Amazon: Largest CBD Retailer or Just One Big Fraud?

Amazon: Largest CBD Retailer or Just One Big Fraud?

Amazon has been a big retailer of CBD as early as 2014, maybe still today with over 9,000 products. Even in Australia I bought CBD from Denver via Amazon.com.au. Yes, their Terms Of Service claims you can’t, but that’s more of a litigation/regulatory CYA.

E.U. CBD: Crisis = Opportunity

Of all the states, Hawaii has the most difficulty with hemp and the laws of botany, being at 20° latitude north. Cannabis at that latitude increases THC and doesn’t flower when you want it to, compared to the north.
