Hi! I want to...

Hi! I want to start a hemp based CBD oil business. Hemp is very different than marijuana and has none of the crazy restriction that comes with it. I just want to know if I need a special license to sell hemp products, or will a standard business license suffice?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help - are you going to sell any products that have TCH in them or any products that can be seen as drug paraphernalia?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
There is no THC in the products, only CDB derived from hemp, and no drug paraphernalia.

Great - thank you for your response - to answer your question there is no special license that you would need to sell hemp related products.
