Some Vape Products Sold as CBD Spiked with Street Drugs

Some vape products sold as cannabidiol (CBD), an active ingredient in cannabis, are spiked with street drugs such as K2 or spice, AP reports.

Marketers claim CBD can treat a range of health issues, including pain and anxiety, without causing a high, the article notes. AP commissioned lab tests of 30 vape products sold as CBD around the country, and found 10 contained types of synthetic marijuana, while others had no CBD at all.

One product surveyed was Green Machine, a pod that is compatible with Juul e-cigarettes. AP reporters bought seven pods in California, Florida and Maryland, in flavors including mint, mango, blueberry and jungle juice. Four of the pods contained illegal synthetic marijuana. Only two had CBD higher than a trace level, the article notes.
