Ascend is currently operating in Illinois and New Jersey, with plans to quickly expand within both states and Massachusetts.

Illinois
The first Ascend store in Illinois opened in Springfield in November 2020, with an additional store in Fairview Heights later in 2021.

Ascend Illinois (formerly known as Illinois Supply & Provisions) is currently the sixth-largest dispensary group in the state. Ascend currently operates three retail locations, the flagship (serving the St. Louis area) and two stores within Springfield. Ascend is also looking to open a store in Fairview Heights in 2021.

New Jersey
Ascend currently has one location open in Montclair, formerly Greenleaf Compassion Center, and has plans to open two additional state-of-the-art retail locations in the emerging New Jersey market. In the spring of 2021, we plan to open our second store in Rochelle Park (Paramus-area) and later in the year our flagship store in Hoboken. Ascend is excited to bring a world-class cannabis experience to New Jersey consumers.

Massachusetts
With three stores scheduled to open soon, Ascend is taking the burgeoning Massachusetts market by storm, providing an accessible, state-of-the-art shopping experience to the state’s vibrant cannabis community. Stores will include a flagship downtown location on Friend Street that is poised to be the largest dispensary on the East Coast, a second location in Newton’s desirable retail corridor, and a third store in New Bedford.
Activism
Ascend and Last Prisoner Project
While we understand and appreciate how fortunate we are to be in a position to help build and guide the future of modern cannabis, we are also acutely aware of the lives that have been destroyed, especially in minority communities, through decades of unjust laws and inequitable enforcement.

There are currently over 40,000 nonviolent criminals sitting in prison for cannabis offenses. This costs taxpayers billions of dollars per year and has done immeasurable damage to the families of the incarcerated.

We think this is unacceptable, which is why we have teamed up with the Last Prisoner Project through a donation match in 2020.
