The products that you sell do fall under a prohibited category. The merchandise is considered drug paraphernalia. Due to federal or state regulations pertaining to that merchandise some credit card processing companies avoid providing service.
Refer to Shopify's Payments Policy as found here; https://www.shopify.com/legal/terms-payments-us
It reads; ['Products or services that are otherwise prohibited by our financial partners. *Drug paraphernalia; any equipment designed for making or using drugs, such as bongs, vaporizers and hookahs'.]

The best way to get a payment solution in CBD is to go through an established business that creates CBD Merchant Accounts everyday. Feel free to contact me at email@example.com if you're interested in this type of payment processing on Shopify.
This is an accepted solution.
I sent you a private email response to your email address of record. My contact details are there as well.
And be sure to ask above our [same-day-activation merchant account] and new payment capture form. We have Shopify merchants selling hemp flower, pre-rolls, CBD gummies, CBD oils, vapes, and more. These solutions comply with Shopify's Payments Policy and come with same day activation.
