What a difference a couple of years makes. Where once we had to travel far afield to hit up an adult-use dispensary, Greater Boston is now awash in new choices weed shops, including many national chains. But we’re still most enamored by all the locally grown businesses in and around the city and the social missions that many of them are driven by.
With so many new weed shops to choose from, there’s no better time to get out there and meet the city’s newest budtenders. From shops that focus on edibles to places to get flower or pre-rolls, here are the best weed dispensaries in Boston and the surrounding area.
You have to love dispensaries that have decorative themes. The two outlets of Bud’s Goods are designed as a throwback diner (Worcester) and a movie theater (Abington)—but there’s nothing nostalgic about the products, which includes Lil’ Buds, one of the state’s first white-label offerings (i.e. more affordable). And look for the Watertown location coming soon, design scheme TBD.
