The Houston Police Department has recently seized products labeled as CBD (cannabidiol) oil that was being marketed for use in vaporizers at several smoke shops in Houston. HPD executed three search warrants, recovering hundreds of bottles of this substance. Testing revealed that most of the CBD oil purchased from these smoke shops contained synthetic cannabinoids.
Consumers should be aware that products sold at convenience stores and smoke shops advertising CBD oil may contain THC and/or chemicals used in “kush” that can cause serious health conditions. For more information please see the HPD press release video.
