Health Canada has recalled a batch of cannabis oil capsules due to a labelling error.
The federal agency issued the recall for the cannabis oils produced by Zenabis Ltd. after it was discovered that the capsules, which were labelled as “CBD Light gelcaps,” were, in fact, THC gelcaps.
THC is the main psychoactive compound in cannabis and often causes a feeling of being intoxicated or high.
