Flavor Development

Flavour Development – E-Liquid and CBD

E-liquid and CBD product sales margins don’t look to be slowing down anytime soon. In fact, some sources predict they’re set to climb by at least 20% between now and 2027. Now is the perfect time to get ahead of the curve.

Here at Xyfil we are experts in helping you develop your CBD or E-Liquid product, from initial idea development right through to creation, regulation compliance, and packaging design. The market for E-Liquids is competitive with new brands/products appearing every day. To stand out in this growing market and get ahead you must get creative when developing your next product flavour. 

Define Your E-Liquid with Flavour

With so much competition now on the market, offering something that’s new but has the staying power to build a loyal fanbase is key. Your product packaging and logo may be enticing to new customers, but what really keeps them coming back is the experience of a great product. Flavours are obviously a big factor in a customer’s choice when picking their E-Liquid or CBD vape. So whether you are looking to bring a new variation to an existing, popular flavour, or a completely new experience, research is key. Much research has found that fruit flavours rank highly amongst most vapers, albeit only by a little more. This doesn’t mean that other flavours such as menthol, desserts, drinks and tobacco should be ignored, it means there’s room for improvement which very well could be your next venture!

Let us lead you through the best route for flavour development.

E-Liquid Essentials: Safety Regulations 

First things first, ensure your flavour producers are safe, regulated, and reliable. Not only is this an essential for sale in store or online across the UK and European Union, it ensures safety and consistency in your product, and builds trust in your customer base. 

Our  ISO 7 Laboratory testing at  Xyfil meets the highest standards of compliance, meeting full Tobacco Products Directive (TPD), toxicology and safety analysis requirements. Alongside stringent testing and safety measures and a dedicated, expert team of scientists, we maintain full traceability of all of our products. Throughout the production process, we closely monitor the quality and safety of our product, through employee traceability reports, raw material sample collections, and comprehensive recording of ingredients and product processes. 

Working with Xyfil means working with an industry leading team you can trust. When you’re trying to get ahead of the competition, make sure your production is as straightforward as possible and save yourself the stress. We’ve got you covered.

Creating A Bestselling Flavour 

Flavour development starts with focusing on your base taste. How are you going to create this, and what combination is key? Working with our dedicated team of flavour experts is central to developing a top selling CBD or E-Liquid product, with a flavour that sells.

Our flavour ranges are some of the broadest on the market - from apple and cherry menthol to blueberry ice, Cuban Crème and caramel latte. Our in-house research and development teams work consistently to explore and develop new flavour bases and combinations based on the latest scientific findings and insider market research. Whether you already know your exact flavour or have an idea on the taste you wish to create, Xyfil will help your dream become a reality.

Alongside a diverse and inspiring range of flavours to choose from, our cannabidiol is sustainably sourced from a premium, award-winning supplier. We also offer 100% organic CBD Isolate, full-spectrum CBD, MCT oil and flavoured terpenes as needed. 

How We Keep Your Flavour Safe

Confidentiality you can trust is essential to successful white label manufacturing. Setting your flavour, branding, and product marketing in stone will ensure your success over your competitors.  We’re proud to say our infrastructure, processes, and working systems are all centred around a secure protection of intellectual property and full confidentiality for all projects. Alongside compiling non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) as standard, we also include data masking measures such as advanced encryption and pseudonym systems. These methods ensure your product and specific flavour profiles are kept strictly between you and the dedicated project team in question.

5 Things You Need To Know About CBD

What is CBD?

CBD’s efficacy and versatility has earned it a prime spot in countless products across various industries, from cosmetics to the vape industry, food and drink, and health supplements. You’ll find it in almost everything from body butters to beers, but in spite of this much deserved hype, a lot of people are still in the dark about CBD’s origins and uses. Let’s run through some CBD essentials, and some of our favourite CBD facts.

CBD Is The Main Component of Cannabis

First things first, what is CBD, and where does it come from? Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of 120 cannabinoids that makes up the cannabis plant. CBD is a non-intoxicating and non-euphoric psychoactive cannabinoid – meaning it can be great natural supplement to help you relax without getting you “high”.

Differences Between CBD Oils

Not all CBD oils are the same. Typically, they fall into three categories:

Full Spectrum – containing the full spectrum of CBD, including minor cannabinoids, cannabis-derived terpenes, and trace amounts of THC.

Broad Spectrum – containing a full spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes, but without trace THC.

Isolate – a pure form of CBD with all other compounds removed. While some branding can be unclear about which category is contained in some products, it’s important to be sure which type you are buying. THC is a euphoric psychoactive cannabinoid, and as such does produce highs. THC is broadly illegal, and can increase depression and psychosis.

The Human Body Produces Cannabinoids

We know, sounds like science fiction, doesn’t it? But it’s true

Our bodies contain endocannabinoid systems, or ECS, complex cell-signaling systems with receptors in your central nervous system and peripheral nervous systems, particularly our immune cells. Research into ECS is still in its infancy – having first been identified in the 1990s – but scientists have so far uncovered that the ECS plays a role in regulating various body functions including sleep, mood, memory, and reproduction.

Our biological cannabinoids can help relieve pain, reduce inflammation, support the immune systems and ease symptoms of autoimmune disorders. It’s also been found that using CBD products as an additional supplement can help maintain our endocannabinoid systems, alongside the relaxation support offered by CBD supplements. A win win!

CBD Can Help Cancer Patients Manage Symptoms

Cancer is one of our most prolific diseases and innovative research is consistently increasing life expectancy and quality of life for sufferers year on year. Amongst this research, CBD has been touted to be a worthwhile aide to help cancer patients manage their symptoms.  

Cancer Research UK reports laboratory research so far as shown that CBD can cause cancer cell death or block cancer cell growth, stop the development of blood vessels which are needed for tumors to grow, and reduce inflammation. Although studies have had mixed results and more research is needed before anything conclusive can be decided, early discoveries are promising for the capabilities of CBD in cancer management.

CBD May Be a Helpful Supplement for Children

As CBD is non-intoxicating and non-euphoric, it is safe to give to most children in certain formats. In this article from Daily CBD, reviewed by Dr Abraham Benevides, M.D., gummies and low percentage oils are cited as the most appropriate means for CBD intake for children.

CBD supplements have been cited to help alleviate symptoms of anxiety, insomnia, asthma and nausea, as well as some skin conditions. It is, of course, essential to monitor CBD dosage when supplementing for children, and certain products – such as vapes – are not appropriate.

What is CBD?

CBD stands for Cannabidiol, a natural extract of the Hemp plant that is perfectly legal and non-psychoactive. CBD won’t get you high in the psychoactive sense, but it can provide many other benefits including pain relief, anti-inflammation and CBD oil has been used as to reduce anxiety and depression in patients (Healthline, 2021).

CBD is different from THC, which is the psychoactive component found in marijuana. People often assume that Cannabis is the same as marijuana, but in reality, only a few plants in the Cannabis family contain THC. At Cali Greens, we extract our CBD from sustainable and legally grown hemp farms in Colorado, USA with no trace of THC.

The Future Looks Bright for the UK CBD Industry

If you’re looking for a safe market to bet on in the coming years, the cannabinoid niche should be top of your list. The UK CBD industry is still in its infancy, with little government or organisational support or advocacy – and yet it is projected to generate £690 million this year.

Consumer interest in the health and wellness sector has developed exponentially, with a broad increase in demand for physical and mental wellbeing support being particularly strong through the pandemic. As the efficacy of CBD supplementation becomes more well known, consumers are increasingly seeing the industry as a credible means of individual wellbeing support.
