Clinical pattern of synthetic cannabinoids users in Upper Egypt: cross-sectional study

Adolescence are the most common users of SCs; neuro-psychiatric and cardiovascular side effects were the most experienced by subjects; and violence in many forms, especially domestic violence, was associated with synthetic cannabinoids abuse.
Cannabis and synthetic cannabinoid poison control center cases among adults aged 50+, 2009–2019
TLDR
Although PCC cannabis cases involving older adults are relatively few, cases of other cannabis preparations than plant forms increased rapidly in recent years while cases of synthetic cannabinoids decreased.
Acute Kidney Injury Related to Intoxication From Synthetic Cannabis: Don’t You Know That You’re Toxic?
TLDR
A case of a young male who presented with severe AKI that initially raised concern for the need to start renal replacement therapy is presented, and his renal function improved dramatically, and he was discharged home within days of presentation.
MECHANISMS OF SYNTHETIC CANNABINOIDS ON CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH

A systematic review of adverse events arising from the use of synthetic cannabinoids and their associated treatment
TLDR
To identify systematically the scientific reports of adverse events associated with the consumption of SCs in the medical literature and poison centre data, this work searched online databases and manually searched reference lists up to December 2014 to identify eligible studies.
An Outbreak of Synthetic Cannabinoid–Associated Coagulopathy in Illinois
TLDR
The data indicate that superwarfarin adulterants of synthetic cannabinoids can lead to clinically significant coagulopathy and in most of the cases in which the patient presented with bleeding diathesis, symptoms were controlled with the use of vitamin K1 replacement therapy.
“Zombie” Outbreak Caused by the Synthetic Cannabinoid AMB‐FUBINACA in New York
TLDR
The potency of the synthetic cannabinoid identified in these analyses is consistent with strong depressant effects that account for the “zombielike” behavior reported in this mass intoxication in New York City.
Pharmacology, Toxicology, and Adverse Effects of Synthetic Cannabinoid Drugs.
TLDR
There is growing toxicological and pharmacological evidence of impairment, psychosis, tissue injury, and isolated deaths attributable to this emerging class of drugs.
Real-time monitoring of a mass K2-related overdose outbreak – Connecticut, 2018
TLDR
Data from the EpiCenter system were consistent with reports from other data sources regarding this cluster of suspected drug overdoses, and a plan to improve coordinate real-time communication with stakeholders within DPH and with external partners during events is developed.
2017 Annual Report of the American Association of Poison Control Centers’ National Poison Data System (NPDS): 35th Annual Report
TLDR
These data support the continued value of PC expertise and need for specialized medical toxicology information to manage more serious exposures, despite a decrease in cases involving lessserious exposures, according to the near real-time status of NPDS.
