Cannabidiol commonly referred to as CBD, is one of the many cannabinoids found in the Cannabis plant. Hemp is a form of Cannabis and so is marijuana. But both are different in their composition as marijuana is high in THC, another cannabinoid, which is responsible for its psychoactive effect. Recently, the scientific community has become increasingly interested in CBD, which is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid predominantly found in the hemp plant. Unlike THC, CBD does not cause its consumers to get high. This lead to its recent legalization in the USA. The Farm Bill 2018 removed the ban on cultivating hemp. The numerous benefits of CBD have made it quite sought after in the consumer circles.
The increase in demand for CBD products has inevitably triggered a growth in the CBD business. People are becoming increasingly interested in setting up a CBD business. One of the major concerns when entering the CBD market is choosing the best CBD fulfillment. The CBD fulfillment process is as intricate as the manufacturing itself. This makes it imperative for the CBD business owners to find and carefully invest in the right CBD fulfillment provider.
The entire process from receiving an order to delivering the product to the customer’s doorstep is known as the fulfillment process. The process consists of various steps which can be summed up as follows:
- A customer selects the CBD products of choice and places an order via phone, email or an online platform.
- The order details are entered into the database or the backend ERP system.
- The customer receives a confirmation of the placed order.
- The order, along with several others, is then forwarded to the warehouse either directly or through an integrated order management application.
- The order is collected from the warehouse shelves where it has been kept under optimal environmental conditions to ensure that the CBD products do not go bad, and they retain maximum efficacy.
- The CBD products are carefully packed so that they remain secure during transit.
- The order is shipped.
- Customer first receives a notification about the order being in transit.
- The customer receives the order, in great condition, at his/her doorstep.
