Anyone in this day looking into a new product always does one thing — check Amazon. Why’s that? Well, you can probably get whatever you want cheaper, they might offer free shipping and you can check out what people are saying in the reviews. However, it’s not so easy to accomplish all these feats when you are looking to buy CBD products. While Amazon boasts an impressive inventory of 562,382,292 items, you will not find CBD oil among the list…at first. Let’s talk about why you can’t buy CBD oil on Amazon and what to watch out for if you try.

How Come Amazon Doesn’t Sell CBD Oil?

When you’re a company selling $177 billion of stuff each year and shipping these items to all corners of the world, you can bet your sweet bottom that you are being watched. That is why Amazon doesn’t sell CBD oil. The company has a lot to lose if potentially illegal substances are being shipped under its watch.

Amazon has a strict policy on what can be sold through its online retail platform. Unfortunately, this information is not privy to the general public. To see the exact list of what’s allowed to be sold on Amazon, you must have an approved Seller’s Account.

Since the average Jane or Joe doesn’t sell items through Amazon, they have a standard Buyer’s Account. Therefore, those looking to buy CBD products on Amazon may unknowingly be buying products void of cannabinoids.

Under Amazon’s password protected list of items not allowed on Amazon, the company describes, “Products offered for sale on Amazon must comply with all laws and regulations.” They further explain, “Supplements must not contain controlled substances.”

Amazon goes into expanded detail outlining what they mean by controlled substances: “Controlled substances are drugs that are illegal, such as cocaine or heroin. Products used with controlled substances may be considered drug paraphernalia…Drug listings must not be for controlled substances or products containing controlled substances, such as products containing cannabidiol (CBD), a Schedule I Controlled Substance.”

Can CBD Oil Get You High?

If we can say it a million times in a row without having you close the page, we would. No. CBD oil will not get you high.

The reason Amazon is so strict on CBD oil is that the product is derived from the Cannabis sativa plant. This is the genus of the federally illegal schedule 1 controlled substance known as marijuana. However, it’s also the same genus of its non-psychoactive sibling, hemp.

Marijuana is the version of Cannabis sativa that has spearheaded the prohibition of the cannabis plant all the way back with the Marihuana Tax Act of 1937. Much in thanks to its most abundant cannabinoid, THC, consuming marijuana can give you a euphoric high. This definitive characteristic is what led to the government creating decades-worth of stigma around the cannabis plant.

Meanwhile, hemp suffered the consequences. Hemp is a different variety of the Cannabis sativa plant. This version of Cannabis sativa can’t get you high because it only has trace amounts of the cannabinoid THC. However, hemp does contain cannabinoids that may be therapeutic, such as CBD.

If CBD Oil Doesn’t Get You High, Why Won’t Amazon Sell It?

For a product to legally be considered hemp oil, there must be less than 0.3% of THC in the CBD products. That’s not enough to get you high, and some companies remove even those trace amounts of CBD from their oil.

With that being said, the Food and Drug Administration has only approved one CBD product for mass production. Therefore, the rest of the CBD products on the market aren’t regulated.

With almost 600,000 products being sold under the Amazon umbrella, the Seattle-based company can’t run the risk of breaking federal laws. After all, it quotes the Food and Drug Administration in its Seller’s Market Regulations. In order to save itself from breaking any federal (or global) laws, Amazon has added cannabis-derived products to its list of banned items that can’t be sold on its site.

What About Hemp Oil on Amazon?

If you are chomping at the bit to get this type of oil on Amazon, there is a workaround. However, it’s a grab-bag of quality because the company can’t divulge all of the necessary information in its listing.

If you were to type in the following phrases, you will get a list of products that actually might carry some cannabinoids in them.

These phrases are:

  • Hemp Extract
  • Hemp Oil
  • Hemp Oil Extract

Under the guise of hemp, CBD oil can be bought on Amazon just beneath the government radar. That’s because CBD oil is extracted from hemp. Therefore, companies that produce CBD products are selling them on Amazon under the hemp “oil” and “extract” moniker. Technically, they are selling what they are promoting. However, they may not be the greatest quality of CBD products out there.  

Problems with Buying CBD Oil on Amazon

While buying hemp oil extract may seem like a brilliant workaround, it also opens the door for fraud. With no one regulating the product, how do you really know you are getting an item rich with cannabinoids? You are taking a gamble — and at the prices some of these oils are being listed at on Amazon, it’s a pricey gamble to take.

One thing to keep in mind when buying hemp extracts and hoping for the best on Amazon is that you don’t want to purchase “hemp seed oil.” Hemp seed oil contains a litany of healthy fatty acids, proteins and micronutrients. However, it doesn’t contain CBD.

Hemp oil, CBD oil, hemp extract, hemp oil extract — whatever on earth you call it — is extracted by using the whole plant. When oil is extracted from the seed, there are no cannabinoids.

How to Get CBD Oil

When you are purchasing CBD products, go through a company that has its own store. Purchasing CBD oil through Amazon leaves too many unanswered questions that might cause you to waste your hard-earned money.

Your best option is to choose a reputable company like Joy Organics. Joy Organics uses only organic hemp to create high-potency CBD oil. Our phytocannabinoid-rich hemp oil is strictly whole-plant products. Therefore, it’s chock full of not only CBD but other organic compounds that strengthen these chemicals’ potency and bioavailability.

To ensure you are ordering a product that is within the federal law, is Farm Bill compliant and won’t get you high, make sure it’s a full spectrum hemp oil with zero THC. At Joy Organics, we test each batch to guarantee there is absolutely no THC in the final product.

Each month, we have our facilities tested by a third-party to ensure that we uphold the high standards we put are on ourselves in providing the world with the highest-quality CBD products.

    “Wonderful Group to work with. Everything from fantastic products, prices, customer support, beautiful packaging to fast, friendly service. Joy Organics is family and feels like family! And why it is included in my line of ‘Paulines Preferred’.”

    Pauline / Paulines Preferred

     

    “People on CBD related FB pages have messaged me asking what company I decided to go with. Of course I tell them Joy Organics! We all had miserable experiences that ranged from not receiving all items ordered to lackluster customer service. I couldn’t take it any longer so I did a Google search and that’s when I came across Todd’s videos on YouTube. I was totally blown away by his honesty on what to look for in a CBD supplier and the obstacles to watch out for along the way. Most importantly, how to get approved for a merchant account! Not to mention the customer is always right philosophy. Becca and Alyx are prompt to answer any emails. I couldn’t ask for a better support team and that’s why I will continue doing business with Joy Organics.”

    -Robin Hood / Lone Star Organic

  • OUR UNIQUE PROCESS

    Joy’s processes ensure that her products provide an effective solution while remaining at an affordable price point.

    Each of our hemp oil droplets is between 4 to 200 times smaller than the industry standard. This means that they’re more easily absorbed into the blood whether consumed orally or applied to the skin.

    Our solution was to create a water-soluble nanoemulsion technology. This patent-pending technology transforms active compounds into nano-sized emulsions.

    Our highly bioavailable products are not only extremely effective, they’re also extremely economical. You’ll get the same results from a much smaller amount of what we create than you would from our competitors. This is better for you and your wallet.

  • JOY’S STORY

    Joy is a wife, mom and grandmother. As a self-proclaimed “health nut”, her story begins in a place that many of us know very well – persistent pain and trouble sleeping.

    While researching natural solutions, Joy learned of the benefits of CBD and began trying the top brands.

    What she found was distressing: only one of the seven biggest CBD oil brands gave her the relief she desired.

    After more research, the answer became obvious. Today’s CBD oil industry is a mess. There is minimal government oversight. No enforcement of false label claims and a huge variety of ineffective extraction and delivery methods.

    As Joy’s frustration grew, so did her passion for creating a product people could trust. She then put together her team to create the most pure, organic, and bioavailable THC-free full spectrum hemp oil on the market.
