Lantern customers can shop four ways:

1. Shop Lantern for a specific cannabis product 

Cannabis products come in many varieties, not only in terms of the actual product itself (so, for example, flower versus edibles vs  topicals) but also in the components used to create the product itself. Cannabinoids, which are chemical substances occurring naturally within the cannabis plant, have different properties. Cannabinoids bind naturally with receptors in the human brain, which then stimulates their various effects on the brain and body. 

Understanding a little more about cannabinoids is helpful in curating your personal experience. Here is some basic background to get you started:

Common Cannabinoids

THC is a psychoactive cannabinoid most associated with “feeling high,” or euphoric. Meanwhile, 
CBD is a cannabinoid that binds to brain receptors more weakly than THC, so is milder in effect, and suggested for treating symptoms of pain, anxiety, insomnia, and more. 

THC and CBD are the most well known cannabinoids, but research shows there are over 100 additional cannabinoids in cannabis. Lantern delivers products that contain varying amounts of these cannabinoids, as each recipe will promote a different effect for the consumer. 


  • Sativa: Sativa has higher levels of THC than indica, so is associated with an elevated mood and heightened sense of creativity.  Sativa is a great option for social gatherings or on occasions when you need to increase focus.
  • Indica: With a higher level of CBD than sativa, Indica lends itself to a mellower high. Indica can promote better sleep, aid in pain relief, and ease anxiety.
  • Hybrid: Any of these cannabinoid strains may be mixed in a hybrid strain, whether the indica-dominant, sativa-dominant, or evenly crossbred to create a desired effect.  In fact, most of the cannabis products Lantern delivers are hybrid strains. 


Terpenes are aromatic compounds found in many plants, including the cannabis plant, and along with cannabinoids, terpenes also enhance and affect cannabis products in various ways, which means they ultimately result in different experiences for the consumer. 

Terpenes are responsible for the smell of the plant, but research also shows that the terpenes found in cannabis also affect the body in ways not unlike cannabinoids do, but with the key difference that the body absorbs and uses terpene compounds in different ways than it uses cannabinoids.  

Since Lantern delivers from the best cannabis dispensaries in Greater Boston, our inventory includes the full spectrum of terpenes’ potential magic. You might check out Citrus Samurai Sauce, for example, with its unique terpene profile makeup that creates its sticky consistency perfect for rolling the Terpwin Station Flower for a smooth daytime high. 

Natural flavors and ingredients

Along with the naturally occurring cannabinoids and terpenes in cannabis, today’s top cannabis dispensaries in Boston also use an assortment of natural ingredients which can be added to cannabis products to enhance certain flavors, aromas, and effects. Think coconut oil, lavender, lemon oil, and mint– just to get you started. That’s why a Lantern customer can choose from delectable products like the Apple Fritter Strain, Strawberry Gummies, or the soothing botanical Lemon Ginger Topical Salve.

Lantern partners with the best dispensaries in Boston, dispensaries that are on the cutting-edge of cannabis science. We detail the strains used in all the products we deliver so that our customers can shop for an exact flavor, aroma, and texture as well curate the overall experience they seek. Those components create the aroma, flavor, texture, and most importantly, the overall effect of the consumer will experience. Lantern allows shoppers to choose from a variety of cannabis product categories, and within those categories, to select products that offer a spectrum of benefits and experiences.
