Madrid/Palma.—Spanish scientists have reported the first ever case of catatonic psychosis caused by using a type of synthetic cannabis called Spice, a drug which is becoming increasingly popular.
Researchers in Spain’s Valencia region published their findings in a report in the latest issue of the medical journal Psychiatry.
They described the case of a 19-year-old Valencian woman who had started smoking hashish at 16 before switching over to Spice.
In May 2012, she sought medical help after suffering from a pyschotic episode that had lasted for several months.
She had stopped smoking Spice months earlier but was still experiencing hallucinations, and talking to herself.
