New Financial Wellness Center Opens in San Diego Promise Zone

 California Coast Credit Union has announced that a new Financial Wellness Center has opened at the Logan Heights Community Development Corporation to serve residents and small businesses within the San Diego Promise Zone.

A grand opening reception took place on Wednesday, May 10 for community partners to visit the location and learn about the opportunities for no-cost financial education and coaching now available to individuals and families in the area. At the event, attendees heard from Todd Lane, President and CEO of Cal Coast Credit Union, and Monte Jones, CEO of Logan Heights Community Development Corporation, about this meaningful partnership and how vital the center is in a community otherwise void of financial institutions. In addition, State Senator Steve Padilla representing District 18, recognized this milestone for its commitment to improving the wellbeing of area residents.

“Cal Coast Credit Union is committed to bringing financial access to the Promise Zone so affordable financial products and services are convenient for all individuals and businesses. We are focused on removing the barriers that exclude people from the benefits of participating in the mainstream financial system. Our goal is to provide a path for everyone in our community to achieve financial health and independence to help them live their best lives,” said Todd Lane, Cal Coast’s President and CEO.

“It is with great excitement that Logan Heights CDC becomes the home to the Cal Coast Credit Union Financial Wellness Center in the Greater Logan Heights neighborhood. It is partnerships and resources such as these that move our communities forward. For years, the Greater Logan Heights and San Diego Promise Zone neighborhoods have faced inequitable access to financial institutions and trusted banking resources for our residents and small businesses in the community. This is a historical moment because our neighborhoods currently have zero financial institutions present in our community. With this official opening, we invite our residents, families, and small businesses for the first time to connect with the Cal Coast team and receive FREE, accessible, and no-cost financial resources at their neighborhood non-profit, Logan Heights CDC,” added Monte A. Jones, Logan Heights CDC CEO.

In 2016, the San Diego Promise Zone became one of 22 federally designated Promise Zones in the United States and one of only four in California. The area covers 6.4 square-miles that spans from East Village and Barrio Logan east to Encanto and is home to the City’s most culturally rich and ethnically diverse neighborhoods, but also some of the most disadvantaged and under-resourced communities where unemployment is high. More than 80,000 San Diegans live in the Promise Zone.

Established by San Diego teachers in 1929, California Coast Credit Union is the longest-serving financial institution based in San Diego County. With more than $3 billion in assets, the credit union serves nearly 200,000 members through its local network of 25 branches and 60 shared branch locations, and 30,000 fee-free ATMs nationwide.

Brookside CBD Wellness Center Is Providing Potent THCA Flower in Kodak, Knoxville and Pigeon Forge

Kodak, TN, 24th April 2023, ZEX PR WIRE, Brookside CBD Wellness Center, a CBD and hemp dispensary, is excited to announce the introduction of their potent THCA flower to the Kodak, Knoxville, and Pigeon Forge markets. 

THCA is an acronym that stands for tetrahydrocannabinolic acid. This cannabinoid is a precursor to THC, the psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant. While THC is sometimes associated with psychoactive effects, THCA itself does not contain any psychotropic properties. However, it is believed to possess a range of potential therapeutic benefits that may help individuals to manage the symptoms of various conditions.

THCA flower is often used by people who are looking for the potential health benefits of consuming cannabis without experiencing the psychoactive effects caused by THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). THCA is a non-psychoactive compound that is found in raw cannabis plants, which means that it might not make the consumer feel “high” or intoxicated like THC can. THCA has been reported by people who have consumed it to have various potential benefits, such as anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, and antiemetic effects. Some people also believe that THCA flower may help with conditions like chronic pain, anxiety, and depression. Additionally, THCA flower can be consumed in various forms, such as infused into food or brewed into tea, making it a flexible choice for people who want to add cannabis to their wellness regimen.

Brookside CBD Wellness Center, a pharmacist-owned and operated CBD store in Tennessee, has recognized the demand for quality THCA flower and has answered the call by stocking potent THCA flower in its store, thereby making it available to people in Kodak, Knoxville, and Pigeon Forge. This makes Brookside CBD Wellness Center a reliable source of THCA flower for people living nearby who are looking to incorporate it into their wellness routine. Whether people are searching for an all-natural therapy that could have the potential for relief from pain, anxiety, or depression or simply looking to explore the therapeutic potential of cannabis, Brookside CBD Wellness Center has them covered.

With the introduction of THCA flower to the Kodak, Knoxville, and Pigeon Forge markets, customers can now have access to a high-quality product that is renowned for its potency and effectiveness. The company takes pride in producing pure and potent products that satisfy the expectations of their customers.

The THCA flower provided by Brookside CBD Wellness Center is extracted from hemp plants that are grown on a local farm. The hemp plants are carefully harvested by experienced workers and processed using state-of-the-art techniques to create a high-quality concentrated product that is perfect for vaping. With the quality and purity of these products, customers can feel safe and confident in using the products available at Brookside CBD Wellness Center.

“Customers looking for THC flower nearby do not have to search further. We have opened our doors to customers in Kodak, Knoxville, and Pigeon Forge looking for high-quality THCA flowers. As a leading producer of hemp products, we also provide other premium products like CBD oils and tinctures. We ensure to stay ahead of the curve and provide only the highest quality products that are safe, effective, and compliant with all state-level regulations.” – Kelly & Rhonda Snyder, co-founders of Brookside CBD Wellness Center.

While some people think that CBD and THCA flowers are the same, there is a difference in the levels of cannabinoids present in each plant. CBD flowers have higher concentrations of cannabidiol, which offers a range of potential therapeutic benefits. THCA flower, on the other hand, contains high levels of tetrahydrocannabinolic acid, a cannabinoid that has no psychoactive effects. While both CBD and THCA flowers have potential health benefits, they offer distinct experiences and should be chosen based on individual needs and preferences. The opinion of a medical professional may be helpful in making this determination. Cannabis products may cause an interaction with an existing medication when taken together, which is why it is always best to consult a medical professional before using any cannabis product.

When choosing to buy THCA flower, customers often have to worry about finding a reliable supplier. It is essential that customers can verify the quality and potency of the products they are buying. The company guarantees that all products meet high standards of quality, purity, and potency. Customers will be able to use their items with confidence thanks to this.

People living in or near Kodak, Knoxville, or Pigeon Forge shouldn’t be hesitant to stop by Brookside CBD Wellness Center for all of their THCA flower requirements because the company is dedicated to offering top-notch goods and first-rate customer service. With top-of-the-line products and knowledgeable staff, Brookside CBD Wellness Center is the perfect place for anyone looking for a reliable source of THCA flower. From bulk orders to single grams, they have it all!

The company provides some of the most potent THC flower on the market, guaranteeing customers an unparalleled vaping experience. The products are not only potent but also packed with beneficial terpenes that enhance the user experience. Brookside CBD Wellness Center is dedicated to provide the best hemp products to its clients. With the introduction of potent THCA flower in Kodak, Knoxville, and Pigeon Forge, Brookside CBD Wellness Center is well positioned to be the preferred supplier for customers in search of high-quality THCA flower.

For further inquiries about Brookside CBD Wellness Center’s products or to place an order, customers can visit their website or their brick-and-mortar store. The customer care representatives at the store are available to ensure customers have a seamless buying experience.

Wellness Community Welcomes Holistic Practice to the Triad

Last Friday, Carolina Core Wellness (CCW) excitedly announced a critical partnership with Premier Holistic Services (PHS). PHS is the world’s first Holistic Dental Alliance Organization.

GREENSBORO, N.C.May 16, 2022PRLog — Last Friday, Carolina Core Wellness (CCW) excitedly announced a critical partnership with Premier Holistic Services (PHS).  PHS is the world’s first Holistic Dental Alliance Organization; PHS optimizes existing holistic medical and dental practices and strategically creates plans with providers to build out different forms of holistic health practices.

The partnership between CCW and PHS was formed to bring both groups’ visions of a whole-person, holistic healthcare network to fruition. CCW will serve as a physical, centralized home for a wide variety of holistic and integrative providers such as Allergists, Cardiologists, Chiropractors, Pain Management Providers, Counselors, Massage Therapists, Pediatric Providers, Acupuncturists, and Women’s Health Providers. CCW has already announced its partnership with Triad Lifestyle Medicine, a local lifestyle medicine practice. CCW’s next big goal was to partner with a holistic dental practice, for as it currently stands, Triad residents are forced to travel to other parts of the state to receive these services. The momentous handshake that took place today between Carolina Core Wellness and Premier Holistic Services is the next HUGE step in securing CCW’s vision of a single location where ALL of a patient’s health and wellness needs can be met under one roof – medical, dental, and more.

PHS partners include:

Dr. John Kempter – DDS, FICOI, AIAOMT. Partner of Premier Holistic Services. Dentist and Owner of Kempter Holistic Dentistry, a highly successful dental practice located in Concord and Charlotte, North Carolina that focuses on Complete Holistic Dentistry.

Dr. Ralph Mensah – DDS, FICOI, AIAOMT. Partner of Premier Holistic Services. Dentist and Owner of Integrative Holistic Dentistry, a highly successful dental practice located in Chapel Hill, North Carolina that focuses on Complete Holistic Dentistry.

PHS has several goals they plan to accomplish at CCW in the Triad and other locations: provide highly effective clinical and administrative support for holistic dental practices, facilitate unrivaled patient care, optimize practice management and provide a positive experience for both practice participants and the patients they serve. These milestones will be executed through holistic dental services for patients, as well as practice structure for their facilities such as comprehensive holistic Dental office training, healthy culture development, brand development, recruitment and associate training, and dental service organization benefits.

Carolina Core Wellness is located at 4000 Ossi Court in North High Point. The building will have the capacity to hold approximately 30 wellness practices.  Jeff Mabe, Chief Operating Officer of Carolina Core Wellness, believes that this single destination will be the area’s new blueprint for wellness.

In addition to Triad Lifestyle Medicine and Premier Holistic Services, Carolina Core Wellness is seeking to add Holistically-minded Allergists, Cardiologists, Chiropractors, Pain Management Providers, Counselors, Massage Therapists, Pediatric Providers, Women’s Health Providers, Acupuncturists and more within this wellness community. Fourth Elm Construction is managing the construction process.

Carolina Core Wellness will also be the home of Core Coffee, High Point’s newest all-local coffee shop featuring a full-service espresso bar using Fortuna Coffee, wellness-minded provisions from makers located right in the Triad area, healthy meal options, plus cold-pressed juice from the very popular Village Juice & Kitchen, with more seasonal offerings handcrafted on-site. With space for meetings, social gatherings, or remote work, Core Coffee can be your new go-to for a guilt-free start to your day or a place to sit and stay awhile and enjoy the convenience of health and wellness while you work. Core Coffee Chief Operating Officer Danielle Blanton shared, “We’re excited to bring a unique offering like this to the Triad, and we hope to see you soon!”

When asked what led Carolina Core Wellness to undergo such measures for the health and wellness community, Mabe stated, “We believe holistic, patient-first care should be more easily accessible to residents of North Carolina. We believe that these providers should find it easier to refer and network with one another. Patients should not have to drive all over the state for their various wellness needs. It should be as easy as walking down the hall. We have also observed that this part of the Triad needs a community space for remote work, meetings, and events that are both welcoming and supportive of wellness. We believe in supporting the growth of entrepreneurs. If you are a wellness patient, get ready to enjoy a wellness destination like no other in summer 2022 and be prepared to have all your wellness needs meeting in one welcoming location!”

Whether it is stopping by Core Coffee, where you can simply enjoy a cup of coffee in a warm, cozy environment, or benefit from the other various services offered within the facility, Carolina Core Wellness wants their providers and patients to feel right at home. And with its pivotal partnerships with Premier Holistic Services and Triad Lifestyle Medicine,  CCW is looking forward to building a stronger view of total holistic health.


At Carolina Core Wellness our vision is to create a community of wellness providers that care for and nurture the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs of those living in the Piedmont Triad area. From maintaining optimal health to coping with chronic conditions, these providers play a critical role in an individual’s wellness journey. Carolina Core Wellness provides a unique community space for Holistic providers across multiple disciplines designed to support these providers on a level that allows them to fully focus their attention on their patients – not administrative details. We are here to promote and support the utilization of this community of wellness providers and their ability to better serve patients regardless of their needs.
