We are very happy to announce that Herb-a-lites is one of the first Hemp and CBD merchants who can now accept all major Credit and Debit cards! Through our extensive network of merchant processing contacts, we were called last week by a long-time contact who shared with us a breakthrough opportunity with a major US bank and the 2nd largest credit card processing company to obtain secure credit card processing.
Unlike the numerous processors we have had for short periods of time, this solution is 100% transparent and offers us traditional financing terms and the knowledge that we will not be shut down for openly offering hemp products.
When you arrive at our checkout page just select the “Pay by Credit Card” option and a simple dropdown window will appear where you can enter your card information and complete your purchase.
This change is partly due to the knowledge that with the imminent passage of the Farm Bill as soon as this month, financial institutions are stepping into this industry with the full confidence that industrial hemp will join the ranks of other agricultural commodities such as wheat, corn, and soy.
We are building up our product inventories to assure that the additional ease of ordering can be matched by Herb-a-lites products. Happy shopping and we look forward to serving you soon.

For centuries, North Americans have utilized hemp in their homes, diets, and health regimens. For decades, we’ve also turned to imported products to meet much of our growing need.
And now, after years of major change for US agriculture and industry, real investment in this versatile crop stands to significantly elevate our economy and quality of life for generations to come.
The idea of upping hemp production is already common ground politically. As farmers have faced water shortages, unstable markets, and punishing seasonal conditions, communities around the country have pressured lawmakers to help them restore US agriculture with more profitable, sustainable plants.
Hemp has long been seen to fit that bill. Best known for its use in textiles, it offers wide-ranging applications that countless sectors are keen to get in on.
For example, hemp seeds in whole or processed form contain an impressive amount of protein, nutrients, and essential fatty acids, among other things — offering an efficient way to boost nutrition in human and animal diets — while hempseed oil has increasingly become a preferred ingredient in common food, beauty, and health products.
