Massachusetts-based cannabis company Garden Remedies Inc. said that its Newton dispensary received its final approval to begin adult use sales.
The approval was granted by the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission for the dispensary located at 697 Washington St. The company will begin adult use cannabis sales from May 25.
Founded in 2013 by Karen Munkacy, Garden Remedies is Massachusetts’ only cannabis company founded and led by a woman physician. The company specializes in growing all-natural cannabis flower indoors to organic standards in super-soil, then formulates, processes, tests and packages its products in its state-of-the-art cultivation facility.
Garden Remedies manufactures its all-natural cannabis product in Fitchburg, and also offers a medical cannabis dispensary in Melrose, and another location that will open soon in Marlborough for medical and adult use cannabis sales.
“We have been working for years to achieve adult use cannabis sales in Newton—a dream that is now becoming a reality, and we are determined to continue to be good neighbors here in Newton,” Garden Remedies Founder, President and CEO Dr. Munkacy stated.
“This is tremendously meaningful to me, as a breast cancer survivor and long-time legalization advocate, because it is my deep-held conviction that adult access to this powerful, natural remedy should be a right, not a privilege,” Dr. Munkacy added.
