Important Card Brand Regulations, State Laws & Industry Recognized Best Practices

Hemp derived CBD, hemp flower, vapes, tobacco, kratom, and recreational paraphernalia are federally regulated products. Prior to launching an e-commerce store it’s important to do some research to understand state and federal guidelines relevant to what you can and cannot publish online.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) guidelines strictly prohibits the use of certain words and phrases in online and print marketing materials that could be interpreted as unsubstantiated medical claims. *Reference sources; FTC Publication:

“Companies made unsupported claims that their oils, balms, gummies, coffee, and other goods could treat serious diseases such as cancer and diabetes.” Press Release: FTC and FDA Warn Florida Company Marketing CBD Products about Claims Related to Treating Autism, ADHD, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and Other Medical Conditions, Oct. 22, 2019, available at:

U.S. States Where CBD Is Still Illegal (*September 2021): 

    • Idaho

    • Iowa

    • Nebraska

    • North Dakota.

    • Kansas:  No products intended for human consumption: vape carts, flower, cigarettes, teas, etc. Extremely restrictive law. Industrial uses only.

    • Washington D.C.: 

      D.C. classifies all extracts from cannabis as hashish, a term which was not included in the legalization initiatives. This means CBD possession could be charged as possession of hashish, which would have serious consequences, including significant jail time.

3. States Where CBD Edibles (gummies, candies, chewable foods) Are Banned (*September 2021).

    • Maine

    • New York

    • North Carolina

    • Ohio

4. Your shopping cart drop down selection menu should restrict the sale of any hemp/CBD products to those relevant states. Furthermore, your website footer page or shopping cart should contain a statement information prospective customers that you do not sell to nor ship to certain states.


 

Other Restrictions and Prohibitions (Septembe 2021).

  • Indiana Prohibited: Smokable CBD flower.
  • Kentucky Prohibited: Hemp cigarettes; hemp cigars; chew, dip, smokeless material consisting of hemp leaf material or hemp floral material; and hemp leaf material or floral material teas.
  • New Hampshire: Guideline issued by the New Hampshire Liquor Commission in 2018 and revised in June 2019 states that Hemp-CBD may not be added to foods or alcohol products in New Hampshire.
  • Texas: The sale and marketing of Hemp CBD foods and cosmetics is allowed so long as these products meet specific testing and labeling requirements. However, the definition of “consumable hemp product” does not include smokeable products. HB 1325 expressly prohibits the processing and manufacture of products “containing hemp for
    smoking.” “Smoking” is defined as “burning or igniting a substance and inhaling the smoke or heating a substance and inhaling the resulting vapor or aerosol.”
  • Vermont: CBD cannot be combined with meat or dairy; maple syrup has its own rules.
