How Do I Become a CBD Distributor? 

There has never been a better time to get started in the CBD business; with the industry growing as much as it is, business owners have even more options on how to operate. Some options include becoming a wholesaler which typically refers to those who want to sell CBD in retail locations. You also have the option of dropshipping which is geared towards those who want to sell via an online store and have us handle the shipping of the product to their customers. And finally, you have the option of being a distributor which means you purchase products from us at margins that are significantly lower than wholesale and sell into other stores such as convenience stores, large retail chains such as CVS and Walgreens and more.

Frequently Asked Questions – CBD Oil Distribution 

  1. What happens if I am not able to meet the $30,000 / month minimum order by month 6? If you are unable to meet this minimum by month six, we will reevaluate your distribution model and the next month there will be a 10% discount deduction until you meet the minimum.  
  2. How do I determine which products to carry? We recommend that you fully outline the customers you would like to sell to. Once you have locked down your target market you should be able to easily determine which products would work best for each target market. Here are some examples below: 
    1. Spas and salons – Skincare is always a good option for this type of market, they may also be interested in carrying the different CBD salves that we offer 
    2. Fitness studios – Typically, these people are looking for quick, on the go style products such as capsules, gummies, and even cocoas to get an afterworkout sugar boost  
    3. Doctors office, chiropractors, and more – These offices are the most versatile and will usually want to carry tinctures of varying potencies, capsules, gummies, and softgels 

 

  1. What are some tips on being successful and making my business stand out from the rest?  As a company that has been in this industry from the beginning, we have learned a lot about the industry and how it is constantly changing. Here are some of our recommendations on how to set yourself apart from the competition: 
    1. Education Yourself: Being educated about products, industry regulations, and more will equip you to answer your customer questions and make them feel at ease. The more you know the more comfortable customers will feel purchasing from you. At US Hemp Wholesale we have a wide variety of resources that will help you stay up to date with the industry.
      1. Understand Your Target Market: At this point in the hemp industry, it is more important than ever you decide exactly who you want to sell to and be as specific as possible. Once you have figured that out, make sure you understand what makes that target market tick. (ex. Are they looking for products that make them feel healthy and rejuvenated? Is ease and quick on-the-go products something they prioritize? Are they young, middle-aged, older, or primarily male or female? All of these and so much more will help you narrow down not only what products to sell, but also how to approach the sale.  
      2. Be Prepared with a Quality Product: Consumers are smart and very curious; most consumers now will want to know every ingredient in anything they will be ingesting. Therefore, it is of the utmost importance you not only have all of that information ready to go for them, but you also have a Certificate of Analysis (COA) to back up the product information. At US Hemp Wholesale you will have access to all of the COA’s for each product and they will update as we produce new batches.  
  1. Is it more beneficial for me to private label or distribute your brand? In order to answer this question, we want you to think about the following things: 
    1. Do you want to establish your own brand or are you just wanting to be a part of this industry in any way you can? If you just want to be a part of the industry, we would recommend going with our brand because we already have an established brand and you will have an easier time building a book without the hassle of developing your own marketing and brand recognition.  
    2. Do you already have an established business or brand of other products that you would continue to use when selling CBD? If yes, we would steer you towards private labeling because you have already built customer trust.  
    3. Do you have a lot of other CBD companies competing in your area? If yes, we would want you to consider private labeling because there has to be something that sets you apart from the competition. One way to do that is to establish your own brand and build customer trust by combining quality products with quality service.  
  2. Do you offer marketing materials, packaging, and more to help set my business apart? Yes! We offer marketing materials and resources for you to give to your customers to inform them of anything from information about the endocannabinoid system all the way to information about our pet products. We also will be coming out with a brand-new packaging line with corrugate display boxes that are shelf ready! Once this packaging launches you will be the first to know! If there is anything else that you think would be helpful for your business we are happy to either provide them for you or give you recommendations on who can make what you are looking for, all you have to do is ask!
