Over the recent years CBD has quickly gained credibility among medical professionals, sports professionals and consumers alike as a herbal extract with immense healing qualities if applied correctly.
According to Bridge Market Research data, the European cannabidiol (CBD) market is booming. The growth is occurring across major European sectors; incl. dietary supplements, nutraceuticals, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and even food & beverage.
CBD’s increasingly recognised medicinal benefits (NCBI CBD Study) have led to the growing presence of many CBD-infused products in the health and wellness space in recent years. As CBD products proliferate across product categories, CBD and other non-psychoactive cannabinoids (incl. CBN, CBG to name a few) gain legitimacy among herbal supplements that are already mainstream.
The evolution of CBD use leads to combining it with vitamins and herbal supplements into specialized formulas is becoming a revolutionary development that brings CBD & everyday dietary supplements into the same fold of consumer products and naturally so. While CBD oil itself is already a potent substance, formulas that combine with other complementary herbal bioingredients will undoubtedly spread it’s popularity & legitimacy further.
CBD has arrived in Europe’s Mainstream Supplements Sector
As CBD moves from niche to mainstream, consumer groups segments from both daily supplements and those seeking CBD products are already overlapping.
As consumers turn to natural methods instead of traditional medicine, businesses gain traction and capitalize on their ROI by promoting more complex formulations of CBD oil formulas mixed with vitamins and dietary supplements. With that in mind, a product line of pure supplement and herbal ingredients and bioingredients derived from a reputable source is imperative for the success of a company looking to expand into this distinctive sector of the market.
Our company Sequoya Biotechnologies is the European industry CBD product innovator & leading manufacturer of ingredients & bioingredients derived from natural plant extracts, with a specialization in hemp & cannabis ingredients & products. Our company also strives to be a pioneer in manufacturing & formulating dietary supplements and more specifically herbal supplements; such as, ashwagandha, ginseng, melatonin, lemon balm and Bacopa monnieri (Brahmi), to name a few. These are among a list of medicinal Ayurvedic herbs.
Given cannabidiol’s applications to treat insomnia and anxiety, a common combination is CBD with melatonin or CBD with lemon balm often used before sleep.
Worth noting that Bacopa Monnieri is a very similar compound to CBD. With applications ranging from Bacopa Monnieri treating anxiety, insomnia, even reduce inflammation. Even applications to treat neurological disorders (NCBI and Sage) and even epilepsy. Although studies on empirical evidence are ongoing there are many parallels between CBD and Bacopa Monnieri.
One of the many innovations our company is proud of is being the first in Europe to formulate Ayurveda dietary supplements and vitamins with CBD Oils in and standardize formulations for mass production on behalf of their clients.
We firmly believe in the synergies between CBD and herbal supplements, particularly as CBD gains credibility as a herbal extract with immense healing qualities, we see combining these herbal extracts is a natural evolution that will deliver further improved health benefits to consumers. Such products have board applications in supplements, sports nutrition, nutraceuticals, food & beverage and in equally pharmaceuticals sold via prescription.
At Sequoya we passionately apply a forward-thinking approach realizing that research & innovation is key and doing this across several industries to cross pollinate results and benefits to use in new applications.

CBD, Dietary Supplement & Vitamins Complex
Sequoya offers many options for companies to choose from, which are available to purchase wholesale or packaged for private label. When it comes to formulating CBD oils with Sequoya, the first step is selecting one of three (3) base CBD Oil variants, Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum and PureCBD+Oil (Sequoya’s product name for CBD Isolate & carrier oil).
Each base oil has different specifications that are designed to best align with the product’s purpose, target audience, distribution channel and compliance with local market rules around such specifics like THC levels.
For example, the base CBD Isolate & carrier oil is the isolated CBD cannabinoid, purified to a pharma grade purity and void of any other cannabinoids; including, having no THC. Hence the name PureCBD+Oil which is typically used in cases where the intended market has no tolerance for THC, or for products sold in pharmacies or pharmaceuticals.
We recommend reading MedicalNewsToday’s article for a third party overview of the differences and comparisons of these three CBD oil variations and products.
Below are the three primary CBD Oil product variants which European Brands base new supplement products that increasingly combine mainstream herbal supplements such as melatonin, ginseng and a range of vitamins.
Full Spectrum CBD Oil
This Full Spectrum CBD Oil variant delivers the full range of naturally occurring cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids found within hemp plants. CBD Full Spectrum Oil, is the richest form of CBD products a consumer or patient can obtain as it contains the Full Spectrum of cannabinoids, flavonoids and terpenoids naturally occurring in the hemp & cannabis plant (included CBC cannabichromene, CBG Cannabigerol, CBDV cannabidivarin).
Our facility is committed to delivering a full and natural cannabinoid profile and producer our Full Spectrum CBD oil using only natural plant cannabinoids. Our manufacturing process does not cut corners by using isolated cannabinoids. The result is a natural and rich cannabinoid profile that is especially effective for patients with neurological disorders.
Businesses looking to develop unique, specialized product lines can choose optional supplement additions like herbal supplements, vitamins, flavors, and product colors. Sequoya’s Full Spectrum CBD oil is offered in various concentration levels ranging from 3% to 30%. In addition, they offer 10ml, 20ml, and 30ml options for bottle sizes.
Broad Spectrum CBD Oils
Broad Spectrum CBD Oils are similar to their Full Spectrum CBD Oils as they contain all of a rich profile of the naturally occurring compounds found within hemp plants. However, Broad Spectrum CBD Oils are further refined during extraction to reduce THC levels to <0.05%. These oils are becoming increasingly popular in Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) distribution markets as they’re nearly non existent THC levels alleviate issues that local governments may have.
PureCBD + Oil
Pure CBD + Oil is Sequoya’s product consisting of pharma grade pure 99% CBD isolate mixed with a base carrier of hemp seed oil or MCT coconut oil. Our company produces the CBD Isolate, an isolated cannabidiol in powder form, on site under strict manufacturing standards delivering the purest compound to comply with the strictest pharmaceutical requirements. CBD Isolate is homogenized with the base carrier to deliver pure clarity of product and stability as Sequoya’s signature PureCBD+Oil product.
Our PureCBD product formula is based on the purest form of CBD as an Isolated compound, and has zero (0%) THC. Due to it’s pure form and lack of THC, this product is typically used by companies planning distribution in regions with zero tolerance for the psychoactive cannabinoid THC or for use in pharmaceutical applications and pharmacy chains.
Therefore major dietary supplement brands that rely primarily on traditional retail distribution often launch their CBD products based on our PureCBD+Oil formula. As all Sequoya products this product can be formulated to combine ingredient extras that add flavours, extra cannabis terpenes, vitamins and herbal supplements.
In addition this product can be further enriched with other cannabinoids such as CBN, CBC, CBG. These extras use typically ordered by supplements companies and CBD brands.
