Garden Remedies in Newton was founded in 2016 by Dr. Karen Munkacy, a board certified anesthesiologist, pain management specialist with several years as a practicing physician, medical school professor are UCLA and USC, and breast cancer survivor. Throughout her treatment, Dr. Munkacy recalls the discomfort she felt during chemotherapy but because Ballot 3 had not passed in Newton, she strayed from breaking the law and recovered over time. With the goal to spare the suffering of others, Dr. Munkacy began working with lawmakers to promote safe access legislation for medical marijuana. Her perseverance and determination resulted in a partnership with a medical cannabis team who shares the same passion for alleviating pain and discomfort and helping people.

Each staff is interested and invested in making you feel better. They remember names, what you have "going on", what you tried last time and other personal details that make the experience more enjoyable. The area is not too small not too big. The area is quiet and private and very clean. The prices are lower and higher depending on certain areas or product. Quality is always there and 100%. Staffs are knowledgable. Product can be scarce as they adjust and build and the "rewards system" is new and wacky. Still my favorite and shows promise to grow into a supportive and caring dispensary.
Where do I even begin?! My experience at Garden Remedies went above and beyond my expectations with regard to customer service and quality of product. Upon entering, I was warmly greeted and received excellent one on one attention from the staff. One of the main reasons I use medical marijuana is my anxiety combined with depression, and the staff members were very knowledgeable with recommending certain strains as well as products over others that would best help my needs. I was especially attracted to their assortment of bath products and lotions. Working full time leaves me sore and even more stressed than my anxiety alone, so the staff recommended that I try the Oatmeal Honey Garden Immersion Bath Salts and the Lavender Bath Bomb; both of which smell absolutely wonderful and provide such a sense of deep relaxation. The medicated lotion bar has also proved especially useful to help with treating a recent burn (from work) that is still healing. I also purchased several pre rolled join

Garden Remedies being my first dispensary I ever went to when I received my Medical marijuana card, has to be my favorite dispensary. Not just because of the incredibly friendly staff, but also the quality and variety in the products they carry.
As a patient who suffers from severe anxiety, dispensary visits can be intimidating- but I never feel nervous going to Garden Remedies. I really like the discrete entrance and the fact that you exit thru a common door for the building. The staff is incredibly helpful and are very educated. They always guide me in the right direction when it comes to my medicinal treatment.
I adore their vape pen cartridges and spa line products. Garden Remedies always has a killer supply of high quality flower. My personal favorite strain is "cornbread" as it suits my medicinal needs.
Thank you to the caring staff at Garden Remedies for your service and products! You've improved my life for the better.

From flowers and concentrates to edibles and topicals I was taken back by the quality and variety that Garden Remedies has to offer. Besides the few everyday staples of their menu, Garden Remedies has a pretty frequently changing selection of flavors and products. Between the flavors of their hardcandies to the scent of their lotion, I ofton forget the products are infused with cannabis. I would not let taste or smell be the judge of potency though, or you may be very (pleasantly) surprised. The Lotion has become a daily remedy for me in the evening after I have finished my yoga practice. One of my other favorite products I picked up was the vape cartidge. The cartidges are my go to microdosing option. You can see just how much the extraction team, as well as the rest of the staff at Garden Remedies, takes pride in their work and producing nothing less than clean, consistant and tastey products.

The entrance is anonymous and safe. You exit through a door that is separate from the entrance which is nice and discrete.
The staff is super inviting and knowledgeable. I went to New GrassRoots Institute so it is refreshing to talk to people that know what they are talking about.
The flower and products are top notch. I love that fact that GR is the only MA dispensary owned and run by a doctor.
I recommend this dispensary to everyone with a medical card.
When on a dispensary road trip to try out what those in Eastern Mass have. The different types of medicine were nice ( the bath bomb gave me great PMS relief) and the flower had a wonderful benefit for my migraines. I will say that I did not particularly like that the flowers were prepackaged for they were a little dry even with the bovita in it. The employees ( except for the very sweet security guy) seems a bit passive aggressive once they found out we were checking out different dispensaries as well as they did not have a lot of input on recommendations. Overall I would go back just for some of their products.
Looks like they have some really interesting strains, but the flower is really, really old; no smell, turns to dust if I try to put it in a grinder.
I just got two new vape pens yesterday and not only are the delicious, but the man who helped me out was awesome and very informative. This was my first time here and he really helped me understand the product I was getting!
