Webinar Focuses on Legalities and Payment Processing of CBD

It’s happening on Thursday, Aug. 8 at 1 p.m. EDT.




(PRESS RELEASE) On Thursday, Aug. 8 at 1 p.m. EDT, a live webinar will take place that addresses the legalities and payment processing of CBD. Despite the many health benefits CBD provides to its users, banks categorize it as a high-risk industry since it is derived from the hemp plant, even though it contains barely traceable amounts of THC (the psychoactive, pain-killing component of marijuana). Because the possession, sale and use of marijuana remains illegal by U.S. federal law, some acquiring banks are cautious of offering credit-card processing for CBD.

Regardless, the surge in CBD sales is set to surpass all other supplements, and with the recent passing of the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 (the “Farm Bill”), CBD sales are forecasted to grow exponentially. If you are a pet parent and want clarity about purchasing CBD, this is the webinar for you! If you are a pet professional manufacturing or distributing hemp products and want to be educated on the legalities and payment processing of CBD, this is the webinar for you!

Hosted by Nancy Hassel and Dana Humphrey, pet industry experts, educators and hosts of NYC Re-Tails and Sales Pet Expo. They had much success with their first CBD panel held in April at their seventh annual pet expo. Because of the positive feedback they received, they decided to hold their first CBD webinar in May that covered CBD 101: “What Pet Parents Need to Know!” The Aug. 8 webinar will feature two experts on the CBD legalities and payment-processing topic lending their expertise and time to educate you and answer your questions.

The two experts are Alex Buscher, founder and principal attorney at BuscherLaw and Steven Cron, executive vice president of Benchmark Payment Networks.

You must register ahead to attend and have access to the replay. If you can’t make the LIVE webinar, you will still have access to watch and learn as we are recording the webinar and you will have access to that webinar for two weeks. The cost for this webinar is $19.95 per person. To register go to:




NASC Media Spotlight

At first it was just an idea: Animal supplements needed the same quality control that human-grade supplements receive. But that was enough to start a movement and an organization —the National Animal Supplement Council — that would be dedicated to establishing a comprehensive path forward for the animal supplements industry. In this Media Spotlight interview, NASC’s president, Bill Bookout, talks to PETS+ interviewer Chloe DiVita about the industry today: Where it’s headed, what’s the latest focus and why it’s vital to gain the involvement of independent pet product retailers.
