70% of Cannabis Products Have Less THC Than They Claim

Dr. Corroon was featured in an article titled, "70% of Cannabis Products Have Less THC Than They Claim".

"Jamie Corroon, ND, MPH, the founder and medical director of the Center for Medical Cannabis Education in Del Mar, California, who was not involved in this study, cautions that the results are based on a small number of cannabis flower products obtained in one state.
So the results may not apply to other states or other types of cannabis products, such as vape cartridges and edibles.
However, he said this is yet another study that highlights concerns about the accuracy of cannabis product labels. Corroon has previously raised this issue with hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) products.
”Based on conversations I’ve had with industry over the years, ‘lab shopping’ is a real-world phenomenon. However, I don’t know how widespread it is,” said Corroon.
“In many states with regulated cannabis programs, enforcement resources are limited, which can make it difficult to effectively prevent this practice,” he added.
“It’s possible that our current understanding of cannabis potency has been inflated due to mislabeled products and inaccurate certificates of analysis,” said Corroon.
“[Results such as these] further underscore the need for accurate and reliable labeling,” he added, saying that this is needed for all cannabis products, including edibles and vape-cartridges.
