CBD retailer falsely claimed oils were heavy-metal-free, lawsuit says

A man in Florida wants a class-action brought against a Missouri-based CBD manufacturer after he says that third-party lab tests he ordered on the company’s products revealed lead and other contaminants.

Michael Davis’s complaint, filed Monday at a Florida district court, accuses Missouri-based CBD American Shaman LLC of falsely advertising its CBD products as being free of heavy metals, insecticides and other contaminants.

Davis said he purchased several CBD products from CBD American Shaman in December and January, motivated in large part by the company’s claims on its website and packaging that its products contained “no heavy metals or insecticides.”

According to the complaint, Davis later sent several unopened products to ProVerde Laboratories, the lab used by CBD American Shaman, to verify the claims.

The February test results allegedly indicated that the full-spectrum hemp-oil products failed ProVerde’s testing for copper, nickel and lead, and that the tinctures failed the yeast and mold evaluation for the microbiological contaminants test.

A spokesman for CBD American Shaman did not immediately respond to Hemp Industry Daily’s requests for comment.

Davis is seeking unspecified damages and class-action status, which would have to be granted later by a court.

    Don’t ever buy a CBD oil until you see the independent 3rd party lab results. Check the lab report to make sure that it is current and that it is specifically for the product in your hand.
