*FROM THE CEO*
16 November 2019
As of this date, Georgia CBD Distributors is caught-up in the US's inconsistent approach to banking protocols for the hemp/CBD industry. The 2019 Farm Bill, which has been signed into law, has banking provisions that are not being acted upon. We have been trying to secure credit card/merchant service since June 2019 to no avail. Currently, we are submitting applications to a less-than-stellar e-check option. We do not know how long that process will take to conduct usaual and customary business transactions enjoyed by millions of businesses in this nation.
Georgia CBD Distributors will make it through this morass! We kindly ask you for your patience and understanding as to why we are delayed providing you, dear cliet-patient, with premium products that enhance your LIfe. Thank you for your support.
