Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority warning of potentially dangerous compound
he Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority has issued a warning about a potentially dangerous compound circulating in the state.
The agency is investigating reports that the compound, THC-O-acetate, was found in at least one batch, possibly more.
THC-O-acetate is at least three times more potent than THC and can be harmful if combined with medical marijuana.
Possible side effects include seizures, vomiting, and difficulty speaking.
OMMA says when purchasing a medical marijuana product from a licensed dispensary, always ask to see the Certificates of Analysis and examine the lab test results so you can ensure you’re taking a safe product home.
If the dispensary refuses to show you the product’s COAs, OMMA suggests you purchase products from another dispensary that will.
If you’ve had negative health outcomes after using a medical marijuana product purchased from a licensed dispensary, immediately contact a medical provider or the Oklahoma Center for Poison and Drug Control at 800-222-1222.
