By the end of 2019, there were 305 million active PayPal accounts worldwide. But, though it is an incredibly popular money transfer platform, you will notice that our online CBD store doesn’t give the option to pay via Paypal and you may be wondering why.
To put it briefly, PayPal, due to American law, classes all CBD cannabidiol products as a narcotic. This means that the platform does not accept the transactions of any hemp-derived CBD products. The stance that PayPal has taken is very similar to the stance that it has with any transactions that include cannabis plants.
Hempura CBD products, despite PayPal’s position on CBD, are completely legal in the UK, as long as they contain undetectable levels of THC as per EU law. It is only products with detectable THC levels, usually above 0.01%, that are set apart as containing controlled substances under UK law.
We have formed an excellent partnership with a world-leading payment provider that does accept CBD transactions. Though we are unable to accept any PayPal payments, you don’t need to worry about accessing the best CBD has to offer and making secure payments via our store.
Our payment platform is easy to use and is fully certified by the PCI Security Standards Council. The platform is already processing upwards of 2 million different transactions every single month, with complete freedom on the platform for the use of debit and credit cards. The platform is fully secure and encrypted, so just like with PayPal, your information is safe.
As legislation surrounding Hemp and CBD products continues to change and develop (both in the UK and globally), we will monitor the payment platform options available to ensure that we always have the safest and most convenient payment processing systems in place.
