Taking the Industry by Storm

Farmer Owned CBD Wholesaler and Distributor

This journey started when NC launched its Industrial Hemp research growing program in 2017.  Franny's Farm was one of the first farms to receive a grow permit and Franny Tacy was the first female farmer to plant hemp in NC. The first year Franny grew hemp for fiber and in 2018 she grew hemp for CBD. 


From the time the first hemp seed was planted on Franny's farm in Leicester, NC, Franny and Jeff Tacy knew they needed a way to bring quality hemp and CBD products to market.  After two seasons of growing hemp and considerable market research, the Franny’s Farm product line was launched.  In addition, an E-commerce site was created and launched on the world wide web.  The response from consumers was immediate and overwhelmingly positive. After having countless conversations with consumers, it became very apparent that in a market with so many product options of varying quality, new and seasoned CBD users need a trustworthy source that only provides reputable products and knowledge to back it.


Franny's Distribution Inc. hit the scene like a hurricane.  With white label brands flooding the market there was an opportunity for a quality, locally grown, brand.  Franny's line of products is one of only a couple in the nation that is grown, processed and brought to market locally.  This makes Franny's products unique and traceable from the pant to sale. 

Ethically bringing the highest quality full-spectrum products to market 

Where We Are

We've Built a Unique Brand

Planting hemp for the second consecutive year lead to the creation of Franny's Distribution Inc.  Franny's Distribution Inc. has been selling our products wholesale and through our online ecommerce site.  As a unique brand we've positioned our products to be viewed as high quality and affordable.  We've learned that holding ourselves to the highest standards is something that makes Franny's products different.  We believe Franny's is on a pathway of rapid growth, with expansions into new markets and new products lines.  


Here's why we believe we are a brand well positioned for high level growth:


  • Our products are in high demand to the consumer.
  • Our products are setting the standard in quality.
  • We believe in a fair price for quality products.
  • We are full disclosure with our company history and product line.
  • Complete transparency makes our brand unique.

Our business approach of vertical integration and ethical operation policies give us an edge in the market.  



Where We Are Going

Franny's Traction

You now have an opportunity to invest in one of the fastest growing industries in the history of the USA--Cannabis.  The best part is that you're investing in a company that has a powerhouse brand and is growing on pace with the industry.


Some of the new products in development:


  • Full line of CBD pet chews, treats, and soap bars.  (WiIl launch in the next month).
  • Body care products to include lotions, oils, shampoo, conditioner, face mask, deodorant, and bath salts. (Will launch in the next 1-2 months).
  • Line of anti-aging, acne, and eczema creams.  (Will launch in the next 3-6 months).



Our Products

Using the Purest Full-Spectrum Distillate to Deliver the Best

You'll see that many of the products on the market are made with CBD isolate.  That used to be the norm.  Now, we're setting the bar by using our full-spectrum distillate in all of our products.  What does this mean? This means that instead of only getting the single CBD cannabinoid as you do with isolate, our products provide exposure to an array of cannabinoids.     


Here are a few reasons why we believe our products are better than most products on the market. 


  • All products go from plant to sale. 
  • Full-Spectrum in all of our products.
  • Locally grown, processed and packaged.
  • Super high quality for a great price.
  • Traceability and Accountability. 
  • Excellent customer service.  

We believe we have some of the best quality products on the market. 


Our products are comprised of simple and pure ingredients.  No fillers or unnecessary ingredients will ever go into our products.  We work with reputable manufacturers that operate in certified and inspected facilities. We stand by the sanitation and quality of our products from the field to the consumer. 



Our Market and Industry

Current Problems in the CBD Market

With recent buzz all around the nation regarding CBD products, it is no surprise that people everywhere are eager to try it out for themselves.  These consumers seek out CBD for a variety of reasons that range from chronic pain, anxiety, insomnia, ADHD, and epilepsy to just wanting to relax at the end of a long day.  Most of these individuals have no direct access to CBD products in their area, and the few that do are left scouring gas stations and smoke shops full of questionable products sold by unknowledgeable employees.  Not only does this leave the consumer venerable to products whose strengths and ingredients are misrepresented but also it does not allow for true exploration into products that could provide serious relief for their circumstance.  As a result, many people who are unsatisfied with their experience write off CBD and either return to their own traditional methods of symptom relief or move on to trying other options.


Another common road block in the CBD industry is trying to establish a secure supply chain.  In our retail business we experience constant hang ups with vendors being out of stock of product.  With our high quality product and spotless reputation we know our wholesale program has the potential to grow as large as we let it, but we want to make sure we can keep up with the volume required. 



Our Solution

Franny's Distribution combats current issues of quality in the hemp and CBD market by handling, or directly overseeing, every step of the production of our product line.  With the understanding gained from growing hemp on Franny's Farm, the Distribution team is well equipped to find the highest quality hemp to create our CBD extracts.  By only partnering with manufacturers and processors in our area, we are able to be fully involved in crafting our final product.  With the notoriety gained by the farm in the national hemp scene, people are aware of our expertise and know we are a reliable source for high quality CBD products.  Our marketing team has done an excellent job in extending our already established image within the hemp community to the general public.  The Distribution staff is always available and eager to answers any questions customers may have and make them feel as comfortable as possible.  This has paid off tremendously with the 60+ age group who are often turned off by the traditionally less professional CBD market. 


Tackling the issue of supply chain has been a bit more of a challenge.  We at Franny's Distribution, believe that rolling out a wholesale program without the necessary inventory would create hang ups for the retailer that could diminish brand credibility and future reorders.  Luckily we work closely with a processor in our local area that has the capability to produce as much inventory as needed using our Franny's Farm grown hemp.  To continue to build our inventory and distribution infrastructure our team has decided to turn to crowd funding and give you the investor an opportunity to get in on the ground floor of an emerging industry. 


The outlook for the industry is incredible.  Experts are predicting CBD to be the fastest growing industry in the history of the United States.  Growth predictions are staggering and expected to reach 22 billion dollars by 2022. In addition to our goal of helping our customers with safe and organic solutions, we are also very excited about the opportunity ahead of us.

New Report Predicts CBD Market Will Hit $22 Billion by 2022

"Looking forward to relaxed hemp regulations, a new analysis estimates that the CBD market could explode— and outpace marijuana."


"For years, experts have predicted that if the cannabis industry expands at its current rate, the American market will reach $20 billion by 2020. But it turns out that one market is spinning off into a mega-industry of its own: according to a new estimate from cannabis industry analysts the Brightfield Group, the hemp-CBD market alone could hit $22 billion by 2022."
