If you’re a US merchant and you want to learn how to set up your Shopify store to sell hemp and hemp-derived products that contain cannabidiol (CBD), then use this page for information about some laws surrounding hemp and hemp-derived products that might apply to your business. Learn more about hemp and hemp-derived products.
Hemp is a type of plant in the cannabis sativa plant species, and produces a broad range of cannabinoids. Hemp doesn’t produce high levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), but is capable of producing high concentrations of CBD.
To sell hemp and hemp-derived products that contain CBD, you need to review and submit the Attestation for the Sale of Hemp and Hemp-Derived Products.
The Attestation for the Sale of Hemp and Hemp-Derived Products is only available to stores that are based in the United States. If the document doesn’t open in your Shopify admin, then verify that your store is a US-based store.
If you haven’t created a Shopify store yet, then go to www.shopify.com/sell/cbd to sign up for a trial store.
Laws in the United States surrounding hemp and hemp-derived products are changing, so you should consult with legal counsel before you sell these products on Shopify. Shopify can’t provide legal advice on what and where you can sell.
Before selling hemp or hemp-derived products on Shopify, review and monitor federal, state, and local laws. You should also monitor updates from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Set up your store to sell hemp or hemp-derived products
If you sell CBD products, then you can only set up email-only order and shipping notifications. SMS notifications are not supported for merchants who sell CBD products.
- Log in to your Shopify store. If you haven’t created a store yet, then go to www.shopify.com/sell/cbd to sign up for a trial store.
- Carefully review and submit the Attestation for the Sale of Hemp and Hemp-Derived Products. You need to be signed into your Shopify account as the store owner to complete this form. If you’re not the store owner, or your store address is not located in the United States, then this link will automatically redirect you to the Shopify admin. Before you sell any CBD products, make sure that you understand and submit the attestation form. After you have submitted the form, the attestation process is automatic – you don’t need to wait for a response from Shopify regarding the attestation form.
- Select and apply for a third-party payment gateway. Shopify Payments is not available for hemp or CBD products at this time. However, Shopify has partnered with third-party payment gateways that support the sale of certain hemp and/or hemp-derived CBD products. The requirements for approval may vary for each gateway. Review the requirements and apply directly to any of these gateways using the following Shopify-specific links:
- Set up email-only customer notifications for orders and shipping. You can only send notifications related to CBD products and shops by email. SMS messages aren’t supported. For steps to enable email-only customer notifications, refer to Disable your customer’s SMS notifications.
This list may not be exhaustive, and may change over time.
Hemp-derived CBD transactions are vetted more carefully by third-party payment gateways than other transactions, so the application and approval process might be more involved than usual. Third-party payment gateways take into account many factors in approving payments and rates for shops selling CBD products, including product type, whether the business was recently created, transaction history, volume, product mix, and others. Approvals are at the discretion of each third-party payment gateway, and Shopify can’t guarantee the approval of your shop.
Additionally, it is important that you know your responsibilities. Like all Shopify merchants, it’s your responsibility to follow federal, state, and local laws and the respective policies of Shopify, our app and partner ecosystem, and any third-party providers. If you have additional questions, then contact the third-party providers directly, or consult with an attorney.
Merchants using Shopify Plus can contact the Merchant Success team for guidance and dedicated support in completing the steps required to sell hemp or hemp-derived CBD products on Shopify.
Disable your customer’s SMS notifications
You can only send notifications related to CBD products and shops by email. SMS messages aren’t supported. For information about customer notifications, refer to Set up your customer’s notification options at checkout.
Hemp Based CBD Oil
CBD acts in the body on the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is located throughout the entire body. We have our own natural cannabinoids in our body that work in this system. However, plant-based cannabinoids such as THC and CBD can also influence this system. This system plays a role in many parts of the human body. As a result, CBD oil can influence a variety of conditions.
The following are just a few conditions in which our patients have been using CBD oil for:
- Difficulty Sleeping
CBD is used in these conditions just like you would use Vitamin D and calcium to help your bones, or Vitamin C to help your immune system. Just like any other supplement, CBD may or may not be beneficial for you and could have interactions with your medications. For this reason, make sure you discuss using this product with your healthcare professionals and always let your doctors know what you are taking. Bremo pharmacists are here as a resource for you as you navigate your decision regarding if this product is right for you.
