Gary Roberts - Growing a CBD Brand and Challenging Myths
Show Notes

What sets a CBD brand apart in a saturated market? 

You’ll need superior strategy, strong ethics and educational content marketing to build your brand as a trusted authority.

Gary Roberts' introduction to selling CBD products came from a desire to help athletes recover and an interest in the science. A shift for Gary was the realization that CBD could be used as a treatment for addiction. He learned this just before the loss of his daughter.

That loss inspired Gary to found Pure Body Zen, a company founded on the commitment to producing a quality product. Gary hosts the Good Dudes Grow podcast. He shares accurate information and the best in thought leadership from the CBD industry.
