If you own a marijuana dispensary, and you want to expand your services beyond the confines of your store, it's time to consider CBD delivery. Providing delivery services allows you to provide CBD oil to customers who might not be able to visit your shop, or who lack access to much-needed services. However, before you begin your cbd delivery service, it's crucial that you understand the regulations you'll need to adhere to. Because CBD oil is still considered a controlled substance, you'll need to avoid mistakes that could put you in jeopardy for penalties, fines and criminal charges. Here are three steps you need to take when providing CBD delivery services.
Understand the Regulations
If you're going to be shipping CBD oil through the mail, you'll need to understand the regulations that pertain to the practice. First, you can only ship CBD oil that's derived from hemp. Cannabis-derived CBD oil is prohibited from mail delivery services. Second, there are different regulations that will need to be followed, depending on the mail service you'll be using.
When using UPS as your shipping agent, you'll need to adhere to all federal regulations regarding CBD oil delivery services. In addition to the hemp-only CBD oil deliveries, you'll also need to adhere to the specific THC-level limits.
When shipping CBD oil through the US postal service - USPS - you'll need to abide by new federal regulations that require you to include a signed, self-certification letter regarding the product you're shipping. You'll also need to adhere to the hemp-only requirement, as well as the THC-limits.
Take Care With Deliveries to Foreign Countries
If you plan to provide delivery of your CBD products to foreign countries, you'll need to take care to avoid problems with those deliveries. While CBD oil is legal in many countries, there are many countries that prohibit the use of the product. Not only that, but many countries prohibit the shipment of CBD oil across their borders. Before you provide shipment to any foreign country, take the necessary steps to ensure that no laws are being broken.
Package Your CBD Products Carefully
Finally, if you'll be providing delivery service for your CBD products, be sure that you package your shipments properly. First, ensure that your products are properly documented and that you include any required certification. Second, always choose the right sized boxes for your products, and prevent leakage and breakage by including packing peanuts and airbags in each package.
