How to Sell CBD on Amazon
Listing Guidelines for CBD on Amazon
All listings and products on Amazon must comply with all laws and regulations, including Federal and State laws. Amazon prohibits the listing and sale of ingestible hemp products that contain CBD and other cannabinoids, including lozenges, e-liquids, sprays, and oils.
If you create a listing for ingestible hemp products selling CBD on Amazon and other cannabinoids, your listing will be removed, and your account may be permanently suspended.
The only ingestible hemp products that are allowed to be listed and sold on Amazon are products that contain cold-pressed hemp seed oil from the Cannabis sativa plant and that do not contain CBD, THC, or any cannabinoids.
All products derived from cold-press hemp seed oil which do not contain CBD, THC, or any cannabinoids must be compliant with Amazon policy; the ingredients must be attributed correctly and be described appropriately.
