CHICAGO — In recent months, CSP has been talking with retailers about their plans for products infused with cannabidiol (CBD). Those selling the items have shared the following tips.
1. Know your suppliers and products
One of the fundamental steps in a strong program is developing a thorough vetting process with suppliers so the retailer has a high degree of comfort with products coming into the store. As with any product that has the potential for misuse, retailers should be aware and prepared for any liability concerns over CBD that should arise.
5. Consider community reaction
If possible, assess the neighboring communities for any potential backlash from the sale of CBD products, because confusion still exists between CBD products and those with tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC (the psychoactive element in marijuana). Industrial hemp, the legal source for CBD products, must have a THC content of 0.3% or less.
