Determine the CBD milligram per milliliter concentration of your tincture. Based on a 30mL liquid bottle, choose any concentration between 100 mg and 5000 mg of active CBD.
Many oils, both unflavored and flavored, work well as carriers for CBD extract. Examples include coconut oil (both regular and MCT,) olive oil, grape seed oil, hemp seed oil and more. Natural flavors can also be added as you prefer.
Pick from 15 mL, 30 mL (1 oz) and 60 mL (2 oz) bottles.

To assist on your journey, here are some common questions and information we’re asked about selling CBD. Contact us for more advice!
Laws vary from state to state, so we recommend hiring legal counsel to ensure compliance. But in general, the FDA states:
o The product must not have disease-curing claims on labels or websites
o The product must not be marketed as a food or dietary supplement
o Some states require QR codes on boxes/labels to drive consumers to COAs
o See Indiana’s law as an example of stringent labeling requirements, which go beyond COA and include batch identification number, batch date, expiration date, and more.
As CBD products are a new industry, pricing varies widely. Generally, a higher concentration (milligrams) in a product leads to a higher retail price. We recommend researching competitors in your area to get an idea of the current market price.
Remember when marketing CBD to never make disease-curing claims. It also can’t be sold in jurisdictions where it is banned; some states have limited sales until the FDA publishes guidelines. There are also restrictions on major digital advertising platforms, including Google and Facebook/Instagram. However many publishers, including select websites (including programmatic buying), direct mail, print and some radio/broadcast have agreed to accept advertising.
We recommend utilizing a graphic designer to make a logo for your CBD company, and layouts for packaging and labels. Hempsi can provide standard label layouts for designers. Be sure when naming your company, that the web site address (URL) is available to purchase!
