Whether you’re in South Portland or downtown Portland, you’re in luck. Meet SeaWeed Co., a beautiful and state-of-the-art cannabis dispensary with two locations in Portland, Maine.
Their South Portland store was the first adult-use cannabis dispensary in Maine. It’s basically a slice of the state’s history. They offer a long list of high-quality products across several notable brands, including some of their own branded products, like the potent Live Resin Cartridges and rotating Grower Of The Month specials.
Shopping here is a breath of fresh air, or a swim in a salty sea, if you will. The dispensary’s budtenders are known as Mermaids, and they’re flapping their tails with excitement to connect you with products that make a difference. This dispensary is on a mission to help you understand the power of cannabis and how it can enhance well-being.
Be sure to stop by one of their stunning locations during your visit to Portland, Maine.
Like most states, it’s essential to be mindful of the local laws regarding public cannabis consumption. In Maine, it’s illegal to consume cannabis in public. It might be in your best interest to consume cannabis on a private residence and then head out to relax in the great outdoors.
If you happen to find a quiet, isolated spot in public, consume at your own risk. Once your high mind is ready to chill, head over to the beautiful and scenic Eastern Promenade.
It’s a large park with stunning views of Casco Bay and the surrounding islands. Stroll along the walking trails, plunk down on a picnic bench, or check out the tennis and basketball courts. There are also tons of events in the summertime, making Eastern Promenade a must-visit spot to soak in Maine’s culture and natural beauty.
Don’t worry. There’s much more on the menu than duck fat at Duckfat. This restaurant is a local favorite.
Anyone who stops by for a bite to eat raves about the delicious fries cooked in duck fat, not to mention other offerings like sandwiches, soups, salads, and other tasty eats.
Although it’s delicious, it’s also reasonably priced, making it a great spot for a casual lunch or dinner with your best buds. The indoor seating is rustic and cozy, and there’s also outdoor seating available.
There’s always something going on at the State Theatre. This historic venue sits in the heart of Portland, Maine, and is known for its amazing acoustics and vibrant shows.
Here, you’ll find concerts from famous and local artists, theatre shows, events, stand-up comedy, and much more. Fun fact, the venue underwent a major restoration in 2010 to restore the interior back to its original art deco design.
It’s a timeless spot that’s been keeping audiences entertained since 1929. Check out their website for which shows are happening during your stay
