THC has been found in CBD products in Ireland.

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland have issued an urgent recall of 15 products which could see Irishmen rush to buy them before they are withdrawn.

The FSAI said today: "The implicated batches of CBD foods and food supplements contain unsafe levels of delta‐9‐tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) based on the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) acute reference dose. 

"There are no immediate dangers associated with the consumption of these products."

"Environmental health officers (EHOs) are requested to check food businesses to determine if the implicated batches of the below CBD products are available for sale. 

"If found, EHOs should seize, remove and detain the products off site; also oversee a recall, ensuring a point-of-sale notice is displayed in store and on websites if sold online."

The products include CBD oil, CBD bubble gum and CBD spray.

THC is the chemical compound of cannabis which gets people stoned where as CBD does not, hence the explosion in CBD products being used for health benefits from everything from anxiety to cancer.

The FSAI added: "Consumers should not purchase or consume any of the implicated batches of the below CBD foods and food supplements."

It is unknown whether this will lead to a stampede of people to buy the products for a bit of free THC.
