The Bottom Line

My review of Nordic Oil is acceptable based on their organic hemp quality and the effortless buying experience. They do publish the potency for some products directly on each corresponding product page on the main website. However, only one product’s purity test report is available, so there’s room for improvement in the testing area. Nordic Oil also carries a fairly wide range of CBD potencies, ranging from 5 mg up to 2000 mg in organic full spectrum product options. 

They offer premium quality, organic CBD products that are available in tinctures, capsules, edible chewing gum, topicals, and vitamins. Their products range from $9.00 to $129.00, with an average price point of $.23 per mg of CBD, meaning that their product prices are much higher than average, when compared to other organic brands in the market. Nordic Oil offers free shipping with a $50 minimum order, or shipping is calculated at checkout and depends on the shipping method. A money back satisfaction guarantee is available on all products for 30 days.

The accuracy variances for these Nordic Oil products vary widely concerning potency, with one product testing above the 10% variance limit, one product testing lower than the level allowed, and one product with no available potency testing, so Nordic Oil can improve their accuracy. In addition, none of their products were purity tested for foreign contaminants, to the best of our knowledge.

Pros: Cons:
  • Organic, non-GMO products
  • CO2 neutral website
  • Regulated by European Industrial Hemp Association
  • Slow, semi-helpful reply from UK customer service
  • Inadequate potency and purity testing available to consumers
  • No centralized lab testing hub

About the Company

Nordic Oil was founded in Munich, Germany in 2018 by two brothers who wanted to enable everyone to have the opportunity to experience CBD in their daily lives. Today, they are a multi-national company and do international sales through their country based sister sites, according to the website. They offer organic products in a full spectrum extract option, in order to appeal to and satisfy as many of their consumers as possible, according to their website.

Transparency

Independent CBD testing is a necessary quality and safety control measure to ensure that the labeled amounts of CBD and THC are very close to the contents of each final product a customer receives. All of the products in my Nordic Oil order were third party tested for CBD and THC potency, but none were tested for purity due to their organic designation, according to the company.

Although some products do not have this testing link, Nordic Oil customers can view all available third party lab reports for their CBD product catalog on each individual product page online:

It must be noted, however, that independent third party purity and potency lab reports for UK manufactured, white labeled items are not easily accessible to consumers. After contacting customer service several times, they provided some purity test results for one of the three requested products, but no potency or pesticide reports were emailed.

Accuracy

Using each product’s corresponding product page, it was somewhat easy to match my products to the independent third party lab reports provided. As far as the highest accuracy variances in this order, the 600 mg full spectrum capsules tested with a 28.5% accuracy variance, which is above the acceptable 10% limit. Each capsule contained 12.85 mg of CBD, for a total of 771 total mg of CBD per bottle, according to the COA:

The lowest accuracy variance was found in the 500 mg full spectrum tincture, which tested at 496.2 total mg of CBD, or a mere .76% variance, which is far below the 10% limit allowed. All products were confirmed by third party testing to contain less than the legal 0.3% limit of THC; however, purity test reports were unavailable for most Nordic Oil products.

Several white label products manufactured in the UK do not have readily available lab reports for potency or purity. These reports were not provided even after repeatedly requesting them from UK customer service, so there’s ample room for improvement in the area of testing accuracy and transparency at Nordic Oil.

Reputation

Since their establishment in 2018, Nordic Oil has been committed to providing market leading CBD products, as well as an in house team of CBD experts to help consumers every step of the way, from ordering to dosing instructions. Their customer support team and their quality products have earned them a 4.9 star rating on Google Reviews.

They are firm believers in CBD education, and to make consumers feel more at ease using CBD, Nordic Oil includes a 30 page booklet with every order, titled “Read Me: Everything You Need to Know About Nordic Oil CBD,” that talks about extract types, dosage, formulation, and other helpful information for consumers.

Manufacturing Process

Nordic Oil is a legal, authorized grower of premium, organic U.S. and U.K. hemp, sourced locally from several regulated farms. Nordic Oil’s full spectrum hemp is extracted using either a clean CO2 process or an ethanol extraction method, depending on the product, before being formulated into full spectrum extract and blended with easily digestible MCT oil as the carrier for maximum bioavailability:

After formulation, the next step is independent third party CBD testing, which is an important quality and safety control measure utilized by Nordic Oil to ensure that the labeled potency of CBD and THC matches the contents. They claim to conduct independent potency lab testing for all of their products and post the available results online. At this time, however, comprehensive purity tests for the Nordic Oil product catalog are unavailable to consumers, as are potency test results for several of their products.

Range of Products

They offer premium quality organic, full spectrum CBD products that are available in tinctures, topicals, skin care, vitamins, capsules, and edible chewing gum. Their products range in potency from 5 mg to 2000 mg, and are higher priced than comparable premium organic brands, with an overall average price point of $.23 per mg of CBD.

Buying Experience

Each product page on this user friendly website provides comprehensive product information for each item in that category, as well as ingredients, potencies, and suggested uses. There is an easy way to shop all products using the “All products” link located in the main menu, as seen here:

 

Nordic Oil’s customer support team is available for questions via email, online chat, messaging, and phone. Customer service was messaged online and emailed about the missing COA reports for 3 products in my order, but no written reply was ever received. When the Nordic Oil phone number was called, a live person answered and informed us that all the blue labeled products have a third party lab report on the main Nordic Oil website, located on each corresponding product page.

However, we were informed that all Nordic Oil white labeled CBD products are made in the U.K., and these particular COAs are only provided upon request. The U.K. based customer service team was emailed three times concerning the necessary third party lab results, and a reply was received after 10 business days, offering purity testing results only for the topical UK labeled eye cream:

All available third party lab results for the Nordic Oil blue labeled, CBD products made in the U.S. are located under the “Third Party Lab Results” link on each corresponding product page online, as mentioned earlier. While the potency for CBD and THC was independently tested for each product, purity testing for their organic products is unavailable for consumer access at this time, to the best of our knowledge.

Orders get free shipping with a $50 order minimum, or shipping costs are calculated upon checkout, per this table:

A shipping confirmation with tracking was received. The order arrived via USPS in a plain, white box that was discreet. The products were securely packaged and the box contained individually wrapped items.

Mani Drops, 150 mg, 30 ml

This organic CO2 extracted full spectrum tincture is milky white in appearance, with a somewhat thick oil consistency. There are visible measuring marks on the dropper for precise dosing. The flavor is not overpowering when combined with a beverage, per the company’s serving suggestions, with no grassy or herbal aftertaste. Priced at $35.00, this tincture costs $.23 per mg of CBD. Potency and purity tests were unavailable at this time, after repeatedly contacting customer service. Mani tincture further states on its company product page that “for best results, take 15 to 30 minutes before sleeping.”

CBD Tincture, 500 mg, 30 ml

This organic CO2 extracted full spectrum tincture is light amber yellow in appearance, with a thinner viscosity than a typical oil. The company recommended serving size is 1 ml, and there are visible measuring marks on the dropper for precise dosing. Priced at $39.00, this tincture equals $.07 per mg of CBD. This product tested as containing 496.2 total mg of CBD, which is a mere .76% variance and under the 10% limit allowed. Less than .03% THC was detected, and purity tests were unavailable at this time.

 

 

 

CBD Capsules, 600 mg, 10 mg each, 60 count

Like all of the other CBD products from Nordic Oil, these capsules are organic, natural, and non-GMO. These CO2 extracted capsules are formulated using MCT oil for maximum bioavailability. These full spectrum capsules are light amber in color and have a soft texture. Priced at $49.00, which is a moderate $.08 per mg of CBD. Each capsule tested contained 12.85 mg of CBD per 10 mg labeled capsule, for a total of 771 mg total CBD per bottle and a 28.5% variance.

Eyr Cream, 50 mg, 50 ml

This ethanol extracted, full spectrum topical product is beige in color, with the viscosity of a traditional thick lotion, for smooth application.

It is blended with MCT oil for maximum absorption and bioavailability. While no independent third party potency tests were accessible at this time, this topical cream passed purity testing for microbes and pathogens, but no test reports for pesticides or heavy metals were shown. The liposomal, or fatty layered, structure of the Eyr cream enables optimal topical absorption of the active CBD ingredient into the skin, according to the company.
