CBD eCommerce Fulfillment Explained In Less Than 1000 Words

Choosing the right partner can make or break your company’s logistics, customer service, and repeat purchases. Using an eCommerce fulfillment center like Shipfusion frees you from navigating the fulfillment landscape with zero stress. Below are some insights on how Shipfusion can take your business to the next level.

Is CBD Legal in the US?

The short answer is, yes, CBD is legal nationwide in the US, but legality can differ from state to state in numerous ways. When it comes to selling CBD oil and products, you’ll want to check with your state to see what your state-specific laws are around CBD. The most lenient states permit consumers to purchase almost every CBD type irrespective of its source or intended use. For example, Vermont allows its residents to use hemp or marijuana-based CBD recreationally and medically. 

Regulations, Guidelines, and Compliance for CBD eCommerce Fulfillment

When selling CBD-related products, it’s essential to be aware of the rules and regulations of the state you live in, as well as the locations you are shipping to. 

  • Federal Regulations: Make sure you conform to the federal rules provided for shipping CBD in the U.S. For example, whatever form of CBD you ship, some states require that it is made from hemp, not cannabis, and must contain 0.3% or less THC.
  • Courier Guidelines: If you use USPS, you must follow their guidelines, whereas private couriers may have different rules.
  • Farm Bill Compliance: If you are a distributor, you need to ensure your products come from a produce that is reputable, according to the Farm Bill. They need to abide by the new guidelines for growing and manufacturing CBD. If you are a farmer or grower, you will need to strictly follow the rules for farming cannabis.

Packaging and Labelling 

Following the FDA regulations for cosmetic product labelling, CBD-infused health and beauty product labels should:

  • Not be false or misleading
  • Provide the required information (includes identity statement, statement of the quantity of contents, name and place of business, distributor statement, material facts, warning or caution statements, and ingredients)
  • Properly display label information
  • Not violate the Poison Prevention Packaging Act of 1970

What to Look for on CBD Product Labels: Most reputable CBD producers will typically include the following information on their CBD product labels:

  • Amount of active CBD per serving
  • Supplement Fact Panel, including other ingredients
  • Net weight
  • Manufacturer or distributor name
  • Suggested use
  • Full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, or isolate
  • Batch or date code
