South Texas Natural Wellness is home to a variety of third-party lab tested CBD, hemp products and employees that are educated on these natural supplements and the assortment of health benefits that they can bring about.
Owner, DJ Swan, first encountered CBD products while searching for pain relief for her husband’s back pain. After continuous doctors’ visits and experimenting with a variety of products and medicines that brought no relief, they began doing their own research where they soon discovered the health-regulated use of CBD.

Swan stated, “When we finally landed on some that worked for him, it led us to realize this is something we need. We don’t have that here.”
