NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – News 2 continues to see the impact of Tennessee’s Hemp Surge with the first-ever CBD food truck in the state now open for business.
Kenneth Smith is the owner of the Franklin-based new food truck called Veteran Vibe CBD.
“To have something of that magnitude – it’s still kind of settling in on me,” said Smith. “Right now I’m just trying to sell paninis and teas.”
Only weeks into its operation, Friday’s Southern Hemp Expo marked the second stop for the food truck.
The original recipes range from sandwiches to teas, even gummy worms, all infused with CBD.
Mikyle Lockwood from cannabis-friendly Colorado said this is a first for him.
“I’m from Denver and I honestly haven’t seen anyone do that even there,” said Lockwood. “It’s actually impressive to see the Tennessee area jumping on that.”
But getting his food truck up and running Smith said has been a long, two-year process.
