Officers from Nottinghamshire Police have been made aware of that CBD oil that should only be dispensed on your tongue has been wrongly packaged and sold as a vape liquid from a Nottingham store.

When vaped, the oil can have the potential to cause health problems, including a potential risk of lipoid pneumonia.

The wrongly packaged products have been sold through Big Vapes in Ilkeston Road, Nottingham. The remaining items have been removed from store today (Friday 29 November 2019.)

If you have purchased Leaflabs CBD Vape Liquid from Big Vapes Ilkeston Road you are strongly advised to not use the product and if you feel unwell you should seek medical attention.

Detective Inspector Paul Lefford, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “While it is believed that vapes should not be able to process the oil, it is thought that if diluted with other vape liquids, it could be inhaled.

“This has the potential to have a negative impact on your health and it is recommended that you do not use Leaflabs CBD Vape Liquid brought from this store as a result.

“If you have used the liquid in a vape and have experienced chest pains, excessive coughing or have difficulty breathing, please consult a doctor as soon as possible.

“I’d also like to add that we do not believe there is an issue with any other product by Leaflabs and the issue is isolated to this store, of which, all remaining products have been removed.”
