Can Incense Get You High?

Inhaling the smoke from herbal incense can get you high only if it contains herbs that create those effects. Many brands such as black mamba, K2, genie, gold and spice are sold on the Internet and in numerous shops. These verities produce an effect similar to smoking marijuana.

Popular herbal incense brands contain an ingredient called tetrahyrocannabinol or THC which is also present in marijuana. Symptoms of inhaling the smoke include breathing problems, increased heart-rate, excessive sweating, paleness, tremors and hallucinations. It is banned in many parts of Europe and Kansas state in US. Prolonged use leads to addiction and even heart problems. It is best to avoid such products or check ingredients used to manufacture prior to use.
