Insurable CBD Products

CBD Oil

The easiest way to consume CBD is through sublingual application. CBD can be sold in its pure oil form and are labeled as “tinctures” that are consumed with a dropper under or above the tongue.

CBD tinctures must be labeled properly with the percentage of CBD clearly visible. Improperly labeling could pose a potential insurance risk.

CBD Capsules & Supplements

One way more people are supplementing their diets is with CBD capsules or supplements. These products are often either clear capsules solely filled with CBD or a combination of vitamins and minerals infused with CBD.

CBD Edibles

Chocolate, hard candy, gummies, sports drinks, waters, and flavored drinks—there are many tasty ways to enjoy consuming CBD and if you’re in the supply chain of anything edible, you’ll need insurance to protect against risk.

If your edible products aren’t labeled properly with information such as being produced in a facility that also uses eggs, soy, dairy, or nuts, and someone consumes them and then has an allergic reaction, you could be on the hook for legal fees and their personal medical expenses.

Bath and Body Products

We’re talking lotions, salves, balms, bath bombs, body oils, infused-perfumes, facial products, hair masks, and nail products. CBD bath and body products have been used to aid in inflammation, chronic pain, acne, psoriasis, anti-aging, and much more. These products can be insured with Insurance Canopy, providing you with the peace of mind you need to keep creating or selling such products.

If someone were to use a product such as these and experienced an adverse skin reaction, you could potentially be sued.

Vapes

Just like with regular psychoactive cannabis, smoking and vaping CBD is also an option in aiding with a variety of health issues. If you’re in the manufacturing or distribution of vaporizable CBD oil cartridges, then your product can also be insured with Insurance Canopy.

Pet products

Some people will give their pets CBD for the same reasons they choose to consume it: to aid with anxiety and stress relief. CBD for pets is a fast-growing part of the industry so if you need a CBD pet product insured, Insurance Canopy can likely help out.
