Age Restrictions For Purchasing CBD Products

Age Restrictions For Purchasing CBD Products


When the 2018 Farm Bill was finalized in late December 2018, with Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell being instrumental in moving the bill forward, it essentially created a distinction between both Industrial Hemp and Marijuana. One of the things this bill was able to achieve was removing Industrial Hemp from the Controlled Substances Act, and was then handed to the Department of Agriculture. Decriminalizing the growth of the Hemp plant has opened doors for a variety of industry types, allowing for the use of its fibers to be used to build at a cheaper cost, to create clothing, construction materials, plastic composites, and much more. The most interesting industry type industrial hemp can now be used in is the Cannabidiol (CBD) market.

With this monumental bill being in full affect, Hemp products that contain less than 0.3% THC can now be on the market and is federally legal in the United States. The bill allows for broad hemp cultivation, with the ability to transfer hemp-derived products across state lines for commercial and other purposes. There are no restrictions on the sale, transport, or possession of hemp-derived products as long as the items/products are produced in a manner that is consistent with the law. Without getting into the more technical side of things, this doesn't necessarily mean that the "Farm Bill creates an open system where individuals or businesses can grow Hemp whenever and wherever they want." There are many restrictions in place to prevent that.

This now leads us to the part of age restrictions to purchase CBD. Although CBD products containing less than 0.3% THC are now federally legal in the United States, what's the word on age restrictions? While CBD is slowly but surely becoming available in health stores, food markets, online, and even in local CBD shops, such as PRYME CBD, there is no definitive upper or lower age restriction. What this ultimately means is that hemp-based CBD is accessible to all ages, and minors can purchase CBD products as well. However, the decision to sell CBD products to minors or to force an age restriction falls on the hands of the business themselves.

With that said, PRYME CBD chooses not to sell any of its products to minors. We feel that our youth aren't mature enough, nor should they be allowed to purchase CBD products. Therefore, we will politely ask for your identification when entering our establishment. We do not allow minors to enter our establishment, we will not sell to minors, and if you are a parent or guardian and a minor is with you, we may refuse service. You must be 19 years of age or older to enter and shop at PRYME CBD.

For those that do not agree with our standings, we hope that you will understand our position on the matter. Our youth find ways to purchase products and manipulate them. With Rehobeth claiming an epidemic due to minors using vapor products in its schools, it is ultimately up to us to protect both our youth and an industry that was created to treat a variety of ailments, much like the vapor products industry was created to reduce harm.

If you are age 19 or above, we encourage you to come shop at PRYME CBD and we hope our views on age restrictions will help further earn your business. We have kids of our own and we understand the vitality of protecting our kids and youth of the Wiregrass.
