Lowell Herb Co. Catches Lawsuit Over Inaccurate THC Content Labeling

The complaint alleges that the companies violated consumer protection laws

Dovel & Luner, a boutique litigation law firm filed a class action suit against Lowell Farms Inc. (OTCQX:LOWLF) and Cypress Manufacturing Company on behalf of California consumers who purchased cannabis products with inaccurate THC content labels. The lawsuit alleges that defendants who make, sell, distribute and market “Lowell Herb Co.” brand cannabis products overcharged consumers by illegally selling products whose THC content was represented as substantially higher than it actually was.

The complaint, filed in the Superior Court of the State of California County of Los Angeles, alleges that Lowell Farms and Cypress Manufacturing Company violated the consumer protection laws of California, including California’s Unfair Competition Law and False Advertising Law, among other violations.

The lawsuit states, “Because THC is responsible for most of the psychological effects that cannabis produces, many consumers prefer and seek out cannabis with a higher THC content. The THC content of cannabis products largely drives the demand for those products. Because of this, cannabis products with higher THC content sell for substantially higher prices.”

California regulations require that the THC content listed on the label be within a particular margin of error of what is actually in the product. Specifically, the THC “claimed to be present on a label,” must be within “plus or minus 10.0%” of the true THC content of the product.
