    We are deeply committed to cleanliness and sanitation in our production kitchen. Our staff are trained on how to avoid cross contamination through strict food safety practices and our entire current line-up of edibles and infused products are gluten/wheat free.

  • 05 What are the NETA limits of the day? icon back

    While the state's limit is 1 oz flower OR 5 Grams of concentrates - or any combination of the two. Please look at our menu or Reserve Ahead for daily limits.

  • 06 Can I make multiple visits if I don’t reach the 1oz state limit? icon back

    Purchase limits imposed by the state and NETA are per transaction, and as such, it is possible for a customer to visit the dispensary more than once in a single day. That said, state law also prohibits an individual from possessing more than one ounce of marijuana or five grams of concentrate outside of their home. So - if you hit your limit in your first visit and wish to return, you should ensure that you are first safely storing your purchase at home to avoid personal conflict with the law. Please note, this is not legal advice. For questions, please consult with your own legal counsel.

  • 07 What is the Difference Between Dose and D-Line? icon back

    The difference between D-line and Dose edibles is the type of cannabis concentrate infused.  D-line products are made with our ultra pure distillate, while Dose products are made with food grade wax. Many patients report that edibles made with distillate have a faster onset and a stronger effect.  As always, we encourage you to start low and slow whenever taking an edible.  If you are interested in purchasing Indica, Hybrid or Sativa Dose products, we encourage you to become a Massachusetts Medical Marijuana Patient.  We have more information on becoming a patient on our website here.

  • 08 When can I expect X product to be back on the menu again? icon back

    While we strive to have all of our products on the menu daily, it is possible that items occasionally run out. If there is a particular product you are looking for, you can reach out to us via email to get an estimate of when these products might be available again. Otherwise, keep checking back to our menu - it may be that these products are waiting to be tested and will appear on our menu again soon. Please feel free to reach out to [email protected] for more information.

  • 11 NETA Exchange Policy. icon back

    We stand by our products 100%. If you find a product is defective, or does not give you the results you desire, feel free to return to the dispensary with the product, along with your receipt (medical patients do not need a receipt) and ID. Go right to the security at the door, and let them know you are there for a return. We will be happy to troubleshoot the products and, if necessary, we will offer an exchange.

    Medical patients do not need a receipt for an exchange.

  • 12 APEX Troubleshooting. icon back

    While it is difficult to diagnose the problem over the internet, there are a few things you can try before declaring it defective. Occasionally, we have seen cartridges that need to be slightly loosened in order to make a good connection to the battery. Loosen the cartridge a little bit at a time and test the button. You may also want to clean the connections - with the battery off, using a swab with isopropyl alcohol, clean the bottom of the cartridge as well as the chamber on the battery where the cartridge sits.

    If you are still unable to use the cartridge as expected, feel free to return to the store with your receipt and the battery and cartridges and we will be happy to assist with an exchange. Skip the line and go directly to the door and let staff know why you have returned. They will be happy to get you to the right register to clear up this issue.

  • 03 I have this disease – help me choose? icon back

    While we cannot provide medical advice, we do try to work with patients on symptom relief and provide helpful information based on anecdotal notes from our patients. Every person is different, and various therapies might be effective for one person but provide a different experience for another.

    The best course of action for you to take is to talk to your health care provider - either your primary care physician, or a doctor who specializes in cannabis treatment. We have many in Massachusetts which can be found on our Certification info page, click here.

    We also encourage you to research online for this information.  Using your specific cancer and 'cannabis' as key words, you may find many articles, both anecdotal and scholarly that may help you in understanding what type and mode of use may be right for you. From there, you can view our online menu to see if we have similar products available for recreational patrons.

    We’ve partnered with ZipLine to deliver technology that enables you to link your checking account with the CanPay App so you can pay for your purchases electronically instead of using cash.

  • 03 CanPay: I didn’t enter an incorrect PIN code. How can I find out why my account has been locked? icon back

  • 05 CanPay: Do I get charged by my bank for an ACH transaction? icon back

    Most banks do not charge for ACH transactions. This is the same method that is currently used for paying mortgage payments, car payments and any authorized debits from your bank account. It is possible that some banks may charge a monthly fee for such services so please check with your bank for details. Charges will apply from your bank and from CanPay if your transaction is returned as unpaid (NSF, Account Closed/Frozen, etc.). Our return fee will be the maximum amount permissible by state law. This fee is separate from any fees that your bank may impose for such returns.

    If I conduct a transaction and I do not have sufficient funds in my account, what will happen?

    First, you should not conduct a transaction if you are aware that you do not have sufficient funds to cover the face amount of the transaction. If you do, your bank will return the transaction and your card will be deactivated until you make good on your purchase. Returned transactions also result in a “Return Fee” permissible by state laws. CanPay, or assigned agents, will try to electronically collect the face amount of the transaction and the associated Return Fee on two attempts. In the event that the company cannot collect through normal electronic means, your account will be flagged and referred to a collection service and your membership may be cancelled.

  • 06 CanPay: I saw a small deposit of a few cents in my bank account, what is this? icon back

    CanPay validates your enrolled bank account information to ensure that we have the correct account number. We do so by submitting a deposit to your bank account. The “challenge deposit” is a test to confirm the validity of the account. The enrolled card is not activated until this deposit verification process is completed.

  • 07 CanPay: What is an ACH debit transaction? icon back

    The Automated Clearing House (ACH) Network is a highly reliable and efficient nationwide batch-oriented electronic funds transfer system governed by the NACHA Operating Rules that provide for the interbank clearing of electronic payments for participating depository financial institutions. The Federal Reserve and Electronic Payments Network act as ACH Operators, central clearing facilities through which financial institutions transmit or receive ACH entries.

  • 08 CanPay: How long does it take for my CanPay Mobile Debit App to become active? icon back

    Once you have applied, the information that you provide will undergo a validation process. This process could take up to three business days. You will be notified of your CanPay account status and program details through subsequent email messages.

  • 09 CanPay: I get an email alert every time I use CanPay. How do I turn off that feature? icon back

    Once you have enrolled, click here to log in to the member portal and manage your account. Select and click on the account number you use to make purchases, and then click the header ‘UPDATE MY EMAIL PREFERENCES’, select ‘No, do not send me emails’, and click ‘Update’ button.

  • 10 CanPay: I realized too late that a retailer accidentally charged me the wrong amount. What do I do? icon back

  • 11 CanPay: Where can I review past transactions? icon back

    An email receipt for each transaction is sent to the email you used to setup your account. You can also login to your account and see historical transactions there.

  • 12 CanPay: Why is an email address required? icon back

    Our system relies heavily on email communication to all customers. Your email address becomes your login to manage your account. An email address is also required to make updates to your account information and to provide the ability for you to review your transactions. It is also necessary to retrieve and/or change your PIN.

  • 13 CanPay: Is CanPay Secure? icon back

    Yes, CanPay employs the latest security technology. Additionally, your Payment PIN generated in the CanPay app can only be used one time and expires within 30 minutes after it is requested.

  • 14 CanPay: What is my CanPay PIN? icon back

    Your CanPay PIN is the 4-digit PIN you created when you joined CanPay.

  • 15 CanPay: My CanPay account was turned off, how do I reactivate it? icon back

    If your account was put on hold because your checking account had insufficient funds, please call 877-564-5174 to initiate the necessary funds transfer. Once you’ve paid any outstanding balances, your CanPay account can be reactivated and you can continue to use CanPay at your favorite stores.

  • 16 CanPay: Why not just use my credit card? icon back

    The card brands and banks that issue your credit cards do not allow their cards to be used to make cannabis purchases, regardless of it is legal in your state or not. CanPay is the first debit payment app that can be used at cannabis retailers.

  • 17 CanPay: Can I use my CanPay debit app at any retailer? icon back

    CanPay can only be used at approved retailers. We are constantly expanding the retailers where you can use CanPay, but feel free to encourage your favorite retailer to sign-up for CanPay.

  • 18 CanPay: There was an overdraft fee on my checking account. Do you know why? icon back
