Plant as Hero
Our plants encompass dozens of diverse strains sourced from the best plant geneticists in the country. Each plant is lovingly grown and harvested right in our 26,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility. Our passionate, professionally trained team grows, trims and cures our cannabis in lab grade environments using both natural growing methods and advanced proprietary growing and extraction technologies.
We offer a wide range of unique Berkshire Roots products that we make right in our own labs and bakery, each containing cannabis ingredients extracted from our own plants, and then hand-crafted into a variety of edibles, tinctures, topicals and concentrates.
We also carefully curate cannabis products from our partners across the state, ensuring a wide selection and variety at both locations.

Quality Matters to Us
For us, safety and quality are of utmost importance. Our products undergo rigorous purity testing by MCR Labs, an independent third-party laboratory licensed by Massachusetts for testing cannabis. Products are tested for potency, purity, cannabinoid and terpene levels testing, and are screened for heavy metals, pesticides, mold, and other contaminants.
BERKSHIRE ROOTS STANDS FOR RACIAL JUSTICE
In 2020 we saw the horrific events and immediately took action to stand in solidarity with the peaceful protestors across the country demanding justice for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and too many other Black people who were murdered and likely faced systemic racism throughout their lives by police, institutions, and corporations.
Berkshire Roots is committed to using our voice to end racial injustice within our community and at the national level. We donated $2,500 each to the Boston and Pittsfield NAACP Chapters, and $2,500 to The Last Prisoner Project, early 2020, and in October 2020 we did a Roll0up at the register as well as matching contributions to raise an additional $6881 for the organization. LLP focuses on three key criminal justice reform initiatives: prisoner release, record clearing through clemency and expungement, and reentry programs for those who are incarcerated for cannabis-related crimes.
We work in the legal cannabis industry and we cannot ignore that we are privileged to do so. For too long, Black people have been disproportionally targeted in cannabis-related crimes. Many are still in prison in states where cannabis has been fully legalized. Earlier in 2020, we donated $10,000 and personnel resources that provide mentorship and job opportunities to those previously incarcerated for cannabis-related offenses through our participation in the Massachusetts CultivatED program.
We've also created a program with the Berkshire Community College to facilitate a hands-on training program that has the possibility to turn into a career opportunity.
We are also committed to ensuring racial justice in the workplace and creating a safe, shared space for all our customers and employees to feel comfortable and protected. In order to fulfill our commitment, we have donated to and are working with the “Berkshire Resources for Integration of Diverse Groups through Education” (BRIDGE) to integrate diversity & cultural competency training into our staff orientation and annual training plans and to develop processes aimed at creating an environment that is diverse, inclusive, promotes equality, and has zero-tolerance for hate or discrimination.
