Carolina Hemp Company opens store in Landrum - Spartanburg Herald Journal

Carolina Hemp Company’s new store in downtown Landrum offers a variety of hemp flower extract products including oils and edibles.

The store at 118 E. Rutherford St., was opened in late 2019 by Justin and Amy Powell of Rutherford County, N.C. The franchise has five other locations in the Carolinas.

Formed in 2014, the company’s headquarters is located in Asheville, N.C. It’s a wholesale distributor of hemp products.

The Powells were in Asheville when they first saw a Carolina Hemp Company truck and decided to learn more about the company. They soon became a franchisee opening a store in Landrum and have treated their horses with hemp extract to help them heal and overcome injuries.

“The reception from Landrum has been wonderful,” Amy Powell said. “Everyone has been so nice and welcoming. People come from all over including Spartanburg and Hendersonville, N.C. It’s great because they don’t have to go far to get hemp products.”

The company’s other franchise locations include Indian Land, Rock Hill, Charlotte, and Youngsville N.C. The hemp flowers are grown organically in Asheville and distributed to store locations.

Flower extract products include vape oils and sublingual oils. The location in Landrum sells regular and peppermint flavored hemp extract supplements that can be taken daily.

“Our main seller is the whole spectrum hemp extract,” Amy Powell said. “It helps reduce anxiety, blood pressure and is an anti-inflammatory.”

The hemp extract contains raw acidic cannabinoids. Justin Powell said there are low amounts of THC in the extract.

“We sell the full spectrum not just CBD (Cannabidiol),” he said. “They attach to the receptors properly and you get more benefit out of them. Everything is grown and processed by the company in Asheville where there are tight quality controls and you know what you are buying.”

The extract supplement is recommended to be taken twice daily under the tongue for 60 seconds before swallowing.

“It provides a calming effect,” Amy Powell said.

The store sells flavored dog treats with hemp products and honey, jellies and coffee with hemp. Customers can also find gummy bears, bath balms and BBQ sauce with hemp ingredients.

Some of the hemp flowers available for smoking include Cherry Pie, Special Sauce and Hawaiian Haze. Hawaiian Haze is the store’s top seller and contains the highest CBD content.

The 2018 U.S. Farm Bill federally legalized hemp production and processing. Hemp has low amounts of THC, which is the main psychoactive component of cannabis.

Carolina Hemp Company in Landrum is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and from noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. The store is closed Mondays.
