Consumer sues over Oregon CBD label mixup

A CBD labeling error in Oregon has spawned a lawsuit by a consumer who unintentionally got high from THC in one of the tinctures.

According to The Oregonian, state marijuana regulators learned that Select – which does business as Cura Cannabis and is owned by multi-state cannabis operator Curaleaf – apparently mixed up bottles of tinctures during the labeling process. That led to tinctures with high levels of THC being mislabeled as containing only CBD.

Curaleaf said the mix-up was simple “human error” at its manufacturing plant, The Oregonian reported.

The Oregon Liquor and Cannabis Commission  ordered a product recall on Sept. 21 for at least 630 bottles of tinctures. But, according to The Oregonian, it’s unclear what penalties the company might face.

Then, on Sept. 29, a consumer who inadvertently got high from the mislabeled tinctures – Idaho resident Jason Crawforth – filed suit against the company in federal court.

Regulators are aware of at least 12 consumers who have used the recalled products.
