Buy CBD Products and get the best deals at the lowest prices on eBay! Great Savings & Free Delivery / Collection on many items eBayUK quietly cracked the CBD door open last month adding gated sub-categories under Health & Beauty for approved sellers. British Cannabis has broken new ground by being one of the first permitted sellers of CBD food supplements and CBD cosmetics on the leading e-commerce platform, eBay.
CBD has soared in popularity and has been incorporated into various industries, including wellness, cosmetics, medicine, and even the food sector, thanks to its multiple health properties and benefits.
An effective remedy for many common health ailments such as anxiety, sleeping problems and chronic pain, it is a great and effective option for those looking for relief and relaxation without using traditional pharmaceutical medicine.
CBD products are now readily available for purchase without a prescription, and there are many ways that CBD can be used. From topical products such as creams to capsules, oils, tinctures, CBD vape pens, CBD vape juice, and edibles, find your preferred CBD product right here on eBay!
Made by mixing extracted and diluted CBD with a carrier oil such as coconut, hemp seed, and avocado oil, CBD oil is an effective remedy for many common health issues such as chronic pain and is a great option for those seeking natural alternatives. It has been used for years and continues to gain momentum in the wellness industry thanks to ever-increasing studies that confirm its many surprising health benefits. eBay sells a wide range of high-quality CBD oil for anxiety to help your body achieve balance in many different flavours and strengths. To get the most out of your CBD oil, place a few drops under your tongue and leave for a few minutes to ensure maximum absorption before swallowing.
With so many different types of CBD products out there, choosing the right one for you can be tricky. Similar to all of your other supplements, CBD capsules are made much in the same way as CBD oils but are simply divided into manageable, controlled doses. Easy to take and hassle-free, they are less messy, more discreet, and have no flavour or texture. They are typically contained in gel capsules, and the bottle will always specify the exact amount you should take.
Topical CBD products are also incredibly popular, with many CBD creams helping to alleviate sore muscles, body aches and pains. They absorb into the skin immediately and are anti-inflammatory, providing targeted soothing support from daily activities – perfect for those who lead active lifestyles! CBD creams are also incredibly moisturising, helping to hydrate dry skin while protecting the skin from oxidative stress.
eBay Launches CBD Cannabidiol Pilot Program In UK
CBD and cannabis products have long existed in a grey area on the eBay marketplace but as regulations ease, so does the path for legitimate businesses to sell these products online.
It didn’t make many waves here in the US, but eBayUK quietly cracked the CBD door open last month with the addition of gated sub-categories under Health & Beauty specifically for CBD products.
CBD products from a raft of sellers are now set to be sold on Ebay UK ‘permanently’, marking a dramatic shift in sentiments from one of the world’s largest retailers and an ‘important moment for the industry’. Ebay, which has historically enforced a strict ban on the sale of CBD products on its pla…
eBay told BusinessCann that while this is a pilot program, they intend for compliant CBD products to be available permanently on the platform and that it has ‘approved 20 CBD brands for launch across 15 individual Ebay stores’, including Love Hemp, Yooma Wellness, British Cannabis and Blossom.
“The regulatory framework around CBD products has evolved, enabling businesses to sell CBD food and cosmetic products in compliance with applicable regulations.”
“Ebay has therefore decided to open up this category so that approved sellers, in compliance with applicable regulations, can offer CBD products that are already available for purchase through both online and high street retailers.”
While vendors are able to apply to become approved CBD sellers, a process it says can take ‘several weeks’, Ebay says all products must be in the process of being validated by the FSA.
“Sellers comply with the UK regulations applicable to the sale of CBD food products and follow the authorization process set up by the FSA before placing the product in the market. If a validated application is not authorised by the FSA, the seller will remove the product as per the FSA guidelines.”
How do CBD sales on eBayUK work?
Sellers who wish to sell CBD products must fill out an application and once approved, those products must be listed in special CBD sub-categories.
The eBayUK policy pages have been updated as well.
CBD products that comply with all applicable legal requirements may only be sold by permitted sellers only. See the Food policy regarding CBD food products and the Cosmetics policy regarding CBD cosmetic products that are permitted for sale on eBay.
Activity that doesn’t follow eBay policy could result in a range of actions including for example: administratively ending or cancelling listings, hiding or demoting all listings from search results, lowering seller rating, buying or selling restrictions, and account suspension. All fees paid or payable in relation to listings or accounts on which we take any action will not be refunded or otherwise credited to your account.
Just from a quick search, it does appear eBay is doing a decent job of enforcing this new policy – all of the CBD products I checked were listed only in the CBD specific categories.
What does this mean for eBay.com and other countries?
CBD policy on the US site in particular has long been a point of confusion and frustration for sellers. Back in 2018, eBay disclosed shoppers purchased 39,000 cannabidiol (CBD) oils and supplements and conducted 284,000 related searches. However, at the same time, many sellers complained of having their accounts shut down for selling CBD products.
I have read through the prohibited items list but can’t find mention of it. They removed my item before but I saw on Yahoo how ebay was in an article commenting about CBD sales yet I cant sell it.
I have been selling products on Ebay’s platform for 18 years with a 100% positive feedback rating through my personal account. I recently read an article where one of Ebay’s executives stated that searches and sales of CBD oil products have greatly increased throughout 2018. Link to Yahoo article…
Back in 2019, an eBay rep on Twitter stated CBD products had been prohibited globally due to various regulations and difficulty of enforcement – while that is obviously changing for the UK, I wouldn’t expect it to change for US or other locations any time soon.
The sale of CBD products is highly regulated in many countries. While they may be legal to buy and sell in some countries, they are regulated by the FDA and enforced by some law enforcement agencies. For this reason, we have decided to prohibit the items globally. Mary

Also in 2019, when asked for clarification on eBay’s policies regarding CBD, community staff member Trinton said:
At this time, we do not allow for the sale of pure CBD oil, consumable products containing CBD, or any product containing CBD that advertises any sort of legal high or drug effect. Hemp products such as paper, roper, clothing, and cosmetics are generally acceptable. Topical creams that include CBD oil as one of the ingredients and hemp oil/fiber are allowed as long as the previous guidelines are followed.
In summary, some products that contain CBD are allowed with certain restrictions. Pure CBD oil or products claiming a drug-like effect are not allowed.

For now, the UK site is the only eBay market where it is explicitly allowed for approved sellers – sellers in other countries should be warned that just because they may see other sellers doing it, doesn’t mean it’s not a violation or couldn’t be cause for having their accounts shut down.

British Cannabis CBD products to list on eBay
British Cannabis is one of the first sellers to have its products permitted for sale on the ecommerce platform.
February 22, 2022
British Cannabis has broken new ground by being one of the first permitted sellers of CBD food supplements and CBD cosmetics on the leading e-commerce platform, eBay.
The company’s new eBay store will feature its range of over 25 CBD products – many of which have won industry awards.
The products will include CBD capsules and clinically tested cosmetics from the CBD by BRITISH CANNABIS™ range. Also available will be its range of affordable, flavoured CBD oils from ACCESS CBD™.
The eBay programme is set up with thorough policies on product compliance, safety and accuracy.
British Cannabis managing director, David Ralson, commented: “It was a privilege to be invited to become one of the very first CBD manufacturers permitted as an eBay UK seller. We have been impressed with the collaborative approach from eBay and their agency partners, as they ensure that only THC-free products with quality, authenticity and regulatory compliance enter the platform. It was our pleasure to be included in the initial discussions in 2021 that helped contribute to them navigating this exciting category safely.
“I think eBay’s excellent approach to this CBD category launch will set them apart from other e-commerce sites. We had been disappointed by the contrasting situation with Amazon UK. Whilst leaving many compliant sellers of CBD products out in the cold with their invitation-only CBD trial and proving difficult for manufacturers to contact and negotiate with, Amazon UK have still allowed uncompliant CBD products to appear on their platform, including products with test results that show quantifiable amounts of illegal cannabinoids such as CBN.
“We hope that consumers shop for CBD products, secure in knowing that eBay is a reputable marketplace that can offer better assurances on product compliance than many other UK retailers selling today, who have been seen in past years selling brands with inaccurate CBD levels and illegal THC levels. We believe that eBay can set a new standard as one of the UK’s safest places to buy CBD products.
“All food supplement products by British Cannabis are set to be included on the Food Standards Agency public list of products that have successfully submitted Novel Foods applications. They are also rigorously tested for product accuracy, purity and THC-free status. This will give consumers peace of mind that eBay is one of the most compliant platforms to buy CBD wellness products.”
Consumers in England and Wales will be able to order CBD via eBay for the first time, however, the programme is unable to sell CBD products to consumers in Scotland and Northern Ireland at this time.
Marketing director, Steve Batchelor, added: “There could hardly be a better time for eBay to start selling CBD than now, with all products debuting on the platform due to be successfully through to the next stage of the FSA Novel Foods process and the great things happening on our own brands this Spring.
“From the super-premium new look and feel of our revamped flagship brand, CBD by BRITISH CANNABIS™, to the launch of our new national TV campaign and the roll out of our 500mg CBD Dermal Patch innovation, consumers have a range of great choices, available with fast delivery and assured authenticity, directly from our UK operations.”
