There were 10 cases reported in Chicago and four others in Cook County, according to the department of health.

Synthetic pot is made up of dozens of different chemicals known as cannabinoids.

Arnold said symptoms of the outbreak have included severe bloody noses, coughing up blood, bleeding gums and blood in urine.

"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.

Twenty-two people have been hospitalized with bleeding from the eyes and ears after using synthetic pot, IL health officials have said. They are sold on the street, according to state department spokesperson Melaney Arnold, and most of the patients report having acquired their products from friends, dealers, or convenience stores. Individuals who experience bleeding symptoms should not take themselves to the emergency department but should instead call 911 or have someone drive them.

If a person was hospitalized, they could get Vitamin K through an IV, which would work faster on the body, Lank said.

Officials in the Chicago area warned Thursday about a disturbing trend among users of synthetic marijuana: bleeding from the eyes and ears. Researches from universities in the Netherlands and Germany found that users of synthetic marijuana were more likely to feel incapacitated, compared with regular weed, even if the high was relatively similar.

Shah says they're unsafe because it's hard to know what chemicals they contain or what an individual's reaction will be. They also warn that any recently purchased fake weed products should not be used as the specific brands causing the unusual symptoms have not been identified.

Illinois Department of Public Health director Nirav D. Shah, M.D., J.D. says "synthetic cannabinoids are unsafe".

"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.
