Zahara Cannabis: Navigating the CCC’s Regulations as a Recreational Dispensary

Zahara Cannabis: Navigating the CCC’s Regulations as a Recreational Dispensary

June 20, 2023

Today, we are going to unpack the regulations put forth by the Cannabis Control Commission (referred to as the CCC), the regulatory body of the cannabis industry in Massachusetts, and how it affects your favorite stores like Zahara Cannabis, your local Attleboro dispensary. The CCC’s guidelines play a vital role in ensuring the safe, responsible, and enjoyable use of cannabis products within Massachusetts. We will discuss how these regulations affect the various aspects of the day-to-day operations, as well as the consumer experience.

Advertising and Marketing

The CCC regulations try to strike a balance between promoting ethical cannabis business and preventing misleading or inappropriate advertising. Dispensaries must adhere to strict guidelines regarding the content, placement, and target audience of their marketing efforts, such as age restrictions for users 21+ for recreational cannabis and the types of deals a dispensary can offer. As part of the regulations, dispensaries are not allowed to actively advertise their sales or promotions via the web or in-house print marketing and may not insinuate the sale or promotion of the sale of a product at the dispensary. As well, because of the current classification of Cannabis at the Federal level, it is extremely difficult for your favorite brands or dispensaries like Zahara Cannabis in Attleboro, MA, to be active on social media with cannabis products or its consumption on social media without being banned from the platform. 

Payment Methods

The classification of Cannabis at the federal level also affects the types of payments you as a consumer are able to use in the dispensary. Because credit card networks operate on a national or international scale, it makes processing transactions compliantly difficult for dispensaries and networks. Because of its classification as a Schedule I drug by the U.S. federal government, credit card companies often are extremely hesitant to, or completely avoid getting involved in the industry to prevent potential legal repercussions. To work around this, dispensaries have brought on alternative payment methods such as cash, debit cards, or specialized payment solutions like pre-paid gift cards or digital wallets like CanPay. As Cannabis laws evolve and societal acceptance increases, there is potential for future changes that could enable credit card payments in dispensaries.

Safety and Quality Assurance

The CCC’s stringent regulations prioritize the safety of consumers first. Before a cannabis product reaches the dispensary shelves, it is tracked by a universal software in a process known as “seed-to-sale tracking” and subjected to rigorous testing by state-approved labs for contaminants such as pesticides, heavy metals, and microbial or thinning agents. This testing guarantees that any product you buy from a dispensary like Zahara Cannabis is safe and reliable.

Product Labeling and Packaging

Transparent and accurate product labeling is another important piece of the consumer experience, ensuring that the dispensaries provide consumers with essential information, including THC and CBD content, serving sizes, and other warnings. While testing for Cannabinoids and other contaminants is required as part of the testing regulations, testing for Terpenes is not currently required. As a consumer, you will find select cultivators such as Aruna or Greencare Collective who test for terpenes so that the consumer knows the full scope of what they are purchasing regarding flower products.

Access and Availability

The regulations govern the licensing process, determining the number of dispensaries and their respective locations across Massachusetts. This framework aims to ensure equitable access to Cannabis products for all residents who are not able, or do not wish, to participate in the Medical Marijuana Program. By controlling the number and placement of dispensaries, the CCC fosters fair market competition, prevents oversaturation, and ensures that consumers have convenient access to legal cannabis products while discouraging illicit market activity. 

Customer Experience and Education

Dispensaries like Zahara Cannabis in Attleboro, MA, play a vital role in providing a positive customer experience and breaking the stigma of Cannabis use. We are responsible for educating consumers about Cannabis products, their effects, and responsible consumption methods and suggested doses for those of different tolerance levels. The CCC regulations emphasize the importance of employee training through yearly courses, ensuring that dispensary staff is knowledgeable and well-equipped to guide consumers to a choice that will be best for them.


The Cannabis Control Commission’s regulations in Massachusetts, while not perfect, are designed to foster a safe, reliable, and consumer-centric experience in the Massachusetts Cannabis market. By prioritizing safety, transparent labeling, responsible marketing, equitable access, and education, the CCC ensures that consumers can enjoy cannabis products while making informed decisions for themselves. We at Zahara Cannabis, your local Attleboro, MA dispensary, are committed to upholding these regulations and providing an exceptional consumer experience while advocating for your rights as consumers to access safe and fair products, marketing, and social experiences.
