Ocala-based Greene’s Reserve, a company that creates a hemp alternative to tobacco, is the first hemp company in history to sign with NASCAR as a vendor.

Greene’s Reserve, which sells hemp snuff in natural, wintergreen, menthol, mango and strawberry kiwi flavors, can now sell its products at events on several NASCAR-owned properties, including Daytona International Speedway, Homestead-Miami Speedway and Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama.

The company, which has its manufacturing plant at 3373 NW 10th St. #200 in Ocala, advertises a healthier alternative to tobacco with no nicotine or carcinogens. It plans to open two more distribution sites in Dallas and Las Vegas in the future.
