PayPal is governed by United Status laws, which classes hemp products as drugs. Even though, we all know that our product here at CBD Life UK are THC free (0.2% or less) and derived from industrial hemp, we still can’t use PayPal as payment method.
For bank transfers just simply give us a message and we’ll provide you with the details.
We have lowered the price of our CBD isolate!
In the UK, CBD products are classed as food supplements so they’re completely legal to buy and sell. They are also legal to buy via PayPal England. However, PayPal itself is ruled by United States laws and restrictions.

For many people, PayPal is their preferred payment method of choice when it comes to online transactions. For most purchases, PayPal works perfectly fine! Unfortunately, not for CBD!

Hemp is a type of plant in the cannabis sativa plant species, and produces a broad range of cannabinoids. Hemp doesn’t produce high levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), but is capable of producing high concentrations of CBD.
The Attestation for the Sale of Hemp and Hemp-Derived Products is only available to stores that are based in the United States. If the document doesn’t open in your Shopify admin, then verify that your store is a US-based store.

I run a vape shop directory and we have had a listing from a vape shop in the United States that also sells CBD products. A Month later, PayPal has written to use to say that our account has been restricted and have asked us to remove PayPal as a payment method from our vape shop directory. We do not sell CBD products such as CBD oil. We only provide marketing services to CBD companies. I have checked out Holland & Barrett – the UK’s Leading Health Retailer and if you take a close look, you will see that they sell a fairly extensive range of CBD products, specifically CBD oil and they also happen to accept PayPal as a payment method. It appears that PayPal is applying double standards to different companies. As a result of this restriction, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related website. This has restricted my payment options and now, I am heavily reliant on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have consulted a solicitor from a Magic Circle law firm in London and they said that what PayPal is doing is entirely illegal and discriminatory as it should be applying a uniform standard to all companies. I am yet to consult another lawyer from a US law firm in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. In the meantime, I would be highly appreciative if anyone here could provide me with alternative payment processors/merchants that work with CBD companies.
