  1. I am the owner of JustCBD label (justcbdstore.com) and I’m presently seeking to develop my wholesale side of company. It would be great if someone at targetdomain can help me ! I thought that the best way to do this would be to reach out to vape shops and cbd retailers. I was hoping if someone could suggest a trusted site where I can get CBD Shops Sales Leads I am already examining creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Unsure which one would be the very best selection and would appreciate any guidance on this. Or would it be easier for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?
