Fayette County authorities have ordered a Clermont, Iowa business to stop selling hemp derivatives after the execution of a search warrant.
Fayette County Sheriff’s Office searched T’s Brick City Spa, located at 221 Mill Street in Clermont, after obtaining a search warrant, according to the department.
Officials received complaints that the business was selling cannabidiol, or CBD, oil and edible candy. CBD — one of dozens of cannabinoids found in cannabis plants — has been used to treat a slew of health issues, but is not legal in Iowa.
Unlisted items were taken from the business and a cease-and-desist notice was given for the sale of CBD products.
The department encouraged anyone who has purchased CBD items to return them “since the possession of these products are illegal and punishable under the Iowa Code 124.401.”
This incident is still under investigation.
