Building a CBD Online Store on WordPress with Shayda Torabi

In episode 168 of our podcast, I chat with Shayda Torabi, co-founder of RESTART CBD.

CBD, WooCommerce and WordPress

The CBD (cannabidiol) industry is growing by leaps and bounds. Shayda took her personal challenges and turned it into a business through her passion.

She tells us the story behind why she started the business and is candid about the challenges from governmental to payment gateways. She also shares why she chose to use WordPress and WooCommerce and the experiences she had when looking at other eCommerce platforms.

We also talk a lot about her challenges with WordPress and WooCommerce. Shayda doesn’t hold back on this and we discover that selling a product such as CBD comes with a lot of variables and potential hurtles to overcome.

Shayda also is one of the few business owners that I have talked to who started online and then opened up a brick and mortar shop. This, again, comes from the unique challenges of CBD but also extends to why she felt the need for a physical presence as well.

There are a lot of gems in this conversation for anyone who works with WooCommerce and/or is thinking about getting into the CBD space. Hope you’ll join us for this one.
