Cannabidiol (CBD), a phytocannabinoid, is derived from the marijuana plant and is seen to have a number of benefits. Although the legality of its sale varies by jurisdiction, but in the United States, the cannabidiol drug Epidiolex was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2018 for treatment of two epilepsy disorders.

Cannabidiol is one of the 113 identified cannabinoids in cannabis plants, of which Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is also one. But unlike THC, Cannabidiol is not psychoactive (the sensation of getting “high”).


Why is CBD considered a High Risk Business?

Despite the fact that legislation has become favorable regarding any cannabis by-product, but many credit card processors still consider it as a high risk mainly because of its association with cannabis plant of which THC (a psychoactive drug) is also a product. Also, for a long time cannabis products were deemed as federally illegal. Because of these reasons, CBD products are labeled as “high risk” and banks refuse to run the risk of being associated with these CBD merchants and the payment gateway providers (partnered with these banks) don’t have the capability to service these high risk merchant accounts.


What are the benefits of CBD?

Studies have shown that it might help people with schizophrenia and other types of mental disorders by reducing psychotic symptoms. It has also shown anti-tumor effects. In animals, it has shown to prevent the spread of different types of cancer like: breast, prostate, brain, and even lung cancer. Recent research has shown that CBD has the ability to lower high blood pressure. But one of its most studied uses is in treating neurological disorders like epilepsy.

Despite all these benefits, the sale of CBD is questionable and it is considered to be a high risk business by most of the credit card processors.
