Founded in 2013, Garden Remedies has been offering premium cannabis grown naturally in Central Massachusetts since 2016. Founded and led by Karen Munkacy, MD, Garden Remedies is the only physician- and woman-led cannabis company in Massachusetts.

When it comes to your wellness, you deserve the highest standards. We make all of our own products—from growing the flower and processing the cannabis to making the edibles and the topicals. Using just soil and water, our dedication to quality flower bud spans both medical marijuana and, once we are approved by regulators, adult use.

Built on the bedrocks of medical science and personal compassion, Garden Remedies is committed to cultivating top talent. Dr. Munkacy, board-certified in anesthesiology and fellowship-trained in pain management, is a physician who began researching the medical applications of marijuana after undergoing breast cancer treatment herself. In keeping with her leadership, our employees understand the profound positive impact that our work can have in our communities.

“There has to be a better way.” That’s the reason Dr. Munkacy founded Garden Remedies. For many patients in pain, and for those suffering from a wide array of chronic illnesses or injuries, it often seems difficult to find the most effective remedy for managing their symptoms and enjoying a better quality of life. The use of medical marijuana is designed to address this challenge. It’s Garden Remedies’ goal to provide convenient access to safe, top-quality medical marijuana that helps patients find relief from a wide variety of debilitating symptoms and live their best lives. By offering medical marijuana products that are all-natural and grown at our own cultivation facility, Garden Remedies is meeting the demand for a better alternative.



Our Mission

Our mission is to help as many people as possible by providing access to safe, legal and natural cannabis.

Because cannabis research and use has historically been limited by federal regulations, we also work tirelessly to raise awareness about its proven benefits for individuals and communities. In addition to sharing science, policy and consumer news in our social media channels, we engage actively in community discussion, from town halls to farmers markets. This commitment extends to our new and emerging industry peers, too. In our Catalyst Mentoring Program, we equip newcomers with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in the fast-evolving and complex cannabis market.

To stay informed about cannabis research and news, please sign up for our newsletters, and/or follow us on social media.



Our Products

We grow, process and create cannabis products ranging from fresh cannabis flower bud and delectable, healing chocolates, to soothing lotions and potent concentrates. We grow, create, test and package these remedies—from seed to savor—at our cultivation center in Fitchburg, Massachusetts, where we are committed to sustainable, ethical cultivation and operations.

Today, Garden Remedies has cannabis dispensaries in Newton, Melrose and Marlborough, with additional locations planned in the near future.
