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:

U.S. States Where CBD Is Still Illegal (*September 2021):
Kansas: No products intended for human consumption: vape carts, flower, cigarettes, teas, etc. Extremely restrictive law. Industrial uses only.
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.
