Useful Information

The Police have asked us to share this information with you

There has been confirmed cases of THC infused “Nerds Rope” in North Yorkshire.

These sweets are infused with cannabis oil, the packaging presents to a professional standard which is heat sealed and has the appearance of harmless confectionary.

These Nerds contain THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol - the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis) involved in the central nervous and cardiovascular systems. In adults the effects are generally mild and short-lived but ingestion rather than inhalation is associated with longer lasting effects.

As children often have a smaller body mass than adults the effects may be more profound:

• Loss of coordination

• Hallucinations

• Nausea/vomiting

• Lethargy, collapse or loss of consciousness

• Cardiovascular. 

Nerds can be purchased online with many schools/ parents not realising they contain cannabis and a safeguarding issue for our Youth population.
