Nearly Half of CBD Products Contained THC in Random FDA Tests

As CBD pops up in everything from cocktails to cookies, there is still much we don’t know about the products that tout its benefits. New testing from the FDA found that almost half of randomly selected cannabidiol (CBD) products also tested positive for THC, the primary active compound for marijuana, which calls into question the accuracy the labeling of CBD products.

Late last year, the FDA was asked “to conduct a sampling study of the current Cannabidiol (CBD) marketplace to determine the extent to which products are mislabeled or adulterated,” according to the recently released report. For the sampling, the FDA generated a list of 500 CBD and hemp products sold online, with 147 eventually being analyzed for 11 cannabinoids, including CBD and THC.
