The Top 10 Best Cannabis Brands in Massachusetts
The Massachusetts cannabis market is easily one of the most robust among the New England States. The Bay State made history as one of the first states along the Eastern Seaboard to legalize cannabis for recreational purposes when sales began back in 2018.
Today, Massachusetts is home to some of the top brands in the cannabis industry. As of February 2023, MA was home to over 400 cannabis business license holders with more licenses in the works. From multi-state dispensaries to large cultivators and product producers, take a look at some of the top cannabis brands in Massachusetts.
Top 10 Most Prolific Cannabis Brands in Massachusetts
Curaleaf has one of the strongest market holdings across the country when it comes to legal cannabis. This brand has been around for over a decade, and, as a multi-state operator (MSO), Curaleaf has a stable presence in markets in more than 20 states, including MA. The brand currently has its own dispensaries in five cities in MA. However, Curaleaf is a vertically integrated retail establishment that produces its own range of product options, including flower, tinctures, and concentrates.
Another MSO, Trulieve is one of the largest cannabis brands to make its way to Massachusetts. Currently, Trulieve has only three cannabis dispensaries in the state in Framingham, Northampton, and Worcester, but more dispensaries are expected in the near future. And, the brand has its own collection of branded products that are distributed to different dispensaries in the state. A few brands owned by Trulieve include Muse, Alchemy, and Modern Flower, and the company produces everything from edibles and concentrates to pre-rolls and flower.
Throughout the state, you can check a dispensary menu and pretty much know you will find a product from Fernway. Fernway is one of the largest cannabis producers in Massachusetts with a full collection of flower, pre-rolls, and vapes. One aspect that has pushed Fernway to the top is the fact that all of its vapes are recyclable, but the brand is also highly regarded for its premium flower that always boasts an exceptional potency range.
Rythm is one of the top cannabis brands in the nation with production facilities in almost a dozen states, but the brand is also one of the most popular names in Massachusetts. Rythm produces one of the state’s most extensive strain libraries that is made up of old cannabis favorites and newer strains chosen specifically for their terpene and cannabinoid lineup. However, this brand is also a top-runner in the state because of its live resin vapes and exceptional-quality concentrates.
5. The Heirloom Collective
As of October 2022, The Heirloom Collective made the list as one of the Ten Hottest Cannabis Brands in Massachusetts published by Marijuana Brand Insights. The Heirloom Collective has made a name for itself with “craft-quality” cannabis grown in MA. As a cultivator, this brand grows some of the most sought-after wholesale flower in MA with dispensary partners dotted across the state. However, The Heirloom Collective also has two of its own dispensaries in Hadley and Bernardston.
6. Happy Valley Flower
Happy Valley Flower is another large-scale cultivator in Massachusetts. The brand’s pre-packaged cannabis can be found in dozens of dispensaries throughout MA. However, Happy Valley Flower is also known for its edibles, concentrates, vape products, and pre-rolls. HVF is well-known for offering high-quality cannabis products with an impressive level of dedication to product quality.
7. Cresco Labs
Cresco Labs is a national brand with a massive collection of owned names under its belt, many of which can be found lining dispensary shelves in Massachusetts. However, the brand’s top MA cannabis products are those bearing the main Cresco name, specifically Cresco flower, concentrates, and live resin vape carts. Cresco has maintained its popularity and growth by offering one of the largest collections of cannabis strains and products.
One of the few brands to make the list that focuses purely on one type of product, Wana is a top-recognized edibles brand in both Canada and the United States. Wana edibles are available in multiple states in the U.S., including MA, where you will find these branded edibles on almost every dispensary menu. Wana is known for product innovation and reliability.
Cannabis drinks are a relatively new sect of the cannabis product market, but there are some brands that are truly making an impression. Levia actually started its journey in Massachusetts and has since grown to be one of the largest edibles brands in the state. With a line of THC-infused seltzers built around delivering specific experiences, Levia has proven to have staying power in the rapidly growing cannabis-drink niche.
10. Berkshire Roots
Berkshire Roots is considered one of the leading cannabis cultivators and product producers in the state. You can find products created by Berkshire Roots at one of their own two MA dispensaries, or at dozens of other wholesale cannabis partners in the state. Berkshire Roots focuses on craft-grown flower cultivated right in Berkshire County. However, the brand also delivers an extensive collection of tinctures, concentrates, edibles, and more created from their own craft flower.
