The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) Office of Medical Cannabis (OMC) wants people to beware of consuming hemp-derived cannabinoid products containing doses of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) above the state legal limit.

Illegal, high-dose hemp-derived products may contain hundreds of milligrams of THC per serving. With multiple servings in a package, this can add up to thousands of milligrams of THC – far above the legal limit of 5mg/serving or 50 mg/package for edibles.

These products are produced by a variety of manufacturers and if consumed may lead to adverse health effects, such as becoming unresponsive, seizures, or psychotic episodes.

MDH urges consumers to shop with caution and read labels closely.
