Good things are here.

Bio•tan•i•ca /bīoˈtanəkə/


1. A plant based wellness + cannabis store. Good things are here. 

2. We are two sisters and two nurses on a mission to bring you powerful and beautifully made plant products, that support positive environmental impacts and human wellness. 

What’s in the name?

Biotanica first opened in 2018 as a plant based wellness store with CBD products to offer a more natural way of supporting health. We started with the word “botanica,” which by basic definition, means “plant store.” Botanica felt fitting knowing we were going to be offering a plant that has already been used to support human health for thousands of years.


But we knew we wanted to identify as more than just a plant store. We wanted to help people learn about a wider value of wellness and to highlight the human piece in this.


So we thought of the word “biology,” which by basic definition, is about the knowledge of “living organisms and their vital processes; it looks at how these organisms form, develop and interact with each other and their environment.”


We blended the two words and ideas together and opened our first store in Otsego, MN in 2018 to offer high quality cannabis products and a trusted space to learn and grow. This became, Biotanica. In 2019, we opened our second location in Brainerd, MN. We have since evolved to include a refill apothecary and sustainable marketplace. 

We love what we do and you will know it through our high quality products, customer service, knowledge, and comfortable spaces. We pride ourselves in assuring that all our products have been personally tested or researched to know they are effective and worth sharing with our customers. We are sincerely grateful for the support and loyalty that our customers offer to our small business in return!

Good things are here, 

Alexa and Karrli
