Cannabis and CBD Companies Subject to Increased Prop 65 Exposure

Cannabis and CBD Companies Subject to Increased Prop 65 Exposure

What is Prop 65 and what does it require?

Cannabis and CBD companies must get ready for elevated liability risk due to California’s Proposition 65 statute. THC has been included on the list of chemicals for which Prop 65 warnings are necessary. The Prop 65 statute has identified THC as one of the chemicals that bring about reproductive harm. As no safe harbor level has yet been recognized, that means any amount of THC in a product sold in California requires a compliant Prop 65 warning. This white paper discusses why companies that work with cannabis or CBD should begin plans to alleviate their risk under Prop 65 as the rule becomes effective January 3, 2021.
