Know Your Stuff reported that it was brought to them for testing in the central North Island after a user reported "extreme and rapid anxiety" after taking it believing they were taking MDMA. The growing family of synthetic cannabinoids continues to fracture into multiple branches as underground chemists attempt to get around bans by tweaking their recipe.

"Right now we're in the f*** around part of the f*** around and find out process when it comes to synthetic cannabinoids and novel cathinones," they wrote.
