You might have heard several rumors swirling around the internet or other places about new laws concerning vapes and shipping. As with anything that comes from the rumor mill, or the internet for that matter, word of these new laws may have caused you some concern or confusion. After all, when Congress inserts itself into the conversation concerning vapes or any hemp-derived product for that matter, it can never be good.
Well, first things first — we’re here to assure you that everything is going to be just fine. And for those of you that love our vaping products, you have nothing to worry about. Beginning on April 6, all of our vape products will be shipped with USPS.
But what does that mean for you?
That means that you’ll receive all of your favorite vape products, from CBD to Delta-8, straight to your door with no problem, the same way you always have. Your vape products will arrive quickly and on time. And the whole process will be hassle-free. In other words, you’re still going to receive the same excellent service from Diamond CBD that you have come to expect.
Why all the changes, though? We know that when something is broken, you don’t go fixing it.
Well, unfortunately, we’re stuck at the whim of politicians and pundits who don’t understand the business that we’re in right now. Thanks to some changes in the law, we’re forced to update our shipping policies when it comes to our vaping products. Allow us to explain a little.
A New Law Changes Vape Shipping Policies
Believe it or not, a new law passed by Congress will prohibit the United States Postal Service from shipping vape products to residential homes beginning this summer. Does it sound ridiculous? That’s because it is.
“In late December, when Congress approved an appropriations bill to keep the government running, lawmakers included the text of a separate measure,” writes Marijuana Business Daily. “The “Preventing Online Sales of E-Cigarettes to Children Act” prohibits the USPS from shipping vaping products.”
The new law actually doesn’t mention hemp or cannabis businesses whatsoever, according to experts. Still, many of them are taking precautions just in case (because you know how the federal government can be when it comes to these things).
According to what we know, the new legislation takes effect in late March. Once it does, the postal service has 120 to enact rules and implement the law as they see fit. As it is right now, the new law has everyone running a bit scared. According to statements released by both UPS and FedEx, each organization will follow the path of the USPS and stop shipping vapes as well.
“Effective April 5, 2021, UPS will not transport vaping products to, from or within the United States due to the increased complexity to ship those products,” Matthew O’Connor, a UPS spokesman, said in a statement, according to Marijuana Business Daily.
A Law Made for Nicotine Products
The new law, which affects the shipping of all vaping products, was designed to curb youth vaping of nicotine products. What is happening right now is that Congress is interrupting a $44 million national marketplace. CBD and Delta-8 vape products are some of the most popular products on the market today.
In fact, many see this as just another attempt by those in power to demonize vaping. “[It’s] another attempt by the government to ‘demonize’ nicotine vaping,” Arnaud Dumas de Rauly, CEO and co-founder of The Blinc Group, told Marijuana Business Daily.
The best companies, like Diamond CBD, do things like age verification to avoid any problems. Most experts agree that this is the best way to handle any issues. Still, there are things that can be done to lobby Congress. Experts agree that since the USPS has a few months to go before their final rules are implemented, there’s plenty of time to lobby.
“The first thing (for cannabis business owners) to do is to become aware of the law and whether or not it will affect them. And if they’re a (vaporizer manufacturing) company or retailer of vaping products, this will affect them,” cannabis attorney Rod Kight said to Marijuana Business Daily.
Only the Best from Diamond CBD
Despite the change in the law, Diamond CBD is doing everything we can to ensure that you continue to receive the high-quality service from us that you are used to. Beginning on April 6, we will be shipping our vape products via USPS, working within the law to ensure all of your favorites make it to your house on time.
Whether you prefer CBD or Delta-8, Chill Plus or Liquid Gold, you’re still going to receive that top-quality service that you’ve come to know and love from us here at Diamond CBD. And we’re going to do everything we can to make sure that the world — and your Congressman — knows about all of the benefits of vaping.
So don’t worry. Go shopping for all of your favorite vaping products here at Diamond CBD and do it with confidence. Starting April 6, they’ll be arriving via the USPS, but they will be arriving, and that’s the important part.
And as always, happy vaping!
