USPS wants to save you time and money on shipping hemp products
As reported by this post on cannabusiness.law, the USPS on March 20 announced acceptance criteria for mailing hemp and hemp products (refer to the post to see the announcement letter). Though the criteria are cumbersome, especially for retailers sending many packages per day, this at least signals that the USPS recognizes hemp and hemp products as lawfully mailable. Furthermore, the letter claims that the criteria will be modified (and likely loosened) once the 2018 Farm Bill has been fully implemented.
In addition, the USPS wants to make sure PNW hemp companies have access to the best mailing and shipping programs they have to offer and to that effect have tasked Patrick Fullmer, NW District Field Sales, to reach out to the hemp industry in our region. If you want to make sure your hemp company is getting the best shipping rates and using the best tools available, reach out to him at the below contact info:

One tip: If you’re an online retailer of hemp products, consider using Pirate Ship for your USPS shipping needs.
