Nordic Oil offers different CBD oils to its European and North American customers. The European oils have a much higher potency, and come in smaller bottles.
This review will look at the European CBD oil from Nordic Oil. Learn more about the American version of this CBD oil.
This CBD oil has some of the highest potencies we’ve seen in an oil and uses a high-quality full-spectrum extract.
At €0.08 – €0.10 per mg, this full-spectrum oil is slightly below the average cost for CBD tinctures. The price can be further reduced to €0.06 – €0.08 per mg by buying a 3-pack. All in all this is quite affordable but not as cheap as a few other high-quality competitor products.
The lowest potency option of Nordic Oil’s full-spectrum CBD oil is already quite high: 50 mg per mL. Better yet, the company has two even stronger options: 150 mg/mL and 200 mg/mL.
These potencies are much higher than average.
According to Nordic Oil, their hemp comes from non-GMO, organic farms in Europe. However, the company does not list the exact country or offer any proof of its organic claim, such as a certification document.
Furthermore, although Nordic does send its extracts to a third-party lab for potency testing, it does not list any tests for pesticides or other contaminants — which provide a further layer of safety and transparency.
Like most full-spectrum CBD oils, Nordic Oil’s tincture is intended as an all-purpose CBD product that can meet the needs of anyone interested in the CBD’s wide-ranging benefits.
Considering its high potency, full-spectrum formula, and lack of specialized ingredients, we think it satisfies this purpose but has room for improvement.
This oil comes in three main potencies in the basic formula, but the company also sells a variety of other formulas with curcumin, melatonin, or various other herbs. You can also find an insane amount of other product types on this company’s website to choose from.
Nordic Oil’s full-spectrum CBD oil contains the two ingredients we expect from an all-purpose tincture: whole-plant hemp extract and hemp seed oil as a carrier oil that helps your body absorb CBD.
CBD oil is quickly becoming a ubiquitous product. Indeed, the problem these days is not finding a CBD tincture, but choosing one that’s got a good balance between affordability and high-quality.
There are hundreds of brands and thousands of CBD oils available, so how do you know which ones are worth your money?
The best CBD oils use a full-spectrum hemp extract, offer multiple different potency options, come with extensive third-party testing to back them up, and offer good value for the money (less than $0.20 per milligram of CBD).
About the Company: Nordic
Founded in 2018, Nordic Oil is a relatively new European CBD brand. It offers CBD oils, capsules, topicals, concentrates, e-liquids, isolates, pet products, and even CBD-infused multivitamins.
The company claims to use an organic
European hemp source, CO2 extraction and provides third-party potency tests for
What’s most interesting about Nordic
Oil is that it offers different products to customers in different countries.
For now, European customers have wider access to the company’s products
compared to those in the Americas.
Nordic Oil’s full-spectrum CBD oil costs about €0.08 – €0.10 per mg of CBD, although the price may vary slightly for buyers in specific European countries. This price is considered the lower end of average for CBD oils.
Additionally, Nordic Oil offers a reduced price for purchasing a pack of 3 tinctures, which brings the cost down to €0.06 – €0.08 per mg.
Overall, this full-spectrum tincture
is quite affordable, especially when you buy the 3-pack.
This full-spectrum CBD oil is also one of the most potent tinctures we’ve come across. All three CBD strengths offered by the company are considered high: 50 mg, 150 mg, and 200 mg per mL.
Although most companies choose to
offer a low and medium potency option, we like the route taken by Nordic Oil.
People who need low CBD doses can simply take just a few drops of the 50 mg/mL
oil, whereas those with larger CBD requirements can take a few mL or more.
Cost Breakdown of Nordic Oil
Full-Spectrum CBD Oil (Europe):
Total CBD Content

Nordic Oil Full-Spectrum CBD Oil — 1500 mg (15%)
Nordic Oil Full-Spectrum CBD Oil — 2000 mg (20%)
Nordic Oil doesn’t provide a lot of
information about its hemp source. Although it claims to use organic, non-GMO
hemp grown in Europe, it doesn’t specify a country.
Furthermore, Nordic oil doesn’t list
any tests for pesticides and other contaminants for its hemp and resulting
extracts. This is certainly one area we’d like the company to improve in.
Like most full-spectrum CBD oils, this
tincture has a basic formula consisting of full-spectrum hemp extract dissolved
in a carrier oil that helps your body absorb CBD. These two ingredients are all
you need to reap the full benefits of CBD for a wide range of uses.
The only notable difference with Nordic Oil
is that the company uses hemp seed oil as a carrier instead of the far more
common and cheaper coconut MCT oil.
With no other ingredients added to the
formula to help guide the effects of CBD, we feel there’s room for improvement
in the formula of this CBD oil.

Final Verdict: A Solid
Full-Spectrum CBD Oil
full-spectrum CBD oil from Nordic Oil is one of the better tinctures available
If you’re in the market for a
straightforward European CBD oil without any bells and whistles that will get
the job done, Nordic is a great choice. This CBD oil has a reasonable price,
especially if you buy the 3-pack. Its also backed by third-party testing and
comes in three potent CBD strengths.
Having said that, it does have some
shortcomings. For starters, there are no flavored tincture options. More
importantly, we don’t know where the company sources the hemp from. This also
makes it more difficult to confirm claims of it being organic and non-GMO.
Furthermore, there are no third-party tests
for pesticides and other contaminants, which would go a long way towards
building trust with customers.
On the whole, however, we’re still fans of Nordic Oil’s full-spectrum CBD oil.
