As CBD has become more accepted and available, it has become part of the larger market. In doing so, it has also adopted some trends of other industries along the way. One of these is white labeling and private labeling. Many CBD users are unsure what this means and how it is being used by their CBD wholesaler to sell them their products.


What is private labeling?

In private labeling, a third party manufactures a product for a customer. However, this product is produced specifically for a company. This means that the product is unique to the company itself in terms of the actual product, quality, and branding.


What is white labeling?

With white labeling, the product is also produced by a third-party manufacturer. However, as opposed to private label products, white-label products are the same product used for multiple companies. Think “store brand” products. Once the product is received by the store, they rebrand it for their purposes. With white labeling, you have the same product across multiple stores and locations.


How does private labeling apply to CBD?

Sellers of private label CBD control not only the labeling and branding of their products, but the specific formulations of their CBD. A seller will approach a manufacturer and they will work together to establish an individual product. Once they have made the product, the seller trademarks it and takes it to market. The private label process allows CBD wholesalers to have a unique product and enables them to put more consideration into their CBD formulations.


How does white labeling apply to CBD?

The hemp growing process can be expensive and time-consuming. White labeling helps sellers who can’t invest a lot of money and time into formulating their own unique CBD. A popular example of this is CBD gummies. A manufacturer will cultivate, extract, and formulate a CBD gummy. A seller will then buy those gummies and sell them with their own packaging. This reduces investments for sellers who don’t want to be involved in multiple steps of the supply chain.


Private label and white label products both have their pros and cons. Generally, white label products are cheaper to produce, and have a manufacturer’s guarantee of quality. Private labels give you more control over brand and product. Both private and white labeling is profitable, but in CBD, sales product quality is always the most important factor. However, private labels are usually more sought after because of their unique formulations and brand identity.
