According to a recent email sent by CEO Nick Green on June 17th, the trusted and beloved natural marketplace Thrive Market stopped selling CBD. But why?
Per Green, Thrive Market, “…received a notice from our merchant processor demanding that we cease the sale of all hemp / CBD products.” Green goes on to note in his email how, “we unfortunately have no choice but to comply, so I wanted to let you know that we’ll be removing our assortment as early as the end of this week.”
Let’s break this down. Firstly, the reality that Thrive Market stopped selling CBD is not on behalf of the wishes of Green. It’s because of this “merchant processor”.
