The Wee Hemp Company is a small family-based business in Aberdeen city, Scotland, which deals with CBD products. They have won multiple awards, including the FSB Micro Business of the Year For Scotland, 2019 and the Elevator UK Award.
But does an award guarantee the quality and effectiveness of their products? To get an answer to this question, we decided to come up with a detailed review of the Wee Hemp Company, Aberdeen.
In the Wee Hemp Company review, we will take a look at the brand and its range of products to determine if they are worth trying out. Let’s take a look!
About The Brand
Before going on to the Wee Hemp Company review, let’s take a moment to know the story behind the founding of the company. The company is founded by a Scotland-based couple Calum and Rebecca (and their dog Mylo too!).
After battling numerous health issues, including Crohn’s Disease and Fibromyalgia, and undergoing 4 major operations, Rebecca found that the numerous prescriptions she was left with hardly showed any positive results in improving her health.
She decided to embrace a natural and holistic healing route instead, and the couple started their research. They stumbled upon CBD products, which greatly benefited her health and allowed her to lead the active lifestyle she has always wanted.
But during their search for the right CBD product, they realized that not all brands sold high-quality CBD, and many brands were making profits through selling a range of substandard CBD products.
The Wee Hemp Company was established as a result of their initiative towards making high-quality CBD products to be available in Scotland as well as other parts of the UK.
They source their hemp from Europe, where it is grown naturally without any pesticides and herbicides. They also claim to harvest according to the moon cycles to improve the bioavailability of the crop. Their official website mentions that they are members of the Scottish Hemp Association.
Besides, they also hold a certification from CannaPro, the trade association for businesses dealing with cannabis, CBD, and hemp in the UK. This adds to their credibility as a brand since a business has to pass through certain standards in order to get the certification.
The company claims to sell a handcrafted collection of CBD products specially formulated to provide health support and improve the Endocannabinoid system of the body. We took a look at their product range for writing the Wee Hemp Company review and were not disappointed with what we found!
A wide range of products is available for sale on their website, including CBD oils, CBD beverages, and CBD capsules. And anyone interested in knowing more about the effects and different uses of CBD can also check out their book – The CBD Bible, which they claim provides you with all the information you will need.
Their range of CBD oils consists of two products – a broad-spectrum CBD oil and a full-spectrum CBD oil.
The full-spectrum oil blends the high-quality CBD extracts in a base of hemp seed oil, retaining all the elements found naturally in the plant. The broad spectrum oil uses a more refined CBD extract and therefore is free from any THC content. It is blended in a base of MCT coconut oil to increase effectiveness.
Both the products are available in varying strengths of 3%, 5%, and 10% respectively to suit everyone’s needs.
The CBD capsules by the brand are part of their ‘Wholotropic’ range and claim to be crafted to help you feel ‘whole’.
The capsules combine broad-spectrum CBD extracts (containing added terpenes and flavonoids) with black pepper, turmeric, and ginger, which are known for their far-reaching health benefits. Each capsule contains around 25 mg of CBD extracts.
The product is available in a 30-capsule bottle, as well as a 7-capsule sample pouch.
We really liked the beverage range by the Wee Hemp Company. If you love coffee, you will be delighted with their CBD Infused Luxurious Colombian Coffee. The medium-roasted single-origin coffee is infused with full-spectrum organic hemp CBD extracts. Buyers can choose their preferred option from whole-bean or perfectly ground coffee. Each packet contains around 100 mg of CBD.
Tea lovers can be at ease, too, as they get 3 different variants to choose from. Their Chamomile tea has calming and relaxing properties and claims to induce better sleep. The Crimson & Hibiscus Berry blended tea has a high antioxidant content and has anti-inflammatory and immunity-boosting properties. The Turmeric & Ginger Herbal Blend Tea claims to be specifically designed to boost and support the immunity system.
The products consist of 12 pyramid teabags respectively, each of which contains around 3.4 mg of broad-spectrum CBD extracts. You can also choose to go for a bundle pack containing all the 3 variants at a slightly lower rate.
CBD Hot Sauce
Yes, you read that right! This was perhaps the most interesting item that we came across among their products. The Wee Hottie is an innovative infusion of Canna’B Rum CBD with a spicy and tangy hot sauce. This is perfect as an accompaniment with different snacks and finger foods.
The sauce seems to be a ‘hot’ favourite among customers, as we could determine from the reviews on the page. We would love to try this out, as it’s rare to come across something so innovative in the CBD industry.
Social Media Sentiment
To get a better idea of the efficiency of their products as well as their customer service, we checked out the Trustpilot platform, which is our favourite in determining customer satisfaction with any brand. Unfortunately, we were unable to find any reviews of the company on Trustpilot.
While this was a bit disappointing, it doesn’t mean that the company isn’t worth trying. Perhaps they need to amp up their sales a bit before customers start posting the Wee Hemp Company reviews on Trustpilot. Their official website has some customer reviews that talk positively about the products, but we think it won’t be fair to judge the brand based on only those.
As a result, we are unable to make an unbiased judgment on their customer service or products at the moment, although we feel from their website that they do know what they are doing.
We hope the Wee Hemp Company review was useful if you had been thinking of trying out the products of the brand. While the lack of customer reviews (except on their own website) creates a sort of dilemma, the highly detailed product descriptions give us a feeling of authenticity.
Overall, we would recommend giving the brand a try, especially due to their innovative range of products!
