The East Tennessee Hemp Company opened its second location on Friday.

The new store is located on Main Street in downtown Johnson City.

The company’s first store is in Jonesborough, where the hemp is grown.

The stores sell CBD-based products that have THC level of 0.3 and under…from CBD oil to edibles.

“Johnson City is something that we’ve been thinking about for a really long time,” said Haley Hodges with the East Tennessee Hemp Company. “A lot of people have always pushed us to be in Johnson City. We have people that drive four to six hours to get our products.”

The store will hold a grand opening on April 19.

Where Science Meets Hemp

We’re the Hemp Wellness Collection You Can Trust.

From seed to shelf, our team participates in every part of the process ensuring each ingredient is intentionally sourced and processed with care to deliver solutions you can depend on. Our products are always made with the highest quality hemp. Guaranteed.


Science and hemp all day, every day. Blühen’s experts work to identify unique strains of industrial hemp with the highest CBD yield and explore the genetics of other cannabinoids. Plants are hand-cultivated in our research and development facility that uses deep-water-culture hydroponics and sustainable growing practices before heading to our in-house lab. We employ the rigors of a pharmaceutical laboratory to test and evaluate various specimens and resulting products. The aim? To identify the top cultivars for different regions of the country and the world.


The ground, the soil, and its farmer matter. Blühen has partnered with select farms throughout the US to provide non-GMO, all natural hemp grown without herbicides, pesticides, and chemical fertilizers. Our experienced horticulturists, plant pathologists, agronomists, and entomologists work directly with our farming partners to ensure the best CBD yield and overall health of their hemp crop.


We’re picky. Our obsession with quality led us to go with the safest, most efficient method of extracting CBD from the plant: ethanol extraction. Once the CBD within the plant is dissolved into sub-zero ethanol, we use an evaporator, a short-path distillation process, and a crystallization chamber to get any residual ethanol and remaining particles out. The end result: 99% pure CBD in powder form.


Your wellness is our mission as every formula is thoughtfully grown, tested, formulated, and crafted to best meet your needs and expectations. Blühen’s process of care, however, doesn’t end until our premium hemp products reach a shelf; yours or ours. In addition to having our products delivered to your door, we have a flagship retail and wellness shop in Knoxville, Tennessee, staffed with hemp pros who will educate and guide you to the solution that’s right for you. So, if you’re in East Tennessee, we’d love to meet you! Swing by our store for some conversation, education, libations, and fun – the Blühen Botanical way.
