420: The Holiday so nice, Berkshire Roots will celebrate it twice
County's 1st dispensary hosts special events April 20,24 with new strains, new products, food, music, giveaways, and a Jerry Carcia line of cannabis.
By Noah Hoffenberg | Eagle Content Editor | April 17th, 2021
PITTSFIELD — 420.
Isn’t that the ideal temperature for smoking cannabis?
Or is it a hidden meaning in a classic Bob Dylan song?...
For cannabis aficionados, the allure of any dispensary always will be the release of new products. For 420, Berkshire Roots will unveil a half dozen newly minted products, including Ensemble Oil — an edible full-extract cannabis oil that uses the whole plant as its base, also known as full-spectrum; a line of in-house, strain-specific kief; and three new cannabis Berkshire Roots grown strains, including Great White Shark, an indica-dominant flower. The dispensary is also adding the Garcia Hand-Picked line of cannabis products to the menu, which is sourced in Massachusetts.
