Why you can trustlogo

  • Leafreport's mission is to provide accurate, objective, and valuable content for CBD, which is why we're transparent about our review process  and  how we rate products and brands. We may receive compensation. Here’s how we make money.
  • Our review is consumer-focused only and we do not check or take a stand regarding medical effects.
  • Statements regarding CBD products have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
  • Please advise your physician prior to each use of CBD.

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

Methodology

  • Read our methodology for more details about ranking and our review process.

    Data Collection and Rating

    In our review process, we receive CBD products directly from the brand to personally review ourselves, so we can give you an accurate idea of the packaging, potency, taste, smell, feel, and overall experience of each product. We also discuss the company’s shipping and returns policy.
    Another important step we take is reviewing each individual product for details such as the certificate of analysis to assess the CBD level and CBD variance, THC level, and contaminants.
    We take all factors into account and give each CBD brand and each CBD product a score for each parameter.
    All of the information we collect is generated into a concise, easy to read review and put into our extensive database. Keep in mind, our reviews are never intended to substitute or act as medical advice.

    Product DataBase

    Our database collects key information for each product, including CBD product prices, potencies, third-party lab test results, flavors, additional ingredients, hemp quality, extract types, product variety, and more.
    We then use all of this combined data to give each brand and product a standardized rating out of five points.

    Brand Review Process

    There are many factors we consider when we review the quality, integrity and products of a CBD brand. We rate each brand on several factors including:

    • Transparency & accuracy. It is important that a CBD brand is forthcoming with who makes up their team, their mission, manufacturing process, and lab reports. Also, we look for the accuracy of the CBD and THC levels in the products’ lab reports.
    • Hemp quality. Hemp quality can be a deciding factor between a good CBD brand and a great CBD brand. We look for organic and sustainable farming methods with attention to detail in each manufacturing step. 
    • The variety of products they offer. We like to see several CBD product types and flavors.
    • Customer service. It is essential that each CBD company has multiple ways to connect to customer service to ask questions. We look for speedy and complete responses.
    • Price and discounts. Competitive pricing is an important aspect of being a top-rated CBD brand. We also look for discount options and ways to save on your order.

    Market Reports

    Another way Leafreport stands out from other CBD review websites is our evidence-based market reports. For each one, we purchase different types of CBD products and send them for independent lab testing to check whether their levels of CBD and other cannabinoids match the label.

    Information Updates

    Writers and editors conduct our reviews and our database on an annual basis but continually make updates throughout the year. We maintain frequent contact with brands and highlight any changes in offerings.

    The Review Team

    Our review team is made up of a wide chain of qualified CBD review writers, some with medical degrees, some with statistics backgrounds, others with ample experience in the CBD arena. Each and every one of our CBD reviews are approved by our medical reviewer before being published on our website to ensure all information is accurate. 

    Conflicts of Interest

    While Leafreport does have partnerships with many of the reviewed brands, we manage potential conflicts of interest by maintaining a wall between our content and business operations. This wall is designed to prevent our writers and the review process from being influenced or impacted by our business partnerships. This way, all reviews can provide an unbiased review that serves the interests of our users.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    This ethanol extracted, full spectrum topical product is beige in color, with the viscosity of a traditional thick lotion, for smooth application. This organic product is recommended by the company for use on external skin only. 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.
