MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A woman says she got horribly sick after using a bottle of CBD oil that turned out to be a fake.
The oil is derived from cannabis and used to treat pain.
Now, she’s warning other potential victims.
Donna Minnick suffers from chronic pain.
“I have back pain, siatica and I have some joint pain in my ankle where I’ve had some surgeries,”
Wanting to stay away from opioids like Oxycodone, she bought a bottle of CBD oil from a local smoke shop two weeks ago.
“I heard such good reports. I thought it was worth a try.”
Using it made her nauseous.
She says that didn’t shock her since it was her first time.
She stopped taking it for a week and then started up again.
That’s when things quickly got bad.
“I got really sick. I felt really dizzy. I felt drugged. I felt like the room was going to start spinning.”
It turns out the bottle was fake.
