As New England thaws out from another frosty winter, travelers from across the country and around the world look to Cape Cod for a coastal summer getaway. With over 550 miles of breathtaking beaches and refreshing breezy nights even in the dog days of August as well as plenty of fresh seafood shacks, mini-golf, drive-in movies and other attractions – it is easy to see why.
The legalization of adult-use (recreational) cannabis in Massachusetts and the proliferation of retail stores has created yet another draw for tourism to Cape Cod and the Islands. Of course, not all pot shops are equal. This offseason, the team at Dispensary Genie explored dispensaries up and down the Cape. We’ve rounded up the best dispensary in each part of Cape Cod for Summer 2022 so that you can save time looking for good cannabis and work on your tan.
Before The Bridges
Wareham, MA is a nice town to rest and stock up on supplies after battling traffic down Rt. 3 or I-495. This mainland community has been affectionately nicknamed ‘The Gateway to The Cape’ because of its positioning before the iconic Sagamore and Bourn Bridges. Trade Roots Wareham dispensary is a great place to curate cannabis for your vacation. In addition to their expansive selection, patrons rave about Trade Roots’ farm-to-table shopping experience. Four large glass panels behind the sales counter allow visitors to observe a live commercial grow.

Even if you’ve already passed the canal, don’t worry. You can still stop for cannabis just a little ways down Rt. 6 or Rt. 28. Triple M’s Mashpee dispensary is located just off of Main Street on Echo Rd. Locals and visitors choose this cannabis retailer for their consistent quality, value and convenience. This is the company’s second adult-use location – with another in nearby Plymouth.

For now, year-rounders and seasonal residents are without any stops for cannabis in Barnstable, Yarmouth, Dennis and other Mid Cape towns. If you are heading east on Rt. 6, you won’t see another dispensary until you reach the village of Eastham. Keep traveling a few more miles and you will find even more in Wellfleet. While all of these establishments serve top-shelf product, we feel that Terps’ Wellfleet dispensary makes an especially nice pitstop. Their large parking lot as well as easy access to public bathrooms and neighboring Dunkin’ Donuts make it an ideal place to freshen up yourself and your stash before or after hitting the beach.

With the free-spirited culture that Provincetown, Massachusetts is recognized for worldwide, it should come as no surprise that seaside community is home to more cannabis retailors than any other Cape Cod town. If you are a connoisseur or just curious, it is worth poking your head in each one to see what they offer. This year, we are going to recognize B/Well’s P-Town dispensary as our favorite place to shop for cannabis on the edge of the East Coast. Their tasteful design and coastal decorum create a shopping experience that is truly Cape Cod. Beyond the buzz, you’ll get a great feeling knowing that you are supporting an LGBTQ+, women and veteran owned business when you shop at B/Well.

When it comes to green on the Islands of Cape Cod, you can’t go wrong at The Green Lady’s Nantucket dispensary. This cannabis retailor has overcome significant logistical hurdles to bring quality cannabis to their relatively isolated community. Because the waters connecting Nantucket with the rest of Cape Cod are federally regulated, all product must be grown, tested and consumed on the Island. The Green Lady has implemented an impressive vertically integrated business model to meet these demands. Theming has not been lost on the creative department at The Green Lady. On an average day you can find appropriately named strains like Moby Dick, The Perfect Storm and Black Dog Kush.
