Cannibidiol (CBD) Fulfillment and Shipping

Producing and shipping CBD direct-to-consumer is a billion dollar industry these days - but it presents some unique issues and tricky regulatory hurdles. When it comes to shipping CBD directly to online consumers, there are a lot of unique laws from state-to-state that you have to make sure you comply with. But before we get into how to ship CBD direct-to-consumer, let's talk about what CBD is.

CBD is a chemical compound found within cannabis plants. But unlike THC, which is another element found in cannabis plants, CBD does not contain the psychoactive ingredient found in marijuana that produces a high. CBD is consumed or applied for the relief of chronic pain, anxiety, insomnia, depression, and much more. It can also be found in various different forms of consumption - oil is the most common formulation of CBD, but you can also find CBD extract, vaporized liquid, and an oil-based capsule.

How to Ship CBD to Different States

Since the legislation of the Hemp Farming Act in 2018, the use of hemp-based products is now legal in all 50 states. However, even with the passing of the Farm Bill, you still need to do some hefty research before you start shipping CBD across state lines since each state has their own unique rules and regulations on CBD.

Recent USPS guidance states that you can mail hemp and hemp-based products like CBD with a maximum THC content of 0.3%, provided that you comply with all applicable local, state, and federal laws regarding the production, processing, distribution, and sale of hemp. Although regulations around CBD are beginning to lighten up, if you plan to ship CBD products to consumers at scale, you need to do so with a partner who can help you navigate the complex laws to make sure your distribution is fully compliant. 

CBD Order Fulfillment & Shipping

If you run a CBD business and would like to outsource the order fulfillment leg of your company, you may find it difficult to find the proper fulfillment partner that can make sure you are shipping your CBD eCommerce products in accordance with the law. Not all fulfillment centers or 3PLs are willing to navigate the complicated regulations CBD is subject to, and you want to make sure you are working with a fulfillment partner you can rely on to comply with the law.
