          What is the problem with those two CannaVative products?

          TO: All patients who purchased Sage N Sour Live, lot#1588828195779887 and Black Cherry Soda Live, Lot#3092899899644166 products produced by The CannaVative Extracts, LLC

          RE: Bisabolol terpene

          The advertised content values for Bisabolol terpene were inaccurate on the labels. The laboratory testing results were found to be in error and the above listed products do not contain the levels of Bisabolol reported on the labels. The products contain a package insert stating that Bisabolol inhibits cancer cell growth and fights leukemia; this statement is not approved by the FDA.

          FDA disclaimer states, “These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.”

          Patients who have the above mentioned products in their possession may return them to the dispensary in which the purchase was made.
