JM Distro makes sure that all CBD suppliers listed on the website are third party lab testing their products.
CBD Testing Process
CBD goes through 6 tests during third party lab testing. After these tests, the manufacturer will receive a Certificate of Analysis. The certificate should list the following:
The quantities of cannabinoids in the sample. This includes THC. Cannabis plants have many different cannabinoids, with CBD being one of them - and your lab report should show which ones are present and in which quantities.
The terpenes in the product. Terpenes are found in plants and can change the taste and smell of the product. Some people also use terpenes for medicinal purposes. There will be more terpenes in broad spectrum CBD because it includes more of the cannabis plant.
Any pesticides present in the sample. This is an important test for safety, to check that the product is fit for human consumption and is free from the pesticides that might have seeped in during the farming process.
Any organic solvents, such as ethanol or propane. These chemicals are sometimes used as part of the extraction process, so can get into the CBD product.
The presence of heavy metals. Another important feature for ensuring that the CBD is fit for human consumption. The lab test will look for metals like mercury, which can be poisonous to humans, as well as nickel and arsenic.
The presence of any other impurities. Things like fungus and mildew can make its way into the CBD via water during the cultivation process. They can be very harmful to humans. The lab testing makes sure these are not in the CBD.
We know that your customers matter, and that it’s important they receive only the best quality products. Third party lab testing ensures everyone stays safe, and knows exactly what they are buying from you. It also enhances your reputation as a CBD seller.
An Overview of Stocking CBD Disposables
CBD disposable vape kits are increasingly popular. Before you stock up on these, it’s important to know the following information.
CBD disposables come in different strengths, and the ‘dose’ of CBD per puff is also influenced by the puff count. For example, if the disposable has 600 puffs and 300mg of CBD, the CBD per puff would be approximately 0.5mg. 10 puffs would be 5mg. And taking 10 puffs 3 times a day would be a daily intake of 15mg. It’s good to get a variety of puff counts and strengths so that your customers can choose how much CBD they intake on a daily basis.
CBD disposables come in a range of flavors, including strawberry kush, mango, banana and birthday cake. However it’s good to note that the CBD can alter the way these flavors are experienced. There may be an earthier tone to them than their 0mg vape juice counterparts.
Terpene infused CBD disposables taste very different to those without terpene profiles. Terpenes taste a bit like rosemary and thyme - strong, earthy tastes. Some people like them, some don't.
CBD disposables do not contain any nicotine. They are similar to 0mg nicotine disposables but with CBD added.
CBD disposables do not need any maintenance and can be given to the customer without any additional products.
An Overview of Stocking CBD Skincare Topicals
CBD skin care is also a growing market. You can now buy thousands of CBD skincare products to help solve issues like acne, itchy scalp, dandruff and dry skin.
When stocking CBD skincare, you might want to stock up on the staples first, and add in a few exciting niche products too.
For example, you might want to have an ongoing supply of:
- CBD moisturizer
- CBD lip balm
- CBD shampoo
- CBD body lotion
- CBD hand lotion
- CBD face scrub
You can also add in some more niche products like
- CBD tattoo cream
- CBD beard oil
- CBD bath bombs
If your customers want to read any research on CBD and skincare, we recommend the following studies:

An Overview of Stocking CBD Foods
CBD foods are a growing market and one that certainly should not be overlooked if you are considering selling CBD wholesale.
CBD foods can include (but are not limited to):
- Chocolate bars
- Snack bars
- Fizzy drinks
- Nut butter
- Dried fruit
CBD gummies are one of the most popular methods for ingesting CBD. They're delicious, convenient, easy to store, and easy to manage dosing.
When stocking CBD food make sure you get a good variety but focus on the most popular products, such as gummies, drinks and chocolate. Also remember that CBD food can contain CBD isolate or broad spectrum CBD. Broad spectrum CBD can alter the taste of the food slightly but does allow the consumer to experience the entourage effect of all the different cannabinoids working together.
CBD food is safe and legal to sell when you buy wholesale from JM Distro.
You can also give your customers recipe ideas and ways to use the CBD foods in meals. Keep an eye on our blog for food and recipe ideas.
About Stocking CBG
CBG has been hailed the ‘next big thing’ when it comes to the cannabinoid market. CBG is another cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant but potentially has even more health benefits than CBD. Like CBD, it is still being tested and the findings are promising and exciting. It has shown to be effective in the treatment of both physical and mental health problems in adults.
JM Distro allows your store to become the market leader in the latest CBG products. Much like CBD, CBG can come in a range of forms including capsules, vapes, foods, sprays and creams. By stocking up on CBG, you can offer your CBD customers something new and different, and see if CBG helps them with their wellness even more so than CBD.
CBD And Pets
Some people have started giving their pets CBD to ease tension, help with long haul flights, help with transitions and anxiety. CBD can also be given to pets who are suffering from pain and other illnesses.
At JM Distro, we stock a range of CBD products specifically for pets, that are easy to administer and suited to most animals. Customers should be aware that it’s wise to tell a vet if they are giving their pet CBD. CBD is considered safe for animal use, however, CBD for pets should not be consumed by humans due to the other ingredients that might be present.
