When asked what some of the challenges Gemma faced with marketing CBD in the UK she said "Even though CBD is a big topic right now, there are huge challenges. There is lots of misguidance, and people not talking about CBD in the right way. There is a big education piece to do but because we are limited with the platforms that we can advertise CBD on, it makes that education much more challenging".
