Ever since Shopify began allowing the sale of hemp-derived CBD and CBD related products a few months ago, we’ve seen an explosion of CBD stores on the US merchants in certain states are able to sell select hemp or hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) products on Shopify.
The Top 10 CBD Stores on Shopify
Forbes anticipates that by 2025 the CBD market in the US could be worth as much as $16 billion. And with Shopify making it easier than ever before to sell these products online, it’s no wonder that sellers, new and established, are opening online stores.
With all of these new stores opening, we thought we’d make a list of some of our favorites. So here, in no particular order, are 10 of the top CBD stores on Shopify at the moment.
The name Cannuka comes from the combination of cannabis and Manuka honey which are the two main ingredients in their products.
While their product offering centers mostly on skin care, what makes their products stand out is their branding and clean, modern looking website design.
Their products and co-founder have even been showcased on Shopify’s CBD landing page.
2) Mind CBD
Unlike Cannuka, Mind CBD has a much more extensive product range. They even offer CBD treats for cats and dogs.
Regardless of what CBD products you’re looking for, chances are you’ll be able to find it here. Assuming that it’s legal, of course.
The power of Briogeo’s Shopify CBD store is definitely in their branding.
By focusing exclusively on selling CBD infused hair care products, they’re able to target a lucrative audience and differentiate themselves from other CBD stores.
They’re also one of the few stores along with Cannuka to have their products included on Shopify’s CBD landing page.
4) Infusion CBD
Infusion CBD sells a range of their own CBD oils, balm, capsules, gummies and even vape oil.
What separates this particular CBD store from the others on this list is that it’s sells to the UK. Which highlights that selling CBD on Shopify isn’t just restricted to the US, but is possible in any jurisdiction that allows the sale of CBD products.
5) CBD Farmers Collective
This is a unique entry on this list in that CBD Farmers Collective isn’t a single seller. Rather the site allows farmers in the US to sign up and begin selling their CBD products.
This not only gives farmers an easy means to selling their product online, but also gives shoppers a wide range of choice.
6) LEEF Organics
All of LEEF’s products are 100% organic and non-GMO.
Their site is also well designed and contains high quality imagery of their products, letting them show off their equally high quality packaging.
If you’re going to open your own CBD store on Shopify, take a leaf out of their book and invest in professional grade photography.
7) RE Botanicals
One thing that this Shopify store takes advantage of that not many others on this list do are customer testimonials.
Doing so helps them establish trust in the minds of potential buyers, increasing the chance that they’ll convert into actual buyers. If you’re not sure how to get positive testimonials from customers, have a look at our guide to using email marketing to generate positive reviews.
8) Made By Hemp
Made By Hemp has been in the CBD game long before selling it became possible on Shopify.
In addition to selling their product, their site goes into detail about their production processes and where they source their hemp. Providing this information also helps to establish trust with potential buyers.
9) Josie Maran
Josie Maran isn’t your typical CBD store.
First of all, Josie Maran focuses primarily on makeup and skin care, but they also sell other related items such as hair care products and bath accessories.
Their CBD products represent a special product line, Skindope. This is the only other product to be included on Shopify’s CBD landing page along with the other two stores on this list.
Sabaidee’s mission is “to help one million people live a healthier and happier life by providing the highest quality hemp extracts that work.”
While we’re not sure how many customers they’ve helped so far, based on the over 1,000 customer reviews, it looks like they’re well on their way.
There you have it, 10 of the best CBD stores on Shopify at the moment.

Selling CBD on Shopify in the United States (US)
This page was printed on Sep 11, 2022. For the current version, visit https://help.shopify.com/en/manual/products/cbd-products.
If you’re a US merchant and you want to learn how to set up your Shopify store to sell hemp and hemp-derived products that contain cannabidiol (CBD), then use this page for information about some laws surrounding hemp and hemp-derived products that might apply to your business. Learn more about hemp and hemp-derived products.
Hemp is a type of plant in the cannabis sativa plant species, and produces a broad range of cannabinoids. Hemp doesn’t produce high levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), but is capable of producing high concentrations of CBD.
To sell hemp and hemp-derived products that contain CBD, you need to review and submit the Attestation for the Sale of Hemp and Hemp-Derived Products.
The Attestation for the Sale of Hemp and Hemp-Derived Products is only available to stores that are based in the United States. If the document doesn’t open in your Shopify admin, then verify that your store is a US-based store.
If you haven’t created a Shopify store yet, then go to www.shopify.com/sell/cbd to sign up for a trial store.
Laws in the United States surrounding hemp and hemp-derived products are changing, so you should consult with legal counsel before you sell these products on Shopify. Shopify can’t provide legal advice on what and where you can sell.
Before selling hemp or hemp-derived products on Shopify, review and monitor federal, state, and local laws. You should also monitor updates from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Set up your store to sell hemp or hemp-derived products
If you sell CBD products, then you can only set up email-only order and shipping notifications. SMS notifications are not supported for merchants who sell CBD products.
- Log in to your Shopify store. If you haven’t created a store yet, then go to www.shopify.com/sell/cbd to sign up for a trial store.
- Carefully review and submit the Attestation for the Sale of Hemp and Hemp-Derived Products. You need to be signed into your Shopify account as the store owner to complete this form. If you’re not the store owner, or your store address is not located in the United States, then this link will automatically redirect you to the Shopify admin. Before you sell any CBD products, make sure that you understand and submit the attestation form. After you have submitted the form, the attestation process is automatic – you don’t need to wait for a response from Shopify regarding the attestation form.
- Select and apply for a third-party payment gateway. Shopify Payments is not available for hemp or CBD products at this time. However, Shopify has partnered with third-party payment gateways that support the sale of certain hemp and/or hemp-derived CBD products. The requirements for approval may vary for each gateway. Review the requirements and apply directly to any of these gateways using the following Shopify-specific links:
- Set up email-only customer notifications for orders and shipping. You can only send notifications related to CBD products and shops by email. SMS messages aren’t supported. For steps to enable email-only customer notifications, refer to Disable your customer’s SMS notifications.
This list may not be exhaustive, and may change over time.
Hemp-derived CBD transactions are vetted more carefully by third-party payment gateways than other transactions, so the application and approval process might be more involved than usual. Third-party payment gateways take into account many factors in approving payments and rates for shops selling CBD products, including product type, whether the business was recently created, transaction history, volume, product mix, and others. Approvals are at the discretion of each third-party payment gateway, and Shopify can’t guarantee the approval of your shop.
Additionally, it is important that you know your responsibilities. Like all Shopify merchants, it’s your responsibility to follow federal, state, and local laws and the respective policies of Shopify, our app and partner ecosystem, and any third-party providers. If you have additional questions, then contact the third-party providers directly, or consult with an attorney.
Merchants using Shopify Plus can contact the Merchant Success team for guidance and dedicated support in completing the steps required to sell hemp or hemp-derived CBD products on Shopify.
Disable your customer’s SMS notifications
You can only send notifications related to CBD products and shops by email. SMS messages aren’t supported. For information about customer notifications, refer to Set up your customer’s notification options at checkout.
