Common Questions About Marijuana

The Most Common Questions We Get Asked...

The cannabis industry is always changing. Whether it’s the latest development in technology or revisions to government regulations, it’s important to be up-to-date and informed. That’s why we’ve answered some of our most frequently asked questions. If you have a question that’s not included here, you’re more than welcome to contact us or stop by and talk to one of our Muses. 

I've never been to a dispensary, how does it work?

Most cannabis dispensaries function similarly to typical retail stores, but there are a few unique differences. Not everyone is allowed to enter every dispensary. All individuals who can prove that they are 21+ with a state-issued ID may enter a recreational dispensary, which is what Reverie 73 is.

Once you’re inside one of our Reverie 73 locations, our Muses will help you find the cannabis products or accessories that work for you and will show you the options we have in our showcases. You’ll need to show your ID again as you check out with your items. After that, you’ll be on your way!

Who is permitted inside your retail locations?

Recreational use of cannabis is permitted in the state of Massachusetts for adults only (21+). All recreational clients will be asked to show a government-issued ID upon their arrival at Reverie 73. No one under the age of 21 may enter our dispensaries without a medical marijuana certificate that matches the name on their state-issued ID. This includes children or relatives of our clients, so we ask that you please plan your visit accordingly. If you have any questions on this policy, a member of our Reverie 73 team will be happy to help!

Is Cannabis Legal?

While cannabis is still illegal on a federal level, it is legal in many states — including Massachusetts — for medical or recreational use. Recreational use of cannabis is permitted in the state of Massachusetts for adults only (21+). All recreational clients will be asked to show a government-issued ID upon their arrival at Reverie 73. Medical marijuana patients (18+ only) are required to bring both their medical marijuana certificate and their government-issued ID.

What is the difference between THC and CBD?

THC and CBD are two cannabinoids that, together, determine what kind of effects each strain of cannabis will provide. Basically, THC is the only psychoactive cannabinoid and it is the cause of any mind-altering effects you receive from cannabis. CBD is not psychoactive, and can aid in stress or pain relief, increase appetite, and induce sleep. To learn more about the active ingredients in cannabis, we have additional resources about the active ingredients in cannabis.

Where did the name Reverie 73 come from?

Many people who enjoy cannabis products describe their effects as dreamlike and surreal, which is what the word Reverie refers to. In 1973, a group of several U.S. states banded together and decriminalized possession of small amounts of the plant, which had been illegal since the 1930s. This was one of the first legal and cultural milestones for cannabis acceptance in the states. It’s also the inspiration for the second half of our name.

How do I know which cannabis product is right for me?

To find the right cannabis product for you first determine whether your goal is relaxation, pain relief, increased focus or appetite, etc. Next, understand your tolerance level and experience with cannabis. Start with low THC levels if you’re a beginner and be sure to consult our Muses for guidance based on your specific needs. Consider the method of consumption, such as smoking, vaping, edibles, or concentrates, and their onset times and duration. Keep track of how different products affect you and adjust accordingly. Always prioritize safety, start slow, and be patient as you explore what works best for your individual preferences and requirements!

What are the different ways to consume cannabis?

There are various ways to consume cannabis, each offering unique effects and experiences. The choice of consumption method depends on personal preference, desired effects, and health considerations.


Smoking remains a classic method, using joints, blunts, or pipes. 

Vaping has recently grown in popularity as it involves inhaling vaporized cannabis oil through devices like vaporizers. 

Edibles offer discreet consumption through infused food products like gummies or brownies. 

Dabbing uses cannabis concentrates on a hot surface to inhale the potent vapor.

There are also beverages, providing precise dosing and a potential alternative to alcohol. 

What is the return policy for cannabis products?

At this time, we don’t accept returns of any kind. But not to worry, we are happy to provide any knowledge, guidance, and recommendations prior to your purchasing any products! Just ask a Muse for some help and we would be happy to answer any questions. 

Are there any restrictions on the quantity I can purchase?

Per the daily purchase limits of cannabis in Massachusetts, a customer is limited to purchasing one ounce per person per day (with a limit of one visit per customer per day). 

Can I bring my pet inside the dispensary?

Service animals are always allowed to accompany their handlers in the dispensary! Unfortunately, no other pets are allowed inside the building, including emotional support animals (ESA).  

Is there a limit on the amount of cannabis I can possess?

Per the marijuana laws in Massachusetts, adults may hold up to one ounce of marijuana on their person and up to 10 ounces in their homes. Those with more than an ounce must keep the cannabis locked up. 

Are there any consumption guidelines I should be aware of?

You must be at least 21 years old and may not consume cannabis in a public place in the state of Massachusetts. Doesn’t smoking a joint in the comfort of your own couch sound so much better anyways? 

Can I use my out-of-state ID to enter the dispensary?

Yes! You are permitted to use an out-of-state ID to enter and purchase dispensary items. As long as you show a valid government-issued ID, you’re good to go!

Are there any age restrictions for medical marijuana use?

Yes! You must be at least 18 years old to purchase and use medical marijuana. 

Do you offer any educational resources on cannabis?

Yes, you can find a series of great resources on our website. If you’re looking to learn the basics, our Education Guide or Cannabis 101 Guide is a great place to start. If you’re interested in expanding your knowledge around a certain type of weed or method of consumption such as flower, cartridges, edibles, concentrates, or beverages, we also have that information available and ready for you! 

Can I purchase cannabis accessories without an ID?

No, you’ll need a government-issued ID to enter the dispensary or purchase any type of product.
