How to Open A CBD Product Company

CBD Infused ProductsCBD infused products can be created through vertical integration or by contracting with a company that offers white labeling.

Vertical Integration is the combining of hemp cultivation with hemp processing, product formulation, packaging, branding, and distribution under a single ownership. Vertical Integration is the “in house” consolidation of all aspects of cbd production from the field to the shelf.

White Labeling is the practice of purchasing an existing product from the producer and branding and selling the product under your company’s name. Several companies offering white labeling options include formulation and development for customization of your cbd products.

Private Labeling is licensing your product to another company to sell under its own name and brand, rather than under yours. Private Labeling is a viable option for vertical integration companies.
