Dabs. Love drops. Stress-squashing pre-rolls. Is photosynthesis great, or what? At Ascend, we believe there is endless potential to what cannabis can be as a product and as a positive force in culture. We are a multi-state, muliti-use, multi-anything store with a menu designed to cater to individual tastes and interests.

We build all of our locations, online and in-store, to be efficient, uncomplicated, and informative. Our budtenders are here to steer, nudge, recommend, or gently push you to discover new things. Or re-discover the old ones. We are locally grown, manufactured, and tested to be one with you and one with your communities. 

Shop in store. Or order online and pick up. There are no bad choices. Only high-quality product and people that are working every day to make your cannabis day the best on the planet. Enjoy.

Ascend is currently operating in Illinois, Michigan, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Ohio and Pennsylvania.


Ascend and Last Prisoner Project

The truth is, we are a company that is very fortunate to be in a position to help build and guide the future of modern cannabis. But 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 cannabis offenders sitting in prison for doing things that are now legal in a growing number of states. This costs taxpayers billions of dollars per year and does immeasurable damage to the families of the incarcerated.

Fighting this battle is not our expertise. But it is the driving purpose of our partnership with the Last Prisoner Project, whose unwavering mission is to not rest and not stop until the last cannabis prisoner is set free.
