Why You Can't Buy CBD on Amazon

Hands with credit card shopping for CBD onlineCBD, officially known as cannabidiol, is a chemical compound extracted from the cannabis sativa plant. This plant comes in several varieties including hemp or marijuana. 

CBD is consumed by mouth, applied to the skin, and or smoked. It does not give you a high sensation like THC, a psychoactive compound also found in marijuana, would. 

Buying CBD is not as easy as one might think. CBD is extremely popular, so the first place people often look for it is Amazon.

Big mistake.

Many retailers sell "hemp products" on Amazon, happy to let you believe that they actually contain CBD. They do not.

Listed below are reasons as to why you can't buy CBD on Amazon.

Amazon has a list of policies that they expect their sellers to follow strictly. One of those policies is that drug selling is forbidden on the site. CBD is considered a drug by Amazon, so that is one reason as to why Amazon does not approve of it. 

Amazon Seller Central said that 'products containing cannabidiol (CBD), a Schedule I Controlled Substance, including but not limited to: Rich Hemp Oil containing CBD, Full-spectrum hemp oil containing CBD, Products that have been identified as containing CBD by LegitScript cannot be sold on the site." 

While this Amazon policy has been written in stone, there are still people who are disobeying this policy and selling CBD, but the majority of Amazon sellers are actually selling hemp seed oil which contains no CBD. If you do happen to see something that appears to be CBD on Amazon, don't trust it.

Amazon is one of the world's most trusted websites. But when it comes to CBD, it cannot be trusted. It is too risky to buy CBD on a site like Amazon. Some of the well-known CBD products that one may look for though are CBD gummies, 1000mg CBD tinctures, THC-free CBD, full spectrum CBD, or CBD topicals. Always purchase directly from a CBD retailer like Eden's Herbals that is lab tested and proven safe.
