Find cannabis near you. No gardening required.
This Franklin County grow store opened a couple years ago on the heels of medical cannabis legalization in the state. With no similar store within 30 miles or more, Western Mass knew it had found a niche. Started by two local men who worked in green construction, the store has gained a reputation for stocking its shelves with products its customers love, which has them coming back repeatedly. Customer service and expertise are other reasons this store remains popular. Frequent shoppers say that the owners, Chance Strom and Joshua Lagreze, go out of their way to make customers feel comfortable asking questions and routinely provide expert advice.
