Is it permitted to export CBD (Cannabidiol) products from the U.S.? The answer to that question is… that it depends on the specific product itself.
A trusted resource has informed CBDTesters team directly that their attempt to export CBD isolates from the US has been blocked at the border. According to that source, the situation is only limited to CBD (Cannabidiol) isolates, so exporting CBD Oil under the label of “Hemp Oil” might still work, at least for the time being.
This is not to say that all CBD exports from the U.S. will be affected by this, but it could mean that some items will be stopped at customs before they can be exported.
From what we have learned so far, while trying to export CBD isolates, some exporters have been denied. They have been asked to bring official approval from the DEA, in the form of an export license, for their product or products.
As the legal status of CBD shipments, interstate or exported, is now ‘questionable’, this demand might be hard to fulfill. Now it’s up to the DEA, together with the relevant legal authorities in the US to decide whether or not to stop at isolates, or to block all CBD product exports completely.
If you personally have been prevented from exporting CBD from the U.S., or you know how it can be exported legally, then please reach out, our readers would be eternally thankful.
In the meantime, we are monitoring this situation closely and will update this article as and when new information becomes available.
