6. Grass On The Go

Grass On The Go is a bit more niche because it’s focused solely on frozen wheatgrass juice and the amazing benefits it brings. The wheatgrass they sell is liquid, before it’s iced, before it’s turned to liquid again.

The idea is that wheatgrass should be taken in the morning in order to set the right tone for a more focused, healthier, cleaner day. To that end, Grass On The Go grows their own wheatgrass and sells a variety of shots. For example, 25 shots of wheatgrass costs $50.00, with the daily recommended amount being 2-3.

If you’re at all interested in the health benefits of wheatgrass, it might be time to make Grass On The Go your number one "grass dealer" (had to, sorry).

What else? Grass On The Go is on a mission to transform the good people of Houston into wheatgrass converts. To that end, it’s a company that uses educational tools such as blogs and local events to raise awareness of the many benefits of wheatgrass.

Online shopping? Yes.

Address: 2100 W Loop S #800, Houston, TX 77027.
