The U.S. Postal Service says it is reviewing public reaction to new vaporizer mail limits in advance of them taking effect April 26.
The USPS plans to ban mailed vaporizers by mid-summer after Congress approved the ban in December.
USPS spokesman David Coleman told Hemp Industry Daily that public comments on the new limits are not available to the public until the final ruling is announced. Several hemp and marijuana vape operators have said the change will severely harm their businesses.
FedEx and UPS already have said they will follow the U.S. Postal Service’s directive and won’t ship vaping products.
U.S. consumers ordered $44 million in CBD vape cartridges online last year, according to Rick Maturo with the Nielsen Cannabis Insights Practice.
Under the new regulations, sellers of vaping products must do the following:
- Ship through private companies, such as DHL, which requires a signature upon delivery.
- Register with the U.S. attorney general.
- Implement an age-verification system.
Business-to-business sales—whether for wholesale distribution or manufacturing—are exempt from the USPS shipping ban.
