By Nick Scannapieco

Over the past five years, I've faced many challenges while working in the high-risk sectors of CBD and Nutraceuticals. Everything from helping in the fields to selling ingredients and CPG to advising companies. Trust me, it's not always smooth sailing. Navigating the regulatory maze, working with cautious financial institutions, and dealing with fraud risks and chargebacks are all part of the job. But with the right guidance and support, it's possible to turn these daunting tasks into opportunities for growth.

Let me break down some of the common challenges you might face and how to solve them to sail through them confidently.

1. Steering Clear of Regulatory Obstacles

It's no secret that the laws surrounding CBD, Kratom, and Nutraceuticals are in a constant state of flux. Keeping up with the latest changes and avoiding penalties is essential and can be quite a challenge. That's where WAAVE comes in. As your trusted advisor, we help you efficiently navigate the ever-shifting regulations, ensuring your business remains compliant and on the right side of the law.

This reluctance can make it difficult to access essential resources, like payment processing solutions. The good news is that WAAVE has your back.
