What is Counterfeit K2
The easy answer to this question is straight forward. There are only eight authentic K2 blends currently in production. The incense based blends include K2 Summit, K2 Ultra, K2 Solid Sex, K2 Blonde and K2 Sky Incense. The non-incense product is K2 Thai Dream. Any other blend claiming to be K2 Incense is fake. Additionally, many individuals are copying the packaging of the authentic K2 blends and stuffing them with contents Not produced by the K2 Manufacture, therefore a product claiming to be an "authentic K2 Summit" can very well be a counterfeit "K2 Summit," which contains different ingredients from the ingredients of the genuine K2 Summit, and those might include illegal chemicals and might pose great dangers. We encourage the Fire Marshal's Office to seize any product labeled as "K2," which source can't be identified or verified. More information can be found on our Counterfeit K2 Blends page and on the How To Identify Authentic K2 Incense page.

How Do I Know I Am Buying Authentic K2 Blends
This question leads to more complicated questions that are not necessarily best answered here. There are presently only eight Authentic Blends in production. These blends include incense based products like K2 Summit, K2 Blonde, K2 Ultra, K2 Sky and K2 Solid Sex (AKA, K2 "Sex on the Mountain"). The non-incense product is Thai Dream. Any blends represented as K2 Incense that are different from these eight blends will be counterfeit. If a retail store, distributor or website is selling counterfeit blends alongside "authentic blends", their is a 99.99% probability that all the K2 Incense being sold by this source are counterfeit and should be reported to K2 Verified for further action. Screen shots and videos of the counterfeit product can be submitted here. The easiest thing that you can do is to look for the K2 Verified Seal, if you're dealing with a website, or ask the store clerk what is their K2Verified ID, if you're dealing with an actual store. You can validate the member number and member information on our K2 Verified Validation page. Most online scammers would provide you with a toll free number and would have a legitimately looking website, so that you can call them and they can "convince" you that the product they are selling is "authentic K2;" don't fall for it, just use common sense. There are over 100 "K2" websites already, with dozens of new ones popping up every day, yet there are only 4 websites selling the true authentic K2 incense. You can draw your own conclusions.

Back to Questions

Who is the K2 Incense Manufacturer
At present, there exists a non-disclosure agreement, which prevents any Master Distributor from disclosing, who the manufacturer of K2 Incense is. Presently, there are 12 Master Distributors across the globe covering North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia. The responsibility of these 12 Master Distributors is the development of a Distribution network. The Master Distributors, by design, were setup initially to sell both to Distributors and Retailers in an effort to build that distribution channel. Distributors are localized stocking Hubs with a stated mission to target, grow & supply a territorial retail network.
