  1. Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t
    mind me asking what theme you’re using? (and don’t mind if I steal it?
    :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like
    yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate
    any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself
    during the coronavirus scare!

  2. Hi Alex,

    I searched up your website, but I couldn’t access it, because I am under 18 years of age, and your website says you can only access it if you are above 18 years of age. This is why I called my dad, and my dad logged in.

    You have many visitors, and I realised that because there were many people who bought special products. Your website flows well, and in my opinion, it doesn’t slow down a bit. I looked at all the tabs, and I like how you have so much information. I also like the logo a lot.

    The only thing I would suggest to you is that maybe use Grammarly, as there are a couple of punctuation and spelling errors. By the way, I will have to ask my dad what my theme is later. Maybe just wait for 1 more day, please.
