If you read our blog about how to find the best recreational and medical dispensaries in Massachusetts, you may remember that the Commonwealth's first recreational cannabis dispensary sale took place in Western Massachusetts in 2018. But the support for medical and recreational cannabis in the Berkshires didn’t just stop there!

Temescal Wellness Cannabis Dispensary near the Berkshires

Recreational Cannabis in the Berkshires

Berkshire County is an ideal place for both recreational activities and recreational cannabis! The Berkshires are some of the oldest mountains in the world, dating back about 500 million years. Geologically, the mountains are part of the Appalachian Mountain range. You can actually stay in Massachusetts and hike the Appalachian trail, which runs by one of the best dispensaries in Western Mass, Temescal Wellness in Pittsfield, which is also known as the hub of the Berkshires! More of an on-looker than a hiker? Try a lovely, slow drive through Pittsfield State Forest, or drive up to the highest point in Massachusetts — Mount Greylock.

Museum-goers will swoon over the variety of historic and art museums in the Berkshire County area. Most notably, the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA) is popular in North Adams, MA — right next to our brand new cannabis production facility, where many of your favorite cannabis products in Massachusetts are made! If you dare, you can learn about the haunted history of the Hoosac Tunnel in North Adams. (And if you live in the North Adams area and are interested in a career in cannabis, check out our careers to see if we’re hiring for cannabis production roles!). Additionally, consider visiting the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, which is just 14 miles from our Pittsfield dispensary, and carries the world's largest collection of Norman Rockwell originals.

On Fridays and Saturdays, we’re proud to provide extended hours at our Pittsfield dispensary (9am-8pm). Because — shouldn’t it be easy to swing by your favorite cannabis shop while you explore the beautiful Berkshires?

Offering even more convenience, our Pittsfield dispensary doesn’t require you to hold a medical cannabis ID. After a long day exploring the beautiful Berkshire mountains and museums, you can easily order cannabis online via our website, pick up your recreational cannabis order with express checkout, spark up your pre-rolled joint or favorite cannabis product, and relax to the soothing sounds of the quiet Berkshires. So, skip that “rec shop near me” search and come say “high” to our friendly and efficient budtenders at Temescal Wellness in Pittsfield!
