Resinate isn’t just another cannabis dispensary that came into being after recreational marijuana use was legalized in Massachusetts. Founder and CEO Peter DeCaro is a Worcester native and prides himself on being a local operator that is involved in the community.
“We are a locally owned and operated, vertically integrated premium cannabis company with retail stores in Worcester and Northampton, and a 50,000-foot grow facility in Central Massachusetts,” he remarked. “Our staff, our owners and our exclusive strains and products all come from Massachusetts.”
DeCaro, who is a cancer survivor, has a very personal connection to recognizing the medical benefits and importance of cannabis.
“Medical marijuana isn’t a sideline. It’s at the heart of what we do,” he said. “We began as a medical marijuana dispensary in Worcester. Without our medical patients, there would be no Resinate. Medical marijuana is a critical part of our business, and we strive to offer the highest levels of service and products to medical users in Massachusetts.”
The service to medical users goes beyond just selling products.
“We will help you get your Massachusetts medical marijuana card. Our medical marijuana patients receive exclusive discounts and are eligible for curbside pickup and free delivery,” DeCaro said. “Our staff can evaluate your needs and help you find the right strains to provide symptom relief. In short, you get an exceptional level of support from the local team at Resinate – support you may not find at chain dispensaries that just want to move inventory.”
Founded in 2015, the Worcester location opened in March of 2020 and the Northampton location followed shortly thereafter.
“We are enjoying strong growth and have a great foundation upon which to pursue our expansion plans which include increasing growing capabilities to supply our own stores and our wholesale partners across Massachusetts and we will open a third location,” DeCaro said.
The growth and expansion have allowed Resinate to grow its expertise as well.
“We started out as a small, dedicated team of cannabis cultivators with one lofty goal: to build a brand from scratch that brings out the absolute best in every plant we grow,” he said. “With backgrounds in horticulture, chemistry, academics and biosystems engineering, our tight-knit crew draws on a wide range of applied experience, but at the center of it, we all have a deep passion and respect for the plant that brought us together.”
The sense of community spirit is ingrained in the business, Resinate believes in giving back and being involved in the community.
“We work with community organizations that operate in areas of disproportionate impact and in areas of low income. We are proud partners and financial supporters of several organizations that provide critical support within our communities.”
At the end of the day, Resinate is more than a dispensary.
“We know that it’s different here. You want marijuana products, and a marijuana dispensary that is as unique as the Blackstone Valley and the Blue Hills.
“Ready to try the next generation of flower, oils and edibles? Resinate is here, with exceptional adult-sale and medical marijuana in Massachusetts that you will only find at our dispensaries,” said DeCaro.
“We take pride in the brand we’ve grown,” he said. “It shines through in every high-quality product we deliver. So, whether you’re looking to tap into your own creativity, start a great conversation, or just lighten the mood, you’re sure to find your spark with Resinate.”
