Good Chemistry has partnered with the Cannabis Advancement Series, led by Cannabis Community Care and Research Network (C3RN) and UMass Dartmouth, in collaboration with Alternative Treatment for Veterans (ATV) and Joint Venture & Co, to encourage veterans to take the Veterans Health and Cannabis Citizen Science Survey. Veterans who are 21+ and patients of the Massachusetts Medical Use of Marijuana program will receive a dime joint upon completion of the anonymous survey. The results of the survey will be used to provide recommendations for increasing national and local access to medical cannabis for veterans.
Good Chemistry is now offering greater access and purchasing power to all medical patients with our Dakota Pack. With bundle pricing, patients can mix & match four ounces for $1000.
At Good Chemistry Nurseries, we have one clear mission – to Make Life Better. One of the ways Good Chemistry Nurseries honors its mission of “Making Life Better” is by partnering with local, regional and national philanthropic organizations that support a variety of causes. We stand with organizations that make a positive impact in the communities we serve and we believe it is our responsibility to continue to offer a hand up to those in need.
One organization we proudly support is POW! WOW! Worcester. This is an international arts festival featuring immersive cultural experiences in the heart of New England. Their mission is to inspire change, promote diversity and inclusion, contribute to a greater quality of life, and create a genuine sense of community through public art. We are proud to partner with this meaningful organization.
This August, Good Chemistry partnered with POW! WOW! to host the artists welcome dinner. The GC Team worked alongside POW! WOW! and Birch Tree Bread Company to create a warm reception, to extend open arms to the artists traveling to Worcester. It was so great to connect with the artists before they embarked on their mission of creating immersive art experiences in the community. POW! WOW! Worcester goes through August 22nd, and you can find new murals all around the city. Learn more about POW! WOW! and their mission HERE.

On August 2, 2018, Good Chemistry Nurseries will open the first medical cannabis dispensary at 9 Harrison St. in the City of Worcester’s Canal District. We are grateful to be able to share our extraordinary Cannabis product and experience with the Worcester community.
Good Chemistry Nurseries Founder and CEO Matthew Huron traces his horticultural roots to his grandparents who were farmers before settling in Worcester. The benefits of medical Cannabis became evident to Huron when his father and his father’s partner were diagnosed with HIV/AIDS in San Francisco. In 1996, when medical Cannabis became available in California, he saw firsthand the symptomatic relief patients experiences from this alternative medical treatment.
As is true with all Good Chemistry Colorado locations, when visitors first arrive at the 9 Harrison Street location, they are greeted with Good Chemistry’s pioneering category system that helps customers navigate the world of cannabis across many levels by identifying strains under the Amplify, Relax, Relieve and Sleep categories.
Good Chemistry’s design and branding choices are aesthetically pleasing not only for patients, but also for the communities that we serve. Our work has been recognized for its sophistication by a number of media outlets over the years including AdAge, Inc. Magazine and Curbed.
In addition to an award winning design aesthetic, Good Chemistry Massachusetts features a S.T.A.T.S. video display. Created by Good Chemistry Nurseries in 2016, The S.T.A.T.S. method (Sight, Touch, Aroma, Taste, Sensation) is a five-step process for identifying high quality, remarkable flower. This guide can help consumers evaluate essential aspects of the flower in order to make the most informed and satisfying purchase decisions.
Good Chemistry Nurseries was founded in the spirit of “Making Life Better” for those in need. We believe it’s our obligation to give back to the community, and support the vulnerable or underserved. We plan to continue this commitment on behalf of the City of Worcester.
We’d love to stay in touch with you so we can share product information and Good Chemistry Nurseries news and events. Intake forms are available for you to provide us your contact information at the bottom of this page.
We look forward to serving you soon.

In 2016 Good Chemistry launched the S.T.A.T.S. system and guide for evaluating the essential aspects of cannabis. The S.T.A.T.S. method (Sight, Touch, Aroma, Taste, Sensation) is a five-step process for identifying high quality, remarkable flower, not unlike the multi-step process for evaluating wine. The guide can help consumers evaluate essential aspects of the flower in order to make the most informed and satisfying purchase decisions.
S.T.A.T.S. evaluation guides are available for free in our dispensary to adults 21+ years or older interested in learning more about cannabis. The guide is also available online at www.statsguide.org.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT PURCHASING ADULT-USE CANNABIS IN MASSACHUSETTS
Do you accept credit / debit cards, or are is it cash only?
We accept debit cards via a cashless ATM that does have a standard ATM fee. There are also ATMs on site.
How much cannabis can I have?
If you are over 21 years old, you may possess up to one ounce of cannabis on your person, except that not more than five grams of cannabis may be in the form of cannabis concentrate. In your home, you may possess up to 10 ounces of cannabis and any cannabis produced by plants cultivated on the premises. Any amount of cannabis or cannabis products over one ounce kept within your place of residence must be secured by a lock.
Can I smoke or consume adult-use cannabis products in public?
No, you cannot smoke adult use cannabis in a place where you are prohibited from smoking tobacco and you cannot consume adult use cannabis in a public place.
Can I drive with cannabis in my car?
Like alcohol, you may not have an open container of adult-use cannabis/cannabis products in the passenger area of your car while on the road or at a place where the public has access. An “open container” includes a package with its seal broken or a package from which the contents have been partially removed. The “passenger area” does not include a trunk or a locked glove compartment. The 2017 Act does not change the existing penalties for operating a car if you are impaired by the use of cannabis or cannabis products. You are strictly prohibited from consuming cannabis while operating a car. For specific information, see MGL c.90 § 24.

“Whether novice of aficionado, knowing how to assess cannabis flower quality is key to having the best possible experience.”
All Cannabis is not created equal, and just as wine enthusiasts enjoy a use friendly tasting system, Good Chemistry Nurseries, one of the industry’s most experienced Cannabis producers has now created a stylish, easy-to-use free consumer Cannabis evaluation guide for assessing quality Cannabis flower. The S.T.A.T.S. method – Sight, Touch Aroma, Taste, Sensation – is a guide to helping consumers evaluate essential aspects of the flower in order to make the most informed and satisfying purchase decisions.
“Just as American consumers have become more knowledgeable about quality wine and craft beer, Good Chemistry Nurseries’ S.T.A.T.S. guide will help consumers quickly and easily assess high quality cannabis,” noted Matthew Huron, CEO, Good Chemistry. Huron is widely recognized as one of the most experienced cultivators of marijuana in the United States. “The S.T.A.T.S. Guide was developed by the Good Chemistry Nurseries cultivators who have years of experience backed by extensive education in horticulture and botany, but we hope consumers will utilize this guide no matter where they purchase their Cannabis.”
The S.T.A.T.S. Guide provides newer consumers the guidelines they need to determine the quality of Cannabis flowers, and allows experienced users a new way to look at the complex world they already appreciate. Established through consumer surveys, strain evaluations, and a team of cultivation experts, S.T.A.T.S. provides consumers with a universal guide to selecting high quality Cannabis. The guide was developed as a simple, easy-to-use evaluation tool and will change the way consumers view and purchase Cannabis flower.
Sight: Seeing the flower can sometimes be the only evaluation option before purchase, so it is important to know what the visual cues for remarkable cannabis are. S.T.A.T.S. helps consumers evaluate qualities including trichome content, color and trim.
Touch: Touching the flower can help with evaluating the cure (the controlled drying process to achieve proper moisture content post-harvest). S.T.A.T.S. defines how your bud should feel.
Aroma: Each strain has a unique aroma. Distinctions can be made between high and poor quality aroma. S.T.A.T.S. reviews what scents should be expected, and what smells can denote poor quality.
Taste: Different strains will have different flavor profiles. Similar to wine tasting, experience is necessary to distinguish between different flavors in the strains. Plus, how to ensure you are getting the best taste out of your flower.
Sensation: The first sensation that comes from cannabis is the sensation of lift, or of being high. Varying experience levels may affect how people feel with each strain and the amount of time people feel lifted. Good Chemistry has identified the key categories of sensations that can come from different strains including Amplify, Relax, Relieve, and Sleep.
An electronic copy of the S.T.A.T.S. guide is available for free to the public at statsguide.org. Hard copy booklets are available at no cost at Good Chemistry’s locations on 9 Harrison Street in the Canal District.
