Endoca was founded by a prominent European biochemist. As you might expect from a company with a biochemist at the head, Endoca offers some of the most innovative products we’ve seen yet, and a robust third-party testing process to provide ultimate transparency for the company’s many products.
This company offers a bit of everything — from standard CBD tinctures to raw, unprocessed and non-decarboxylated oils, capsules, and concentrates. Endoca even sells some of the more obscure product types like suppositories and 99.9% pure CBD crystals.
We suggest you give Endoca a look if you’re in the market for high-end CBD products. If you’re after something cheap, we recommend looking elsewhere, however. Endoca products aren’t overpriced, in fact, we found them to have excellent value — however, they’re far from the cheapest CBD supplements you’ll find as well.
Mission / Charity5/5
Endoca has set up its own non-profit umbrella organization to manage its charitable contributions. They report that the funds are used to donate to grassroots movements that embody their mission and embrace principles like education, sustainability, and well-rounded lifestyles.
This goes above and beyond what most companies in this space are doing.
Endoca doesn’t offer much information on where they source their hemp, or what the quality is like. They mention “organic” several times on their website but never specifically relating to their hemp source.
Although we can’t confirm the organic status of the hemp Endoca is using to make its products — they do provide heavy metal and biological testing to prove its products are free from common contaminants.
Endoca’s product range caters to a wide range of customers’ needs. They manufacture oils, suppositories, tinctures, edibles, and skincare CBD products. The options available are intelligently designed to be as simple as possible, while still offering customizable product options for each individual, and maintains their innovative RAW CBD product options.
Endoca is one of the few companies offering both raw and activated cannabis products.
The company also makes other niche product types like suppositories, chewing gum, and CBD-infused vitamin and protein powders.
The company provides extensive third-party testing on all its products. They offer cannabinoid profiles, terpene profiles, heavy metal testing, and microbial testing to prove the products are clean and provide the same dose of CBD they advertise on the bottle.
We had a few interactions with Endoca’s customer service team while writing this review — and we have nothing negative to say about them. They were all professional, responded quickly, and provided thorough answers to all our questions.
Despite being located in Europe, Endoca will still offer free shipping on orders to the US if the value is over $74 in total. The company will ship worldwide for a reasonable cost.
Endoca is named after the endocannabinoidsystem — which is a series of chemical messengers and receptors tasked with regulating an array of processes in the human body.
The Danish-based company was founded by Henry Vincenty, who had studied biotechnology and genetics before travelling the world in pursuit of organic medicines. This path eventually lead him to cannabis and immediately became fascinated.
A few years later, Vincenty and a few members of his family began extracting their own CBD from hemp — leading to the formation of the Endoca company as we know it.
Endoca offers many different products — a few of which you’re unlikely to find from any other company. Let’s cover each product the company sells in more detail.
Every CBD company has a generic CBD oil — and Endoca is no different. The oil is made from a hemp seed oil base and a broad-spectrum hemp extract. Unlike most other companies, Endoca offers this oil in two forms:
Raw, uncooked, non-decarboxylated — this extract has a higher ratio of CBDa, and hemp-derived terpenes
Cooked, decarboxylated — this is the standard form of CBD oil that has undergone heat treatment to remove the acid group from the CBD molecule (producing CBD).
The difference in effects from these two different bottles is very subtle, but the raw form definitely had a better aroma to it — suggesting the terpene levels in this particular product is higher than average. This makes a lot of sense when you consider the fact that terpenes and other phytochemicals will break down when exposed to heat — which is a standard process in the making of CBD oils in order to convert CBDa to CBD.
Endoca offers both the raw CBD oil and regular CBD oil in either a medium potency (30 mg/mL) or strong potency (150 mg/mL).
Endoca’s Hemp Whipped Body Butter is made with 15 mg of CBD per mL, along with additional ingredients such as shea butter, palm oil, cocoa seed butter, hemp seed oil, coconut oil, vanilla, beeswax, vitamin E, and root starch.
This product is a great all-around moisturizer for dry, irritated, or inflamed skin.
Endoca offers three CBD extracts with a similar spin to its CBD oils and CBD capsules. You can find these concentrates as either a raw extract (containing CBDa and CBD) or the regular CBD extract you can expect to find elsewhere (with purely CBD).
The raw CBD extract comes in 2000 mg and 3000 mg options, while the regular version comes in just a 2000 mg option. All of these products come in 10 g syringes with clearly marked lines on the syringe to help you measure out accurate doses.
Overall these products are some of the best CBD concentrates we’ve seen coming out of Europe at the moment. We love the ability to choose between the raw extract or processed CBD. We’ve found the raw version has the greatest aroma and flavor by far for a CBD concentrate of this type.
Endoca’s Cannabis Crystals have 99.9% purity and contain 500 mg of CBD per container.
This product is guaranteed to be a THC-free pure CBD isolate. It’s a great option for anybody who needs a high dose and prefers CBD products made from isolates (as opposed to full-spectrum extracts).
The price comes at the company’s standard € 0.09 per mg of CBD — which is very affordable, but certainly not the cheapest source of CBD crystals you can find. Usually, this type of product has the lowest cost per mg to make up for the absence of other ingredients. It’s just pure CBD — nothing else.
Endoca offers this excellent CBD suppository option for a good price. Most CBD companies are charging a premium for this specialty product but Endoca has chosen to maintain their average € 0.09 per mg of CBD pricing for this niche product.
These suppositories are GMP certified, come in attractive packaging, and delivers a decent dose of 50 mg CBD per suppository.

What Does Endoca Do Well?
Both CBDa & CBD Products
Endoca is one fo the only companies in the world currently producing raw (non-decarboxylated) products on top of the standard decarboxylated options.
Now, what does decarboxylated mean?
Decarboxylation is the process of creating the “active” compounds found in cannabis. It’s a process that converts cannabinoid acids (CBDa, THCa, and THCVa, for example), into their non-acid forms (CBD, THC, and THCV).
This can be done through the addition of heat.
Some ways to decarboxylate cannabis are as follows:
Endoca decarboxylates their oil by gently heating it until all of the “inactive” CBDa (cannabidiolic acid) compounds turn into “active” CBD (cannabidiol).
In the most basic terms, activation of cannabinoids works by “tearing off” the acid group. This changes the chemical structure and effect profile of the plant.
What’s the difference between CBD and CBDA (CBD acid)?
When the actual cannabis plant is growing, its body produces CBDa and THCa. They’re both considered “inactive” compounds because they’re non-psychoactive. However, these cannabinoid-acids offer a whole lot of health benefits just like the non-acid forms.
The benefits of not decarboxylating CBD and keeping it in the CBDa form means the whole extract isn’t exposed to heat — which breaks down the other beneficial compounds in the hemp plant like the terpenes or phytosterols. So in essence, offering raw CBD products means you’re getting virtually the same benefit from the CBD, with the bonus of preserving many of the other active ingredients like terpenes and other phytochemicals.
How To Choose Between Raw And Activated CBD
If your goal is to use CBD for stress/anxiety or insomnia, most people prefer the raw oil. A lot of really great plant compounds, such as chlorophyll, other cannabinoid compounds, and the hundreds of varieties of terpenes, are lost during the heating process of the oil that can be used to support the sedative and anti-anxiety effects of the extract.
People looking to use CBD oil for pain usually go for the heated (decarboxylated) oilinstead. Since these symptoms are more intense, you’ll want the full benefits of the CBD. Endoca has fully converted all of the CBDa compounds into CBD in their decarboxylated oil — in theory giving it a higher bioavailability. It’s also thought that decarboxylated oils are slightly stronger for the painkilling benefits of the compound due to the way it interacts with the opioid and vanilloid pain receptors.
2. Endoca CBD Is Environmentally Friendly
Endoca was even given an award by the UN for its efficient use of resources and clean production practices! It’s one of the only companies we’ve found making a solid effort to reduce its impact on the environment.
Although there isn’t much more information available from the company about what measures its taking to achieve this, the company is already far ahead of the industry standard in this regard.
As soon as you get on the website, you see links to help you to make the best decision regarding your purchase — and if your question isn’t answered by their articles, they also have help chat, emails, and phone numbers available.
Some companies will try to hide their contact details and helpline, so it’s great to see one that’s so open and transparent about their products.
There’s even a feature called a CBD calculator. They explain that the CBD industry isn’t standardized, so they provide a way for people to make sure they’re not getting overcharged by other companies. You just type in the amount of product (oz or mL), the total mg of CBD, and the price of the products.
And finally, Endoca is one of the few companies that list the corporate founders on the public website. There are so many other companies in this space that don’t list any of this information. It’s much easier to trust a company with a face.
Safety & Third-Party Testing
Henry Vincent, the founder of Endoca, has a background in both biotechnology and chemistry. He’s also extremely passionate about helping people and making sure that they can access the best medication for their needs.
His great-grandparents also supplied seeds to farmers back in the day — before the UN banned it!
Anyway, this company knows what they’re doing and have gone to great lengths to make sure that their oils are perfect. They participate in third-party lab testing to make sure the product is clear of heavy metals, microbial organisms, and pesticides.
This consistent monitoring from seed to plant to extract also allows Endoca to guarantee their CBD percentage in each product — they even post the test results online for anyone to see, as well as a number you can call to talk to the lab technician.
This company sources its hemp from Denmark — a country with great soil nutrients and low soil contamination. In contrast, many other brands import seeds from China or leftovers from the hemp fiber industry.
Final Verdict: A Forward-Thinking & Unique European CBD Brand
Endoca is a formidable CBD manufacturer — placing a strong emphasis on the quality of its products.
This is one of the only companies we’ve seen that offers non-decarboxylated (raw) hemp extracts. This isn’t a major deal breaker as regular CBD oil works just fine, but it’s unique nonetheless.
And to be honest, the untreated oils and concentrates from this company have a truly amazing flavor profile — likely the result of the raw nature of the preparation. Without being exposed to heat the extracts maintain more of the original phytochemicals from the hemp plant.
This is an excellent company to choose no matter where in the world you live in. Endoca will ship free of charge to Europe, and free to the US if you order more than $74 worth of product. Outside these regions, you’ll have to pay additional shipping — but believe us when we say this brand is worth it.
