LabCanna officially started in January of 2016 after Co-Founders, Joshua Camp and Ian Leadon decided to take part in Tennessee’s Industrial Hemp Research Program offered by the State under the Federal 2014 Farm Bill. Having a great desire to do some good for our State and Country as a whole, Joshua and Ian set about investigating every nuance about Tennessee Hemp cultivation opportunities. This investigation lead them to the TNHIA (Tennessee Hemp Industries Association), which Joshua Camp is now in service as a Board of Directors Member. This Association, with local legislators has been on the forefront of paving a way for this industry to grow out of it’s infancy.
In April of 2016, LabCanna was awarded the first ever Hemp Processing License by the State. Since then, LabCanna has tried to assist and immerse itself in the local grower community, primarily to see them turn a profit and have an avenue to turn their harvest into a product. Considering there over 500 known products made from Hemp, a producer needs to have a focus for what end product they are growing for. Labcanna is committed to assisting this focus and developing the infrastructure farmers will need to maximize on their harvest profits.
