Additional cases have been reported across the state.

Sellers of synthetic cannabinoids promise effects similar to genuine cannabis, but use can come with severe agitation, anxiety, a racing heartbeat, raised blood pressure, nausea, vomiting, muscle spasms, seizures, tremors and intense hallucinations and psychotic episodes, according to the American Association of Poison Control Centers.

All cases have required hospitalization for symptoms such as coughing up blood, blood in the urine, severe bloody nose, or bleeding gums, IDPH said.

"This bleeding is not expected, at least in such a significant population so quickly", Dr. Melissa Millewich, an emergency room physician at Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove, told the Chicago Tribune.

Recent patient reports of severe bleeding led health officials to warn the public not to use any synthetic cannabinoid products.

The agency is continuing to warn anyone who has used these products and starts to experience sudden, unexplained bleeding or bruising is urged to seek emergency help immediately. "They can contain a variety of chemicals, and users often don't know what those are, such as rat poison", said IDPH Director Nirav D. Shah, M.D., J.D.

If a person was hospitalized, they could get Vitamin K through an IV, which would work faster on the body, Lank said. These THC-like chemicals are then sprayed onto plant products and sold as synthetic marijuana. "It is hard to know what's in them or what your reaction to them will be".

Adolescents are at a high risk to be exposed to the outbreak because synthetic cannabinoid products are typically easier to obtain than marijuana, Lank said. The products are also sometimes referred to as herbal or liquid incense.

The Illinois Department of Public Health tracks cases of bleeding from synthetic marijuana online.

"These chemicals are called cannabinoids because they act on the same brain cell receptors as the main active ingredient in marijuana", IDPH explained, warning that the drug's impact can be life-threatening.
