What is Google's policy on CBD oil, this product is legal in 50 states as well as most of the rest of the world, does google take paid adds for CBD oil or do they only offer inclusion in their shopping search?

 

- thanks

Hi Andrew,

There are some folks around here who know better than I but my guess is, it likely still falls into the same category as Marijuana. https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/6014299?hl=en

My hunch is whatever you're seeing on Shopping are not real CBD oils.

Hi Tommy,

Thanks - how do I get Google on the phone to discuss this, CBD is made from hemp, not cannabis and has no psychoactive component - ie it doesn't get one "high"?

Currently google makes no distinction between industrially derived CBD, and medical cannabis. They list it as a recreational drug, they list it as not acceptable to advertise within the united states as a substance that is ok, and also make no variance or provision even for states where medical cannabis is legal, even though it is not medical cannabis. It is very frustrating and ignorant. I expect better from a company that wishes to be perceived as progressive or innovative, as I'm sure you do as well. Hope that helps.

Have google just gone hell for leather on this topic all of a sudden?  I had a campaign setup running fine, now I can't do anything?
