A designer drug is created by changing the properties of a drug that comes from a plant, such as marijuana or cocaine, using the tools of chemistry. The resulting "designer" drugs typically have similar or sometimes heightened effects compared to the illegal recreational drugs.
Ammon Analytical Laboratory is the industry leader in designer drug testing, keeping up with current drug trends and developing new tests all the time. We are able to detect new substances that are rapidly appearing on the market and offer testing in urine, for physicians and other healthcare providers to order.
Due to the nature of designer drugs, Ammon Analytical Laboratory is developing new tests all the time. It is critical that the laboratory tests you use are aligned with the current drug trends and can detect the new substances that are rapidly appearing on the market, not just the ones that many drug users have stopped using. Ammon Analytical Laboratory can be your partner in the fight against designer drugs. We offer real solutions to this very real problem.

K2 is a popular new designer drug that has effects just like marijuana. Many copy cat products that contain the same chemicals are being sold on the internet, in boutique stores, gas stations and smoke shops.
K2 looks like potpourri and consists of leaves, stems and petals of aromatic plants such as licorice. These crushed plants are "laced with" the active chemicals and are sold as "incense" or "legal highs". It is usually smoked in a small pipe or a cigarette. Scientifically you may hear this referred to as JWH-018, JWH-073, JWH-250, AM-2201 or similar.
Bath salts are a synthetic form of amphetamines and cocaine. The packets are marketed as "bath salts" or "plant food" and are available in corners stores, truck stops and on the Internet. They come with an often-ignored disclaimer, "Not for human consumption." These "bath salts" are really a tablet or powder that is snorted, injected or smoked. They are sold in packets marked with names like Bounce, Bubbles, Energy-1, Ivory Wave, and more.
