It may be time to create a category for hemp and CBD shops because there seems to be a trend for them to use art to make themselves stand out. This is Hempsterville, which is, you guessed it, is on Porter Road just off Riverside Drive. It’s by Eric Bass, who usually signs his work Mobe Oner. He’s already got one of these CBD/hemp shops under his belt, LabCanna on Gallatin, featured in CBD, Street art style. Besides the shout out to Riverside and Porter, the mural includes the iconic Batman Building and the railroad trestle that soars over nearby Shelby Park. If this industry continues to grow, I suspect we will see more hemp-related art in the coming months and years.
(The odd crop is a result of making this fit Facebook’s sharing rules, which crop everything to be the shape of a billboard, or a door if the photo is tall and thin. Facebook needs to revise that policy.)
Located at 1601B Riverside Drive. The mural and the shop actually face Porter Road. There is some parking at the building and some street parking across the road.
