What CBD products am I allowed to sell?
Square currently allows sellers in the EAP to accept payments for hemp and hemp-derived CBD products that have less than, or equal to, 0.3% THC in most states within the United States. If you sell CBD products, including, for example, oil, flower, seeds, lotions, topicals, wax, etc., your business is required to be in the EAP. These products must be produced and sold in compliance with applicable law, including, but not limited to, the 2018 Farm Bill, and relevant state laws.
What products am I not allowed to sell?
Square does not allow any sellers to sell marijuana, marijuana derived products, products that contain more than 0.3% THC, illegal drugs, and products that otherwise violate Square’s Payment Terms (e.g. kratom, kava, paraphernalia, bongs, pipes, etc.).
Can I sell hemp flowers?
Hemp flower is permitted only if you provide lab certification confirming the THC level and ingredients. Please note that marijuana sales are not allowed, and Square has no plans to support such sales.
Can I sell CBD vapes online?
Square does not currently generally restrict the CNP sale of CBD-only vapes. However, please be aware that we cannot support the sale of CNP age-restricted products, including e-cigarettes (please see Section 3 of the Payment Terms). Additionally, if there are local rules around selling CBD-only vaping products in your business’ jurisdiction, those must be complied with.
If I’m not a CBD business, and carry only a few CBD products, do I still need to be in the program?
If you sell any CBD products, no matter how few, you must be in the EAP.
What is Square’s stance on medical claims associated with CBD?
Our program is industry leading, which means we must be extra diligent about ensuring we have a robust EAP framework. Medical claims are particularly important for CBD products, so we have strict standards associated with such claims and CBD products. Furthermore, we want our financial system to be fair to everyone, including to buyers.
What can I say, or not say, about my CBD products?
While we can’t provide legal advice, or a list of terms or phrases that are allowed or not allowed, our review process is built on FDA and other relevant guidelines. We don’t allow any claims that your CBD products may be used to cure, treat, or aid conditions such as anxiety, inflammation, depression, PTSD, ADHD, Cancer, or any other health conditions.
Where can I find more information about CBD regulations?
The FDA, among others, has helpful guidance around CBD. You can learn more on the FDA’s website. However, you should consult with an attorney, and CBD experts, to ensure your CBD products and practices are compliant.
What happens if Square identifies a problem with my CBD products?
If we find an issue with your product(s), we’ll ask you to address the issue, and/or remove the item(s), and may suspend your account during this review. If you do not remedy the issue(s), your account will be deactivated.
Furthermore, if we observe continued violations of our CBD policies, the account will be subject to deactivation and future exclusion from the CBD EAP.
