Listing Guidelines for Cannabidiol (CBD) and Hemp Products

The content below is for guidance only. Amazon reserves the right to remove any listing it considers to be inappropriate for sale for any reason.

All listings and products must comply with all laws and regulations.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of a range of cannabinoids found in Cannabis plants. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is another common cannabinoid and is the main psychoactive constituent of Cannabis. Cannabis is a flowering plant that consists of three primary species: Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica and Cannabis ruderalis.

The term “hemp” is often used to refer to varieties of Cannabis that generally contain lower concentrations of THC and higher concentrations of CBD, and are grown for industrial use (e.g. for clothing, rope etc.).

The listing and sale of ingestible hemp products, including lozenges, e-liquids, sprays and oils that contain CBD or other cannabinoids are prohibited on Amazon.co.uk, except for sellers participating in a limited, invite-only pilot. This pilot only applies to products listed on Amazon.co.uk and is not available on other Amazon websites. The pilot is not accepting additional sellers currently.

The only ingestible hemp products that are permitted for sale on Amazon.co.uk are those products that contain cold-pressed hemp seed oil from the Cannabis sativa plant, and that do not contain CBD, THC or other cannabinoids.

All hemp products that do not contain CBD, THC or other cannabinoids must be permitted by Amazon policy, have the ingredients attribute populated correctly and be described appropriately.

To continue listing these products, you must meet all of the requirements outlined below and on the Drugs, Drug Paraphernalia and Dietary Supplements Seller Policy page.

  • Products must clearly state in the Ingredients field that they contain only hemp seed oil
  • Hemp gummies and other similar hemp products, including those that contain only hemp seed oil, are prohibited by Amazon policy
  • Products may not include prohibited health or medicinal claims. See the Prohibited Product Claims page for further information.
  • Products will also be removed if there is any indication on the listing that the product contains any extract of the hemp plant other than the seeds. This includes misleading marketing claims such as:
    • Full or Broad Spectrum claims
    • % strength claims (where it is not clear what ingredient the % refers to)
    • Claims relating to CO2 and other extraction methods of cannabinoids
    • References to CB1 and CB2 receptors

All hemp products that do not meet the requirements listed above and on the Drugs, Drug Paraphernalia and Dietary Supplements Seller Policy page will be removed.
