About Dope Botanicals: 

Sisters Nakia and Taahirah Stith have been ‘plant based’ before it was popular. Born into a family with core values of respect for self and community; health and wellness were extremely important tenants in their upbringing. The sisters have over 30 years of experience utilizing food as medicine. After years of being asked to bring their remedies to the public, the Herbalist + Certified Integrated Health Practitioner sisters created Dope Botanicals. Dope Botanicals is an inspired a'plant'ecary™ that creates intentional, plant-based alchemical remedies. In this fast-paced world where wellness can be a trend, filled with commodification, commercialized spirituality, and superficialness -- Dope Botanicals is the real thing. They believe your body is your most luxurious possession. You deserve to feel, and heal, good.

Located in Rittenhouse Square, Dope Botanicals was voted Best Herbal Apothecary by Philadelphia Magazine. Follow us on Instagram @DopeBotanicals
