NORRISTOWN, Pennsylvania (WPVI) — Officials are warning the community about illegal drugs found in CBD gummies sold at three Montgomery County locations.

District Attorney Kevin Steele was joined by police chiefs from several departments on Friday to announce the discovery.

Steele said both fentanyl and heroin were found in Strictly Delta gummies called “Delta 8 THC 600 MG Happy Cubes” sold at three Tobacco Hut stores in the county.


The gummy bears have caused two overdoses, Steele said. Both victims have recovered.

Prosecutors said the overdose led to an investigation. Undercover cops found two flavors of Delta 8 THC 600 MG Happy Cubes, Juicy Pineapple and Blueberry Lemonade, laced with illegal drugs.

A search warrant was executed on Thursday evening.

“We don’t yet know if other items from the stores contain deadly drugs. The tests are still ongoing. We also don’t know if this is a widespread issue, but we are working with law enforcement agencies at the local, state and federal levels to determine that,” Steele said.

Steele also had a warning about “Urb Extrax” and “Packwood’s Coned,” both of which allegedly contained fentanyl.

Anyone who purchased these items in Montgomery County and still has them in their possession is cautioned not to eat them.

Instead, you are asked to contact the Montgomery County Detective Bureau at 610-278-3368 or to call the local police department to turn them over for testing.
