In 2018, after 18 months of hemp industry due diligence by long time friends, Joe Fox (CEO) and Erich Maelzer (Director of Horticulture), Blühen Botanicals was founded to help farmers produce better yielding crop, create jobs, and make a meaningful difference in the health and wellness of their local Knoxville community while impacting wellness globally.

What sets us apart? While the industry may not be regulated, Blühen Botanicals has the integrity to regulate ourselves in a market inundated with poor-quality and imported CBD products. We implement Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and FDA-level quality assurance protocols - as well as third-party testing to ensure we consistently bring top-grade and trustworthy products to the marketplace. Our mission has been to hire passionate, brilliant people who wake up every morning inspired by the difference they're making; by being a part of an organization providing premium wellness products made from plant extracts - without the side effects of synthetic substances. Our customers can trust us and we're excited about enhancing the world around us.
