The CBD & Cannabis is a booming market yet it can be difficult to market online to sell your products. With the major payment gateways hesitant to react due to the nature of the product, it can be hard to understand how you set up your own online store to sell CBD Oil or other products related to Cannabis or Hemp which are now legal. Setting up an online store using WordPress is one of the best methods to ensure you have full control over your website, unlike Shopify.
As with any business start-up, keeping costs low is often one of the greatest challenges when launching your own online store. With WordPress, we offer two solutions, either the use of a premium theme or a bespoke build. You can read the difference between the pair here: When Should I Choose A Bespoke WordPress Website Over Using A Premium Theme?
If you are looking to keep your costs low, the premium theme option could be perfect for you. This latest article will review the best WordPress themes available on the market for your Cannabis or CBD Oil website.
JointUp – Medical Marijuana & CBD Oil & Cannabis WordPress Theme
On first impressions, we really like the aesthetics of the JointUp – Cannabis/CBD WordPress theme! JointUp uses a fresh colour scheme which moves past the standard ‘Green’ colour other companies use and associated with Cannabis. The result is a unique looking design which will appeal to the younger demographic (24+ years old). This Cannabis/CBD WordPress theme comes with three pre-built demos which includes a ‘one-click-installation’ functionality, allowing you to easily install one of your chosen demos from the JointUp theme.
WooCommerce is the WordPress extension which turns your website into an Ecommerce store and JointUp is fully compatible with the WooCommerce plugin. You can check out the store by viewing one of the demos. The page layouts have been built using WPBakery Page Builder, this is one, if not best page builders built for WordPress. By using the drag and drop functionality, you can easily build new page layouts for your Cannabis or CBD website.
In addition to this JointUp is compatible with the WPML plugin, this allows you to easily make your website multilingual, especially helpful if you wish to begin selling your Cannabis or CBD products in other countries.
Indicana – Medical Marijuana & CBD Oil & Cannabis WordPress Theme
The Indicana – Medical Marijuana & Cannabis/CBD WordPress Theme comes with 6 pre-built demos which not only focuses on people who want to set up their own Cannabis/CBD store but also provides a demo for if you wanted your own Cannabis or CBD Blog. With ‘One Click Installation’ available, it is easy to set up one of the pre-built demos and launch your Cannabis/CBD Oil website while making minor changes.
Aesthetically wise, Indicana comes with some really nice illustration which can make your website look super professional. This Cannabis/CBD WordPress theme has been designed very nicely and feels like it leans more towards the medicinal market rather the JointUp WordPress theme, mentioned above. Throughout the design there is a really smooth transition effect to the elements which appear on page.
As with the JointUp theme, Indicana comes with all the necessary plugins to launch your Cannabis or CBD shop. The page layouts have been built using WPBakery Page Builder, this is one, if not best page builders built for WordPress. By using the drag and drop functionality, you can easily build new page layouts for your Cannabis/CBD website. In addition to this Indicana is compatible with the WPML plugin, this allows you to easily make your website multilingual, especially helpful if you wish to begin selling your Cannabis or CBD products in other countries.
Cannaverde – Medical Marijuana & CBD Oil & Cannabis WordPress Theme
Cannaverde is one of the more recently added WordPress themes added to Themeforest, targeting the Cannabis and CBD industry. We really love the look of this theme, again it is super clean and has a great balance of imagery with adequete spacing. If you are looking to launch a Cannabis or CBD website which looks to be an authority and professional, this theme is definitely for you.
Unlike many premium WordPress themes, this one is suited to use the Elementor page builder which is becoming increasingly more popular. Cannaverde is fully responsive for mobile devices and WooCommerce compatabile, allowing you to set up your own Ecommerce store. The theme comes with the handy feature of an inbuilt age verification function, as well as translation ready.
Salient – Premium WordPress Theme
The great thing about WordPress is the amount of available themes to choose from. Choosing a WordPress theme to use which has been purposely built for the CBD industry is perfect if you are looking to keep costs low and keen to try to set up the website yourself. However, maybe the two themes mentioned above might not be what you are looking for.
Recently we used the Salient WordPress theme to create a website selling CBD Oil for The CBD Supplier. We personally specialise in building website using premium themes as well as bespoke websites built on WordPress. Because of our extensive experience with themes, we understand how they can be manipulated. We have a number of ‘go to’ themes which we are very familiar with and we can tailor to your CBD business.
Whether you are looking to launch an online CBD store, or you are looking to launch one product and in need of a converting sales page, I am sure we can use our experience, not only in WordPress, but the CBD industry to help launch your online business.
