Hempika company overview
Hempika was founded in 2015 in Nova Gorica, a town located in western Slovenia, close to the country’s border to Italy. The company’s team is made up of numerous experts who have studied the beneficial effects of cannabis for a long time.
Hempika is a CBD manufacturer. The company supervises the entire manufacturing process, from seed to the final product. Hempika puts a lot of effort into creating the best possible products, so it can guarantee that everything you buy is pure, safe and produced according to the industry’s highest standards.
The company’s manufacturing process is certified and meets all the quality standards required in the cannabis industry. Hempika only uses organic hemp that meets the technical specifications required in the European Union, including having a tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) concentration lower than 0.2 percent.
Hempika’s processing facility is HACCP, GMP and ISO certified, so you can rest assured that the final products are safe and free of potentially harmful contaminants, such as heavy metals, bacteria, pesticides or other chemicals.
All of the products you can find in Hempika’s online store are produced by the company, so Hempika guarantees their quality. As proof of the confidence the company has in its products, everything you buy comes with a 100 percent money-back guarantee.
Hempika’s website looks nice and is user-friendly. The website’s default language is English, so international shoppers should be able to navigate it with ease, but you can also navigate it in Slovenian if you want to.
Besides an online shop, the website also features the company’s various certificates and an informative blog section where you can read more about cannabinoids, how to take them, how they affect the human body and more. In addition to all that information, you can also check out Hempika’s FAQ section to learn more about orders, payment, shipping, etc.
Every product featured on the website comes with a short description, a list of ingredients, information about how to use and store it, and more. Every product also comes with its own reviews. Some of the reviews are in Slovanian and are not automatically translated into English, but you can use the customers’ rating as a guideline to find the best products.
Hempika runs different promotions throughout the year. The company features one promotion code on top of the homepage, so you can receive a discount on your first order. You can also sign up for the company’s newsletter to receive promotional codes and coupons that can bring your order’s price even lower.
Hempilka produces and sells a good variety of products. You can find most of the products you’d expect in the online store, such as CBD oils, edibles, topicals, pet products and more.
One of the products we enjoyed was Hempika’s 1,000 mg CBD drops. These high-strength CBD drops are made using CO2 extraction, so they’re rich in bioactive components, such as cannabinoids, flavonoids and terpenes.
Thanks to the large number of beneficial nutrients, the drops produce an entourage effect. The drops come with a child-lock dropper for secure dosing, and they have a mild hemp taste.
Another great product is the 1,500 mg CBD paste. This medium-strength product is a great choice for those who want to experience all the benefits of CBD but dislike the taste of hemp. The paste is made with coconut butter, so coconut is the predominant taste. The paste comes in a handy disposer that makes dosing easy, and it’s rich in bioactive components.
Payment and delivery
On Hempika’s website, you can pay for your order with a Visa or Mastercard card, via bank transfer or with cryptocurrency (Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Litecoin and Ripple).
The entire website uses SSL encryption, so your data will be safe throughout the checkout process.
Hempika offers free worldwide shipping for all orders over €99. All orders over €30 get free shipping within Slovenia. If your order doesn’t meet this value, the company will charge between €4 to €18 for shipping, depending on your location.
All orders placed before 2 PM local time are shipped with DHL or Slovenian Post on the same day. Hempika ships all of its orders in discreet packaging, so they won’t stand out. Your order should reach its destination within two to 14 working days, depending on your location.
Hempika features individual reviews for each of its products. If you’re browsing the website in English, you’ll only be able to read the English reviews by default. However, you can choose to display all the reviews.
Most of the reviews are in Slovenian, so international shoppers might not be able to read them. However, you can use the rating as an indicator of some of the customers’ favourite products.
Hempika is also featured on third-party rating platforms, such as Trustpilot. There, the company has a rating of 4.8/5, with 63 reviews.
Final thoughts on Hempika
Hempika is a CBD manufacturer that values product safety and quality above everything else. Everything the company does meets and often surpasses the international standards available for the CBD industry, so you can rest assured that every product is safe and pure.
Even though Hempika doesn’t offer as many products as other manufacturers, the shop’s a reliable source for some of the public’s favourite ones.
