Michigan cannabis regulator recalls Viola edibles for excessive THC – Detroit Free Press

Michigan’s Cannabis Regulatory Agency on Wednesday recalled certain marijuana edibles produced by the cannabis company Shango and branded “Viola Grandma’s Kitchen.”

The recall, which is voluntary and affects a “limited amount of marijuana-infused edible products,” was issued because Shango was both unable to demonstrate that the product was homogenous and because the product exceeds the maximum allowable tetrahydrocannabinol (THC, the major psychoactive component of marijuana) concentration per serving, the CRA said.

The recalled edibles come in varieties such as “Big Apple Dreaming,” “Uptown Espresso,” “Paradise Island” and “Auntie’s Punch,” and are produced by Shango, a vertical cannabis company with operations in Oregon, Washington, Nevada and Michigan, among other states, according to its website.

Nearly 2,200 of the affected products were sold at dispensaries including Information Entropy in Ann Arbor, Shango’s dispensary in Hazel Park, Emerald Fire Provisioning Center in Coleman (near Mount Pleasant) and Plan B Wellness Center in Detroit, generally between late May to late July.

Nearly 6,800 of the affected products are on hold at Michigan dispensaries, David Harns, a spokesperson for the CRA, said, meaning they aren’t available for customers to purchase.
