The company even sells multivitamin liquids, pet vitamins, and a highly specialized line of topicals under its Nordic Cosmetics sub-brand.
We highly recommend this company if you live in Europe, but should look elsewhere is you’re in North America.
The North American shop only offers its basic CBD oil formula and the Mani oils with melatonin. Although these are excellent products themselves, they aren’t much different from what most of the other North American CBD brands are offering.
Nordic Oils is on a mission to become the world leader in CBD supplements and they’ve been doing a great job at achieving this goal. This brand is one of the largest and most widespread CBD companies in Europe, with operations in the US as well.
Nordic Oil doesn’t list any charities, or discount programs on their websites either — so it’s hard to give this company any kudos in this section.
Nordic Oil sources its hemp from farms around Europe. Although they don’t list a specific source for their hemp, they send every batch to an independent lab for testing to make sure the quality is as high as it can be.
We’ve reviewed the last dozen test reports listed on the company website, and reached out to the customer service team for more and couldn’t find any indication of issues with the hemp this company is using.
Nordic Oil has one of the most impressive product ranges we’ve seen yet — especially if you live in Europe.
The company offers just about every type of CBD product, in multiple different variations. They also sell some more innovative product types we have yet to see offered by other companies in the space — such as their pet supplements, or multivitamin CBD liquids.
This company gets 5 stars for innovation for a few reasons. First, the company offers every category of product you can imagine and has even taken a few of them to the next level — such as the new dedicated Nordic Cosmetics line.
Second, Nordic Oil is one of the only companies we’ve seen that offers its products and website in multiple different languages. This would have been a massive effort from the Nordic Oil team to accomplish and is something most other companies are simply just not doing.
Nordic Oil follows all the recommendations of European regulators (including the 0.2% THC limit), use organic ingredients whenever possible, and provide each product in reasonable doses of CBD as well as other herbal and nutritional ingredients.
Nordic Oil has a built-in chatbox on the company website in your local language. They service English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Norwegian, Swedish, Polish, Russian, Finnish, Dutch, and Danish — which is the most thorough language coverage we’ve seen to date.
The customer service reps at Nordic Oil are very helpful and are quick to respond — no issues in this department.
Nordic Oil is relatively new to the CBD space
— but has been working hard to expand its product line since they first
entered the market in early 2018.
The company offers online shops for a variety
of different countries around Europe and North America. At the moment, not all
products are available in each region, but as laws change around the world, we
expect this to change.
You’ll only have access to the full suite of
Nordic Oil products if you live in Europe — and there are a lot of options. The
company sells everything from simple CBD oils, to specialty topicals and
The full-spectrum oils and Mani Drops are the
only products currently available in the United States.
Nordic Oil CBD Products
Nordic Oil primarily operates in Europe. They offer dozens of high-quality CBD products on their online shop — which is available in several different languages and currencies.
The company also sells products in the United States, but only offers two products here at the moment.
CBD Oils are a staple in the CBD space. They offer precise dosing, have a very low relative cost, and are rapidly absorbed for fast onset of effects.
Nordic oil makes several different types of CBD oils — one specifically for the US market, an equivalent for the European market (smaller container), and one formulated with the painkilling and anti-inflammatory herb turmeric (highly recommend this one).
Nordic Oil offers an excellent full-spectrum CBD oil. It’s a classic formula consisting of a full-spectrum hemp extract dissolved in an MCT oil carrier. Though there’s really nothing special about this formula (it’s been done a million times), this is one of the better options as far as quality goes.
The oil tastes smooth, it has a top-notch flavor profile thanks to the preservation of hemp terpenes in the final product, and has the effects to back up the claims made on the bottle.
You can buy this oil in many different
strengths — but only 500 mg, 1500 mg, and 2500 mg options are available in the
United States. The rest are all available throughout Europe.
The strongest bottle (2500 mg per 30 mL) is
one of the strongest oils we’ve seen. It’s rare for companies to offer a
full-spectrum oil this potent.
Of course, the price is high as a result, but when you work out the cost spent for every milligram of CBD you get, it has excellent value at just 0.06 Euro per milligram.
The Mani Drops is Nordic Oils’ specialized sleep-supportive formula. It’s made with a low dose CBD (5 mg/mL) with added melatonin (2.5 mg/mL). This product is only available to US customers due to a ban on supplements containing melatonin in Europe.
Melatonin is a hormone produced naturally in
the human brain that conditions the body for sleep. It alternates through the
day in opposition to cortisol — the main stress hormone of the body. In the
evening cortisol levels naturally drop while melatonin rises — causing us
to feel tired.
Early in the morning as it comes time to wake
up, the balance shifts from melatonin to cortisol dominance.
Many people find taking melatonin supplements in the evening help condition the body for sleep.
This formula takes advantage of the sleep-supportive effects of melatonin in combination with the relaxing effects of CBD. We consider this oil to be one of the best CBD oils for sleep.
The maximum dose of melatonin is around 10 mg
per day, and many find lower doses of this supplement are even stronger than
the higher doses — so make sure to start with a low dose and increase gradually
over the course of a few days to find the dose that works for you.
We found the average effective dose of this
oil was about 2 mL (10 mg CBD, and 5 mg melatonin).
Curcumin has its own pain-killing,
anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant effects that complement those of CBD. The
only problem? Curcumin is poorly absorbed in the gut. The solution is to add a
compound that boosts the absorption of this compound, along with the CBD by
increasing the space between the cells in the gastrointestinal tract — this is
where the piperine comes in.
This product is well thought out and offers a
notably strong analgesic effect from our testing. It sells for a bit of a
premium thanks to these other ingredients, but it’s well worth it for the
potent synergy of the formula.
Nordic Oil has a sub-brand of CBD-infused
cosmetics called Nordic Cosmetics. All the products in this lineup have been
dermatologically tested, and contain relatively potent doses of CBD
— exactly what we like to see in a skincare lineup.
A) Nordic Cosmetics Facial Serum
— CBD & Hyaluronic Acid
This hand cream has a lightweight and silky texture. It feels great on dry skin but may need to be reapplied more than a thicker, waxier hand cream.
The CBD content is higher than we’ve seen in most other general-use hand creams as well — making it potentially useful for painful, irritated hands. The aloe vera does a great job of complementing the effects of the CBD and adds a subtle cooling effect.
This is a great hand cream to keep around,
especially if you live in colder climates where dry, cracked skin is
Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice
C) Nordic Cosmetics Anti-Aging
Face Cream — CBD & Retinol
Retinol is a popular ingredient for anti-aging products for its role in supporting the keratinocytes — which make up about 90% of the cells in the outer layer of skin. These cells are designed to take the impacts of the environment to protect the organs below. These skin cells take the brunt of the damage caused by everything from physical scuffs and abrasions, to UV damage.
The idea behind this face cream is that by supporting the health of keratinocytes and promoting the growth of juvenile keratinocytes, the skin remains strong and highly resistant to damage caused by the environment. The result is a more vibrant and youthful appearance.
The CBD is a great companion to retinol for
its perceived ability to support skin health, and reduce visible signs of
redness and inflammation.
Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil
D) Nordic Cosmetics Day Cream SPF
15 — CBD & Vitamin C
This product is designed to help reduce
visible puffiness and wrinkles under the eyes. The hyaluronic acid promotes the
regeneration of collagen in the skin — which serves as the scaffolding of the
skin. As collagen levels decline, the skin starts to sag under the weight of
Hydrolyzed Rice Protein
Tocopherol (Vitamin E)
Helianthus annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil
Glycine soy (Soy) Protein
G) Nordic Cosmetics Body Butter —
CBD & Avocado Oil
This cream is designed to rehydrate damaged,
cracked skin on the bottoms of the feet.
Camphor oil is mildly stimulating — causing
the blood vessels in the skin to dilate and allow more blood to flow into the
surface layers of skin on the feet. This region has notably poor blood flow,
leading to dryness and cracks in the skin.
The addition of CBD is excellent for a formula
like this to help reduce pain in the feet caused by cracked or irritated skin.
It’s also useful to limit pain and inflammation from blisters after a long day
This is an impressive CBD skin cream. It’s
formulated with over a dozen other active ingredients, each one complementing
the effects of CBD. Many of the ingredients in the Eir CBD Cream are
antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, or analgesic (pain-killing).
This is excellent for supporting general skin health, combating visible signs of aging, or supporting the recovery process in the skin after cuts, abrasions, or sunburns.
To make things even better, Nordic Oil chose
to use liposomal CBD for the creation of this product. This type of CBD extract
is believed to have a higher absorption rate in the skin — making the
effects of the CBD more efficient overall.
Unfortunately, Nordic Oil doesn’t actually
list the amount of CBD in the formula, we had to reach out to the company
directly to get this information.
This cream is very similar to the other two
creams the company offers above in this series. The difference with this
formula is that the base is primarily glycerine — which is better for sensitive
With that said, this hand cream includes some irritating
ingredients like alcohol and various acids.
The texture of this product is smooth and silky and has a gentle cooling effect on the skin. There are a ton of excellent ingredients in this formula designed to leverage the effects of liposomal CBD.
Unfortunately, the company isn’t transparent
about the CBD content of these hand creams. We had to reach out to the company
directly to get an answer, and there are no third-party tests available for
this product at the moment.
For a lip chap, this is one of the more
expensive options you’ll likely find. However, the formula this product uses is
exceptional. There are a ton of great ingredients in here — some we’ve never
seen in a lip care product yet.
The base is made from hemp seed oil, along
with other plant oils like sweet almond oil, castor bean oil, shea butter,
coconut oil, sunflower, and avocado oil. In addition to the CBD, this product
includes an herb called echinacea — which is a potent immunomodulator and
This product provides long-lasting protection
against dry or cold air, and speeds healing of damaged, cracked skin.
This product is well worth the price if dry
lips are a problem for you.

3. CBD Capsules
CBD capsules offer all the same benefits as a CBD oil but offers a little more convenience with regards to dosing. Instead of measuring out drops of CBD oil, you can just take a capsule or two for a standardized dose of CBD.
Nordic Oil CBD Capsules are only available in Europe. They contain the same CBD extract as their CBD oils, MCT oil included. The only difference is that the oil is encapsulated in a gel cap to make them more transportable.
Capsules and oils will have the same effect on
the body but come with their own sets of advantages and disadvantages. It’s
nice to see Nordic Oil offering both so their customers can choose which format
suits them best.
4. CBD Concentrates
CBD concentrates are made by removing all the phytochemicals from a hemp extract except the ones you want. Sometimes only the proteins, fibers, and plant cell structures are removed (CBD pastes and resins), other times the fatty acids and sugars are removed as well (waxes), and other times everything except the CBD itself is removed (CBD crystals).
We’ve also included CBG (cannabigerol) extracts in this section because they’re made through a similar process. The difference is that instead of CBD being the primary cannabinoid, the main ingredient is CBG.
These CBD pastes come in three different potencies — 30%, 40%, and 50% CBD. The CBD in the Nordic Oil CBD Pastes is mixed in with coconut oil and beeswax — giving it a thick consistency. They come in a 5 mL syringe-style dispenser to make it easier to use.
In order to use this paste, simply push the plunger on the syringe to empty some of the paste directly into the mouth. The company recommends that you leave it in the mouth for about a minute before swallowing to improve absorption and allow the CBD to enter the bloodstream faster by traveling across the vascular membrane underneath the tongue.
You can also use this paste directly on the
skin — perfect for spot treatment of damaged, or irritated skin.
This is a top-notch take on a CBD concentrate. We like the look of these syringes. They don’t feel cheap and have more of a casual appearance than the traditional medical syringe most other CBD companies are using.
Be cautious when using these pastes, they’re very potent.
These crystals are colorless, scentless, and
extremely high potency. Recommended for experienced users only.
At just under € 0.05 per mg, these crystals
are priced slightly higher than average. However, Nordic Oil has excellent
integrity when it comes to the quality of their hemp and extracts, which
justifies the price point.
Even at a higher than average price point,
these crystals remain one of the most cost-effective ways of buying CBD on the
CBG is short for cannabigerol — which is the precursor to both CBD and THC in the cannabis plant. It’s non-psychoactive like CBD, but has a slightly different effect profile.
Over the past year the interest in CBG
supplements is has started to gain a lot of attention after a series of
research on this cannabinoid was published — suggesting it as a useful
supplement for anxiety and stress.
This is the first time we’ve seen a company
offering an isolate of this cannabinoid and couldn’t resist ordering some for
ourselves. We found the effects to be slightly more weighted to the sedative side compared to CBD — making
it great as a nighttime supplement.
We expect to see more CBG supplements pop up
in the next 6 to 12 months as more people learn about this new and exciting
These e-liquids are pretty standard —
consisting of a blend of vegetable glycerin, propylene glycol, and THC-free CBD
What makes Nordic Oil e-liquids special isn’t the formula, as this formula can be found in virtually every other e-liquid on the market. What makes it special is the unique flavor options the company provides.
You can find these oils in the following flavors:
Lemon & Mint
Watermelon & mint
Blueberry & mint
Grape & mint
The potency of these E-liquids is a little
confusing. You can buy the isolate version in 5% unflavored or 3% in the
Just like the THC-free versions listed above, this Nordic Oil full-spectrum e-liquid combines a full-spectrum hemp extract, with vegetable glycerine and propylene glycol as the base.
The full-spectrum versions only come in
unflavored oils — leaving behind just the raw hemp flavor.
You can buy the full-spectrum e-liquids in
either 1%, or 3% potencies.
6. CBD-Infused Multivitamins
This is a very unique category of CBD products only offered by a select few companies. The idea is to provide a simple multivitamin, with added CBD for daily supplementation.
You can get multivitamins in all different formulas, from a daily health supplement for both men and women, to supplements specifically formulated for a subset of the population (such as men, women, children, or for supporting health conditions like joint pain or chronic inflammation).
Nordic Oil’s Liposomal Multivitamins are an interesting take on a daily wellness CBD supplement.
It’s chock full of essential vitamins, along
with a low dose CBD. We’ve never seen anything quite like this product. The
only downside is that the actual CBD content is quite low (3 mg per 5 mL
recommended dose). Due to the other ingredients in the formula, you can’t
simply take more if you want a higher dose of CBD — you’ll need to take any
additional CBD from an oil or capsule instead.
This liquid Vitamin C and CBD supplement is
designed to be used as a general health supplement. Vitamin C plays many
different roles in the body — from supporting liver health to immune function.
Mixing CBD with a Vitamin C supplement feels
random and disconnected, as the two supplements do separate things. We’re not
sure why this product exists, but if you frequently use both CBD and Vitamin C
supplements, this might be a good option to cut down on the number of
supplements you take each day.
mL dose delivers 3 mg of CBD, and 250 mg of Vitamin C.
This would be considered a low dose for CBD,
and standard dose of Vitamin C. Unfortunately, with a product like this you
can’t take more if you need a higher dose of CBD because it would mean taking
too much Vitamin C along with it — which can cause digestive system issues.
Realistically you’re better off taking a
Vitamin C supplement, and a separate CBD capsule or oil.
7. CBD Pet Products
CBD has a lot to offer our animal companions. Petowners are reaching fo a bottle of CBD oil to help manage separation anxiety, chronic fear and stress, depression, joint pain, digestive inflammation, and much more.
Nordic Oil’s CBD Oil for Dogs is essentially the same oil sold for humans, but in a lower potency to account for the smaller size of a dog. It also comes with a modified dropper bottle lid to make it easier to give the oil to your dog and clean the tip after use. This keeps the inside contents of the oil clean, and significantly reduces the chances of having the oil go rancid via contamination from your dog’s mouth.
Each bottle contains hemp extract (CBD),
Vitamin E (as a preservative), fish oil, olive oil, and some natural flavoring
specifically formulated for dogs.
The biggest problem we found with this oil was the small bottle size — with medium to large-sized dogs, the contents of the bottle aren’t going to last very long.
Everything else is exactly the same — including the special dropper tip made from an easy-to-clean material. If the dropper touches your cat’s mouth simply give it a wipe to keep it clean. This is actually a major advantage for this product and something we’ve yet to see in other CBD pet products.
C) Nordic Oil CBD Feed Supplement
Tablets For Dogs
This product is like a multivitamin for your dog — with the addition of CBD. This is an excellent daily vitamin to use with your pet to support optimal health as it’s chock-full of trace minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, and other micronutrients.
The CBD content of each tablet is 3.2 mg —
which is a good dose for small to medium-sized dogs.
Vitamins A, B1, B12, B2, B6, C, E,
D) Nordic Oil CBD Feed Supplement
Tablets For Cats
This is the same supplement as the dog
version, but with a smaller dose of CBD to account for the smaller size of a
cat. You also get about 45 extra tablets with this formulation compared to the

cats, especially if your animal lives with chronic pain, anxiety, or

What Does Nordic Oil Do Well?
1. Product Bundle Offers
Nordic Oil sells a ton of different products.
While the company isn’t overpriced, they aren’t the cheapest CBD products on
the market either.
In order to help their customers afford their products — especially if they use a lot of CBD on a daily basis — Nordic Oil offers product bundles with discounted rates. These are all buy two, get one free type offers to reward people for stocking up on their favorite products.
You can take advantage of the buy two, get one
free offer on the following products:
CBD Oil Drops (5%)
CBD Oil Drops (15%)
CBD Oil With Curcumin &
CBD Mani Drops
CBD Capsules (4%)
2. Excellent Product Range
Nordic Oil sells virtually every category of
CBD product, with a few extras not commonly available elsewhere.
They offer each product in a few different
variations as well — different potencies, flavors, or slight modifications to
the formulas (in the case of their topicals).
There’s just about something for everybody from Nordic Oil. The only category the company doesn’t offer that most others do is in the edible section — there are no CBD gummies or other edibles at this time from Nordic Oil.
3. Excellent Use of Herbs &
Nutrients in Some Formulas
One of our favorite things about this company is that they’ve embraced the use of herbal supplements in their products. Rather than only offering basic CBD oils, the company sells a variety of products formulated with a host of other herbs designed to complement the effects of the CBD for a particular application.
Nordic Oil also adds a lot of nutritional
ingredients to its products — such as melatonin in the mani drops, or their
Vitamin C and multivitamin liquids. Even the pet products come with a host of
trace minerals and vitamins.
Where Could Nordic Oil Improve?
1. American Customers Have Limited
Nordic Oil is an international company,
selling to most of Europe, as well as the United States.
However, only two products are currently
available within the United States — the Manu Drops, and a modified version of
the CBD Oil Drops.
None of the company’s other products are even listed on the dot com shop intended for US-based customers. So you’ll need to use a mail forwarding service like Skypax to get your products shipped if you live in the United States.
2. Not All Products List The CBD
Most of Nordic Oils products have a clear indication of the CBD content and ingredients list — with the exception of a couple of CBD topicals.
It’s important the amount of CBD is always listed on the bottle to avoid misleading customers. There are too many products on the market today listed as hemp extract that contains no measurable amount of active CBD. Even when there is CBD in the product, if it’s not explicitly listed on the bottle, the potency could be far lower than it should be to provide any real benefits.
While Nordic Oils products definitely contain
active CBD in acceptable potencies, we don’t like seeing any of its products
without this information explicitly listed on the bottle.
3. The Nordic Oil Topical Line
Consists of Very Similar Products
Nordic Oil has two lines of topicals
— the Nordic Oil-branded products (Eir, Valkyrie, Freyja, and Lip Care —
and the Nordic Cosmetics lineup (including the rest of the company’s topical
The Nordic Cosmedics line has a diverse range
of topicals with specific use-cases for each product. However, the Nordic Oil
topicals consist of three separate creams, without any clear distinction
between each version. The consistency of each is very similar, and the
ingredients are about 90% the same from one product to the next.
Ultimately we find this a negative because it
adds unnecessary confusion for the customer who’s not sure which product to go
with. And ultimately, anybody could use any of the three for the general
skincare application those products are designed for.
Safety & Third-Party Testing
All Nordic Oil products are third-party tested
by a company called Fundación Canna to confirm the claims for cannabinoid and
terpene profiles are accurate to what’s listed on the bottle. Everything Nordic
Oil sells remains within the 0.2% THC limit put in place by European
You can find the third-party test results on the product page. We assessed most of these and found the dates listed on the test were reasonably recent enough to confirm the company is keeping these links up to date for each new batch of product.
Unfortunately, only a small handful of these
tests included heavy metal, pesticides, microbial contaminants, and residual
solvent testing. All of which are just as important from a safety perspective.
The company states that all the hemp they use
to make these products are grown ethically, and without the overuse of
pesticides or other chemicals, and that the extraction is done without solvent,
Despite all of this, we’d still feel more
confident in Nordic Oil products if we could see up to date contamination
testing for all products.
You can get free standard shipping on orders over €38.99 or free express shipping on orders over € 99.99.
Nordic Oil is also available in the United States and South America by shopping at the dot com store — however, the products in this shop are very limited. Free shipping is available on all orders over $20, and free express shipping on orders over $50.
You can return any unopened Nordic Oil
products within 30 days after purchase.
Final Verdict: Highly Recommended
CBD Brand if You Live In Europe!
Nordic Oil is one of the best brands available in Europe. The company offers an incredibly wide range of products, covering all major categories aside from edibles or gummies.
The companies oils are all made from top-notch
hemp, and most of their supplement range, pet product range, and topical range
come formulated with additional synergistic ingredients to make the overall
effects of the product even better.
A few of the company’s product offerings are truly innovative as well — like their multivitamin CBD liquid or Vitamin C CBD liquids. The pet supplements and cosmetic lineup also offer products we’ve yet to see available from other companies in this space as well.
Overall we were impressed with Nordic Oils
products — but only for the European market. The US store is significantly
smaller, offering only the simple CBD oils, and the Mani oil with melatonin.
