I've recently stopped smoking botanical potpourri and was wondering if my subsequent weight loss could be a result? As well as dark circles/veins eyes

In brief: Impossible to say

Botanical potpourri sounds so innocent for synthetic cannabinoids which can be dangerous and even lethal.
All cannibinoids, including the synthetics, increase appetite, and if you have had changes in appetite since stopping, this may be the cause of weight loss. Please do not use these synthetics (including bath salts etc) - they are truly dangerous and each batch is different. Get help stopping.

In brief: Yes

You were smoking a substance that causes euphoria by depriving the brain of oxygen and you are worried about weight loss and dark circles under your eyes? You are worrying about the wrong things.
Are you getting help for your addiction? You should see a doctor and maybe your local mental health agency has a drug program. You could also look for na or aa meetings as a start.
