Yamba Market’s Cambridge Dispensary

"A Whole New Cannabis Experience and Event Space"

Yamba Market’s Cambridge dispensary has brought recreational cannabis to The Peoples’ Republic. Their Central Square retail shop is the first business of its kind in the city as well as the company’s flagship store – with another already planned for nearby Harvard Square.

Culture and Cannabis

When you visit Yamba Market’s Cambridge dispensary, you get more than just access to high-quality cannabis products from around the state. Owners Sieh Samura and Sean Hope have taken special care to create a captivating and informative cannabis shopping experienced that pays homage to the history of the plant. Both have spent years advocating for cannabis legality and other related issues.

The word ‘Yamba’ in Yamba Market’s Cambridge dispensary is a traditional nickname for cannabis in West Africa – where Samura’s father is from. The area’s influence can also be seen in the authentic African baskets, fabric rugs and bowls that serve as accents to the otherwise modern interior.  Live plants, bright artwork and wood grain furnishing create a relaxing and natural atmosphere to browse and shop. You can expect a speedy checkout too. Their counter stretches to accommodate an impressive seven points of purchase.

Community is central to the experience at Yamba Market’s Cambridge dispensary. Even those who don’t use cannabis visit regularly to interact with their neighbors and share ideas. The company’s co-located space called ‘Yamba Joint’ features work from local artists, exciting live events and more. They have committed to working with groups like Dorchester’s MindArt for this aspect of their operation. One of the first partnering projects will be a mural by the prolific Boston graffiti artist known as Eyevan.

Eclectic Selection

Leaders at Yamba Market’s Cambridge dispensary have expressed interest in working with local cannabis brands. Specifically, the names Fernway, Coast Cannabis and Kush Grove were mentioned in an article by Marc Levy of Cambridge Day. One item you will be sure to find on their shelves is ‘Purient Bedroom Cannabis’. This specialty item was developed by Samura’s wife. It is an infused topical intended for intimate use.

Central Location

The positioning alone of Yamba Market’s Cambridge dispensary, on the corner of Pearl St. and Mass Ave. (Rt 2A), makes it one of the most convenient places to shop for cannabis in the Metro Boston region. Proximity to other major roads like Hwy 3 and Hwy 1 make it easily accessible by rideshares. Driving may be more of a challenge – due to Central Square’s limited parking. Public transportation is also an option. You can take the Redline to the Central Square stop as well as the MBTA’s 1, 47 and 70 bus lines.
