Success Call: Product Liability Insurance for Topical Hemp CBD Products!

The Indie Business Network now offers, through Veracity Insurance Services, IBN members product liability insurance for topical, full-spectrum products containing hemp CBD. This new offering enhances our robust yet affordable non-hemp CBD product product liability insurance program. Both programs are described here. We are hosting a member Success Call today to share more details and to answer your questions.

For over a decade, IBN members have purchased insurance through our program, making it possible for them to sell their products with increased confidence online, and also to spas and retail stores, and at craft fairs, trade shows, and pop-up shops.

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is a naturally occurring derivative of hemp, a form of cannabis with lower tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) levels than marijuana.

Late last year, Congress passed what has become known as the Farm Bill, which legalizes the production of hemp. With the passage of the Farm bill, hemp and hemp derivatives, such as CBD, are no longer classified as prohibited substances under the Controlled Substances Act.

The Farm Bill has removed CBD, at levels 0.3% or less, from substances that are regulated by the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Now that CBD can be legally incorporated into consumer products, the Indie Business Network is pleased to announce the offering of product liability insurance coverage to our members who make products containing hemp CBD.

Join us for today's Success Call to get all of the juicy details.
