Zane Gilmer Publishes in Bloomberg Law on CBD False Labeling and Advertising
As CBD products have risen in popularity, so have the allegations against them, including false advertising and false labeling cases. These lawsuits have alleged misstatements in the amount of CBD in the product, the amount of THC in the product, and improper advertising as “all natural” or “organic.”
“Labeling and advertising lawsuits against CBD companies are often vulnerable to motions to dismiss for pleading and proof deficiencies,” writes Zane. “That said, CBD companies should be proactive in evaluating their current labeling and advertising material to ensure the accuracy of the content in order to minimize their risk of being named as a defendant in the first place.”
