Highest-rated recreational dispensaries in Massachusetts
Recreational customers in Massachusetts value dispensaries that help out in their community and offer low prices.
253 Millers Falls Road, Turners Falls, MA — recreational
“253 Farmacy truly stands out among other cannabis storefronts in Massachusetts by providing the most interactive purchasing experience. Their deli-style approach made me feel genuinely cared for as a customer. I had the opportunity to ask all my questions, and I even had the freedom to hand-select specific nugs, which was a great personal touch. The strain selection is fantastic, and I appreciate that there are no limits on flower purchases by the eighth. The staff members are not only friendly but also well-educated on the products they offer. If I could rate them higher than 10, I would give them a 15!”
2 Pequod Road, Fairhaven, MA — recreational
“I highly recommend Bask dispensary, where I am a regular customer. The moment I step through the door, I feel welcomed and the staff is consistently helpful, patient, and enthusiastic. The quality of their products is top-notch, and I’ve never been disappointed. The staff members always provide excellent recommendations, and I’m particularly impressed with their incredible merchandise and brand design.”
1 Buxton St., Millville, MA — recreational
“I’ve been a loyal customer at Garden Wonders for a couple of years now. Despite being a Rhode Island native, I’m willing to drive up to an hour from my workplace in Wakefield, RI just to visit this dispensary. Even though there might be other dispensaries along the way, their prices are outrageous and it’s probably crowded. I’d rather spend an extra $15 on gas to reach Garden Wonders. The owners are fantastic and helpful, and their products are of excellent quality.”
182 Brackett Road, Eastham, MA — recreational
“I’ve visited Salty Farmers dispensary four times now, and I must say their customer service is truly exceptional. Every staff member I’ve interacted with has been friendly and well-informed. Despite living an hour’s drive away, I believe it’s well worth the trip. The quality of their flower is consistently top-notch, and I have no hesitation recommending Salty Farmers to anyone looking for a reliable dispensary experience.”
4 Charlesview Rd., Hopedale, MA — recreational
“I recently had my first visit to Caroline’s Cannabis, even though I am a medical patient. However, their prices are so affordable that I opted to pay for retail cannabis instead. I believe in supporting all retail stores as long as the prices are comparable to medical dispensaries. Caroline’s menu is fantastic and caters to both medical and recreational consumers. You’re sure to find something you like here. I find myself checking their menu daily. I highly recommend this place, as you can’t go wrong. The staff is friendly and helpful, and I definitely plan on returning.”

199 Main Street, Blackstone, MA — recreational
“Since I started going to this place, I find myself visiting every few days. I’ve never had a bad experience here, not even once! The prices and deals are excellent, and the budtenders I’ve encountered have been incredibly helpful. They always make sure to inform me about any missed deals. What’s even better is that they remember you and provide personalized service. Even the ID checkers at the door are fantastic people! If I could, I would give this place more than 5 stars. The people, prices, and atmosphere are all amazing”
235 Hartford Turnpike, Shrewbury, MA — recreational
“The Botanist dispensary has a chic and stylish environment with well-organized displays of products. There are separate lines for adult use and medical customers. I had a quick and efficient experience, spending less than 10 minutes in the dispensary. The staff in the front room and at the registers were friendly and eager to assist, even expressing appreciation for my selections. I felt genuinely welcomed there. I will definitely visit again whenever I’m in the area.”
1045 Quaker Hwy, Uxbridge, MA — recreational
“Nature’s Medicine cannabis selection is truly outstanding, and their prices are unbeatable. Although I had to check the menu at the register due to phone issues, the budtender made me feel at ease. He not only answered all my questions but also provided valuable insights into products that could potentially benefit my wife. The entire staff is exceptional, working together and supporting each other instead of frantically rushing around like I’ve witnessed in other places. Although I haven’t paid much attention to Feng Shui in the past, I may reconsider after experiencing the remarkable comfort of their environment. I’m genuinely grateful to have these wonderful folks in town.”
25 Cape Road, Mendon, MA — recreational
“I recommend Green Era dispensary without hesitation. The owner is friendly and well-informed, and the entire staff is incredibly helpful. This dispensary has become my go-to choice because it excels in price, quality, and service. In my opinion, it doesn’t get any better than Green Era.”

“The staff at Cosmopolitan Dispensary are absolutely amazing, and the prices are unbeatable. Plus, the quality of the bud is exceptional, boasting higher THC percentages compared to other dispensaries in the area that I’ve visited in the past (and I’ve been to quite a few!). I’ve made up my mind to make this place my go-to dispensary from now on.”

It has a clean, friendly, and professional environment, among other outstanding qualities. Whether you’re seeking medical or recreational products, this dispensary has it all. Their organization is impressive, and teamwork is a priority. Personally, this is my go-to dispensary.”
230 Harvard Ave, Allston, MA — medical

401 EAST MAIN STREET, Georgetown, MA — medical
“As a senior citizen medical patient, my experiences at Mission are consistently pleasant. The staff is respectful, helpful, and always pleasant to interact with. I greatly appreciate their rewards program and the senior discount, which significantly helps in managing the cost of my medicine. The dispensary’s location, right off I-95 at Rte. #133, is incredibly convenient. Plus, parking is easy to find.”
2001 Washington St Unit B, Hanover, MA — medical
“I truly appreciate that Curaleaf prioritizes patients who rely on cannabis for medicinal purposes. While some dispensaries tend to focus more on recreational customers, I do not have that concern at Curaleaf. The staff members are knowledgeable, pleasant, and go above and beyond to assist patients. The quality of the products is good, and the occasional surprise free gifts are a wonderful gesture. Despite the hour-long journey I have to make to reach Curaleaf (considering I have multiple recreational dispensaries closer to me), I do so with a smile. I want to express my gratitude to all the staff members who contribute to the Curaleaf company. You are truly an asset and make a significant impact on us, the patients.”
1 West St, Fall River, MA — medical
