Dr. Chanda Macias is not only a mother of four and an extremely savvy businesswoman, but she is also the CEO and owner of possibly the districts’ number one dispensary. National Holistic Healing Center—or NHHC—has been her brainchild for many years and was created using a dichotomy of underground mentality versus a business school mentality. Although Macias’ role is now centered on strategy and development, as well as patient interactions, her treatment methodology derives from her scientific background as a Biomedical Research Scientist.
With NHHC, Macias has used her knowledge on the cell signaling transduction pathways that are associated with different diseases and underlying conditions, and has aligned them with strains that can induce protein expression for healthcare. When entering the NHHC, you can expect premium assistance with ailment-strain alignment as the dispensary offers their patients the finest organic strains, patient education and support services, as well as an assortment of edibles and infused products.

Located conveniently and discreetly in Dupont Circle, NHHC offers a series of classes, seminars, and workshops dedicated to the cultivation of flower strains, and specific fundamentals essential for a robust home grow. Cooking classes are also available and are taught by talented chefs who will teach you how to create infused edibles that will appeal to anyone’s taste pallet. Lastly, the National Holistic Healing Center also has classes focused on the holistic healing benefits of a natural lifestyle. These classes include best practices in flower strain alignment and treatment, herbal enhancement and effects on the body, as well as dietary and physical consistency for a natural balance.
Holistic healing classes and organic strains are just a few reasons why Dr. Macias and the NHHC are thriving so well in the district. However, women—and specifically African American women looking to grow in the cannabis industry should look to businesswomen like Macias for inspiration. Chanda Macias is only 1 of 7 African Americans in the dispensary business in the cannabis industry, and she is also just 1 of 2 African American women in the entire industry within this sector of the business. For future African American women cultivators or dispensary owners—seek out women business owners like Dr. Macias to learn more about the industry and how to get ahead in such a male dominant field.
