Study: Medical Marijuana “Edibles” Mostly Mislabeled

Posted by | Alcohol and Drug Use | June 24, 2015

A research team out of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine recently published a report surrounding the safety and labeling of medical marijuana products. The scope of the study was somewhat small, but the team found that the vast majority of edibles that they tested — 83% — were mislabeled- either overstating or understating the amount of THC. This research may suggest that medical marijuana users are either being cheated by mislabeled edible products or are at risk of unintentional overdose due to the mislabeling of THC levels. As a result of this study and concern across the medical field, many are calling for better oversight and regulation of the medical marijuana industry — especially when it comes to edibles.
