Regulations on buying and shipping CBD

In the last years, many countries worldwide started legalising the usage and shipping of CBD products as long as they contain a low concentration of THC.

In Europe & USA

In the USA, CBD products containing less than 0.3% THC can be legally purchased and sent by mail within the same country, whereas in the EU, a THC concentration of up to 0.2% is allowed.

In Canada

Canada has legalised all cannabis products both for medicinal and recreational purposes. However, there are limits on the quantities one is allowed to possess in public.

In Australia

Australia has strict regulations and only allows buying and shipping CBD products containing less than 0.005% THC.

Since the regulations on buying and shipping CBD products can vary so much from country to country, we strongly recommend shippers check what rules apply in both countries of collection and delivery, as well as the courier regulations before booking a delivery.


How to pack CBD products for shipping internationally

When shipping CBD products, make sure you prepare your parcel well. Follow these steps for correctly packing CBD oil, beauty products, edibles and other CBD products for international shipping:


Don’t remove the original packaging as it serves as an additional layer of protection.


Put the CBD product in a leak-proof Ziplock bag to avoid any leakage and wrap it in bubble wrap.


Fill your box with cushioning materials and place your package in the middle.


Seal the box with adhesive tape. Also, tape in the corners and edges to prevent it from tearing during transport.

FAQ’s about shipping products and oils made from CBD and hemp

Is insurance included when shipping CBD or hemp products and oils?

When shipping other types of CBD or hemp products the insurance depends on the logistics provider and their regulations.

Liquids, including hemp and CBD oil, are on the list of prohibited and restricted items of most courier companies, however, people ship hemp or CBD oil abroad and in Europe among other belongings. Please consider that shipping such items is under the responsibility of the customer so that insurance does not cover any damages of restricted items.

Can I ship CBD products with every courier company?
It is important to note that not all courier companies will ship your CBD products internationally or domestically. For example, DHL, UPS and TNT will not ship products containing cannabis. Each courier has specific rules and requirements for different shipments and services, so we recommend checking this further with the designated courier for your route. When booking Express or Regular plus shipping services, please make sure not to include these items as the courier will refuse to collect the parcel. If you need further assistance, you can reach us by chat, phone or email before shipping to discuss your options further.
