Buds N Roses is the second recreational cannabis shop that opened in Blackstone. The Blackstone community has been waiting for this for months as Buds N Roses actively posted content on social media. Today, March 12, Buds N Roses finally had their grand opening.
State Representative Mike Soter and Blackstone Selectman Daniel Keefe cut the ribbon signaling the grand opening of Buds N Roses.
Buds N Roses is owned by the same owner of Family Grocer across the street, Gurpreet Kalra. One of the first to propose opening a cannabis shop in town, Buds N Roses finally received its license from the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission on February 11, a day before Blackstone’s first cannabis shop opened.

All cannabis shops in Blackstone has a host community agreement and an impact fee. What this means is that Buds N Roses pays 5% to the town of Blackstone – 3% community impact fee and 2% gross sales. The 5% collected is dedicated to Blackstone’s infrastructure and public safety improvements in the surrounding neighborhood of Buds N Roses.
