Report: Many Commercially Marketed CBD Products Tainted with Psychoactive Adulterants

19 September 2019

One-third of commercially marketed CBD products tested positive for the presence of synthetic, psychoactive adulterants while others tested negative for any presence of CBD, according to an investigation by the Associated Press.

Reporters commissioned laboratory testing of 30 commercially available CBD products sold at retailers (non-state licensed dispensaries), including edible products and vapor products. The AP reported that ten of the 30 products analyzed tested positive for the presence of synthetic cannabinoids typically identified in illicit products such as ‘Spice,’ ‘K2,’ and other controlled substances. These synthetic agents are illegal under federal law and their consumption may be associated with significant adverse health effects.
