On Friday, August 26th, Snapdragon Hemp, a CBD and hemp company based in Chattanooga, will open the doors to its new store located in Red Bank at 2102 Dayton Boulevard.
Store owner and manager Josh Manning invites the public to celebrate the grand opening and learn more about the products they produce.
Snapdragon Hemp will have their entire staff available from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM to answer questions and explain the benefits that their CBD products can offer.
The new Red Bank location will be Snapdragon Hemp’s eighth retail store since its inception in 2018. Manning became interested in the benefits of hemp after he was seriously injured in a motorcycle accident in 2014. He underwent numerous surgeries, but did not want to use the highly addictive opioids as part of his pain management regimen. Manning decided to try CBD and immediately saw the benefits.
Manning set out to learn how and why CBD works so well. An engineer by profession, he wanted to use his skills to produce and offer the public legal alternative products that could manage various types of pain. Manning began experimenting with different strains, spectra, isolates and terpenes to create the most effective ways to experience the benefits of hemp.
In 2018, Snapdragon Hemp began selling to the local community from a booth at the I-75 Flea Market. From his booth, Manning showed off his products, helping customers better understand CBD and how each product worked. Repeat customers quickly began to increase and word spread quickly. Manning decided it was time to open Snapdragon Hemp’s first retail store on Ringgold Road in East Ridge.
After the success of the East Ridge location, Manning decided to branch out and has since opened seven CBD stores in the Chattanooga area. In addition to retail stores, it provides its products to other companies. Snapdragon Hemp has its own laboratory where they constantly test their products in-house, ensuring they meet legal requirements.
