CBD retailer gets hemp shipment back from NYPD

The owner of a CBD store in Brooklyn, New York, has claimed a shipment of hemp that was seized by the New York Police Department last month when officers confused it with marijuana.

Oren Levy, who owns Green Angel CBD, said his brother Ronen picked up the 106 pounds of hemp from the NYPD on Monday.

“They actually sealed it normally. I was surprised,” Levy said.

Levy told the New York Post that the shipment from Fox Holler Farms in Vermont contained hemp with 0.14% THC, well below the 0.3% federal limit.

Ronen Levy was arrested on marijuana charges in November when he tried to pick up the shipment from the NYPD.

The criminal charges against Levy were dropped in mid-December.
