There are four days until 4/20. While in New York State it is now legal to smoke pot and possess up to three ounces (which is way more than enough for your own at-home festivities) you’ll have to cross the border into Massachusetts for official dispensary celebrations. We’ve rounded up the Berkshires marijuana dispensaries that are offering deals and new products in honor of 4/20.
Celebrate 4/20 at Berkshire Roots’ Pittsfield location with local musicians Tony Lee Thomas, Jenny Porter, and Melissa Brinton, favorite vendors like Betty's Eddies organic fruit-based edibles, Fernway Vapor, and Kushley, plus a Chillin & Grillin Food truck selling grilled cheeses and other food on Tuesda. And on Saturday, check out the tie-dye air streamer from the Garcia Hand Picked cannabis brand with Ozzies food truck. They are also offering six new products and special branded limited-edition merch. The dispensary specializes in edible culture, and offers a range of cannabis-infused treats and foods online. The group won Best Edible in the 2020 Commonwealth Cannabis Competition for its culinary efforts.
Canna Provisions is marking 4/20 with the public debut of their iconic director of cultivation Greg “Chemdog” Krzanowski’s first legal line, Smash Hits, which will be carried exclusively at Canna. Krzanowski will be onsite at both the Lee and Holyoke Canna Provisions locations with his growers for a meet-and-greet plus merch signing and photo ops. There will also be food trucks and live music.
Calyx Berkshire in the heart of downtown Great Barrington is gearing up for their first 420, with three new strains over 30% off, plus a fun day in-store with raffles and prizes in-store. This women-owned dispensary, named after the female part of the cannabis plant, offers a wide range of products, including deli-style choices, pre-rolls, vape cartridges, tinctures and topicals, and a selection of edibles.
For the 10 days leading up to 420, Rebelle is offering a different deal every day, including free merch, sales, and limited edition items. Yesterday, if you purchased four eighths, you got a ‘No One Should Be in Prison For Weed’ t-shirt for free. This weekend, customers spending more than $420 will get complimentary limited edition legalization merch. This female and minority-led business donates three percent of its net profits toward expunging low-level cannabis convictions and empowering its community. They offer flowers, pre-rolls, topicals, vapes, edibles, and tinctures, and a wide range of accessories and branded merch also for sale.
Temescal Wellness is celebrating 4/20 live and in-person at all three of their Massachusetts locations in Framingham, Hudson, and Pittsfield, as well as on their website with sales. They are offering exclusive accessory bundles on in-store purchases of $200 or more, lots of different cannabis products, and several promotions for medical patients in-store. Their Hudson store location is partnering with Shishkaberrys of New England’s food truck––offering their standard berry kabob menu with a special 4/20 menu of half kabobs for $5 for Temescal Wellness customers. Buy a skewer and show your receipt when making a cannabis purchase to be eligible for a special promotion.
In honor of 4/20, Theory Wellness is offering its medical cannabis customers a sweet weeklong deal: spend $150 on a medical cannabis order, and they add a gram of flower or a 4-pack of Hi5 for just a penny. They’re also offering bundles of five .75mg pre-rolls for $40. And on 4/20 itself, medical patients that spend $50 on a medical cannabis order can get a 4-pack of Hi5 for a penny.
Silver Therapeutics is celebrating 4/20 with price cuts on over 30 items between their locations in Williamstown and Orange, Massachusetts. The weed of the week in their Orange store is the Power Africa––crossed between Durban Poison, Skunk #1 and Haze––a Sativa dominant hybrid best for daytime usage.
