CBD Oil Europe Private Label Program FAQ
What is the difference between Private Label and White Label?
Private label and White label are quite similar, the main difference is when you create a private label you receive a finished product that has your logo and branding on it. This can either be just labels, or can be labels & boxes. When you purchase something under white label we just provide the filled bottles and it’s up to you attach your own labels to the bottle.
Which is more economical, Private Label or White Label?
White labelling requires less front end investment, especially if you already have the necessary equipment and time to do the work, or have a partner that can handle small production runs. Private label it requires an upfront investment for creating the designs and labelling the bottles and putting them in boxes. Unit economics are much better because you leverage our economies of scale. Smaller productions require a higher investment if calculated per final product.
Our rates are very competitive and we specialise in CBD oil. The ink on our labels won’t smudge because they are oil resistant. Our standard print order is 10.000 units. If you don’t have the up front investment you could wait a little longer than usual so you can piggyback off another production run.
What is the typical turnaround time?
The turnaround time for private label CBD depends on the size of your order. Typically we aim to have your order ready within 20 working days from receipt & approval of your finished designs. For larger or more complex order we will give you a time estimate before you complete your final payment.

Can I choose what carrier oil is used in my private label CBD product?
We offer four different carrier oil. Organic hemp seed oil, Refined hemp seed oil, Olive oil and MCT oil.
Organic Hemp Seed Oil
This oil is produced by cold pressing hemp seeds. The resulting oil is high in omega fatty acids, but has a limited shelf life. Organic hemp seed oil is prone to getting rancid and can deteriorate very quickly if not stored under ideal conditions.
Refined hemp seed oil.
Our standard for food supplements is refined hemp seed oil. Refining hemp seed oil improves shelf life while preserving the nutrients in hemp seed oil. This significantly improves in shelf life and tastes more neutral.
Olive oil has a high carrying capacity for CBD, and acts as a natural preservative.
Medium Chain Triglycerides are usually extracted from the coconut. MCT’s are widely used in dietary supplements and is a very stable and neutral product, both for internal or external application
What is the shelf life of your private label products?
The shelf life of the product is dependant on how it is stored and the carrier oil use. For Organic hemp seed oil we guarantee 1 year. For Refined hemp seed oil and Olive oil we guarantee 18 months.
