Paranoia and mind fog haunts the victims reaping the consequences of Oregon Liquor and Cannabis Commision’s (OLCC) recent recall on select tincture Cura CS. Products advertised as purely CBD, but containing THC.
The recall was initiated after the OLCC received a report from a customer residing in Idaho that the tincture he purchased from them recently was actually getting him super high. The estimated 630 tainted Tincture units being sold since June 29 of this year were flawed apparently due to “human error” according to a statement made by Curaleaf to the Oregonian.
The recalled product is 1,000 mg unflavored Select Tincture pure CBD drops available only at OLCC’s licensed retailers. According to the company, after conducting tests on the product they reportedly found no traces of THC. Just last year Cura paid a record breaking $110,000 fine due to “dishonest conduct” for falsely promoting vapes containing 100% cannabis, but had no trace of it what-so-ever.
Pattern-like “flukes” of this serious nature reflect OLCC’s negligent production and lack of consumer trust. They say there is no such thing as luck however, in consideration of the DRASTICALLY differing effects of THC and CBD, OLCC’s fluked situation curved it’s way from the potentially horrific scenario(s) that could have been caused.
