What Platforms allow CBD– a #1 must read free download
One of the hottest trends for 2021 is CBD. It seems the stores are popping up everywhere. The question is what platforms allow CBD? I have received numerous requests on getting one built. One of the first questions I ask anyone who wants to build a website is what Platform do you want to use, or do you have a preference?
What comes as a complete shock to people is that not all platforms will allow certain products and CBD is no exception. So I have put together a booklet outlining the different platforms and their rules pertaining to CBD. Often times, it’s not so much the platform than it is the payment processor, Stripe is one such example.
With the health and wellness communities wholeheartedly embracing CBD and its benefits, and more and more studies being done alleging its efficacy, the only question remaining to be answered is what’s the best way to go about setting up your e-commerce store to catch that wave.
Having been recently legalized to sell CBD online, there’s currently something of a rush to get the product on the shelves and available, so to speak, but before you get your site up and running, you’ve got to think about the best way to do it.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, or as it’s more commonly known, CBD, has been seeing a huge surge in popularity over the last few months. With its many purported medical benefits as well as recent legalization, it’s no wonder people are starting to take an interest.
While initially limited to niche healthcare, generally for the seriously ill, more and more people are looking to improve their wellness with CBD. One of the biggest questions for most people is; isn’t it the same thing as cannabis?
In short, kind of, but not really. CBD is one of the many chemical elements found within cannabis. CBD is not psychoactive and is all about the health benefits.
The legality of CBD was caught in limbo for several years, but with increasing amounts of evidence and supporters as to its medical benefits, combined with the lack of any psychoactive effects, many countries are legalizing it, and it’s now legal to open an e-commerce store selling CBD.
Generally taken as a tincture, by dropping under the tongue or adding to smoothies, or even applied topically in creams, CBD oil is being used to treat a huge variety of things, from acne to depression.
With a growing amount of anecdotal evidence as well as some studies done on animals, some clear benefits of CBD have been found. From helping to reduce inflammation to easing anxiety and depression, as well as some potential benefits when it comes to treating epilepsy, many people are using CBD to treat and alleviate a huge range of conditions.
As a result, the market for CBD has increased massively. Projected to hit a total value in the United States of $22 billion in the next three years, the farming industry creating the necessary plants is also set to keep growing massively. This has meant that alongside the legalization for selling online, the demand has only kept developing.
Which begs the question, when it comes to opening up your own online CBD e-commerce store, which e-commerce platform should you be using?
