Temescal Wellness will open its Pittsfield store for recreational sales on Tuesday.

A marijuana dispensary in Pittsfield will become the seventh recreational store in the state when it opens its doors on Tuesday.

Temescal Wellness, a marijuana company operating in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maryland, received a “commence operations” notice from the state’s Cannabis Control Commission this week, permitting the company to open its Hudson and Pittsfield stores for recreational sales after three calendar days.

Both locations already operate as medical dispensaries. The 3,000-square-foot Pittsfield store will be the company’s first adult-use recreational marijuana facility.

Temescal Wellness said Wednesday that its Hudson store may not open for a couple more weeks, after town police said they hadn’t received or approved a traffic mitigation plan from the company. The plan is not required in an application to the state commission, but a Temescal Wellness spokeswoman said the company’s “operational and local requirements will dictate” the opening day.
