Cannabis, a lakeside recreation venue and health clinics are connected to new business plans for Mt. Juliet.
Cannabis Catering Lab
The owner of a Mt. Juliet hemp and CBD business has launched a catering business that offers more than 20 cannabinoid meal options.
Cannabis Catering Lab offers hemp and CBD-infused foods for a variety of catered events.
Heath Scott, the owner of 7 Point Farm and Apothecary on Lebanon Road, started Cannabis Catering Lab, which will expand to the Nashville, Memphis, Knoxville, Chattanooga, Murfreesboro and Memphis areas. Cannabis Catering Lab works events for ages 21-up.
Hemp-derived meals can include cannabinoid options with or without THC, the chemical that causes a high. All THC offerings are within the legal amount allowed, Scott said.
Food plates and utensils at catering events are extensively labeled for precautionary measures, Scott said. A signed consent form by those who eat is also required.
Cannabis Catering Lab has a staff of about 10, including four chefs.
Kane Cove Resort
A plan to develop a seasonal recreational venue along Old Hickory Lake in Wilson County has been submitted in Mt. Juliet.
Kane Cove Resort is the working name of the concept plan on just under 20 acres off Nonaville Road, north of Saundersville Road.
The site is within in Mt. Juliet’s growth boundary.
The applicant is interested in annexing the property into the city limits, according to Mt. Juliet Commissioner Ray Justice.
A land use plan amendment and zoning clarification are needed if the plan moves forward with annexation into Mt. Juliet.
The concept plan was submitted to the Mt. Juliet planning commission as a potential prelude ahead of further approval requests if the proposal moves forward.
Tentative uses with the concept plan include:
- 20 RV parking spaces
- Cottages and cabins
- Corporate retreat center
- Boat dock
A retail store and wedding venue are also possibilities.
“It’s an opportunity to use an underutilized asset to bring in tourists,” Justice said.
