ReLeaf Business Spotlight:
ReLeaf, a local business located on the downtown Thomaston square, has been in operation since the summer of 2021. The owner, Dakota Terrell, has a diverse background in retail pharmacy, implementing inventory systems, and working as a real estate acquisitions agent. Dakota noticed a gap in the market and decided to open a store that offers high-quality hemp products for pain and anxiety relief. ReLeaf ensures that all its products are third-party, lab-tested and do not contain harmful elements. The typical client ranges from the mid-30s to early 60s or 70s, seeking pain and anxiety relief. However, Dakota does not sell to minors, as these products are for individuals 21 years and older.
These products do not guarantee alleviating all your symptoms, as they can affect each person's body differently. ReLeaf offers up to 15% discounts for healthcare workers, teachers, first responders, and military veterans. Dakota says, “The community has been very accepting, and ReLeaf has been operating for almost ten months”.
It's important to note that none of the products cause altered vision, and ReLeaf only sells hemp products containing no more than 0.3% of Delta 9 THC, which is used for mood improvement and pain relief. They also claim that their products can aid sleep but suggest that individuals should do their research into what works best for them and their body.
At ReLeaf, there are a wide variety of hemp products, from oils to lip balms to bath soaks. Stop by this week to support a local business! Dakota is very friendly and informative regarding every product he carries.
