Cbd wraps legal

Other countries like the UK allow CBD products shipped from the US, provided the product complies with UK law and doesn’t contain more than 1 mg of THC, regardless of how large the container is. CBD products remain illegal in some countries, like the UAE and Malaysia.

In this post, we’ll explain how to ship CBD oil across state lines, the legality of shipping CBD-based products nationally and internationally, regulations for USPS and private shipping companies, and how to properly package products for mailing.

CBD and other hemp-based products aren’t just popular in the United States; it’s an international trend. So can you mail CBD oil overseas? The answer to that depends on where it’s going. Some countries like Canada have stringent laws about selling CBD products from the US. Legally selling CBD products to Canadians requires a lengthy and complicated application process with Health Canada, their licensing agency. Unless you’re dead set on making inroads into the Canadian market, you’re likely to find the red tape outweighs any potential benefits.

The short answer is yes, provided your CBD products are hemp-based. It’s important to note that CBD can also be derived from the marijuana plant. Marijuana, the close cousin of the hemp plant, remains illegal at the federal level. Your CBD products also can’t contain more than 0.3% THC, the naturally occurring psychoactive compound found in both marijuana and hemp plants.

How to Package and Ship CBD Oil

If you plan to sell CBD oil outside of the US, you must understand the regulations of the countries you’re shipping it to before you make the sale. Failing to properly understand what’s legal and what’s not in other countries has consequences ranging from a fine to jail time.

Some online retailers also sell raw hemp or other hemp-based products. It’s common for questions to arise about how to legally ship these products to consumers. Regulations regarding mailing raw hemp or other hemp-based products through the USPS are the same as those outlined above for CBD oils and other CBD-based products. Nothing in your order can exceed 0.3% THC, and you’ll need to be prepared with documentation to prove you’re operating legally. An example of documentation that may be requested would be third-party testing results verifying the products you’re shipping contain less than 0.3% THC.

The popularity of CBD-based products has skyrocketed in the US in recent years. CBD has experienced a meteoric rise from a virtually unknown compound to rock-star status in the health and wellness market. That’s excellent news for those interested in starting a business selling CBD-based products. The global CBD market is valued at $2.8 billion. But one question that often comes up is the legality of shipping CBD in the US and abroad.

Can You Mail CBD Oil Legally?

Getting CBD oil or other CBD-based products properly labeled and ready for shipping requires a little more prep work than your average online order. Here’s how to do it like a pro.

It’s unlikely you’ll be asked to present lab reports or any other documentation listed above to mail the products. But the regulations state you may be required to present them if there’s a question about the item’s mailability or the legality of the recipient to receive it. It’s better to be safe than sorry, so keep these handy each time you’re preparing to ship a batch of orders.

Oregon Law is more straight forward. Oregon considers tobacco to be a “poisonous and deleterious” adulterant that is “injurious to health” and therefore prohibited from being combined with cannabis. Additionally, an OLCC licensed cannabis producers may not add any substance to a cannabis product that would “increase potency, toxicity or addictive potential,” specifically including both nicotine and caffeine.

One of the oldest and most popular ways to smoke cannabis is to combine it with tobacco. Blunts and spliffs are among the most popular and historically popular methods.

The real nail in the coffin under Washington law for combining cannabis and tobacco is that both products are regulated substances that can only be sold by a licensed retailer. However, licensed cannabis retailers are only allowed to sell two types of goods: cannabis products and paraphernalia. Tobacco, similarly, may only be sold by a business licensed and approved by the WSLCB. Therefore, to sell a blunt a retailer would need both a cannabis retail license and a tobacco retail license, however, under the cannabis license they are limited to only selling two product types of products. This limitation necessarily prohibits the third product, tobacco; even if they were combined into one product.

Mixing the two herbs into a single rolled joint is known as a “spliff.” Rolling a cannabis joint with a cigar wrap or hollowed out cigarillo makes a “blunt.” So, spliffs have cannabis and tobacco inside and blunts have cannabis on the inside and tobacco on the outside.

In summary, cannabis cannot currently be combined and sold with tobacco in Washington or Oregon. Other states that are currently in the process of writing and implementing their recreational cannabis laws will each have to decide for themselves whether allowing blunts, spliffs, and other cross-buzzing products is an acceptable public health risk. My humble guess is that they are unlikely to permit the combo to be sold.

There are no tobacco products sold in any Washington or Oregon cannabis retail shops. So why has this innovative and quickly growing industry failed to bring such a popular product to market? As is too often the answer in this industry, it’s because the state won’t allow it.

Given how popular and traditional blunts and spliffs are you might expect that they would be widely available in recreational cannabis retail stores across the nation…but you would be wrong.

Under Washington law, cannabis retailers may not add any substance to smokable cannabis that would change the smell, nor can they combine it with any other “foreign matter” that would be considered an adulteration during quality assurance testing. These regulations could apply to tobacco, but they are vague and would take some pretty creative rule interpretations to apply (not that the WSLCB ever get too creative how they interpret their rules).

The good news for all those who enjoy mixing their vices is that there is no prohibition in either state for consumers to combine them. Blunt wraps, rolling tobacco, and rolling papers are widely available in every city and there are plenty of how-to videos to teach you to roll your own.

Since the enactment of the 2014 Farm Bill, which defined “industrial hemp” and legalized domestic hemp production in the U.S. for the first time since the 1940s, it’s been incumbent upon law enforcement to recalibrate to say the least. Police departments, at all levels, and all across the country were unaware of the federal legalization of industrial hemp as the word simply did not get out. For some, this seems to still be the case.

The most sweeping cannabis reform law in U.S. History was enacted when President Trump signed the 2018 Farm Bill, which allows hemp cultivation broadly and commercially — not simply pilot programs for studying market interest in hemp-derived products. It explicitly allowed for the transfer of hemp-derived products across state lines for commercial or other purposes. It also puts no restrictions on the sale, transport, or possession of hemp-derived products, so long as those items are produced in a manner consistent with the law.

At the end of the day, law enforcement needs guidance and training about hemp and its new legal and regulatory framework across the country. Alongside education, the industry at-large, as well as law enforcement, desperately needs testing standardization. Field tests, such as infrared spectroscopy, need to be refined and utilized consistently. Traditionally, law enforcement has been unable to determine THC content, but rather the mere presence of THC, which is far too imprecise when dealing with legality measured by tenths of a percent.
