The CBD companies targeted by last December’s federal crackdown – “Operation CBDeceit” – last week agreed to administrative consent orders with the Federal Trade Commission that bars them from “allegedly illegal conduct” with some having to pay fines.

California-based Reef Industries was ordered to pay an $85,000 fine, according to FTC documents. Steve’s Distributing (aka Steve’s Goods) was fined $75,000; Bionatrol Health was fined $20,000; Epichouse LLC (First Class Herbalist CBD) was fined $30,000; and HempmeCBD was ordered to pay $36,254.

The sixth company, CBD Meds, was not issued a fine but was ordered to notify customers of the FTC order. Each agreement was unanimously approved by the commission.
