Shipping CBD products internationally for medicinal purposes is very popular, yet many e-commerce sellers struggle to understand the best way to ship them while following all relevant regulations. Check the guidelines on shipping CBD oil, gummies, cream and other CBD products internationally via courier before booking the service.
Is it legal to ship CBD internationally? In most cases, the answer is yes if the product is THC-free, however, certain guidelines must be followed. In the last years, many countries worldwide started legalising the usage and shipping of CBD oil and other products as long as they contain a low concentration of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol, the psychoactive compound found in marijuana). In several countries and many US states, THC is still illegal.
Bear in mind that not all postal and courier companies allow CBD shipping with their services, even if CBD products are legal in the shipping countries.
Every European country has different laws regarding CBD and cannabis, so it is difficult to provide a concrete answer about CBD shipping in Europe. The laws and regulations are constantly changing, so you will have to check the status of CBD for your specific route. Regarding sending CBD oil by mail or courier in the UK, this is legal as long as the product is completely THC-free.
In the USA, while the federal limit of THC is 0.3%, the status of CBD differs in each state. In some states, you can send hemp-derived CBD by mail if the THC content is under 0.3%, while in other states, the CBD product must not contain any THC.
Canada has legalised cannabis products both for medicinal and recreational purposes. Sending CBD by mail or courier is allowed within Canada as long as the shipment follows federal, provincial and municipal government regulations. However, sending CBD privately by mail or courier across the Canadian border is not allowed.
The rules for businesses can be slightly different than for consumers. For B2B and B2C shipments, licensed companies can send CBD by courier if they have all the necessary documents and make a shipping contract with an authorised provider.
In most cases, the sender and the shipping company need to agree on the shipping conditions so both parties are aware of the nature of the goods being transported. Send us a message through the chat if this is your case, and let’s discuss the ways we can help you!
