The main thing you need to do is to make sure you have all the necessary licenses and permits to be able to sell internationally, it differs from place to place but there are many people that you can visit to make sure you are going in the right direction, for example, the Small Business Association.
You need to have a trusted, licensed, and tested supplier (If you are not supplying your own product), as you need to know for sure the amount of THC in the product does not push over the legal limit of 0.2%. This is important as big suppliers will have third-party testing so you know the products you are selling are legitimate and fit all of the EU laws Much like in the US there are different rules throughout, wherein the Netherlands CBD is classed as a soft drug, and in Italy, it is classed as a novel food. It’s important to keep up to date with every country that you may be shipping to, as laws and regulations to do with the wholesale of CBD products are constantly changing.
The Wholesale CBD market in the EU really is stepping up, with more advanced products coming out every month. The want for CBD flowers has started to fade, and people want things like CBD Isolate and other various balms and skincare products.
