Medical & Recreational Cannabis Frequently Asked Questions

I have questions about vape cartridges.
At Temescal Wellness we take the health of our guests seriously and are concerned about the recent illnesses and deaths associated with vaping.
Please know we do not use Vitamin E Acetate or propylene glycol in any of our cartridge products.
All of our cartridge products are tested by an independent certified laboratory for residual solvents, heavy metals, and microbial contaminants in compliance with state testing standards.
We use the highest quality cannabis and plant based ingredients in all our vape cartridges and have no reports of any health issues related to our products.
We recognize that there is limited research available on vaping and we will continue to monitor the situation and provide as much information to you as possible to allow you to make the best choice for yourself when considering cannabis consumption methods.

What types of cannabis products do/will you provide?

We have a wide array of flowers (the part of the plant that is harvested, dried, and used for medicine) that are low to high THC strains, and we also have a CBD (non-psychoactive) strain. In addition, we have pre-rolls (aka “joints”), capsules, rosin (a solvent-free extract), bubble hash, tinctures, transdermal patches, edibles, and “Cold Brew” concentrate.

We will have more products very soon, including more concentrates, more capsules, and more flower strains. There will always be multiple consumption methods for our patients to choose from.

How do you set prices for your products?

We set our prices for products based on several factors, many of which are unique to our industry:

  • We pay all of our employees a living wage, plus medical, dental and vision benefits.
  • Massachusetts’s Medical Use of Marijuana Program requires us to comply with extensive regulations, which further increases our expenses.
  • Public safety is a top priority. To avoid diversion of our products to the criminal market, we always have to price at least as high as what is charged in the illicit market. Fortunately for our patients, they know that our products are always 100% tested for potency and safety.
  • Because we not only sell medical cannabis, but we also cultivate and manufacture our products, our business requires a lot of capital for start up.

We are proud to provide our patients with high-quality medical cannabis.
Despite these constraints, we offer a Patient Affordability Program to provide meaningful pricing discounts for patients with limited resources. We are always happy to help our patients in any way we can. Veterans always receive a 22% discount with valid military identification.

Do you offer any discounts or financial assistance?

Yes. We offer financial assistance for patients who meet the requirements through our Patient Affordability Program (PAP). When registering on the Massachusetts Virtual Patient Gateway you’ll need to fill out IRS Form 4506–T, and send it to the local IRS office, as explained on page 2 of the document. Once the IRS provides us with confirmation of your benefits, you will receive 15% off your entire purchase, every visit, every time. For more information, you can speak with our Patient Service Assistants. Please keep in mind that, in order for us to maintain our long-term financial sustainability, we must be diligent in extending PAP discounts only to those patients who have proven their eligibility. Thank you for your understanding.

Do you offer a discount for Veterans?


Yes. We offer all U.S. Veterans a 22% off discount on all products, every purchase, no limits or minimums.

All three of our Temescal Wellness MA locations will now offer a 40% discount for veterans with a 100% SC rating from the Department of Veterans Affairs. Veterans must be registered as a patient with the Massachusetts Medical Use of Marijuana Program and need to bring with them:

What is "Cold Brew" concentrate?

Cold Brew is a holistic concentrate made using pure, crystal clear cryogenic alcohol to provide the highest concentration of terpenes, flavonoids, and beneficial plant lipids in the highest quality, most flavorful concentrate at our RMDs!

It is similar to rosin or other concentrate products, and can be “dabbed,” placed into flower or rolling papers, or vaporized in any standard concentrate vaporizing equipment.
