White Label CBD Coffee vs. Wholesale CBD Coffee

coffee beans

If you are launching your own coffee brand, you’ll have many decisions to make. Undoubtedly the most important of these is the coffee that you use.

You’ll be faced with two primary choices. You can make use of an established brand, and trade in on success that has already been established. There is a reason that many businesses franchise a coffee chain, such as Starbucks or Costa, in their property. Customers recognise and trust these brands. Along with popular home brands such as Taylors, you’ll have plenty of options when it comes to importing wholesale coffee beans for your brand.

For us, most importantly from your perspective is the ability to forge your own identity by creating a unique White Label coffee brand. There is no shortage of suppliers willing to provide such a service. This means that what you lack in immediate brand awareness can be made up in bespoke branding of your product. There are pros and cons to both approaches, so let’s assess each option in turn.

If you are considering wholesale or white label, don’t forget that we offer a range of products to fit your needs. Calm Recovery supplies the UK with all of the White Label CBD Coffee options that will suit your requirements.

Wholesale CBD Coffee

Everybody has a preferred brand of coffee while shopping in the supermarket, and most of us will gravitate to one high street chain over another while taking a break from shopping. This means that you can cash in on familiarity if you so choose – although, naturally, you risk potentially alienating customers that retain loyalty to a rival!

With a CBD wholesale brand, such as Calm Recovery, you can also set the mind of ethical customers at rest. We feel that we stand apart from other brands, and with the ability to allow you to put your own stamp on our finest coffee. Established brands have established their eco-friendly credentials, and your customers will be assured that your coffee is organic and fair trade. This could be the difference between attracting business and not in the early days. Customers with strong views, allergies or other dietary requirements may prefer to take a, “better the devil you know” approach.

Calm Recovery’s CBD Wholesale service can be very cost-effective in the short-term. With most wholesalers, you’ll need to order in huge bulk, and you’ll be supplied for quite some time with no further work required. But when you are just starting out, you may not have the budget or resources available to cater for this. We have a very low minimum order quantity, meaning your CBD coffee business can be up and running with little risk.

White Label Coffee

‘White Label’ is a term that originated within the music industry. It was used to describe records that were not available on general sale, used exclusively by DJs. The name came from the generic, blank label that adorned the vinyl. Don’t mistake white labelling for private labelling – they are different business practices.

The food industry has now embraced the concept of white label packaging. In essence, you will be creating your own brand. You’ll still be importing your coffee beans from an established wholesaler. You will not be able to amend the ingredients of the beans, or request changes to the production process. You can, however, market the coffee as your own invention. Nobody will ever know the source of your supply, but when you make your first order, you will know by quality and taste that Calm Recovery offer the best CBD White Label UK choices – you only need to try us.

White label products can be an indispensable marketing tool. Given time, you could build a following to rival the aforementioned high street chains. Once you establish a loyal audience, your coffee can become a by-word for quality and taste. Naturally, though, there will be costs involved at the beginning of your journey.

You will need to invest in experienced graphic designers and marketers to create and promote your packaging. You may also find that it takes a while to gain the following that you crave. We live in a fast-paced world and many people crave convenience. Taking a chance on a new brand can be seen as a risk. If you can convince people to give your coffee a try, however, the rewards can be substantial.

So, which is Best?

Honestly, there is no hard and fast rule as to which approach is best. Every business has different needs, so you will need to make a judgment call based on your own circumstances.

If you are keen to build a loyal customer base and have limited experience, it may be best to begin with a wholesale brand. There is nothing to say that this needs to be a permanent approach, though. As you gain experience and expertise, a bespoke white label brand becomes increasingly appealing.

Of course, by teaming up with Calm Recovery you can enjoy the best of both worlds. Part of our offering is wholesale coffee beans, and we have spent years fine-tuning the taste of our produce to achieve perfection. Should you choose us as your supplier, you’ll have the choice of a range of flavours. It’s up to you if you’d like to infuse your coffee with CBD oil. We think it’s a great move, but we’re probably biased.

Calm Recovery can also help your white label products if that’s a choice you make, though. Our talented and dedicated in-house designer will always be happy to help in any way. Working together, we can grow your business and help you achieve everything that you’re capable of, whether you choose white label or wholesale coffee based products in the UK.

If you’d like to know anything more about Calm Recovery’s CBD Wholesale, or our CBD White Label UK and what we offer, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Can CBD make you happier?

Lets find out…

CBD is the new health poster child. Except this is one that’s here to stay. CBD has seen a massive surge in the market recently with its value expected to reach £1 billion by 2025.

But why is this?

It has been proven to not only benefit a healthy lifestyle and contribute to overall wellbeing in a plethora of ways, but a large number of people have reported feeling lighter, happier and more open to the joys of day to day life – all thanks to CBD.

These amazing benefits have been linked to the effect that CBD has on serotonin receptors.

Studies have shown that, with consistent daily use, individuals have been able to effectively manage stress levels and sleep better – two of the main catalysts of steady mental wellbeing.

Pain-relief and anti-inflammatory properties are just a few of the other miracles that CBD is capable of too. It’s no mystery that combatting these problems helps us to feel more content, sprightly and happier in general.

According to research undertaken in 2014, CBD can also be used as an alternative treatment for depression. An important factor in managing depression is to maintain healthy serotonin levels. Healthy serotonin can impact a number of functions in the body as well as inducing feelings of happiness and well-being when at normal levels.

While managing mood is something that we all know we should be doing, often it seems to have dropped to the bottom of our list.

Let’s get stuck into some ways that CBD can reverse that.

CBD and a Calmer Mind

Day to day life is filled with stresses, woes and dramas. We all have them, don’t worry.

Managing mental health should be one of our top priorities but sometimes we get too bogged down with the more practical and sometimes boring things in life. So why not try something that we can incorporate into our daily routines and habits?

It really is as simple as that.

CBD and a Healthy Lifestyle

CBD is the perfect companion for healthy lifestyle changes such as getting enough rest, exercise and mental stimulation. We can all make our lives change for the better.

Nowadays it’s not uncommon for CBD to be used in all manner of ways, even massage therapies! And with a wide range of CBD infused beverages and edibles becoming readily available, it has become even easier to make small changes every day for the betterment of our health.

CBD has been found to improve overall mood and many people are using it as a natural alternative to over-prescribed anti-depressants, which are often full to brim with chemicals we can’t even pronounce. Not to mention their appalling relapse rates, side effects and costs to the patient.

Statistics have shown that individuals supplementing with CBD daily have reported an elevated feeling in mood, a greater ability to manage stress and an increased quality of sleep.

There are also a number of articles and journals that advocate the use of CBD in order to increase libido and self-esteem. It has been proven that having a healthy sex-life and higher self-esteem can boost morale, productivity, benefit concentration and overall enjoyment of life.

There’s not many better ways to put a smile on your face than that!

So if you are feeling a bit down in the dumps and you think you’ve tried everything, maybe it’s time to reach for a more natural supplement to give you that uplifting feeling you have been longing for.

How can you get a bit more CBD in your life?

With a wide range of CBD beverages such as coffee and hot chocolate alongside an array of tasty edibles to suit your needs, the list is infinite when it comes to getting some CBD in your life.

Whether you’re a coffee kind of guy or a chocolate kind of girl, there’s something for everyone. In our modern era, you don’t need to do the guesswork, it’s already done for you.

Whatever tickles your fancy, it’s probably available. From gluten free CBD edibles to caffeine or de-caffeinated CBD coffee, the choice yours.

While habits are often harder to break, we can just try baby steps. Small changes are all we need to make big progress. Some people think we need to change everything about our lifestyles in order to reap the best benefits but that’s just not true.

While having healthy habits can be great for us, it could just be easier to simply substitute one thing for another. Try changing your cup of Joe in the morning for one that contains CBD and go from there.

Easy.

Is CBD coffee more effective than CBD oil?

Cannabis leaf and cbd oil tincture

CBD is everywhere now. From what was once a very hush-hush product in the wings of the health world, it has blossomed into a major player, promising everything from anxiety-relief to improved athletic performance and libido.

In fact, it’s come so far that companies are infusing CBD in all manner of products. And here at the Calm Recovery, we are no different, having infused – you guessed it – coffee beans with CBD! But are these infusions better than the original?

That’s right, we’re talking CBD oil. The poster child for hemp.

Shall we see?

Let’s define effective 

So when we’re talking about which is more effective between CBD coffee and CBD oil, what exactly do we mean?

We could define effective in all sorts of ways but for the sake of this article, let’s go ahead and say effective is how efficiently the product delivers CBD’s associated health benefits and whether or not the user experiences more or less of these benefits as a direct result of the way they are taking in their CBD.

Simple enough?

The key difference between CBD coffee & CBD oil

The main difference between the CBD in coffee and its oily counterpart is the type of CBD used. This is where all of the other differences between the two stem from.

We can only speak for ourselves, so that’s what we’ll do.

Our CBD coffee contains water soluble CBD as opposed to the thicker oil that is used in what most people would call ‘conventional CBD’. The main benefit of water soluble CBD is that it passes into the bloodstream quicker than the oil, meaning you’ll receive a much more immediate benefit than if you were to drop some oil underneath your tongue.

When pairing this with coffee, it can be extremely effective for people who love to work out or who really need an extra jolt in the morning. Because of CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties and the stimulating effect of coffee beans (especially our organic, ethically sourced ones!), using these in conjunction can be the perfect pick me up for people who want benefits on the fly.

Compare that to your bog standard oil and you can see where the differences in effectiveness begin to arise.

Now we’re not saying that CBD oil is the Devil here, let’s just be clear on that. It has been proven time and time again to be effective and has so many applications for pretty much everyone in the world.

But that’s all relative. In the same way a Ford is a great car, when compared to a Ferrari, one is probably going to be a bit more effective at getting you from 0-60… 

Ferrari car grill

Which should you go for?

Now that’s the big question.

Listen, whether you choose to go with CBD coffee or CBD oil, you’re still going to get some amazing benefits, so don’t think this decision is life and death.

But when it comes to effectiveness – the whole point of this article – you’re probably going to want to go with the CBD coffee.

Let’s go over a quick bullet-point list of why the beans beat the oil;

  • It’s more convenient. Using a coffee cup is far easier than carrying a giant bottle of oil around all day.
  • It is quicker absorbing thanks to the water soluble CBD. You’ll feel the benefits more readily.
  • It tastes better! Guzzling a cup of Joe is always going to be far more appealing than dropping oil under your tongue and holding it there for 2 minutes. This means you’re far more likely to stick with the habit and feel long term benefits. Effective.
  • There are more potential benefits. Coffee beans themselves are anti-inflammatory, offer a boost in energy and are packed full of antioxidants, meaning you’re actually getting a fuller profile of nutrients than if you were to just consume a pipette of oil. Again, the effectiveness of these combined superfoods outweighs the former CBD poster child!

It’s quite hard to argue against a mountain of evidence like that. As impartial as we’d like to be, the two simply just don’t compare.

And don’t worry if you’re screaming at the computer that you hate coffee!

We have CBD hot chocolate (also available in a vegan recipe), CBD syrups and we’re even coming out with all sorts of CBD edibles in the not-so-distant future. These all contain the water soluble CBD that makes our coffee so effective; no need to worry about sacrificing the health benefits. Winner!

And that is that folks.

You’ve been armed with the knowledge to take the next step on your CBD journey.

It’s quite the no-brainer (in our humble opinion), so if you want to get involved with CBD coffee, a hot chocolate or even our new edibles range – head over to the Calm Recovery website and get yourself some cracking CBD deals.

CBD’s Effects on Athletic Performance

Man on gymnastic rings

Did you know CBD can help improve your athletic performance?

So you may have heard how CBD is the answer to all your prayers and that taking it will make you more relaxed and less stressed about life.

Well luckily, this is true… Sort of.

CBD isn’t the answer to all your prayers, although it is a fascinating substance that is known to have calming effects, making people less stressed and anxious.

So how can the effects of this seemingly ‘relaxing’ substance really have a positive impact on athletic performance?  You might be surprised!

How can the effects of CBD benefit athletes? 

  1. Reduces pain

When it comes to risks in sport, inflammation is top of the list. In fact, it’s almost a guarantee. Any athlete pushing their muscles to their maximum limit will experience inflammation of the muscles and it can cause discomfort, causing them to miss out on their sporting goals.

CBD is known to have anti-inflammatory effects, and is linked to being a safer option compared to over the counter drugs such as Ibuprofen.

These manufactured anti-inflammatory drugs, when used excessively are linked with strokes, heart attacks and kidney damage.  CBD is a naturally occurring substance that comes from plants, making it a more holistic solution.

  1. Speeds up recovery

As well as inflammation, a rigorous training regime results in oxidative stress.  This can cause muscle and even organ damage if allowed to go unmanaged. If not managed properly, this can seriously harm recovery time for athletes.

New research is showing that CBD may have a positive effect on oxidative stress, helping athletes to recover faster and even preform better during competition.

  1. Reduces stress and anxiety

Athletes not only put huge amounts of stress on their bodies, but also their minds.  This stress can promote anxiety and even depression if allowed to go untreated.

Studies on CBD have linked it with helping reduce the effects of stress and anxiety.  These conditions can cause a dip in motivation, resulting in an athlete not reaching their true potential.

Top performing athletes have been on record time and time again, stating that to reach the top level of any sport you have to be mentally strong as well as physically.  CBD could give you that mental edge over the competition.

  1. Can promote weight loss

Relatively new research has indicated a link between fat loss and CBD.

The human body has two types of fat cells; White cells and brown cells.  White cells lead to weight gain as they promote excess fat storage.  These can be seen as “bad”.  Brown cells on the other hand, have the ability to burn calories.  People with more brown cells in their body have been shown to have a lower BMI (body mass index).

Studies show CBD having an increase on the browning of adipose tissue, turning white cells into brown cells.

It almost seems too good to be true!

How to get CBD into your routine

Okay, so you’re ready to start taking CBD but you don’t know how you can incorporate it into your daily life.  Luckily there are thousands of products out there that have CBD infused into them.

Take our CBD infused coffee for example.  Coffee is already part of so many people’s lives, especially athletes’! That caffeine-fuelled workout married with a dose of CBD could be the difference between reaching your personal best or missing a rep.

Don’t feel guilty with having to count those extra calories every time you want to add something sweet to your coffee. Our coffee syrups come in three delicious flavours and are also ZERO calories. Yep. ZERO calories!

We know that Coffee isn’t everyone’s cup of tea (pardon the pun…) but don’t worry because the wonder of CBD knows no limits.

We have our very own CBD infused hot chocolate (a vegan version is available too). Just think about it… after those of long dark nights after a gruelling training session, you can sit down to a nice hot cup of coco.  Or that long awaited cheat day that seems to go as soon as it comes around. The CBD hot chocolate has got it all covered.

We know that an athlete’s daily routine can be time-restricted with most of that time dedicated to mastering their craft.  That being said, here are a few other CBD products that can be adopted into virtually any routine seamlessly, by replacing regular products with the CBD version:

  • Edibles (coming soon to Calm Recovery)
  • Skincare (Moisturisers, oils and ointments)
  • Energy drinks
  • Gummies
  • Capsules

You should never leave any stone unturned when it comes to being at your absolute peak as an athlete.

Neglecting a substance as potentially beneficial as CBD may just be the reason you’re not reaching that next level.

We at Calm Recovery take pride in our CBD and want to promote this wonderful substance in the most positive way we can – by producing extremely high quality CBD infused products.
