  • Diamond CBD parent company Pot Network Holdings said its tests didn’t turn up any abnormalities but it will continue to investigate.
  • “People are taking these products in good faith, because they believe somebody is overseeing the quality of these products,” forensic toxicologist Michelle Peace said. “But there’s basically nobody.”
