When it comes to purchasing CBD oil they're not all created equal, be aware of what you're buying and know who you're buying from!

Purchasing CBD oil for the first time can be extremely confusing due to the vast differences in products and prices on offer, if you're venturing into the world of CBD you might be feeling somewhat overwhelmed and have lots of questions.

"How do I know which CBD company to trust when buying CBD for the first time? " ...  "With so many sellers out there, how do I differentiate the various CBD brands and their products? "...   "Why is it some brands of CBD oil are very cheap whilst others are very expensive?... What are the differences in CBD oils ?"

Please read on ... here we will try to both enlighten and educate you on the industry, what to look out for and at the same time demonstrate why the oils here at NOPC Oils (Natural Organic Pure Clean CBD Oils) are considered so special and loved so much by our many returning customers.

You are probably already aware that 2018/19 saw CBD (Cannabidiol) everywhere, literally becoming a household name overnight! Thrown into the media spotlight and mainstream news, a hot topic which has been publicised, promoted and has become one of the most discussed topics around the globe.  This hype has brought with it a lot of conflicting information, as well as an array of CBD infused products now on offer and sold at well known high street health food stores, major chemists, supermarkets and online. Boosting CBD to rank one of the highest google search terms, and the curiosity shows no sign of slowing down.

You cannot go anywhere without hearing, reading or seeing CBD. This is a far cry from the once historically frowned upon and outlawed substance, due to the fact it derives from cannabis - people are finally starting to look past the stigma, listening, and learning. A long journey towards the evolution for the Cannabis saliva plant and CBD.

Media which has influenced and somewhat accredited through heavily publicised and mass media filled journalism which has in previous years, typically tarnished the name of the humble and versatile cannabis sativa (hemp plant) . A robust, natural plant which also carries a multitude of sustainable environmentally friendly uses - aside from its extracted compound, cannabidiol commonly known as CBD.

This continuous mass media frenzy for CBD has created a huge rise and sudden influx of opportunists and entrepreneurs alike who are quickly looking to cash in on the 'CBD phenomenon' that is sweeping the globe. An industry that shows no signs of slowing down for the foreseeable future.

So with this said - the future looks very promising for cannabis sativa and the CBD industry as reported by FORBES in 2019.


Some may say there isn't one, however ...

The first direct result of this mass media CBD trend has led to articles, TV shows and advertising which actively promotes and discusses the potential health claims associated with CBD. These have been frequently shared across social media platforms by CBD enthusiasts, advocates, consumers as well as its many distributors alike. There are many large companies which have experienced representatives being branded as 'snake oil salesmen' by the same media who promote it, conflicting stories with false information which are therefore hugely damaging to the CBD industry. 

With such vast and varied information being passed around as well as endless product ranges and huge differences in price range, there is naturally a lot of confusion surrounding the subject of CBD. Like most trends it brings with it greedy untrustworthy opportunists, selling fake CBD products, enticing consumers with their extremely low prices whilst providing them with incorrect, false and dangerous information. Leading to confusion amongst consumers who are trying to simply understand the basics like; what is CBD? and where does it come from?

In some cases tests have shown products being sold on the market as CBD but don't actually contain any trace of the compound at all and others which contained harmful chemicals, including banned substances and pesticides used in farming or mass manufacturing processes of which can potentially be extremely dangerous.

There were many CBD products independently tested at random which were reportedly found to contain higher levels of THC than what is currently permitted under EU & UK law. A vast amount that were tested did not contain any traces of CBD at all! Causing huge concern within the industry and amongst consumers, creating confusion and a lack of trust in the CBD industry, its manufacturers and distributors. 

The CBD marketplace has therefore become a minefield for the consumer leading to some UK and EU government bodies and associations (MHRA ,EFSA ) to take action and look closer at the CBD companies, their products, procedures, standards as well as evaluate marketing practices.

Unfortunately, there are companies who continue to ignore these guidelines by wrongly giving out false information, advertising their products whilst making medical claims. This is damaging to the future of the CBD industry as it could potentially lead to CBD being classified as a novel food.


Taking the above into consideration, it's essential to make sure the CBD you use is high-quality, safe and comes from a reliable source.

Read on to find out what exactly makes for a good, safe, and effective CBD oil.

"How do I know which company I can trust to buy CBD products from?"

Look to see if the company is a member of and represented by the Cannabis Trades Association (CTA).

The Hemp Trades Association UK Limited - trading as The Cannabis Trades Association is the largest and oldest cannabinoid centric trade association for the UK and Europe, working with all sectors of the hemp and cannabis industry to promote good practice, provide practical advice and ensure consumers of legal cannabis and hemp products have access to top quality information.

A bit about the CTA?

The CTA UK work consistently with the MHRA and the EFSA as recognised Stakeholders to the official guidance given by such authorities as well as working with many local council and law enforcement agencies across the country to establish legislation and ensure the industry has official, effective guidance and standards, with compliance from an internal CTA UK compliance team to assist in maintaining and creating a level playing field between its members of whom are fully compliant. A members failure to comply sees an immediate removal from the CTA UK and membership withdrawn. 

Accredited members of the CTA UK, are required to go through strict processes and compliance requirements, which are set out and are together in accordance and co-operation with the MHRA and EFSA. All products sold by CTA UK members are tested independently to ensure quality and that all such high standards are met. 

The company directors of which are CTA UK members, will have had a full criminal background check, including having there financial status audited - the trading companies in which CTA UK members operate, including social media accounts, all advertising and marketing material is therefore deemed compliant. And this is also extended to branding, including the labelling of their products and packaging, ensuring that all meet the strict guidelines and criteria which is set out by the CTA UK in order to ensure and guarantee full compliance is met, that the rules and guidelines of the industry are duly followed. Thus protecting the consumer and re-establishing trust within the CBD industry and its providers.

It is suggested consumers looking to buy CBD within the UK should in the first instance look towards a distributer that is an active, accredited member of the CTA, in order to ascertain a level of trust and safety.

There is a definitive reason why one CBD Oil Tincture / CBD Oil Drops may be sold for £20.00 in your local high street store, vape shop or local street market and why another CBD Oil is sold for more £££..... Quality!

Ensuring confidence that the product purchased will contain the ingredient that you are actually paying for - CBD (Cannabidiol).

Many CBD Oils sold on the market potentially do not, or in some cases hold very low levels of CBD content, but the products were labelled 10% or 1000mg CBD content This was found out in independent tests carried out.

Final thoughts....

When taking all of this information into consideration, when thinking about starting your CBD journey, you can now see why there is such a contrasting difference in prices depending on where you purchase CBD from. When investing in yourself, think about what you would rather purchase.

In order to save a few £ - a cheap oil that doesn't have the assurance of containing any cannabidiol (CBD) or at least very little content. Runs the risk of being unsafe to consume and doesn't actually have any benefits.


A certified and safe CBD product that may cost a few £ more.... from a company that has be checked for the following; Quality, Standards, Reliability, Process & Trust. And a company that has one of the highest returning customer rates, which speaks for itself! 

We know exactly where we would go!....  What are you waiting for?
