Salt Lake City, UT — In a report released Thursday, May 31, the Disease Control and Prevention Centers found that from October through January, as many as 52 people grew ill after using synthetic products falsely labeled as cannabidiol, or CBD.

CBD is a chemical compound, known as a cannabinoid, that can be extracted from Cannabis plants to be used for medicinal or supplemental purposes. It delivers a wide range of benefits due to its powerful antioxidant, anticonvulsive, antiemetic, anti-inflammatory, anxiolytic and antipsychotic properties. Unlike its notorious cousin, THC, CBD does not make the user high. It is becoming the healthy alternative to pain relievers and pharmaceuticals, as it does not come with a list of side effects.

This week’s CDC report depicted more than half of the 52 possible cases either tested positive for a synthetic compound called 4-CCB. The product brand reported by all cases was “Yolo CBD Oil”. Efforts to determine what company manufactures Yolo CBD Oil were unsuccessful.

No charges were filed or stores were raided based on the illnesses, as stated by Lt. Ryan Van Fleet, head of major crimes in the State Bureau of Investigation.

This year, the state Legislature passed reforms legalizing CBD for the general public and creating a system register and test products for quality. State Sen. Evan Vickers is a Republican pharmacist, who sponsored the new law. “It does make it legal for people to purchase it,” he stated. “We just want to make sure that if they are going to purchase it, that it is safe.”

Vickers states the new law should prevent people from taking synthetics falsely marked as CBD.
