I've been to quite a few dispensaries in Massachusetts, they're becoming almost as common as package stores. I was even lucky enough to get a behind-the-scenes tour of The Pass in Sheffield, Massachusetts. It was such a weird feeling to stand in front of 25 pounds of bud, which you can see in the photo above, and here's a close-up of a huge bud of Sour Diesel.

I made a big mistake the first couple of times that I went to NETA in Northampton, Massachusetts in 2018 - I didn't pre-order. I stood in line with my brother for 3 hours the first time, an hour the second. Don't make that mistake. You may have an idea that these dispensaries have product out that you can smell, touch, or feel before you purchase - you can't. Sure, there may be a couple of pretty buds behind glass as fixtures, but they're not tearooms where you can sift through containers of herb. All product is packaged and behind the scenes, all you'll see is the pretty containers in cool packaging.

The best advice I can give you is to pre-order. Go to the website, browse all you want, and place a pre-order. Connecticut dispensaries are going to be flooded with customers for the first few months, until more shops open up. Wait till there are more than 5-10 of them before you just walk in.
