About Us

About Us

Ocean Breeze is a family-run cannabis company located in Gloucester — the oldest fishing port in the country, on the North Shore of Massachusetts. Inspired by the hard work and grit that runs through the town’s history and its people, we landed here to build our flagship space and share our storied cannabis with the community. Our team is an extension of our family — a group of people who share our motivation to work hard and work together. Our goal is to provide a deeper and more layered experience for our customers — one they won’t find anywhere else.

About Our Facility

Equipped with the latest tech, and paired with time-tested methods that have a proven track record of success, our facility is 43,000 square feet and includes 2,200 square foot grow rooms built with insulated aluminum panels, multiple-tier growing tables, air movers in each room, and third-party nutrient monitoring. Our lighting system includes LEDs supplemented with a mixed checkerboard spectrum of HPS and CMH—providing the perfect combination for healthy and vibrant plant growth.
