Why Should You Buy CBD Coffee Syrup From Calm Recovery?

cbd coffee syrup

CBD Syrup could easily become the 8th Wonder of the World (without insulting the Pyramids or the Hanging Gardens of Babylon). Calm Recovery’s CBD Coffee Syrup is safe, sweet and super delicious. Another ‘S’ for you – it really helps you sleep, along with the other benefits of our CBD products in the UK.

CBD Syrup has had a huge ascent in the UK over the last couple of years, and continues to rise in popularity. But not all CBD Syrups work the same way, and certainly don’t have the same composition or flavour as our premium product.

Researched and worked on over a period of time, this has guaranteed that our product meets every possible criteria. If you buy CBD syrup from Calm Recovery, you are assured of the best and most satisfying addition for your tastebuds, your body and mind and a bonus of three different flavours!

How does CBD Syrup work?

The answer is, the same as all of our other CBD products, it’s just sweeter (other than our delicious cookies)! Our full spectrum CBD offerings will not fail to please and help in any of your common health problems, such as anxiety, depression, sleeplessness, muscular skeletal pain, inflammation – the list is endless, but we don’t make claims as to its effectiveness in terms of serious illnesses. But the proof of the pudding is in the eating – or the drinking in this case.

Delicious dishes with CBD Syrup

How you take CBD Coffee Syrup is up to you. Some people will simply take a teaspoon a few times a day, and others will put it into drinks, desserts and other dishes when you want that hint of sweetness. You can even make chocolate truffles with it, trust us! What better birthday or Christmas present could there be than a box of coffee/chocolate fondants, lovingly prepared by you. You could also make a delicious sponge cake or muffins to have with your coffee or hot chocolate, or chocolate and coffee mousse for dessert. Get creative!

As our syrup comes in three different flavours – Brown Sugar Cinnamon, Hazelnut and Vanilla, they would all make an amazing box of chocolates or any sweet delight that takes your fancy.

Why choose Calm Recovery CBD Coffee Syrup?

Most people will immediately think that syrup will contain ‘lots of sugar’. Not so, as our syrup is made with Sucralose, a sugar substitute, considered to be one of the safest on the sweetener market. Furthermore, those calorie counting will be pleased to know that our syrup is non-calorific, yet another benefit to your health and wellbeing.

The CBD that we use is water soluble which makes it extremely bioavailable. Bioavailability means that from mouth to intestines and into the circulatory system is fast and efficient, ensuring that the calming effects of the product happens quickly and the results are longer lasting.

Most importantly, our syrup really does taste good, and takes away the guilt of putting two teaspoons of refined sugar in your coffee or other drinks! We have even heard of customers drizzling some over an ice cream, or their morning yoghurt with fruit!

What is the recommended dosage of CBD Syrup?

Everyone’s body reacts differently, so to a certain extent you have to find your own level. It also depends on your symptoms or illnesses, and other factors such as weight and frame. We would recommend that you start with a low dosage and see how you react. You can then increase, or decrease, until you reach a level that you are comfortable with, and that works for you. It’s really no different to taking any medication or supplements, it’s the same principle – let it work for you. We recommend 3-5mg per serving as a starting point.

If you are on any form of medication already, or have a pre-existing condition that your GP is currently treating, there is no reason not to talk to him/her before trying Calm Recovery CBD Syrup. Most doctors are realistic enough to know that research shows that CBD products can work effectively. The average fit and healthy person is normally in the 10-50mg dosage category per day, but do heed our advice on starting slowly and building up to what suits you.

Please also remember that there are no harmful chemicals or synthetic drugs in Calm Recovery CBD products, unlike pharmaceuticals used to treat medical conditions.

Whilst our products are made using high grade CBD, do store in a cool, dark and dry place to prevent any degradation.

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.

Do CBD Edibles Taste Bad?

Everything you need to know about edible CBD products

When you hear CBD your mind probably goes straight to oils and whilst CBD oil is definitely one of the most common ways to incorporate CBD into your lifestyle, it’s certainly not the only one. Coffee and edibles are 2 great alternatives to oil for those who want to reap some of the many benefits of CBD.

 What are CBD edibles and what do they taste like?

CBD edibles are becoming more and more popular as people search for the right CBD product for them. After all, who can resist a cookie or sweet? CBD edibles come in various forms meaning you’re bound to find the perfect one for you. Options such as cakes and muffins are perfect for a post-dinner treat meanwhile biscuits and cookies are the ideal afternoon snack. CBD sweets and gummies are great options if you’re on the go but still keen to incorporate CBD into your daily life meaning there’s no excuse, no matter how busy you are.

Sweet CBD treats are the perfect way of adding CBD into your routine without having to adjust your taste-buds to the slightly ‘grassy’ taste of CBD oil. Many people say CBD can taste a little like grass or earth, which is probably not your flavour of choice when it comes to an afternoon snack. While some people actively like the taste or can at least adjust to it, others who are keen to use CBD prefer to find an option that helps to mask the taste. And that’s where edibles come in. Edibles offer all the good stuff of CBD oil but in a way that’s easier to digest.

Benefits of CBD edibles

Some of the benefits of CBD include pain relief, mood improvement and better sleep so it’s no surprise that people are keen to try CBD for themselves. For many people though, the thought of using a CBD oil every day can be a little daunting which is why edibles are a great option, especially for those just starting out on their CBD journey. Edibles are a great way of adding CBD into a busy lifestyle. If you’re already snacking throughout the day then switching one of them up for a CBD alternative will make little impact to your waistline and pocket but could have major impacts on everything from your mood to your sleep pattern.

Normally, edible CBD products can take a little longer to fully ‘kick in’ meaning it may take longer for you to see an effect than if you were using an oil. However, at Calm Recovery, we use water soluble CBD in our edibles. This means that the CBD is absorbed much quicker than conventional oils.

This is all thanks to the CBD we use being ground to the size of nano particles, making it much easier for your body to handle and increasing your chances of absorbing 100% of it.

Not to mention, our water soluble CBD is completely tasteless unlike other forms of CBD, meaning it has zero impact on the overall taste of the edibles (or our coffee!).

Another perk of choosing CBD edibles is that they’re more discreet than other options such as oil. It’s unlikely that people will give you a second glance if you start digging into a cookie or some sweets on your commute home however if you start dropping CBD oil under your tongue then you might get some funny looks. CBD edibles slot perfectly into everyday life  meaning you won’t need to make any lifestyle changes if you want to start using them.

Where can you get CBD edibles?

Whilst CBD can be woody or nutty and people often have to wash it down with water once they’ve taken it, CBD edibles can be consumed just the same as you would consume their non-CBD counterparts. CBD edibles are also a great option to pair with a CBD coffee or CBD hot chocolate. We’re all partial to a coffee and cake every now and then so why not make your regular treat a little less naughty by swapping to CBD versions? Nothing compliments a biscuit better than a hot drink and you can find our full range of CBD infused hot drinks on the shop section of the site.

We’ll soon be launching a range of CBD edible products including cookies (Calm Cookies), brownies and chocolate meaning you can get your sugar fix as well as your dose of CBD. Our edibles taste exactly how you’d imagine cookies or brownies to taste (great!) but they also come with a stream of CBD benefits making them the perfect choice for an afternoon snack or post-dinner treat.

What Payment Gateway Merchants will process payments for CBD products? 

Prior to starting Calm Coffee Company, I admit I was completely unaware that in the future, I would be writing a post about CBD payment gateway merchants. But here I am! This is a post to support other new businesses in their understanding of these merchants. So don’t be disheartened when faced with a hurdle in the final stages prior to launch, we can help!

I’m sure most readers, like myself, have purchased something from an online business in the past? Thought so! In fact, you have more than likely purchased something in the last week! Why is this? Because the payment methods are often very quick and easy to set up. Many of these businesses will use PayPal or Stripe for their transactions. I know I am personally finding the option of PayPal more and more frequently on websites! When it comes to the selling of CBD however, unfortunately it doesn’t come as easily as these other businesses have it.

This is because CBD is classified as ‘high risk’ in the eyes of the merchant accounts. Now this doesn’t mean the product is dangerous in itself, but it leads to a reduction in the available merchants willing to process your payments as a result of the alleged risk. I’ll explain the definition of this ‘high risk’ below, but remaining with the merchants, they then complete thorough background checks on the businesses themselves to make their own assessment on their credibility. Businesses selling any products that are seen to borderline illegality, or those who are susceptible to chargebacks on credit cards, may also be deemed as a ‘high risk’.

The terminology of being ‘high risk’ is simply due to the fact that CBD is a relatively new product to market. CBD was only provided its 100% legal status in the UK in 2019! The marketing of CBD has exploded over the past year and it’s hard not to notice its presence in the high-street shops. Despite this, there remains a lot of uncertainty around it, most likely because of the obvious association with the controlled substance, Cannabis.

CBD, also known as Cannabidiol, is derived from the Cannabis plant. However, it does not contain the THC content. THC is what’s associated with the psychoactive effect of the controlled substance. Despite this, because CBD is produced from the Cannabis plant, many merchants and processors will not support anyone who chooses to sell CBD. The Cannabis plant itself remains prohibited, which leaves banks uncertain, and therefore unwilling, to take the risk by associating with the product.

I have mentioned the explosion of CBD in the shops over the past year, but when it comes to purchasing it online, there are many restrictions faced by the sellers of CBD. Our well-known internet shopping sites like Amazon and Ebay both refuse the selling of CBD, and advertising through the social media platforms of Instagram and Facebook is banned. Somehow, I think this makes its escalation in popularity all the more impressive!

So, we know that many merchants are weary of the high-risk products. But all is not lost! There are some specialised high-risk merchant accounts, located all around the world, who are willing to support businesses selling the high-risk products, such as CBD. The merchants for CBD payment gateways will still complete a number of checks of the business prior to offering their services. However, these high-risk payment gateway merchants unfortunately come at a price in respect of their high set up fees, higher refund fees and higher payment processing fees.

At Calm Coffee Company, we unfortunately have had to learn the hard way in understanding the complexities around payment gateway merchants. We know first-hand the frustrations faced by new companies who have everything ready to go, then seem to stumble at the last hurdle of processing payments! We hope by sharing out knowledge, we can help others avoid the unnecessary headaches of payments – following what has probably been an uphill struggle to launch whatever your product! To support our wholesale customers in getting up and running without delay and complication, we have partnered with We Tranxact.

We Tranxact

Because we work as a partnership, we have access to exclusive rates available to all of our wholesale customers. Some rates are below 2% with no setup fee, which is an absolute steal compared to other payment gateway merchants.

If you are looking for a CBD wholesaler, or want to start your own CBD brand with a white label service, we would love to be of assistance. We can support you from concept to creation! We have our own in-house website designer, graphic designer and marketer. We are also partnered with only the best suppliers to create high-quality products.
