Oops. Some CBD products are badly mislabeled.
Food Dive reports: FDA study finds some CBD products are mislabeled: Of the 20 edible and beverage products tested that had an amount of CBD marketed on their labels, five had less than 80% of the amount indicated and six had more than 120%.
I’m particularly interested in CBD edibles so I took a look at the FDA CBD labeling report.
What the results mean:
- For gummies, 7 of 17 products were mislabeled by 20% or more, and 5 contained THC (the psychodelic ingredient they are not supposed to have).
- For edibles, 6 of 17 were mislabeled by 20% or more, and 3 had THC.
- For beverages, 3 of 8 were mislabeled by 20% or more, but none had THC.
- For pet foods, 5 of 22 were mislabeled by 20% or more, and 9 had THC.
If you want THC in your edibles, you’ve got a pretty good chance of getting it, and so do your pets.
