    Hello everyone,

    I work for a CBD Oil Company. CBD is derived from Hemp (which is federally legal) however, many websites and companies see this as us selling Marijuana which couldn't be further from the truth given that CBD has no psychoactive properties whatsoever, can be sold in any store, can be taken by anyone of any age and can be purchased without a prescription either online or over the counter.

    Regardless of the legal status, many companies have still given us a flat out "No" even through we are completely in the right as far as the laws go. For example - Google Adwords does not allow the promotion of our website for this reason.

    My question is, how would could we, or how would someone we hire go about promoting our Company and avoiding the several roadblocks we've encountered along the way? I would be more than happy to discuss an opportunity with someone if they believe they have the talent to promote our company.

    I have experience marketing for products like this and come from a national agency that specialized in alternative clients, ie marijuana, vape, strip clubs and etc.

    SEO is a good option. Paid ads are not really. There are underground/alternative display network that can be useful. Typical social media efforts can work, as well as social "dark posting". I don't freelance but I can connect you with my former colleagues.

    For SEO you'll need to build a quality PBN so you control the entire sites.

    Also, you would be well served with a decent social media infrastructure and be involved in groups on FB that are centered around your product line and some ancillary products.

    Guest posting will work as well as there are plenty of opportunities there.
