CBD Requires a High-Risk Processor

Non-traditional industries like CBD, Hemp, and E-Cigarettes require a high-risk payment processing system. In order to streamline business operations and protect the company from any regulatory changes that make the business subject to liability, Journey Business Solutions can help.

We assist your business avoid any potential or future issues with finances and regulation changes.

Rather than shy away from the high-risk component of these non-traditional industries, Journey Business Solution is eager to step into the role as your next high-risk payment processor.

What Is a High Risk Merchant?


A high-risk merchant is a merchant or business whose industry is considered to have a greater likelihood of fraud and/or payment disputes. When a chargeback occurs, it means the funds disputed are held from the business until the card issuer considers said transaction and determines what to do. If the funds to the business are denied, a payment processor will require the merchant to make good on lost funds.

Why Is CBD High Risk?

CBD product sales are considered to be high risk because the industry is fairly new, despite discovery of the cannabinoid in the 1940s, and because of how the oil is cultivated. CBD is federally legal. However, it is derived from cannabis, which is not federally legal and considerably more taboo. CBD’s affiliation with cannabis puts it in a legal gray area that serves as a more high-risk issue for businesses of this type.

Hemp Payment Processing

Hemp, like CBD, is closely affiliated with cannabis and considered high risk. Oftentimes, people conflate hemp and cannabis as being the same plant when, in fact, they are two different plants. As a result, hemp business owners struggle to find a payment processor willing to take on that risk with them. At Journey Business Solutions, we do understand the difference, and we’re willing to work with you and your business to manage that risk.

E-Cig Merchant Services

Electronic cigarettes, more commonly known as “e-cigs” are considered high risk because of the new, changing legal focus around these products, and how their safety is often put into question. (The safety of the products themselves is still being researched as an alternative to smoking.) Like CBD and hemp, e-cigarettes and vaping is a newer industry, and at Journey Business Solutions we want to conduct an open and honest business relationship with you, so you can process payments and make a living.

What to Look For in a High Risk Payment Processor

Where Journey Business Solutions is concerned, you’re interested in making a living and providing a service to others just like any business owner.
