We Cannot Accept PayPal Payments Anymore

CBD Gold Oils, was contacted by PayPal on April 23, 2019 because we had apparently violated their "acceptable use policy" by offering Hemp and CBD products.

Ignoring the fact that all our products are manufactured and sold in the UK and Europe, where all CBD Products are legal, this is more surprising because industrial hemp is legal to sell and distribute also in United States in all 50 states. 

Industrial hemp is different than usual cannabis strains, in that it contains less than 0.3% delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the psychoactive component of marijuana.

There are many "unregulated" CBD products on the market that are not classified as legal food items and don't provide testing results. 

The CBD and hemp oil we are proud to carry in the CBD Gold Oils Store have been thoroughly tested and their analysis shows very small amounts of THC in the product. This means you would get the health benefits of hemp without the "high."

In our products we use full spectrum natural Co2 Extracted CBD from hemp plants, therefore removing 100% the THC traces is impossible

We DO NOT USE CBD isolate, as other manufacturers are, as that removes the full array of health benefits provided by the entourage effect  of full spectrum cannabinoids found in the whole hemp plant.

CBD Isolate gives only just a small fraction of the benefits we provide by using a 100% whole hemp natural cannabinoids extraction method

__________

Cannabidiol (CBD) is believed to be the major modulatory component of cannabis, mitigating some of the negative, psychosis-like effects of THC, and is included in some medicinal formulations alongside THC.[1][2] CBD co-administration also reduces the negative effects of THC on memory.[2] Myrcene, which is recognized as a sedative component in hops, may be responsible for the sedative effects ("couch lock") of certain cannabis strains (sedative effects are commonly ascribed to the indica cannabis type). Linalool may also contribute to the entourage effect, modulating the glutamate and GABA neurotransmitter systems to produce sedative and anxiolytic effects.[3]

The idea of the entourage effect has taken root in the cannabis industry and among consumers, about 20 years ago.

The phrase entourage effect was introduced in 1998 by S. Ben-Shabat,[4] and by Raphael Mechoulam,[5] to represent a novel endogenous cannabinoid molecular regulation route. The phrase refers to the compounds present in cannabis supposedly working in concert to create “the sum of all the parts that leads to the magic or power of cannabis”, according to Chris Emerson.[1] Other cannabinoids', terpenoids', and flavonoids' contribution to clinical cannabis effects has been espoused as an “entourage effect”.

The entourage effect  is considered a cannabinoid system modulator and is achieved in pain management through increasing receptors affinity to enhance endogenous anandamide activity and/or reducing enzymatic anandamide degradation.

In order to continue offering our popular and high quality Hemp and CBD oils, CBD balms and CBD Vapes, we have decided to remove PayPal as a payment option in our store. We wish PayPal did not take this stance against a proven safe and effective food item, but we have no choice but to discontinue offering PayPal as a payment solution. 

We are please to accept Visa, MasterCard, and some other debit cards. If you require an alternative payment solution, please contact us and we would be happy to work with you.

Best regards,

CBD GOLD OILS team
