See what makes one of the first legal cannabis dispensaries so popular
People have been using cannabis to heal themselves for thousands of years. There are many uses for the quick-growing plant and it has been noted as a beneficial medicine for all sorts of ailments. However you decide to indulge, cannabis is known to help with depression, anxiety, eating disorders, sleep apnea, trauma and much more. Cannabis has long been seen as the “gateway drug,” but research indicates that it may actually decrease the need for opioid pain killers-and help wean a person off of addictive drugs. The cancer-fighting cannabinoids also help reduce the size of tumors and are being studied for anti-cancer effects.
SLO County’s only locally owned and operated retail storefront cannabis dispensary, Natural Healing Center, carries a wide variety of cannabis products and excellent, 1-on-1 service. CEO Helios Dayspring said, “Natural Healing Center is based out of Grover Beach, CA and is the largest cannabis operator on the Central Coast. We operate a retail storefront in Grover Beach, with new stores opening in San Luis Obispo, Morro Bay, Lemoore and Turlock in 2020. We also operate cultivation sites, distribution, and processing facilities.” The company was founded by Helios Dayspring, a local of Morro Bay, who previously ran the award-winning delivery service House of Holistics prior to Prop 64 bringing cannabis into the adult-use market. NHC opened the first cannabis campus which provides testing, processing, distribution, and retail space and aims to help the local industry as a whole.
NHC’s location is a beautiful 6,000 sq ft high-end dispensary, with over 1,800 items, including non-psychoactive products that don’t give the traditional “high” that cannabis is known for. It is a great place to learn about cannabis and all of its forms and uses. The dispensary hires only the most rigorously educated budtenders and staff. Their recommendations help customers to enjoy the products effectively and moderately. Unlike alcoholic beverages, marijuana has no hangover the next day and may help people actually sleep better.
Cannabis can be found in non-psychoactive strains and product formulations and can help with sleep problems, anxiety, PTSD, relieve chronic pain, nausea, calm muscle spasms associated with multiple sclerosis, and gain relief from fibromyalgia. Cannabis is also a well-known anti-seizure medicine that has very useful benefits and can be taken without causing the high from the psychoactive compound, THC.
Shop an extensive menu of flowers, edibles, tinctures, topicals and much more. Stop by the store in Grover Beach for expert consultation and advice on which strain would suit you best. Dayspring said, “Grover Beach has become the hub of the cannabis industry on the Central Coast and is quickly becoming a destination point for cannabis tourism. You can see the success in fact that approximately 12% of Grover Beach’s entire city budget is now derived from cannabis tax revenue. SLO County also has the perfect climate to grow the best cannabis in the world.”
“Cannabis truly is a plant for everyone. The budtenders take visitors on a tour, like at a museum, where they showcase all the products like a tour guide. NHC is able to connect with people of all ages, backgrounds, and demographics to make them feel comfortable together,” he said.
Cannabis is more normalized than ever and he’s seen cannabis enhance the older generations in the community. Medically, and socially, people are learning more and finding out the benefits, and customers bring in family and friends to show them these amazing products. See the barriers break down and preconceived notions become the past. People are now cheerleaders for the cannabis industry.
