IE: Govt recalls cannabis oil over high THC content

The Irish government has recalled a batch of Dutch CBD oil after tests discovered that it contains illegal THC levels.

Cannabis and hemp oil is legal for sale in Ireland provided the THC content remains below 0.2%, meaning users cannot get high from it. The Food Safety Authority of Ireland polices the industry and it has recalled 10ml bottles of EUPHORIA CBD Full Spectrum Oil extra strong 20% for breaching regulations.

Distributors have been forced to withdraw the affected bottles, while retailers were asked to strip their shelves of the products and inform their customers about the presence of THC in the oils.

Cannabis remains an extremely contentious issue in Ireland. It legalized medicinal cannabis back in 2016, but the vast majority of patients have far been unable to secure it as the government dithered over appointing a supplier. A group of doctors has vehemently opposed marijuana legalization.
