MERCED (CBSLA.com) — A group of self-proclaimed sisters in California’s Central Valley involved in making products that contain CBD, a compound found in marijuana plants, are facing a setback after online sales of their products on one site were halted.
As Christine Meeusen explains, the ability of the Sisters of the Valley to sell CBD-infused products on Etsy.com, a portal for homemade and handmade goods, was suspended Thursday.
Since July, she said they had been running their business on the site, selling up $600 in goods a day.
Meeusen, known as Sister Kate, says three of their products were at issue, two of which don’t contain cannabis.
Yet, she says, the site objected to the product descriptions over allegations that they made healing claims.
The third product she says was at issue was a topical CBD multipurpose salve.
