Abandon all notions of a dorm room, or a bodega — Maryland’s Curio Wellness vaults over its national peers with a bona fide health spa embedded in a Baltimore-area medical dispensary.

Join The Hash podcast co-host Max Savage Levenson on a tour of Curio in Timonium, Maryland, where high-end yoga, acupuncture, and massage work synergistically with the herbs grown, extracted, and sold on-site.

“Sixty percent of the space is community-oriented wellness. You don’t have to be a patient,” said Curio co-founder Wendy Bronfein.
