There is no special licensing required for selling CBD at this time. That means that no special licensing is required for selling CBD to your current store, services, or offerings. It is important to keep in mind that no CBD product is FDA approved except for the pharmaceutical Epidiolex. That means that restaurants, bars, and cafes looking to offer CBD menu items can’t legally do so. Certain states, like New York, have gone as far as banning the addition of CBD to menu items. Many businesses in the restaurant industry do continue to serve CBD-infused items but need to recognize that they may get fined by the FDA. It is legal to sell finished CBD products that are pre-packaged in any establishment.
Topical products are different– salons and spas can offer CBD upgrades and services since these are not ingestible items. Salons and spas looking to add CBD services to their current product offering don’t have to worry about potential drug interactions or FDA regulations. Be aware that while there are no federal regulations on selling CBD services to a minor, certain states have their own laws. Make sure to check your local state laws prior to deciding if you’d like to provide CBD spa services to minors.
