Can smoking herbal incense make me fail a hair follicle drug

Resolved Question:

Can smoking herbal incense make me fail a hair follicle drug test.

The synthetic cannabinoid in "herbal incense" (also know as "Spice" or "K2") JWH-018 is not identified in the currently available drug tests.

HOWEVER, since this illegal drug (recent DEA emergency powers), is sold by less than reputable people, the actual content of the substance could include some other illegal drug that could be identified.

Understood, I have taken a urine test and passed, just wondered if hair testing is different.
Expert:  Family Physician replied 6 years ago.
No, the hair test would not identify this drug.
