By 2025, the U.S. CBD market is expected to become a $16.8 billion industry. If the FDA approves CBD as a legal additive, the market is projected to hit $19.5 billion by then. It’s safe to say, CBD is becoming an increasingly lucrative market.
With this seemingly limitless potential, many sellers are expanding into selling CBD online. However, navigating the rules and regulations around CBD shipping and eCommerce can be extremely confusing and makes it difficult to remain compliant.
Having this in mind, choosing a 3PL partner like OTW Shipping who knows how to ship CBD is incredibly important. Not only should your 3PL know the laws on shipping CBD, but they should also provide personalized support and optimized eCommerce fulfillment services for CBD.
"Our advantage thankfully is because it is such a personal project in a sense, I am happy to devote 100% more effort to really make sure we are lining ourselves up to stand above in terms of overall polish [...] so much thought was put into this and [QIWI] are pricing it accordingly."

What Our OTW Shipping Customers Say
CBD company, QIWI, was born out of Josh’s motivation to create a solution that fit his personal needs. After battling with severe anxiety and stress disorders, Josh had tried medicinal products, but with a sensitivity to THC, he couldn't spend his days getting high. So, Josh set out to build the perfect product for him which led to others wanting his product too. In 2020, Josh began to scale up with ShipMonk, but soon realized they were not providing the service level he needed. After switching to OTW Shipping, QIWI was able to confidently scale their operations 1600%, having their best month yet.
"I have the customer support - more than I need. Reliability has been off the charts. Fulfillment has made the biggest difference to our customers. And on top of that I'm actively being kept in the loop."
