LAFOLLETTE, TN. (WLAF)- CBD and Vape Guru has products to help ease pain, anxiety and other issues. CBD stands for cannabidiol and is a compound found in cannabis plants. It is legal in Tennessee.
“This (CBD) is completely legal,” John Minor, store owner, said. Under state law, a product with a THC content of less than .3 is legal in Tennessee. THC is the psychoactive compound found in marijuana. Everything at CBD and Vape Guru is under .3, Minor said.
Minor opened CBD and Vape Guru in December 2023. He hopes to remove the stigma associated with CBD.
CBD is a “natural, non- addictive substance,” according to Minor. In his law enforcement career Minor never witnessed a violent act where THC was the cause, he said.
For people hoping to get relief from a particular ailment by using one of the products, Minor has two pieces of advice. Consult a physician if someone is taking other medications and “start small,” he said.
In CBD products the store offers edibles, disposable vapes, pods and other products. All products come from a Tennessee distributor.
CBD and Vape Guru also offers preflavored, non CBD, vapes with a unique twist. A customer can try the vape before they buy it. “We are the only one in town that does that,” Minor said.
Because of the stigma surrounding CBD, Minor knows some people may be hesitant to visit his store or use any of the products. He encourages anyone with questions to visit the store.
Veterans, law enforcement and first responders receive a 10 percent discount on any purchase.
“I want to help this community,” he said.
That community includes household pets.
At CBD and Vape Guru, Max’s Canine Corner offers CBD products for cats and dogs. These will reduce the anxiety pets can have from storms and fireworks.
The store also offers hair and skin care products that are Hemp based. Hemp is a variety of Cannabis sativa that is cultivated for its fiber, not its psychoactive effects.
CBD and Vape Guru is located next to Papa John’s in LaFollette. The store is open Monday through Saturday from 11am to 11pm. “Come down and talk to me,” he said.
