Cannabis oil disguised as confectionary

Nerds rope

Following a series of arrests in West Yorkshire this week, it has been identified that a large quantity of Nerds Rope sweets containing cannabis oil have been industrially manufactured.

Whilst a large amount of the contaminated product has been recovered, it is unknown at this time how much remains missing or how widely it has been distributed.

Patients who have consumed this are presenting with symptoms such as:

  • Loss of coordination
  • Hallucinations
  • Nausea/vomiting
  • Lethargy, collapse, or loss of consciousness
  • Cardiovascular problems.

It is not thought that this issue extends beyond West Yorkshire, but it cannot be ruled out. Please see attached document for further information.
