I wish you could buy CBD Oil on Amazon. Some of you probably already do. The first reason you shouldn’t buy CBD Oil on Amazing is because:
Amazon does not allow for the sale of CBD Oil on their platform.
I know that doesn’t make sense. You’ve probably already gone to Amazon and typed in CBD oil into their search and saw a slew of results that showed up.
Those sellers are violating Amazon’s Seller policies.
The rules for selling on Amazon aren’t publicly available. You have to be registered as a seller on Amazon in order to view this policy. Since you may or may not be a seller, here’s an excerpt from section 7.a of the Drug Products and Ingredients section of Amazon’s Drugs & Drug Paraphernalia Policy.
7. Drug listing must not be for controlled substances or products containing controlled substances, such as:
a. Products containing cannabidiol (CBD), a Schedule I Controlled Substance, including but not limited to:
i. Rich Hemp Oil containing cannabidiol (CBD) ii. Products that have been identified as containing CBD by Legit Script
If that wasn’t enough proof that you should not be buying CBD Oil on Amazon, take a look at the search results. You’ll notice one huge problem.
None of the products on Amazon clearly state that their products contain Cannabidiol (CBD)
I ask you this. If none of the products are clearly stating that they contain CBD, why would you want to buy CBD from them?
Sure. there are plenty of results for Hemp Oil. CBD oil that can legally be purchased online, can ONLY be made from Hemp, so I can understand the confusion. However, not all Hemp Oil contains CBD.
You know how you can buy seedless fruits? You can also buy Hemp Oil that doesn’t contain CBD.
If you’re going to buy CBD, you should be looking for bottles that are clearly labeled and state that they contain CBD. Take our CBD Oil for example; Our CBD Oil, clearly states on the label that our products are Full Spectrum CBD Oil and that it contains 500mg of cannabidiol (CBD) in each bottle.
If those weren’t enough reasons to stop yourself from buying CBD oil on Amazon, I’ll give you one more.
CBD isn’t cheap (even for a business owner), and prices from many of the listings on Amazon are so low… it’s almost too low.
This might be stating the obvious, but running a business is expensive. There’s branding, marketing, employees, shipping, fulfillment, warehousing fees… and getting good quality organic, American grown CBD Oil isn’t cheap.
What I’m ultimately trying to say is that… if you’re paying less than $40 for a 500mg bottle of CBD Oil, two things are happening:
- The buyer is selling the product for a very small profit margin – which isn’t sustainable for a business. OR
- The bottle doesn’t really contain CBD.
with all that being said…
If that wasn’t enough to convince you to stop buying CBD Oil on Amazon, I don’t know what is. You should have been convinced on the first argument I provided you. You should not be buying CBD from companies that knowingly violate Amazon’s seller policy. It’s not ethical.
Someday, things will change.
Thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill (the read is a doozy), CBD made from Hemp is legal to sell online ONLY if it contains <0.3% THC.
Despite this bill being passed, there’s still a lot of legislation that needs to be passed in each and every state, as well as for the banks that handle Amazon’s credit card processing.
Until these new requirements in legislation are met, Amazon cannot handle any credit card processing for the sale of CBD products.
In the meantime, if you’re up for a sales pitch.
