BASK to provide free trees in celebration of National Arbor Day 

The Fairhaven medical cannabis dispensary will be donating tree seedlings to medical cannabis patients this Friday and Saturday

FAIRHAVEN, MA / April 26th, 2018 / BASK, Inc. (BASK), the only Registered Marijuana Dispensary in Southeastern Massachusetts, will be celebrating National Arbor Day on April 27th by donating a Blue Spruce seedling to each visiting certified, registered Massachusetts cannabis patient until they are gone.  BASK is encouraging patients to take a tree and choose a place to plant it where it may thrive for their enjoyment for years to come.

Each tree planted will remove 48 pounds of C02 from the atmosphere each year and over a ton of C02 during it’s life time.  “If we can plant all of these trees this spring we will help remove thousands of pounds of CO2 each year and help beautify the Massachusetts landscape,” said Chapman Dickerson, CEO of Bask.

Arbor Day is an annual observance that celebrates the role of trees in our lives and promotes tree planting and care. As a formal holiday, it was first observed in 1872, in Nebraska, but tree planting festivals are as old as civilization. The tree has appeared throughout history and literature as the symbol of life.

Each seedling will be bagged with soil by the horticultural experts at BASK and will include specific planting directions.  Participants are asked to take a photo of their planted tree and email it to or post it to the BASK Facebook page (@baskfairhaven) or the BASK Instagram page (@BaskinFairhaven) for a chance to win an Arbor Day T-Shirt or other prizes.

Trees effectively reduce energy bills, increase property values and improve public health. Anyone reading this only has to take five seconds to notice how they feel when they’re standing amongst the trees. Are you less stressed? Has your mood improved? Do you like the way you feel? The answers are nearly always, “Yes!”

Let’s get together and celebrate the importance of Trees!

FAIRHAVEN — BASK — formerly known as Coastal Compassion — will open the SouthCoast’s first medical marijuana dispensary next Thursday, Feb. 15.

Over the past two weeks, the dispensary has been accepting appointments during what President of the Board Tim Keogh referred to as a “soft launch,” and will continue accepting appointments both today and Saturday.

Moving forward, the official opening will feature extended hours of operation — 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. — Thursday through Sunday.

Eventually, BASK intends to open doors seven days a week with a staff of roughly 30 full-time employees. When that transition happens, according to Keogh, will depend on inventory. He says that since the announcement that the dispensary would begin accepting appointments last week BASK has “had quite a bit of activity on the site.”

The dispensary has had state approval to commence sales since the end of December. Since, the transition from Coastal Compassion to BASK happened, along with preparations for doors to open. During this time, employees were commencing mock sales, curating and receiving packaging, as well as pre-packaging the product for sale.

Keogh refers to the period from late December until now as a “bit of a blur.”

“In the last month we’ve gone through the branding, the logo, the color scheme, into a format that’s compliant with state packaging, out to the printer, back in from the printer, on to packing, so there was that whole piece,” said Keogh, before detailing more of the process, which included getting the website ready for launch and gathering patient education materials.

Aside from some wholesale edible or topical products, all cannabis is grown in-house at BASK. According to the dispensary’s website, the menu will change daily and feature options including the cannabis flower, pre-rolled joints, edibles, and rosin.

FAIRHAVEN — In early October, Tim Keogh, who was then the board president of Coastal Compassion, spoke about the opening of a medical marijuana facility at 2 Pequod Road.

At that time, Keogh guessed doors would be open “in the fourth quarter of 2017.” However, following scheduling delays and the holiday season, the dispensary has both rebranded and begun scheduling appointments.

Now operating under the name Bask Inc., Keogh stated in an email that the dispensary will be “doing a soft launch over the next two weeks with appointments only.” Those appointments will be booked exclusively through its website,
