Are CBD & Hemp Sales Considered High-Risk?

The CBD and Hemp spaces are almost universally considered to be a high-risk industry. When determining whether or not a business is classified as high-risk, financial institutions examine a variety of factors.

Even though most states allow for the sale of THC-free CBD products, the legal guidelines vary greatly. On its own, this inconsistency is enough for many banks to deem CBD and Hemp businesses as high-risk. Considering that the product category is relatively new, financial institutions are even more discouraged from backing businesses in the CBD space.

If you find a traditional financial institution that is willing to accept the risk, they will likely charge ridiculous fees. Worse yet, these institutions often place restrictions on the high-risk accounts they house that will hinder your ability to effectively do business.
