Many hours have been put into developing a reliable, NIJ compliant presumptive field test for synthetic cannabinoids. This solution identifies indole formulas including #JWH-018, JWH-073, JWH-200, AB-001, AM-2201, RCS-4, RCS-8, XLR-11 and UR-144. This test does not color react with non-indole formulas including HU-210, CP47,496, or the new substance AKB-48, but fortunately these are less common and most street substances include multiple synthetic cannabinoids.
NARK20023 contains 5 two-pouch tests for presumptive identification of Synthetic Cannabinoids.
NOTE: ALL TEST RESULTS MUST BE CONFIRMED BY AN APPROVED ANALYTICAL LABORATORY! The results of this test are merely presumptive. NARK® only tests for the possible presence of certain chemical compounds. Reactions may occur with, and such compounds can be found in, both legal and illegal products. This test must be administered following its specific instructions and may be used in conjunction with other reagents in the NARK® II Sequential Testing System.
