Massachusetts’ cannabis industry is a thriving landscape where women entrepreneurs are making unbelievable strides. These trailblazing companies are not only contributing to the dynamic and ever-evolving world of cannabis but also setting new standards for innovation and excellence. 


In this blog, we’ll celebrate these women-owned businesses’ achievements, highlighting their significant contributions to the local economy and the wider cannabis community.


Capeway Cannabis

Capeway Cannabis is proud to be Carver’s very first Women-Owned Cannabis Dispensary, a beacon of warmth and inclusivity in the Massachusetts cannabis landscape. Born from the vision of sister-in-laws Lori and Michelle Hough, Capeway Cannabis was founded on the desire to transform the dispensary experience from something sterile and intimidating to an environment that’s relaxed, educational, and genuinely enjoyable.


Since its inception in 2019, Capeway Cannabis has been on a mission to redefine what a visit to a recreational dispensary can be. Here, you’re part of a community. 


As you step through the doors, you’ll be greeted by a team that’s as knowledgeable as they are friendly, driven by the desire to make your experience both memorable and enlightening. They encourage every visitor to ask questions, explore the wide variety of cannabis products available, and find the perfect match for your needs and expectations.


6 Brick’s

Step into the heart of Springfield and discover 6 Brick’s, a testament to family, community, and pioneering spirit. This family-operated dispensary proudly represents the Shubrick Family’s unity and strength, symbolized by the six bricks—one for each family member, with four playing pivotal roles on the executive board. 


At the helm is CEO & Founder Payton Shubrick, a visionary whose roots run deep in Springfield’s soil. Her mission? To showcase the power of a family-owned and black-owned business in the burgeoning cannabis industry.


Payton’s dedication is twofold: deeply committed to her family and equally devoted to her hometown of Springfield. She envisions 6 Brick’s as more than a dispensary; it’s a beacon that attracts visitors to the city and gives them reasons to linger, explore, and appreciate the community’s vibrancy. 


Payton, a young African American female innovator and Springfield native, is driven by a desire to uplift those unjustly impacted by marijuana prohibition. By rooting its ethos in family values and community support, 6 Brick’s is a shining example of what inclusivity, dedication, and entrepreneurial spirit can achieve.


Canna Provisions Group

Canna Provisions Group is at the forefront of enhancing life’s journey by providing premium cannabis products, catering to a diverse range of customers, from novices to seasoned consumers. With a steadfast commitment to quality, they guarantee that their offerings are entirely natural, devoid of any chemicals, ensuring that every visit to their dispensaries is a delightful adventure. Nestled in the heart of Massachusetts, with welcoming outposts in Lee and Holyoke, Canna Provisions Group is a sanctuary for both residents and visitors.


Canna Provisions Group’s journey in the cannabis sector is vast and varied, with roots stretching from the pioneering days in Colorado to the burgeoning markets in the Northeast. Leveraging a comprehensive network of seasoned growers, extractors, and production facilities, they deliver unparalleled cannabis products. 


Co-founder Meg Sanders is a visionary leader who played a pivotal role in revitalizing the cannabis landscape in the United States. Her collaborative efforts with the governor of Colorado to reform the state’s cannabis laws and her initiative to open one of Colorado’s inaugural dispensaries have cemented her status as a trailblazer.



At Starbird, pride is a cornerstone – not just for being locally owned but for standing tall as a woman-owned establishment that draws inspiration from a family legacy of pioneering weed shops across the country. Located in Salem, far removed from the impersonal expanse of corporate giants, Starbird offers a close-knit, knowledgeable, and attentive experience that truly sets it apart. Here, understanding cannabis is about passion, listening, and matching every individual with the perfect product for any occasion, all while ensuring the best prices.


In this new age of legal cannabis, the choices are dazzling. From a myriad of flower types to the innovative realms of edibles, tinctures, teas, and even transdermal bath soaks, Starbird invites you on an exploratory journey into the expansive offerings of cannabis. 


This journey is about the diverse products and an enduring story of resilience, guidance, and a touch of luck brought by Grandma Flo, a revered figure in the family and a trailblazer in her own right. With her wisdom, the shop navigated the highly competitive process of securing one of the coveted five retail permits in Salem, echoing her belief that success in cannabis retail hinges on good products, nice employees, and a prime location. 


Coast Cannabis Co.

Coast Cannabis Co. is a pioneering force on the East Coast, distinguished not only as one of the first women-led manufacturers licensed for adult-use cannabis but also as a beacon of wellness and purity in the industry.
