Jess Gelling on Management and Leadership in the Cannabis Industry 

With an explosive growth curve over the last year that has resulted in the hiring of an affiliate manager to serve the 270 affiliate members of award-winning CBD brand Hannabis, the company has nonetheless managed to retain its innovative approach to affiliate marketing.

Jess Gelling is the Affiliate Manager of award-winning UK CBD brand Hannabis. Her job is to help people get their CBD biz up and running as well as running her own. She is a huge believer in the power of cannabis and wants to spread the word as far and wide as it will go. She is the creator and host for a new upcoming podcast The UK Potcast. Her ultimate goal would be to turn many many sceptics into believers and see this country towards decriminalisation.
