Blonde had a duration of 20 to 30 minutes, with a peak that was a little stronger and a little longer, and which then tailed off more slowly than Citron until it abruptly disappeared. The duration for both was under half an hour, but Blonde gave a higher level of effect over more of that timeframe and also retained some tired-eye into the second half hour. There was a mild sensation of heart palpitation that seemed to occur more with Citron than Blonde, but it was primarily perception and only a small increase in heart rate, and none of this lasted for long.

    It has also been very easy for SWIM to re-up on just a hit from Blonde to prolong the effects, thanks to the relatively quick onset.

    Most interesting is that aside from a very mild tension above the eyes, just barely enough to notice, SWIM discerns no physical or mental after-effects, does not feel mentally slow and is not remotely physically tired. Within an hour, SWIM is completely back to normal. This is in contrast to SWIM's experience with Enigma, which has both head and body effects that are routinely persisting for several hours, with vestiges of a swimmy/floaty head feeling lasting for many hours beyond. SWIM is a big fan of Enigma, which is the only blend he's experienced any euphoria with so far, but if the K2 blends continue working this way SWIM will keep them around and enjoy them for their short duration.


    Overall for SWIM:
    • both Citron and Blonde imparted a calm, introspective mental state, a sort of disconnect without feeling dumb
    • neither imparted euphoria or creativity, but SWIM was alone and cannot say for sure
    • neither had more than a faint hangover, within an hour all systems seemed "go," no lethargy, no apathy, no confusion
    • Citron's effects extremely short-lived. In practice, SWIM would probably only purchase Blonde, but if time was even tighter and SWIM wanted something that was even shorter acting to fit into SWIM's schedule, Citron would be right there
    • SWIM would rate this a good notch below Enigma in terms of the breadth, duration and quality of effects, but if SWIM had to meet busy schedules and/or interact with others frequently either Citron or Blonde would be high on his list
    • SWIM cannot compare these products to Ex-Ses Platinum, as SWIM has been unable to discern any significant effects after a bad first attempt with a small amount of the product
    • SWIM is even more curious about these products given their very short duration

    After further examination, swim finds K2 smoke blend to be very promising.

    Swim now believes that this may in fact not contain a synthetic cannabinoid. It does not have a "chemical" feel that was felt almost immediately with blends like Spice Gold. It's duration is also typical of herbs like baybean and wild dagga.

    Upon contacting the vendor which provided the K2 smoke blend, the owner claimed that a well done baybean extraction he tested at one point felt somewhat similar.

    Only a few hits are needed to attain full effects, anymore than that appears to be a waste. There appears to be a cap on how high you can get. Redosing after about 20 minutes also appears to be meaningless. The user must wait about 45 minutes to an hour before a redose will effectively work. All three types (Standard, Blonde, Citron) are effective, but there are a few differences:

    Blonde- The "heaviest" of the three. Very mild body buzz, but certain relaxation and change of awareness and perception as with cannabis. Lasts the longest with about a 20-30 minute duration for main affects and mild aftereffects for about another 30-60 minutes. No excessive tiredness is felt, only a small headache.

    Citron- Citron has a similar duration to Standard, but is a bit more powerful. Provides similar relaxation and change of awareness to Blonde, but its duration is about half as short, with half the aftereffects.

    Standard-
    Duration is about the same as Citron with similar effects.

    Note that all three types promoted relaxtion rather than a tired haze. Swim could go on with his day after 45 minutes. Total baseline is hit very quickly. "Haziness" is one reason why swim really dislikes cannabis. K2, on the other hand, is free from haziness. The mind is kept lucid and aware. Paranoia and anxiety are very very slim.

    K2 has become swims favorite smoke blend due to its short duration and lack of a hangover. Swim is also comforted by the fact that it may be a natural blend, and not have to worry about the possible negative side effects of a chemical like JWH-018.

    K2 is a wonderful blend. For swim, it is a notch above cannabis.

    New K2 smoke blend is out. "K2 Summit". Anyone have any experience with this one yet? How does it compare to Blonde?

    SWIM did not know there was a new blend, but is interested in hearing about it as well. SWIM did not expect much from the K2 blends initially, but finds them very enjoyable, particularly for the cost. It appears Summit is more expensive.

    SWIM's experience with Citron and Blonde (described above) has changed with further use. Citron's effects in particular feel notably stronger now. (Same package.) SWIM has been using Citron (and to a lesser extent Blonde) mixed with other blends, and having a highly enjoyable time with the results: 150-200mg of Citron with roughly 100mg of Infinity, Spike 99 Ultra or Ex-Ses Platinum. (SWIM is intending to try swapping in Enigma for the 100mg portion.)

    SWIM is unsure if he has just gotten "broken in" on Citron, or if Citron is a good synergy with other blends. SWIM had previously tried roughly the same cumulative amount (250-300mg) of Citron, Blonde and Infinity straight (separately from one another) and did not experience the same results as the aforementioned mixes.

    (SWIM is using a pipe on all of these, so his mileage may vary on dosage.)

    SWIM hasn't tried the summit yet but early reviews are the Summit is much more potent than the blonde. Sounds promising!

    Swims tried K2 Blonde recently. It looks like a proper herbal mixture with quite a variety of ingredients and smells vaguely medicinal/herbal. The results produce a short acting (but definite) high that evaporates cleanly leaving no hangover. It almost feels as if it contains a single cannabinoid that produces a short, but potentially somewhat intense high similar to the come-up of other blends (like Magic Silver) without having their staying power (and whatever produces their longer lasting effects).

    It's a kind of nice, clear headed high that will be gone in 40 or so minutes which makes it interesting.
    [​IMG]
    The suggestion that it contains baybean extract seems pretty unlikely as it produces a distinctly cannabinoid high and all the reports swim could find suggest that baybean seed or root extracts haven't produced any confirmed highs and only the resin from the flower has been (vaguely) suggested to be narcotic.

    Edit:

    The smell/(taste) is lavendar. Also attaching a picture swim gave me, apologies for the quality.

    Has anyone with a high cannabis tolerance noticed a cross tolerance when using K2?

    SWIM tried the Summit. They find it to be the beasters of herbal blends. SWIM still chooses Summit over L.U. Dream. Looks a bit like saw dust and the goodness only lasts about 40 minutes to an hour.

    Randypan added 6 Minutes and 29 Seconds later...

    However, tolerance to herbal blends may play a role in SWIM's judgment. The taste and smell is also less than desired. SWIM thinks it smells somewhat like psilocybin mushrooms sprayed with glade.

    SWIM has now used K2 Summit several times, and he relates his unfortunate disappointment in the blend versus K2 Blonde and K2 Citron. (SWIM is a big fan of Citron for short sessions and for mixing with other blends.) It is not that there are no effects -- they are definitely there -- however for SWIM they are not appreciably different than those of Blonde (which for SWIM is a moderate physical buzz, but to this point absolutely no mental effects), and the duration is similarly short as well. Given that Summit is more costly, SWIM does not see the personal value in purchasing more unless it turns out that Summit (like Citron) makes a great mix ingredient for him.

    SWIM previously used a pipe on blends, but is now using a bong exclusively. SWIM also previously reported that his first experience with Summit was followed by an extremely intense headache that persisted most of the day, however subsequent sessions have not involved any head pain during or after (he believes the headache was probably just coincidental, and he endures them periodically), and like Blonde and Citron SWIM returns entirely side-effect free to baseline within an hour.

    SWIM plans to try a mix of Summit and something to be decided later, and will also try a higher dose before giving up entirely, but unless these attempts yield something surprising his bag of Summit will become a rainy day backup at the bottom of the stash box.

    SWIM has tried Summit and prefers the Blonde.

    Both are good blends, and Summit is a bit more potent.

    The texture of Summit is a little more coarse, with large chunks of buds. Blonde texture is very light and fluffy (SWIM has heard that Blonde uses marigold petals).

    The smell of Summit is pretty artificial, like someone mentioned, glade. Blonde has a very mild smell (props to the poster who nailed lavender, that is it) that seems more natural. Blonde is probably SWIM's favorite blend for texture and smell.

    SWIM agrees on the smell of Summit. Though many of the blends have an odd smell and/or taste (chemical or otherwise), and some are extremely harsh, there's something about Summit's smell and taste that lingers and creates a negative thought or mindset when he considers using it again. In fact, since his last post SWIM has not even opened his bag of Summit. It's not a foul smell or taste, in fact it's not dramatically different from Blonde or Citron, there's just a hint of something SWIM perceives as a little sickly sweet.

    To all of the people who talked to me and helped SWIM find the K2 varieties/products, I want to thank you sincerely.

    I read in another thread, something that is so true (whether the dogs in the neighborhood go to the herbal shop, mostly in Chinese Medicine/Hocking Herbal people), there is always one thing/absolute that stands: "The dogs are dealing with drug dealers, or they are ALWAYS dealing with someone who wants to make a profit/is hocking something."

    So.....the Labrador dog in the neighborhood, purchased some K2 Blonde and K2 Summit, though she has yet to receive it, as of today (looking for it, for sure, tomorrow/Thursday at the latest). She bought the two different kinds, in order to see the effects, harshness of the smoke, and an overall gauge compared to the "Marry J" she was used to smoking. Now the lab has some questions, on K2 (any varieties, or SWYN stories):

    1. How much would be a good amount to smoke? (Should the lab smoke a joint of it? A glass bowl, on a small pipe? A bat/one hitter, from a dug out?

    2. How new is K2, overall? The lab in Missouri (on the Kansas City side), is at a disadvantage, because it has just hit the scene. Like I said in a previous post, in this thread, I would have never even heard of K2, if it hadn't had been on the news (link to news story (I have the link to the news story, if you want it, but it seems to be on the "anti-drug" side, and very slanted). I also am an avid reader, know about certain things, but had never seen this (K2) before. So, a general (4 months, 2 years) on how long it has been around, would be great. Since, living in the Midwest is sometimes light years behind the coasts, and megalight years behind Europe.

    3. Has anyone has any allergic reactions, bad reactions, or reactions to the K2 Blonde, or K2 Summit, products. The lab has problems with some allergies, but doesn't have any problems with tolerance/allergic reactions to Marry J., so she wondered about the "chemical/engineering parts" of K2. She is not looking for a "set in stone, you are on the hook for the advise", but a general inquisition is anyone had any ill effects on something that seems to be so new, or at least new to this area, even though it is 100% legal, here (maybe everywhere, I don't know).

    Thanks once again, for anything you've got and Peace,
    DMAN
