Grass Roots Health Opens Fort Oglethorpe Retail Location

Thursday, April 11, 2019

Grass Roots Health announces the grand opening Friday of its second retail location, this one in Fort Oglethorpe. 

“When I opened Grass Roots in 2017, I did so with the personal mission of offering people a safe and healthy alternative to opioids,” said Elisha Millan, founder of Grass Roots Health. “We’ve been fortunate to build a dedicated customer base out of our initial retail location in Chattanooga’s Innovation District, and we’re excited to bring our products and expertise to the people of North Georgia.”

Grass Roots’ newest storefront is located at 1857 Battlefield Pkwy., next to Planet Fitness and A Perfect Fit Boutique.

“We hunted high and low for the best place to kick off our retail expansion, and we’ve long felt Fort Oglethorpe is the perfect place,” said Mr. Millan. “A large portion of our downtown Chattanooga foot traffic comes from North Georgia residents. So, it made sense to bring our presence closer to them. It’s no coincidence that we are situated between a gym and a breast cancer boutique in an area with many physician offices. Hemp products belong in this arena.”

Grass Roots Health stocks a hand-curated selection of hemp-based CBD products. From topical oils and lotions to vapes, tinctures, and edibles.

"Grass Roots maintains a robust catalog of CBD products in a wide variety of consumable types," officials said. "Each product offered has met and exceeded Grass Roots’ strict product testing for safety and efficacy. Grass Roots also employs the area’s most knowledgeable staff to guide every customer in selecting the best products for their personal needs."
