  1. I am the business owner of JustCBD label (justcbdstore.com) and I’m presently looking to develop my wholesale side of business. It would be great if anybody at targetdomain can help me 🙂 I thought that the most suitable way to do this would be to connect to vape companies and cbd retailers. I was hoping if anybody could suggest a qualified site where I can purchase CBD Shops Business Contact Details I am already considering creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not sure which one would be the best selection and would appreciate any guidance on this. Or would it be simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?

  2. When I originally left a comment I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on every time a comment is added I recieve four emails with the exact same comment. Is there a way you are able to remove me from that service? Kudos!

  3. Next time I read a blog, Hopefully it doesn’t fail me as much as this one. After all, Yes, it was my choice to read through, but I really believed you’d have something useful to say. All I hear is a bunch of crying about something you could possibly fix if you weren’t too busy searching for attention.
