CBD has exploded onto the scene as a versatile and popular new product in the health and wellness space, with applications for everything from serious medical conditions like childhood epilepsy, to more common anxiety issues like public speaking.
With reports indicating that the CBD market will continue to reach millions of dollars each year, and considering that the number is increasing annually, retailers are rushing to stock their shelves with CBD products. But this is where to put the brakes on. Not all CBD products are manufactured equally and, in fact, not all “CBD products” contain their primary ingredient, CBD, when subjected to third-party lab testing.
That’s why it’s important to learn how to correctly distinguish between reliable and high-quality CBD wholesalers and unreliable suppliers. We are talking about people’s health, it’s not a game and we take it very seriously.
Here are some tips or considerations to choose a CBD wholesaler suitable for your business, and above all trustworthy.
Simply put, full-spectrum means that the product contains the full range of cannabinoids and terpenes found in a hemp plant. This means that in addition to CBD, consumers will ingest other cannabinoids ranging from THC to CBN, CBG, and THCV, among many others.
Why would you want to consume these other cannabinoids and terpenes in addition to CBD? Two words: entourage effect. This means that the therapeutic properties of cannabis work together synergistically and the individual effects of each compound are enhanced.

As the name says, CBD isolate means that it is a product containing only CBD. This exclusive CBD composition is made by extracting the CBD from the cannabis plant, while the other compounds in the cannabis are not used at all, it is just CBD, so to speak.
This allows consumers to administer CBD with the assurance that they will not be ingesting other compounds that they may not want to consume, such as THC, a psychoactive cannabinoid responsible for making consumers feel “high”.

Variety in the products you want to sell is important, customers like to experiment and this is where it becomes important to have a good portfolio of products from a recognized wholesaler.
Make sure the brand you want to buy from has a wide and varied offer, from good quality. Like Binoid, which offers live resin products, CBD, DELTA 8, DELTA 9, DELTA 10, THC-O, HHC-O, THC-P, and THCV. Available in the form of cartridges, disposables, gummies, topicals, tinctures, and more.
The importance of choosing a reliable CBD wholesaler cannot be understated when trying to ensure the safety and satisfaction of customers. Studies have found that as many as 70 percent of CBD extracts available online are mislabeled, often containing different levels of cannabinoids than are listed on the bottle.
In some cases, this means that consumers could be getting higher doses of THC, a psychoactive cannabinoid than they expected. This is why it’s important to consider a number of factors before stocking your shelves with a specific wholesaler’s CBD products.
One of the most important factors for choosing a reliable CBD wholesaler is ensuring that each batch of product is thoroughly tested for quality, cannabinoid levels, and potentially contaminates. To make sure that the test results are accurate, check to see if the wholesaler you’re buying from has their products tested by a third party, like Binoid.
Joy Organics reliably conducts thorough product testing using a third-party laboratory to ensure unbiased test results. These full-spectrum CBD products are also organically grown right here in the United States, which, as I’ll get into later, is another important factor.
Each Binoid product is tested 5 times before being sent to a third-party laboratory. Each batch is tested to ensure that high standards are met for each product. In addition, the results are public and are posted on their website.
Pick up the phone and call the CBD wholesale company you’re thinking of doing business with. Give them your email address, and ask them if they can send you an email with additional information on their product. Then, wait and see how long it takes for them to get back to you. If the company takes more than 24 hours to email you, they probably aren’t a fit.
Customer service is important, especially in the cannabis space where it can be hard to distinguish a professional company from a grey-market operator based on their website alone.
The customer service test is one such way to ensure that the company you’re ordering from is well managed and ready to prioritize their clients.
Let’s be honest, first impressions matter, a lot. Extremes are bad and you don’t want something extremely plain that implies you don’t care, but neither do you want packaging that is too aggressive or that the client doesn’t even know what they are looking at.
The best way to market CBD is to target the niche demographic a company wants to serve. Eye-catching but harmonious colors will always be a reliable option, like the ones you find in Binoid‘s products.
From propping up the job market to the lower environmental emissions associated with national as opposed to international transportation, there are many reasons you might want to buy American.
But not only is buying American beneficial for the national industry and local cannabis businesses, but it’s also good for you—both in a health and business sense. This is because hemp grown in the United States is generally safer than anything you could import from abroad.
Testing standards are higher in the United States, making CBD that’s sourced and processed in the country more reliable. Think of it as an extra precaution you can take on behalf of your business and its customers. So before deciding on a wholesaler for your CBD, check the company’s website to see if their products come from the United States.
As a curious fact, Binoid grows its hemp with local hemp farmers in evergreen Oregon to cultivate exclusive phytocannabinoid-rich hemp plants with the best plant genetics, high concentrations of cannabinoids, and beneficial terpenes.
Closely related to the previous point, if you want high purity products, organic is almost always better, and this is especially true when it comes to hemp.
This is because hemp is a bio-accumulator, meaning it absorbs heavy metals, toxins, and chemicals from the environment.
Neither you nor your customers want to ingest pesticides or other potentially harmful substances. Therefore, it is important to choose a wholesaler whose product is made from organic hemp, which means it is free of these unwanted chemicals.
