US weed company sued for not getting people high

The complainants sued the company over the potency of its product stating that the weed was not strong enough.

A piece of outlandish news has surfaced from United State’s California where two individuals have reportedly slapped a Marijuana company with a lawsuit over the potency of its product stating that the weed was not strong enough and was unable to give them a sufficient high.

The lawsuit was filed against DreamFields Brands which specializes in the cannabis business by two dissatisfied customers Jasper Centeno and Blake Wilson who accused the company of intentional misrepresentation, false advertising, and unjust enrichment along with other mentionable charges specifically pointing to the amount of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which is a psychoactive compound in marijuana that is responsible for getting a person high.

Christin Cho, representing the plaintiffs said that the company sells its product with the tag “the one joint that will get you to Mars quicker than Elon Musk” but that seems far from the truth. The complaint quoted the findings of Weed Week, which tests cannabis products to determine their THC levels, Weed Week found that a product that was marketed with a label of 46 percent THC content, in reality, consisted of only 23-27 percent of THC.

The litigation further read that the consumers are willing to pay more for cannabis products with higher THC content, and expect to pay less for products with lower THC content. It added, that by labelling its products with higher THC numbers, the accused are overcharging consumers and that the complainants brought this to protect Californian cannabis consumers from being overcharged.

Centeno and Wilson said they paid a premium price for Jeeter products and were overcharged since the joint they finally got was of a weaker grade. Thus, by suing the company they are seeking damages including restitution and an injunction against the company besides retrieving the attorney fees for the case.

DreamFields in its justification called the allegation as baseless and ridiculous and stated that the allegations regarding their THC levels are false. The statement issued by the company read “We take pride in our compliance and commitment to state-mandated testing procedures, including independent, third-party testing. The product and our integrity are something we truly value as a company, and take all the proper and legal steps before our product hits the shelves.” The California Department of Cannabis Control mandates companies to mention the THC content on a label that must be within 10% of the actual THC content in the final product.
