What Should Your CBD Labels Say?Cannabidiol (also commonly referred to as CBD) is used for a wide range of treatments and remedies. Some people use it to address anxiety issues that they’re experiencing, while others use it to relieve insomnia or stress. Because of that, these products have become wildly popular over the last few years. But if you’re selling some of your own, there are a few key things about CBD labels that you should be aware of before moving forward.
Breaking Down CBD LabelsGenerally speaking, you have just as much freedom with your CBD labels as you would with any other type of product packaging… at least as far as the design is concerned. Your label is still one of the first things about your product that a customer will actually see, so it’s always essential to design one that captures their attention in a way they won’t be able to look away from. Having said that, there are a few requirements that you’ll also have to meet by the nature of the unique product that you’re selling. If you’re going to be selling CBD-infused products for health and beauty-related purposes, for example, the Food and Drug Administration requires the following:
- The information on your label – including any claims that you make – cannot be “false” or “misleading” in any way. In other words, your product needs to actually do whatever you say it can.
- You also need to provide information that not only includes a statement of the number of contents but also your name and place of business, material facts, ingredients, any applicable warning or caution statements and more.
- That information must be properly displayed on the label in a location where people can easily find it. To put it another way, you cannot attempt to hide something like a caution statement in the fine print.
- Your label must not be in violation of the Poison Prevention Packaging Act of 1970.
