The Best Medical Cannabis Products in Massachusetts

September 24, 2018

In recreational-ready-but-not-really Massachusetts, it can be challenging to incorporate cannabis into your plans. But as a medical user, I’m grateful for access to products that make the difference between joining my friends on the Cape or staying home due to chronic illness.

Find the best cannabis for you. Check dispensaries nearby.

The products here can be found in two medical dispensaries (Sira Naturals and New England Treatment Access) who are fully engaged in the adult sales application process with the Cannabis Control Commission.

If you’re currently a patient, this is your guide to a sneak preview of which products stand a strong chance of being available to everyone.

Check these menus for it:

Ever wish for an infused treat to just taste like a treat—nothing dank or obtrusive? Then nosh on NETA’s Dose Bar with 52% Belgian dark chocolate in rich, easy-dose bites.

ZootBites Brownies

Check these menus for it:

When you want a classic, nothing beats the 10mg THC, potent, and very tasty ZootBites Brownies available in Caramel Espresso. These are super popular for their easy dosing, discreet size, and are sure to be a favorite when recreational shops open. No more crying into cannabutter you whipped up yourself and wondering why your brownies taste too weedy—two nibbles and you’re good to go.

Check these menus for it:  

If you want a small, quick dose of 5mg THC that plays exactly like hard candy, is no more conspicuous than a case of mints, and doesn’t leave you with dry-desert mouth, then reach for ZootRocks. This sweet treat offers strong flavors similar to a sophisticated Jolly Rancher.

RUBI Kit and Grape Rubi Pod

Check these menus for it:

One hit from RUBI was perfectly adequate to knock out pain from medical issues—and it’s extremely low-maintenance to boot. Convenience and lack of mess make this pen and pod the perfect pick for discreet consumption. Grab on od their high-quality, strain-specific pods like Lemon Skunk, Clementine, and Platinum Cookies.

LIVE Rosin: Sour Banana Sherbet

Check these menus for it:

I’m barely a dabber—my butane lighter was bought for crème brûlée shenanigans. But Sira’s Live Rosin: Sour Banana Sherbet was ridiculously easy to work with as compared to wax or shatter. The THC on this beast lands at 80.00% and runs $40/0.5g. A little goes a long way, and while the flavor didn’t hit me quite like a Banana Sherbet, the sour profile is certainly present. This one wins my vote for efficiency and most pleasant handling consistency.
