Can I buy CBD on Amazon?
As the demand to buy cbd oil online increases, many online marketplaces are dealing with the legal hurdles of CBD. As is the case with many new products, retailers have had to adjust their policies to align with federal rules and regulations. Amazon is no different.
Amazon.com is the largest online marketplace in the US, and third largest in the world. In 2017 there were almost 400 million products available for sale on the site. Those product offerings resulted in more than 5 billion product sales. Despite the immense volume, CBD products did not contribute to Amazon’s 177.9 billion dollars in revenue, but why?
CBD is cataloged in the Drugs and Drug Paraphernalia category of restricted products, under Amazon’s Selling Policies and Seller Code of Conduct. The restriction clearly identifies CBD and related Cannabidiol products as being prohibited from marketplace listings.
The prohibited listings include synthetic CBD and:
The following cannabidiol (CBD) and Hemp products:
- Rich Hemp Oil containing concentrated cannabidiol (CBD)
- All non-ingestible products that contain cannabidiol/cannabinoid (CBD)
- All ingestible products, including dietary supplements, that contain cannabidiol/cannabinoid (CBD)
- Hemp products containing Resin or THC (tetrahydrocannabinol)
- Hemp (or any cannabis Sativa L. strain) seeds capable of germination
Although CBD has been banned from Amazon listings, that has not stopped sellers from capitalizing on the keyword. Searching for “CBD Oil” returns 760 results, many of which are Hemp Oil products. Unfortunately, the products are making claims about health benefits commonly associated with CBD. Research, on the other hand, does not support those claims for simple Hemp oil. A closer look reveals the “CBD” products available on Amazon extract their oil from Hemp seeds, which contain trace quantities of Cannabidiol (<25ppm) at most.
CBD is not available on Amazon
Don’t be fooled by imitation CBD oils. If the label does not have CBD, Cannabidiol, and/or Cannabinoids listed as an ingredient; it’s not active CBD. Lynx CBD offers the best CBD products from the best CBD companies. Look no further for your Cannabinoid needs than the Lynx CBD marketplace and shop.
