22nd February 2022
British Cannabis is one of the UK’s first permitted sellers of CBD food supplements and cosmetics on the e-commerce giant, eBay.
From today (Tuesday 22 February) CBD products powered by BRITISH CANNABIS™ are available to buy in England and Wales on eBay.
BRITISH CANNABIS™ (trading as CBD Health Foods Ltd) has broken new ground by being one of the first permitted sellers of CBD food supplements and CBD cosmetics on leading business-to-consumer e-commerce platform, eBay, the second largest global online marketplace.
The new bespoke online store will carry a range of over 25 CBD products, including super-premium, 100 per cent cannabis CBD oils, CBD capsules and clinically tested cosmetics from the CBD by BRITISH CANNABIS™ range.
Also available will be the ground-breaking range of affordable, cut-price, flavoured CBD oils from ACCESS CBD™.
Most of these products have won pharmacy and CBD industry awards in recent years. (This includes the highly commended P3 Pharmacy Magazine 2021 Most Valuable Product Award for our 1000mg CBD Cannabis Oils, the Independent Community Pharmacist 2022 CBD Product of The Year and Your Healthy Living magazine’s 2022 Silver Award for Best CBD Products (for CBD by BRITISH CANNABIS™ 500mg Dermal Patches).
As a permitted seller on the eBay UK platform, in a programme set up with thorough policies on product compliance, safety and accuracy, BRITISH CANNABIS™ is the only authorised seller on eBay of its brands.
All of the food supplement products by BRITISH CANNABIS™ are set to be included on the Food Standards Agency’s public list of products that have successfully submitted Novel Foods applications – a strict pre-requisite for the products selected for the CBD category’s eBay launch.
They are also rigorously tested for accuracy, purity, and THC-free status for consumer peace of mind.
Established in 2015, BRITISH CANNABIS™ is the largest independently owned producer, manufacturer, and distributor of legal cannabis-derived products in the UK.
With a focus on innovation, quality, accuracy, and compliance that has backed products from this UK cannabis industry original for over six years, these products are now available on the widely used eBay e-commerce platform.
BRITISH CANNABIS™ managing director, David Ralson, commented: “It was a privilege to be invited to become one of the very first CBD manufacturers permitted as an eBay UK seller.
“We have been impressed with the collaborative approach from eBay and their agency partners, as they ensure that only THC-free products with quality, authenticity and regulatory compliance enter the platform. It was our pleasure to be included in the initial discussions in 2021 that helped contribute to them navigating this exciting category safely.
“I think eBay’s excellent approach to this CBD category launch will set them apart from other e-commerce sites. We had been disappointed by the contrasting situation with Amazon UK. Whilst leaving many compliant sellers of CBD products out in the cold with their invitation-only CBD trial and proving difficult for manufacturers to contact and negotiate with, Amazon UK have still allowed noncompliant CBD products to appear on their platform, including products with t est results that show quantifiable amounts of illegal cannabinoids such as CBN.”
He added: “We hope that con sumers shop for CBD products, secure in knowing that eBay is a reputable marketplace that can offer better assurances on product compliance than many other UK retailers selling today, who have been seen in past years selling brands with inaccurate CBD levels and illegal THC levels. We believe that eBay can set a new standard as one of the UK’s safest places to buy CBD products.”
BRITISH CANNABIS™ marketing director, Steve Batchelor, said: “There could hardly be a better time for eBay to start selling CBD than now, with all products debuting on the platform due to be successfully through to the next stage of the FSA Novel Foods process and the great things happening on our own brands this spring.
“From the super-premium new look and feel of our revamped flagship brand, CBD by BRITISH CANNABIS™, to the launch of our new national TV campaign and the roll out of our 500mg CBD Dermal Patch innovation, consumers have a range of great choices, available with fast delivery and assured authenticity, directly from our UK operations.”
Shoppers in England and Wales will be able to order CBD via eBay for the first time, however, the programme is unable to sell CBD products to consumers in Scotland and Northern Ireland at this time.
eBay start selling CBD (Cannabidiol)
eBay are the first mainstream UK marketplace to start selling CBD (Cannabidiol) with a new category opened up at Health & Beauty – Natural & Alternative Remedies – CBD Products.
Previously, the sale of CBD products on eBay was banned globally so this is a sea change by the UK marketplace and one we can already see that eBay are highly regulating. It’s effectively a gated category that you will need to be approved to sell in, so just because you see approved sellers offering CBD products on eBay UK don’t think that it’s ok for you to do likewise – you’ll probably have your account sanctioned and potentially selling privileges suspended or removed.
CBD products that comply with all applicable legal requirements may only be sold by permitted sellers only. See the Food policy regarding CBD food products and the Cosmetics policy regarding CBD cosmetic products that are permitted for sale on eBay.
Activity that doesn’t follow eBay policy could result in a range of actions including for example: administratively ending or cancelling listings, hiding or demoting all listings from search results, lowering seller rating, buying or selling restrictions, and account suspension. All fees paid or payable in relation to listings or accounts on which we take any action will not be refunded or otherwise credited to your account.
– eBay updated Illegal drugs and drug paraphernalia policy
There is an obvious demand for CBD products and it’s likely that eBay have been very cautious in launching the category. Approved sellers will have been closely vetted to ensure that not only are they reputable but that the products they supply are approved for use in the UK. This is likely to have included ensuring products offered contain pure CBD oil with none of the nasties that are illegal however pleasant their effects might seem.
If you are a reputable CBD supplier, are a registered business seller on eBay, and want to jump on board and sell your products on eBay UK, don’t go ahead and list before you’ve applied and been approved. The application form for selling in this or any other restricted categories is here.
