As a state-certified and women-owned business in the Merrimack Valley area of Massachusetts, Full Harvest Moonz is a unique recreational cannabis dispensary dedicated to providing individuals with the highest quality cannabis products, care, service and education. Co-founders Janet Kupris and Michaela Ristuccia have created a warm, welcoming and relaxed atmosphere to support their customers and help them align with the right adult-use cannabis products for their individual needs—body, mind and spirit.

Ristuccia holds a degree from the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Science. On top of this, she is a reiki master and trained in advanced Spiritual Response Therapy. Ristuccia also has hands-on experience in cannabis cultivation, which has helped her to better know which plants and products are best suited for each customer. She is passionate about her energy work and plant spirit medicine.

Medicinally, cannabis products work to support the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is a biological system composed of endocannabinoids, receptors and enzymes that are believed to help regulate a variety of functions in humans including sleep, mood, appetite and pain sensation. Ristuccia explains, “Each individual’s endocannabinoid system is unique, like a fingerprint. Cannabis strains can have various medicinal effects on this system. In addition, the cannabis plant carries a high, energetic vibration which can address the negative lower vibrations associated with illness and stress. Cannabis actually lifts the vibration of a person’s energy field to help wellness prevail.”

Kupris has a degree in holistic nutrition and has always had a passion for plant-based medicine. She earned her professional certificate in cannabis science and medicine from the University of Vermont, Larner College of Medicine. Prior to launching Full Harvest Moonz, Kupris created and conducted educational presentations to major hospitals and medical professionals. Kupris says, “Education is an important part of our work, and finding the right product for each customer is a process. We seek to create balance and wellness from within. This requires patience, compassion, empathy and listening.”

By applying cannabis plant medicine with energy healing, Full Harvest Moonz is redesigning how they care for people. “In the end, I think cannabis can help bring balance and health to us all of us, and we really want to help spread the word about this magnificent plant,” Kupris adds.

The Full Harvest Moonz menu offers flower, edible, vape, pre-roll, concentrates and topical products. The company takes great care in sourcing most of its product locally from small-crafts cultivators. It is open to anyone over 21 years old.
