B) Access valuable information about the company instantly. When shopping for CBD products, it’s essential to know where your products are coming from and how they’re made. This is easy to do when you buy online. You should be able to perform a background check on the company, get access to third-party lab reports, and see customer reviews. When you shop in-store, you lose almost all of these quality checks.

Sisters Shayda and Sydney Torabi founded Restart CBD in September 2018, just before the Farm Bill passed. Sydney Torabi said the changes in the law have made business run more smoothly.
