LabCanna sprouted into life after the launch of their flagship product line TenneCBD in 2014. 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 Tennessee State under the Federal 2014 Farm Bill. In April of 2016, LabCanna was awarded the first ever Hemp Processing License by the State of Tennessee. LabCanna was also among the first to receive a hemp growers’ license in Tennessee which was immediately put to use on their farm in Franklin, Tennessee.
Among the nations first CBD products to market, TenneCBD saw incredible growth during its inaugural years, setting the pace for LabCanna’s massive expansion into every phase of the industrial hemp industry. This expansion includes a state-of-the art processing facility in Centerville, Tennessee. This processing facility (we call it the lab) allows LabCanna to aid companies expand their production to stay ahead of demand.
LabCanna holds offices in East Nashville near their first retail location, LabCanna East which opened in January of 2019.
