About Us

The Holistic Connection was founded with the mission of delivering cannabis-based alternative health and wellness solutions to our community and beyond. As a licensed medical cannabis grower for over seven years in California. We’ve gained invaluable knowledge in producing CBD products. With that said, we meet the stringent regulatory provisions set out by the Medical and Adult-Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (“MAUCRSA”).

Moving back to our home base in Middle Tennessee, we were inspired to utilize this experience and knowledge. So we have created an offer of pure and vetted hemp-derived recreational cannabis products in a young and wholly unregulated market. Not only that, but we’ve created a retail experience around quality over quantity.

All our products, such as CBD gummies, hemp oils & tinctures, CBD edibles, CBD vape oil, extracts, and hemp flower are cultivated and manufactured following the safety and quality guidelines set out in MAUCRSA. While it’s not yet required by law and is more expensive and time-intensive, we believe it’s the right thing to do. We believe it makes a huge difference in our products and customers’ well-being.

We currently have 9 locations around Middle Tennessee in Nashville, Cool Springs, 8th South, Belle Meade, Brentwood, Hermitage, Smyrna, Murfreesboro, Clarksville, and Cookeville.

Stop by any of our retail stores and have a dab experience, in addition, please feel free to browse our selection of edibles, flowers, extracts, skin CBD products and ask questions. Talk with one of our bud experts, also known as the Bud Tenders, and let their expertise guide you to the right hemp-derived recreational cannabis products. Our people are passionate about our high-quality CBD products and our goal is to help you find what will suit you best.

If you prefer to purchase from the comfort of your home, shop our online store for legal THC and recreational cannabis products! Thank you for your interest in our CBD and Legal THC products and your consideration of our high-quality Craft Cannabis, we greatly appreciate it.

In a rapidly growing and ever-evolving cannabis industry, you have to be on top of your game at all times. Our process, Tri-Star Medical’s chain of custody management, and proprietary formulations are second to none. Our partner and flagship brand, Tri-Star Medical, follows a unique and particular growing method to ensure quality and consistency. Check out their process below and see why we stand behind their methodology.


It all starts with our cannabis farms in rural Tennessee, where our master growers cultivate high-potency hemp strains free from pesticides and contaminants. We derive exceptional hemp flower from sustainable practices. Our horticulture expertise for the extraction process exceeds industry standards. We never use pesticides or GMOs. Furthermore, Our core belief is that healthy plants are grown naturally produce the most beneficial compounds for health and wellness. Our craft cannabis plants and dedication to sustainability are the foundation of our entire process.


Once we have a premium harvest, the cannabis flower goes to the lab for testing and extraction. Our lab technicians have PhDs in organic chemistry; they take extra special care to preserve beneficial cannabinoids and terpenes during the extraction process. In conclusion, the end products range from CBD isolates with 0% Delta-9 THC to full-spectrum blends, including as many original plant compounds as possible.


Our Craft Cannabis products are handcrafted here in Nashville in our commercial grade kitchen and production facility. Flower is hand trimmed and packed with care, while our edibles are made using recipes perfected over time and experience. These products are infused with our freshly pressed hemp extract and delivered to the stores within days of production, ensuring freshness and potency with every purchase.
