Lauren: This is per Dr. Yanga during the web chat. "Some of the base plants used in the herbal blend can have mood altering properties; however, the majority of the effects are from the designer drugs (ie synthetic drugs) that are sprayed and included into the blend. Because there is not FDA regulation on the blends, each product is variable. It is hard to make accurate statements which encompass all of the products. If the designer drugs were taken out of the "incense" the addictive potential would likely be lower. Again, we have no information on trials that look at herbal incense products with and without the designer drugs included. "
