Here is the Table of Contents for some common questions about weed dispensaries and laws regarding purchase and use in Maine.

How To Buy Marijuana in Maine as a Recreational User?

**I’m not a lawyer or official, and have summarized the laws/statutes that I’ve found on Maine government websites. If you have any doubt as to the legality of something, consult an official person!**

Maine residents 21 and older can now legally buy marijuana as an adult. However, they cannot consume the drug in public or in a vehicle. You can and will be arrested for public use or OUI (operating under the influence).

Side note: Marijuana remains illegal under federal law. Yep. As crazy as it sounds, marijuana is apparently still illegal under federal law (2022).

The state allows adults who are at least 21 years old to buy two ounces of marijuana every day from a licensed dispensary (no medical card required). The state also allows people to grow/have up to three mature, 12 immature, and unlimited seedling marijuana plants at home.

The law only allows adult users to purchase marijuana. You can still get arrested for giving marijuana to a minor, even if they are an approved user under the law because a caregiver applied for a medical marijuana card for them.

What Type Of Products Are Available for Purchase?

I’m definitely no Jim Ignatowski, but all the recreational dispensaries in Maine carry their preferred products, so you might want to try different things from different dispensaries. Here’s a Taxi clip for those who don’t know Rev. Jim. (I didn’t know how to shorten the video, but the scene ends at ~2:25)

Each dispensary will carry different products, but here is a list of typical products you might find at a dispensary:

➡️ Edibles are foods infused with THC. They are meant for ingestion and can be eaten or drunk.

➡️ Concentrates are oils, waxes, or salts that have been extracted from plants. They are meant for vaporization, inhalation, or sublingual application.

➡️ Flowers are the leaves and buds from the marijuana plant and are meant in bud form.

➡️ Tinctures are liquids intended to be ingested sublingually or taken by mouth.

➡️ Other products include marijuana-infused beverages, marijuana-infused topical creams, marijuana-infused sprays, marijuana-infused suppositories, and marijuana-infused vitamins.

Yes. Apparently Maine residents can order marijuana products and have them delivered to their homes. At one time only medical marijuana was allowed to be delivered, but according to this, it looks like recreational weed can now be delivered as well.

Check with your favorite store to see what delivery options they offer.

Basic Maine Laws About Marijuana Purchase & Use

The law only allows adult users to purchase marijuana. You can still get arrested for giving marijuana to a minor, even if they are an approved user under the law because a caregiver applied for a medical marijuana card for them.

You are also not allowed to take marijuana out of Maine. Technically. It’s not like they stop you at the NH border, but they *will* stop you at the Canadian border.

You are also not allowed to mail any to anywhere. Buy it and use it here. Just don’t use it in Acadia National Park, which is federal land and you will be breaking federal law.

Don’t use it in a vehicle, either.

Use it only in your private space. Note: As with cigarette smoking, the owner of a rental unit may prohibit use on their property.

Important if you are visiting Acadia National Park

Because pot is illegal according to the federal government, you are not allowed to even possess it if you are on federal land or in a National Park, like, oh, Acadia. Leave it in your hotel room just in case.

Recreational vs Medicinal Marijuana In Maine

Maine originally only had medical marijuana dispensaries. Now that recreational use is legal, there are both medical and recreational dispensaries in Maine. A dispensary may not sell both types from the same location.

I’ve also been told that medical cannabis is less expensive than recreational cannabis.

From what I understand, and I could be wrong, is that dispensaries that are medical only can add recreational to their license, but can only sell to people with medical marijuana cards.

Conclusion: Maine Recreational Dispensaries 2023

Photo of one of the recreational dispensaries in Maine.

So, does Maine have recreational dispensaries? Hopefully, that question has already been answered!

There’s all there is to know about Maine recreational dispensaries–2023.

Maine has taken a huge step forward in the marijuana industry. Now that recreational use is here, it’s going to be important to keep up with new laws and regulations as they come.

If you are a tourist visiting from out of state, you can purchase up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana. You cannot possess more than 2.5 ounces, and you cannot consume marijuana in public.

Marijuana remains illegal under federal law, and federal authorities have vowed to arrest and prosecute anyone breaking state marijuana laws. Please don’t carry your pot into Acadia National Park–just in case!

As for ‘are there dispensaries in Maine’ or ‘how many dispensaries are in Maine’, I’ve searched and searched and added every one I could find. Maybe there are more without a web presence, but for now, I’m going with 89, +/- 5 (recreational) for those I may have missed.
