In a recent survey, readers of the oft-cited Chapel Hill Magazine declared their love for Carolina Hemp Hut (Hillsborough) as the Best New Business.
The entire team at the Carolina Hemp Hut store is excited that their hard work is being recognized by members of the community and among fellow retailers. “The Hemp space is tough, especially since there is such a negative initial image of anything coming from Cannabis” said Mary Lopez Carter, the founder of the Carolina Hemp Hut stores in a recent follow up phone conversation. “People still come into our store in Hillsborough and are surprised and even shocked when they discover we sell cannabis products, namely Industrial Hemp products.”
In the State of North Carolina, Industrial Hemp products are defined as products originating from industrial hemp or cannabis that is less than 0.3% dwt in THC (Δ-9-tetrahydrocannabinol). Carolina Hemp Hut specializes in products specifically formulated or grown to be less than the legal limit on THC. “A Trace amount of THC is very beneficial for our customers who are able to have it since it is the only Cannabinoid known to bind with the endocannabinoid receptors in the human body. The only reason someone should avoid THC in this small amount is if they are subject to drug testing where zero tolerance is a factor.”
Carolina Hemp Hut began as a kiosk in the Streets at Southpoint Mall in Durham in 2018 and quickly outgrew their allocated space as they researched and expanded their product offerings to meet customer demands. Now, Carolina Hemp Hut offers over 1000 total SKUs in two stores in the Triangle, their flagship store in Hillsborough and their new store in Durham on 15/501.
“This all started because I needed more healthy options for my husband as he continued to fight a set of malignant tumors in his head. I knew their must be a way for nature to help heal. I’m so glad I found legal cannabis as a solid option for many people to improve their lives by helping with discomfort they face. It’s pretty surprising how many people trust cannabis products from hemp to help on a daily basis. What started as a boost for family members only has grown into a full-time job – helping people across the country with a spectrum of health concerns.”
