Can You Legally Order CBD Online and How?

CBD products are popping up on grocery store shelves and in gas stations these days. It can be really convenient if your local corner store carries the CBD products you use on a regular basis. But what if that is not the case? Can you order CBD products online instead? Is it legal to order CBD products online within the United States? Or should you look at purchasing CBD products at your local dispensary? Read on to learn more about the benefits and downfalls when it comes to ordering CBD products online.

Is It Legal to Order CBD Online?

The first place to start when looking into buying CBD products online is by looking into if it is legal where you live, and we will stick to the discussion surrounding ordering CBD products within the United States. If you find CBD products available online for shipping across the U.S. they are most likely made with hemp-derived CBD. This is because the 2018 Farm Bill passed in the United States made it legal to grow industrial hemp, which contains less than 0.3 percent tetrahydrocannabinol, leaving plenty of room for CBD instead. However, the CBD industry in the U.S. is still widely unregulated and developing rapidly. The specifics for what is legal where you live will depend on federal, state, and local regulations. You should always do a bit of research first, to make sure that you are ordering a safely manufactured CBD product.

But even if it is legal, should you buy CBD products online from just any website? Are websites like Amazon, Etsy, and eBay good places to look for good CBD? Or are they just good at showing a lot of results?

What Are the Benefits Of Ordering CBD Online?

The most obvious benefit of ordering CBD products online is convenience. We order most products online these days, and it only seems natural that CBD products would follow suit. If you live in a state where recreational or medical dispensaries are not legal, then this can make it especially difficult to purchase CBD products, but ordering online is a great workaround for that. All products offered online will most likely contain 100 percent CBD or hemp-derived CBD, in order to fit within U.S. regulations. That means that you can be more certain that products you order online are made from CBD isolates or hemp, instead of its cousin plant. If that is something you are looking for, then ordering CBD products online could be s simple solution. However, it can also be a potentially risky option if you do not do the right amount of research.

What Are the Potential Drawbacks Of Ordering CBD Online?

Websites like Amazon make it easy to find CBD products made with hemp oil and often provide free and fast shipping. However, they also make it more difficult to verify how a certain CBD product is made and what the potential effects are. When you are looking into different CBD products, it is important to also look into the third-party laboratory analysis for the products as well. Any reputable and responsible manufacturer of CBD oil or CBD products will be able to easily provide this kind of information. It will provide you with exactly what is included in the CBD product you might be using, right down to the most minor ingredient. However, every ingredient makes difference if you are using CBD products as a potentially beneficial medicine. It’s best to go straight to the manufacturer’s website to find this information, or to reach out to their customer service team to request it.

Always Look at CBD Ingredients

You will also want to take a close look at the other ingredients listed on the label of any CBD product. These will also play a factor in the way the CBD product works with your body. For example, if you have any dietary restrictions, you should make note of the ingredients a CBD edible is made with as well as how the CBD was made. Or more generally, if you are buying a CBD tincture, you will want to make sure that it doesn’t contain any potentially harmful thinning agents. Take a close look at the ingredients list and compare it to the laboratory analysis so that you know exactly what you are purchasing.

Mislabeling in the Market

There are, unfortunately, a lot of mislabeled CBD products available in the market today. Some products might say they offer 100 percent CBD, but they could be using CBD derived from hemp, which still holds the potential of containing small amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol. Other times, CBD products will be made with CBD isolates and be lacking potentially beneficial compounds such as terpenes, which can offer whole-plant medicine instead. It might take a bit more time and research when buying a CBD product online, but the time spent will be well worth it.
