  1. I am the manager of JustCBD Store company (justcbdstore.com) and I’m presently planning to grow my wholesale side of business. I am hoping someone at targetdomain is able to provide some guidance 🙂 I thought that the most effective way to do this would be to talk to vape companies and cbd retailers. I was hoping if anybody at all could suggest a trustworthy web-site where I can purchase CBD Shops Business Leads I am already looking at creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. On the fence which one would be the most suitable solution and would appreciate any advice on this. Or would it be easier for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?
