East Tennessee Hemp Company, Inc.
East Tennessee Hemp Company, Inc. is an Industrial Hemp farm located in Jonesborough, Tennessee. It is owned and operated by husband and wife, David and Tara Cooper. They began producing hemp in 2017 and became the first hemp store in the Tri-Cities when they opened their doors in Jonesborough on June 29, 2018. East Tennessee Hemp Company offers the best alternative health products nature has to offer including edibles, CBD Oil, Personal Care Products, CBD infused dog calming treats, clothing, vape, healthcare, and skincare products, and Hemp flower. All the products they sell have been lab tested and meet Tennessee’s 0.3 THC threshold laws.
For David Cooper, the business isn’t all about selling hemp products it’s about education. He’s on a mission to teach our community about HEMP aka Help Educate More People. Marijuana and Hemp are both Cannabis however only one of them has a psychoactive effect. The main difference between the two are in their chemical compositions, more specifically the amount of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) each hold. THC is the chemical responsible for marijuana’s psychological effects. An average batch of marijuana contains anywhere from 5-20% THC content. Hemp, on the other hand, has a max THC level of 0.3%, essentially making it impossible to get a “high”. Hemp contains high cannabidiol (CBD) rather than THC, which essentially counteracts the psychoactivity of the minimal amount of THC in hemp. CBD is a cannabis compound that has several significant medical benefits but does not produce a “high”, making it perfect for people looking for relief from inflammation, pain, anxiety, seizures, addiction, and other conditions.
Ever since their company was established, they’ve endeavored to provide the best High CBD Hemp Strains from the greatest farmers in
the world. Stop by their store today at 107 East Main Street in Jonesborough or their second location at 300 White Bridge Rd in Nashville, opened on September 29, to learn more about Hemp and see how it could benefit you.
