Who Should Have CBD Product Liability Insurance?

Any company or person in charge of the design, manufacture, sale, or distribution of a component or end-user product should have insurance. This includes those who manufacture their own product, even if it is subcontracted to another operation. Even if the operation is in another country. You are still liable if your operation does not technically produce the product but directly imports it, designs it, or puts your name on it. Keep in mind that even if your operation is not technically manufacturing the product, you are liable if you directly import it. If you designed the product, you are liable; and if your name is on the product, you are liable.

What is the average cost of CBD, Hemp, or Cannabinoid Product insurance?

Although we are typically asked this question, there is typically no “out of the box” price for the cost of insurance for a CBD products. So, terms like typical, average, customary, standard, normal do not have any bearing. However, premium costs start about $2,000 per year for topical CBD products; and even under $2,500 a year for ingestible CBD products.

So… What Does CBD Product Liability Insurance Cost?

Cannabinoid product liability insurance costs are similar to other liability insurance products. Premiums are based on the specific type of product you manufacture, retail, or market. Some products pose very little potential to cause harm or damage and therefore have lower premiums. Others have a higher propensity to be risky and therefore carry higher premiums. An entry-level policy for a CBD product business can be as low as a few thousand dollars per year.
