A team of attorneys from Kopelowitz Ostrow Ferguson Weiselberg Gilbert in Fort Lauderdale compared the cannabidiol, or CBD, market to the Wild West, in a putative class action lawsuit filed against Green Roads CBD in the Southern District of Florida. Their CBD Terpene Oil shows no terpenes.
Their filing accuses private company Green Roads of Florida LLC of leading the charge by misrepresenting how much CBD is in its products.
The lawsuit claims the company uses its packaging, labeling, and website to make customers think they’ve ingested more CBD than its products contain.
Green Roads spokesperson Rachel Sandler said the company plans to fight the lawsuit.
“Green Roads’ commitment to quality, purity, and transparency is unparalleled in this industry,” Sandler said. “Based on our initial review of the complaint, we believe this suit is without merit. We are now in the process of a full review, and we look forward to defending ourselves.”
“Green Roads is a leader in this Wild West of CBD products,” the complaint said. “Unfortunately, Green Roads’ success has been partially fueled by misrepresenting the levels of CBD contained in the products.”
The company’s CBD gummies, “Relax Bears,” are advertised as having a total of 300 milligrams of CBD when, according to the complaint, they really have about 258 milligrams. Likewise, the complaint alleges Green Roads claims its oil contains 17 milligrams of CBD per milliliter when it has about 13.

Their CBD Terpene oil is promoting that its oil is terpene-rich, yet their own lab reports show zero terpenes.
