CLERMONT, Iowa (KCRG) - The Fayette County office seized products containing cannabidiol oil from a spa after receiving public complaints, authorities said Wednesday.

Fayette County Sheriff's officials executed a warrant at T's Brick City Spa, located at 221 Mill Street in Clermont. The store was formerly known as Krooked Halo.

The sheriff's office had taken public reports of the store selling products with cannabidiol (CBD) oil and candy containing CBD. Deputies seized products and gave a cease and desist order to the store against further sale.

CBD oil products are only legal in Iowa if a person has a proper medical marijuana card, and are only available at five state-approved locations in the state. Edible or inhalable products derived from marijuana plants are always illegal.

CBD oil products were not made legal in Iowa after a recent federal farm bill passed Congress in 2018, as Iowa law calling marijuana derivatives as a Schedule I controlled substance supersedes provisions in that federal law.

Sheriff's officials encouraged any local residents who purchased the products to turn them in to the Fayette County Sheriff's office, as possession of them is illegal.

An investigation is ongoing.
