Dovel & Luner Files Class Action Against Lowell Farms and Cypress Manufacturing
SANTA MONICA – On Thursday, Dovel & Luner filed a class action against Lowell Farms Inc. and Cypress Manufacturing Company. The lawsuit was filed on behalf of California consumers who purchased cannabis products with inaccurate THC content labels.
The lawsuit alleges that Defendants, who make, sell, and market “Lowell Herb Co.” brand cannabis products, overcharged consumers by illegally selling products whose THC content was substantially lower than the amounts listed on the label.
Filed in the Superior Court of the State of California County of Los Angeles, the Complaint alleges that Lowell Farms Inc. and Cypress Manufacturing Company violated the consumer protection laws of California, including California’s Unfair Competition Law and False Advertising Law, among other violations.
“Consumers reasonably believe that they are receiving a product that has the THC content that is listed on the label,” states the Complaint. The Complaint alleges that the Lowell Herb Co. products, however, substantially overstate the amount of actual THC in the product, sometimes by “81-111%.” “Consumers are willing to pay more for cannabis products with higher THC content, and expect to pay less for cannabis products with lower THC content,” said Christin Cho of Dovel & Luner. “The Complaint alleges that by labeling its products with inflated THC numbers, Defendants are overcharging consumers. Plaintiffs brought this lawsuit to protect California consumers from being overcharged.”
