I bought a few 1" x 14" wide x 10' boards in Reno, NV a few years ago. It had been shipped to Higgens Lumber from the Ca. coast. In the unit from which I picked my boards, most were warped, cracked and twisted. My boards remained flat and the one still in my shop is okay. I like working with it, except when I turn it, It turns like it is concrete and I have to resharpen my tools a lot. Too bad you are having a bad experience with it. I like using it for some things. I have lately put some in flat faced cutting boards. It looks really nice.
