GYDT tested a brown pebble sample on Friday 4th April that tested positive for fentanyl and AMB-FUBINACA. It was mailed from somewhere in Vancouver. AMB-FUBINACA is a substance that can be very harmful in small doses and is often responsible for experiences colloquially described by users as "trippy dope."

Updated information 6th April:
"Trippy dope" is a term used by people who use opioids to describe a broad range of drug experiences, all of which are well outside of what the user would expect from opioids. These experiences are often much longer or shorter in duration and usually have a psychedelic or a dissociate component to them. These experiences are typically extremely distressing, and can lead to the user getting hurt or robbed. While there are countless possible explanations for these experiences, we believe synthetic cannabinoids such as AMB-FUBINACA represent a significant amount of them.
Unfortunately, synthetic cannabinoids are still not well understood, and many articles on them are sensationalized. Please see included an alert from Alberta Health Services that includes important information.
