Pre-ordering is a recommended method of purchasing recreational cannabis with us. By using our pre-order system, you can select the time of pick-up and expedite your visit to our location. We cannot change the pick-up time once an order has been placed.

How does it work?

It’s simple!

Head to one of our Maine store menus and pick out the products you’re interested in. When your cart is full, head to the checkout and fill out the required information including your name (as it is listed on your ID), birthday, and cell phone number. From there, we’ll send you the following text/email messages:

  • Your order has been received
  • Your order has been confirmed
  • Your order is ready for pick-up

When you arrive, you’ll be asked to show your pick-up text/email.

Do I pay online?

How far in advance can I order?

We offer same-day pick-ups. All orders must be picked up the same day they were placed. At this time, we are not holding any orders overnight. We cannot make changes once an order has been placed.

Products & Purchasing

Am I allowed to purchase recreational marijuana if I don’t live in Maine?

Yes, you can purchase recreational marijuana at our dispensaries in South Portland, Waterville, and Bangor with a government-issued ID that verifies you are 21 or older. Valid forms of identification include driver’s licenses, passports, or military IDs.

How much recreational marijuana or how many recreational marijuana products am I allowed to purchase per visit?

In Maine, recreational marijuana customers may legally purchase up to two and a half ounces of cannabis that includes no more than five grams of concentrate, whether sold alone, contained in an inhalant delivery system, or contained in edible marijuana products.

How strong are the recreational marijuana products?

Recreational cannabis products range in strengths and dosages. Everyone responds differently to cannabis as there is no consistent measurement of effects. We encourage all new customers to start low and go slow to learn how it affects them and to become familiar with their consumption limits. Don’t be shy asking for help at the dispensary – our highly trained staff will answer any questions you may have.

Are you cash only?

Nope, we also take debit cards as an alternate form of payment. We do not accept credit cards or Apple Pay!


Where am I allowed to consume recreational marijuana products?

Consumption of recreational marijuana may only occur in privately designated areas where smoking and/or vaping is allowed. This does not include Theory Wellness (South Portland, Waterville, or Bangor) dispensaries. Please keep in mind that public consumption of marijuana may result in fines.


What are the rules for transporting recreational marijuana products?

Transporting recreational marijuana is similar to transporting alcohol wherein you cannot have an open container of recreational marijuana or marijuana products in the passenger area. An “open container” is defined as having a package with a broken seal or a package from which contents have been partially removed.
