Coming to their products, National Holistic Healing Center sells various kinds of both indica and sativa dominant strains to their consumers. They sell a variety of flowers, pre rolls, edibles, concentrates and topicals. Let’s have a look at some of them.


When it comes to flowers, a few of the store’s best selling products are varieties of flowers. Here are a few examples. 

The Do Si Dos #9 is a staff pick and one of the most popular flowers on the National Holistic Healing Center’s menu.

The flower is a majorly indica dominant hybrid, with the division being 70% indica. It is formed by making a cross between Girl Scout Cookies and Face Off OG. The flavor of the flower is said to be quite pungent and at the same time floral, which creates a nice balance in the overall flavor profile. It is usually given to patients that have stress, anxiety and mood enhancement needs. It gives the user a relaxed effect that is felt through the whole body. 1/8th of an ounce costs about $56.

Another one of their popular items is the Hindu Kush. The Hindu Kush flower contains 24% THC and is another indica dominant flower. The strain type is called landrace indica. The flavor is said to be quite floral as well, but this time with a more earthy feel to it. It has slight hints of pungency to it as well. This flower is given to patients who have issues like cramps, muscle spasms and insomnia, among others. Each unit, i.e. 1g, costs the user $12.

Pre Rolls

Pre rolls are also one of the National Holistic Healing Center dispensary’s more popular items on the menu. Let’s take a look at some of their more popular pre roll options.

The 0.35g Chem D is a popular option on the menu. It is a hybrid pre roll which contains about 24% THC in it. It comes in a pack of 3, which are all individually tubed. The hybrid is dominated mostly by indica. It is formed by crossing Chem 91 and ChemDog. The flavor is said to be quite earthy, but there are tones of citrus and indeed, diesel mixed within the flower. It is usually given to people who suffer from stress and anxiety. It is said to have a relaxed effect on the user combined with a feeling of euphoria that leaves the user feeling quite relaxed and happy.

The 0.35g Hindu Kush Pre Roll is also one of their more popular items. Again, it is indica dominant and contains 24% THC. The strain that the pre roll contains is the landrace indica. The flavor of the flower is said to be quite earthy and floral, whilst also having a slightly skunky feel to it as well. It is recommended to patients who suffer from issues like cramps, aches, spasms and gastrointestinal problems as well. It is said to have a hazy effect on the consumer, which leaves them feeling sleepy and blissful by the time that they finish using the item.


Concentrates are another one of National’s popular categories of items.

The Bruce Banner Dry Sift Kief is a collection of trichome glands that are found in cannabis flowers that are quite mature. The trichome glands are identified by their resinous quality, that allows them to be used in order to create this concentrate. The special thing about the sift kief is that it is handmade. Cannabis flowers are rubbed onto mesh screens, which remove all the resinous trichome glands from the flowers along with any kind of unnecessary matter. 

The concentrate is formed by a cross of OG Kush and Strawberry Diesel. It contains 68.4% THC.  This concentrate is named as Bruce Banner due to its green shade, like the Hulk. It has a herbal flavor which is intermixed with tones of diesel and sweet berry.

Classic Cookies Live Rosin is another one of the store’s popular concentrates. Rosin is an extract of cannabis that contains no solvents; it is made solely by using heat and pressure. The plant is basically placed in between two heated pads, which are then compressed to give out oil. It is formed by crossing Durban Poison and OG Kush

The strain is a hybrid which is mostly indica dominant. It is usually given to patients who experience a loss in appetite and nausea. The flavor profile is said to be sweet like a dessert which is combined with hints of lemon, cherry and mint. It contains about 82% THC. The terpenes it contains are Cedrene, Myrcene and Ocimene.
