April 20th is notorious for being THE day to celebrate and indulge in the highs of Mary Jane. Historically, the phrase “4/20”, refers to a group of California high school students’ preferred smoke time, and their pot-fueled quest for a rumored, yet elusive, crop of marijuana plants.
Thankfully, the stigma of marijuana use has since shifted, and you can find plenty of dispensaries for both medical and recreational adult use all across Portland and the rest of the state. Whether you enjoy toking, tasting, or tincture – Portland, Maine has plenty of options to find high quality flower, CBD, and more!
Check out our list of dispensaries, head-shops, and weed-inspired events, as we get closer to the marijuana enthusiast’s favorite day of the year.
With the dispensary business in full bloom, our list shows only a handful of the many great options around the city. DM us on Instagram @portlandoldport, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to share your event or tell us your favorite dispensary or headshop today!
