Looking for a Massachusetts dispensary?

Adult-use cannabis has been legal in Massachusetts since 2016, and the state has worked hard throughout the past six years to expand and establish its approach to the legal market.

As a result, Massachusetts’ cannabis has skyrocketed in quality since its underground days, and it boasts a wide variety of dispensaries that offer several high-quality and beneficial products for consumers in need. 

This roundup features some of the best dispensaries in Massachusetts, from product availability, quality, and diversity to customer service and significant emphasis on culture, community, and much-needed equity in the industry.

1. Happy Valley

With locations in East Boston and Gloucester, Happy Valley is one of the most popular and well-known cannabis dispensaries in Massachusetts. The dispensary has their own line of cannabis products, including concentrates, edibles, flower, pre-rolls, vape oils, and wellness products, all grown at their Gloucester cultivation facility.

The company is committed to cannabis community nurturement, and they vehemently support the decriminalization and legalization of the plant throughout the U.S. through philanthropy, sustainability, mental health and wellness awareness, and cultural initiatives.

One such initiative is Happy Valley Experiences, where the team partners with some of the best local musicians, artists, concerts, venues, and festivals to marry music to cannabis in a way that is exclusive to their community.

Described as “just buds, growing buds,” Harbor House is a minority-owned company that grows, manufacturers, and retails premium, genetically-driven cannabis out of their Chelsea facility.

The team primarily employs cannabis experts from the local community, mainly consisting of Latino operators with the ultimate goal of uplifting and supporting minorities in the space. 

Harbor House focuses heavily on genetics: their cultivation team handpicks each strain to ensure it’s been hunted and grown to their high quality of standards, honing in on terpene profiles, potency, and overall consumer appeal.

The team commits a portion of their resources to advocating for fundamental change, creating pathways for entrepreneurs of color, collaborating with Black Cannabusiness to create an educational series on the need for increased minority ownership in cannabis, and much more.
