Information to Issues with the US Postal Service Dispatching Hemp-Derived CBD


Fortunately, the seizure of legal CBD packages will soon change.

Earlier this month (March 4), the USPS tacitly issued a notice regarding the shipping of CBD from hemp.

The rules for shipping CBD products by post were specified this month. This will certainly help CBD manufacturers, companies and consumers to breathe easier when shipping cannabidiol products.

The current reference states that it is legal to ship CBD from hemp by mail through the USPS in accordance with the provisions of the seemingly ancient farm Bill of 2014.
