The Idea

Botanica cbd is a plant based health store located in Evanston, Illinois. Our goals are simple; we curate the best and highest quality whole hemp & cbd products available. We attempt to educate the curious, guide the open-minded and enlighten our customers about the benefits of whole hemp products.



We continually review academic research studies that are driving greater acceptance of natural plant based solutions such as cbd and whole hemp products to restore vigorous health and diminish our reliance on pharmaceutical drugs.



We eat healthy, shop at whole foods, exercise, try to sleep 8 hours a night and reduce the amount of stress in our lives. And when we aren’t able to do all of those things, we rely on whole hemp products to help us maintain balance.
