CBD Sellers And Payment Gateways
CBD (cannabidiol) products are derived from the marijuana plant but do not have the psychoactive effects of marijuana products that contains THC. They are mainly used for their health benefits and are produced by a wide range of sellers in the US. While most states allow products containing CBD to be sold there is still some uncertainty about their legality at the federal level and this means that payment processors are either unwilling to process, or attach a higher risk factor to, payments made for CBD products.
This means that a CBD payment gateway can be difficult to find and even where a processor accepts the payments they regard them as high risk payments. This is because they could be prone to a high number of chargebacks or card fraud. However there are gateways that accept these types of payments (they also process payments for other high risk industries such as in the adult products and online gaming areas).
