Legal opinion for CBD products
Laws of payment
In the course of online payment optimization, it may be necessary to issue a legal opinion (e.g. for a specific CBD product) so that it may be distributed in the respective country. For German-speaking countries, we have our criminal defense lawyer Marek Schauer from Rechtsanwalt24.de, who, together with online payment expert Lars Funke, develops strategies to obtain the best payment providers and conditions for our customers.
Legal opinion for CBD products in Germany
Some payment providers like to play it safe when selecting their customers and get legal certification that the products that are to be paid for with their service can actually be traded legally.
However, these legal opinions only concern certain products or product groups, which can be roughly divided into three categories.
Installment payment and subscription function
In the case of higher-priced products, for example, payment by installments is a popular option for promptly fulfilling material wishes outside of one’s financial means.
Our online payment advisor will find the right provider, with the most popular payment methods and best conditions.
Category 1 – no legal opinion required (e.g. electronic devices)
If, for example, vaporizers, equipment for cultivation or other electronic devices are to be sold in the online store, a legal opinion is usually not necessary.
The reason is that the products in this area are only indirectly related to CBD products. Cultivation can also be, for example, tomatoes or broccoli.
Nevertheless, many payment service providers remain cautious and can only be convinced with the right arguments.
Category 2 – legal opinion may be necessary (e.g. CBD oils)
This category includes all products where, for example, CBD has been further processed in some form and you can pretty much track which ingredients have been used. This concerns CBD oil, lipstick, sweets, etc.
Here we have to look in detail, but we can certainly find a service provider who is willing to take over the payments for these products, without the need for a legal opinion beforehand.
Category 3 – Legal opinion required (e.g. CBD flowers or seeds).
In the case of products that are largely resold unprocessed, there is no way around a legal opinion.
This concerns e.g. CBD flowers, seeds or plant parts.
If you are unsure whether your CBD products need a legal opinion, just contact us and we will clarify your questions and also advise you on the right choice of payment providers.
