Brothers open head shop for the home grower

GREAT BARRINGTON— As a burgeoning cannabis industry continues to blossom in Berkshire County, dispensaries aren’t the only new shops to open.

Brothers Daniel and Max Lowenstein, who operate the county’s only cannabis accessory shop that also specializes in cannabis growing accessories, said they have high hopes of seeing other new business models take off as the marijuana industry continues to mature.

Daniel, 28, and Max, 23, both Berkshire natives, opened their brick-and-mortar location for Berkshire Glass and Grow last May after running the business online for about one year. In addition to smoking accessories, the brothers also sell plant nutrients, growing tents and other equipment necessary for cultivating cannabis both indoors and outdoors.

Daniel said the two had wanted to go into business together for some time and had initially kicked around ideas ranging from landscaping to food service. The Lowensteins eventually settled on the cannabis field because they saw it as an early chance to break into an exciting new industry.
