The Palm Beach Police Department wants to warn citizens about CBD paste/oil. Although pure CBD oil has not yet been associated with adverse health effects, CBD vape oils may contain synthetic cannabinoids, concentrated tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and/or other hazardous compounds in addition to, or in place of, CBD oil.
Possession of THC oil is a third-degree felony and carries a possible sentence of five years in prison. Possession of cannabis in its natural form carries only misdemeanor penalties.
The CBD products that are being sold, in places such as, but not limited to, stores, wellness shops, and gas stations, are unregulated and untested.
The Palm Beach Police Department suggests following the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services for guidance regarding CBD products. Click here to view.
