A must-visit – Astrid Dispensary

A brand new plant-based dispensary has opened in Byron Bay! Nestled within the Habitat Collective, Astrid dispensary is Australia’s first female-led non-pharmacy ‘pharmacy’ with an aim to redefine traditional experiences.

The boutique specialist pharmacist is a pioneer in cannabinoid medicines, skincare brands and gut health remedies.

Designed using green hues, modern interiors, sophisticated curved lines, lush greenery, and natural light the space takes holistic healthcare to new levels.

Astrid Dispensary was founded in 2020 by Lisa Nguyen, a renowned clinical pharmacist with extensive experience in the plant-based medicine industry. She was one of the early advocates of the use of cannabis as a prescription drug. Lisa  opened the first Astrid in Chapel Street in South Yarra in 2020 during the pandemic and the brand has flourished (literally) from here. Astrid is part of her mission to educate and empower people around the safe use of  high-quality plant-based medicines.

Alongside prescription medicines, Astrid offers a curated collection of some of the most revered and evidence-based holistic brands inclusive of Hunter Lab, Skinceuticals, Bear, Nixe, Posie, Clinical Extracts, Essential Parfums, Sans (Ceuticals), and Wanderlust to name a few.

Note: Medical-grade cannabis for prescription was approved in Australia in 2016.
