Herban Mother

607 NW 28th St., Suite A



Since the state allowed the sale of cannabidiol this year, stores selling the hemp-based products, which do not contain the psychoactive chemical found in marijuana, have popped up all over the city. Herban Mother, run by Hector and Mary Najar, puts an emphasis on being organically grown. Herban Mother offers gift baskets in a variety of balms, tinctures and gel-caps that have benefits as pain relievers and more.
