After more than 80 years of prohibition, hemp is legal again, and Carl Giuli is seeking to capitalize on it.
Giuli and his wife, Amy, recently opened NEPA Hemp at 2653 Memorial Highway in Dallas. They are selling products containing hemp or CBD, or cannabidiol, which are extracted from cannabis plants but they don’t produce the high that the chemical tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, causes.
The Giulis, who also own Coal City Tavern in Luzerne with partners, showed the various products they sell include tinctures, pain creams, warming rub, cold rub and edibles like chocolate bars and gummies as well as pet products.
“The concept is everything is hemp-based,” Carl Giuli said, while also showing hats, shirts and socks for sale that are partially made with hemp. “We will be selling seeds shortly.”
