Wellness Connection of Maine has recalled two varieties of its medical marijuana from four of the state's dispensaries.
According to necn affiliate WCSH, the operator of the dispensaries is recalling a portion of "Blue Dream" and "LA Confidential" after finding high microbe levels during lab tests.
The company said the small group of patients impacted will be contacted by mail. WCM is offering to refund the purchase price ore replace the product. It said it has not received any reports of adverse effects related to the use of the product.
Wellness Connection said there are no national standards for contamination of medical marijuana, which is legal at the state level, but still considered illegal in federal law. Wellness Connection said it tracks its medical marijuana from seed to sale as required by state law.
The company also says it has set up its own testing procedures and quality standards that include the use of a third-party laboratory, which it says exceeds industry standards.
