The manufacturers we choose are such an important factor in who we are. We are always looking for good people within the UK CBD industry who have the same mindset for good value, highly ethical, quality products. You can be assured that we always sample products before selling them and ensure they meet our standards. It is important that we are able to see certification and evidence that they are producing products to the high standards we expect and that the manufacturers we choose, do things the right way. In an unregulated industry, these things couldn’t be more important.
Lorraine and I work to a standard that says if it’s not good enough for us, it’s not good enough for our hapihemp customers. We put our names to everything we see, and our products are all very personal to us.
So, what exactly do we look for?
- Good people make good products. Most of the manufacturers we choose have their own personal stories about their own walk with CBD and why they are so passionate about it. If they love and care about it as we do, it’s a win win.
- They must follow industry standards that have been put in place to ensure the production of a top-quality food supplement or skin care product, with no excuses.
- They must have certification to evidence the quality and background of their products.
- They are happy to let us sample their products before we agree to buy anything, so we know they believe in it themselves.
- If required, they have submitted a Novel Food Application with the Food Standards Agency.
- They can offer us their products at a good price so that we can pass that on and offer our customers our quality CBD products at a competitive price.
Why is this so important to us?
Well, we both needed a company like ours when we were new to CBD. It would have made life so much easier!
Whenever you learn about something new, it can make such a difference when you find someone you trust who has been there before you and can help lead you along the way. This wasn’t my experience when I first learned about CBD. I didn’t know anyone else with experience with it and it seemed much of the information available online wasn’t particularly trustworthy. In fact, I was so unsure that I decided to walk away and continued to suffer.
My fear was that CBD was just another gimmick that companies were making false claims about, just like so many other “supplements” available to buy online these days. How did I know who was genuine and who was trying to make a quick buck? My health and wellness had become so important to me back then and I wasn’t prepared to take the risk of putting anything into my body that could be risky.
For another 8 years the quality of my life, as well as those around me, was severely impacted. I stopped living and really just existed. These were not good times for any of us, although when you’re fortunate enough to have good people in your life who love you, it makes it bearable.
Through sheer desperation, I decided to risk it and try a CBD oil that I had found in my research. It seemed to be from a genuine company, so I took the risk of trying. In a very short time, I was delighted that I did and was left wishing I had tried it so much sooner. Why didn’t more people know about this wonderful product? Needless to say, after some time, the company that I bought the oil from became our very first supplier for CBD oils.
From here our company grew and with each new product, we would work together with each new supplier to ensure everything was top quality and as affordable as possible for our customers. We now have a full range of products including CBD patches, CBD capsules, CBD gummies and CBD tea. We are also very proud of our skin care range too. Our wonderful CBD Oil roller is one of our most potent products and is so handy to keep with you wherever you go. This little product had so much love put into it that we can’t help but be proud. Our CBD Balm gets great reviews too and Lorraine and I never tire of hearing how our products have impacted our customers. It still brings a little buzz of hapi-ness.
For me, hapihemp was born from my personal discovery of CBD and a desire to share it with other people who may find it has the same benefits I had. No life experience, be it good or bad, has to be wasted. My own struggles and fears led me to ask lots of questions about this wonderful little plant containing CBD, which in turn took me down a path of discovery. These days I am able to use all of that life experience to ensure hapihemp always produces a top-quality product for our customers.
…and that is why choosing the right manufacturer is so important.
