Why You Should Buy Hemp Products from Tennessee Hemp Store?

While the answers to the questions above are yes, you'll notice there are caveats. The United States Congress and the state of Tennessee define hemp as cannabis sativa containing less than 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). If cannabis sativa contains greater than 0.3% THC, then it's considered marijuana and that is still illegal in Tennessee, with or without a prescription. 
Since the legality of hemp and CBD products depends on the plant source and the chemical composition of those products, trusting who you buy from and making sure they employ third-party laboratory testing is crucial.
Tennessee Hemp Store is committed to this customer transparency. All of our products  are made in the United States. Specifically, most of our products are made in the state of Tennessee. (Yep, if you live in Tennessee, we're your neighbors.)
And we test twice! First we test in our own lab for quality and compliance, and then we have a third-party, DEA-certified laboratory test the final products to confirm again.

Plus, we own and operate our own sales and distribution operations. By not outsourcing our sales or distribution, we maintain more control.
Knowing what you are really buying and putting into your body is important for your personal health as well as knowing that you are complying with both Tennessee and Federal laws.
