PORTLAND, Maine, March 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Sweet Dirt, a Maine-based, vertically integrated cannabis company, today announced the grand opening of its second adult use cannabis store. Located at 1207 Forest Avenue, the new store will open its doors at 10am ET, Monday, March 22, and is among the first dispensaries in the city of Portland to open for recreational cannabis purchases.
More than a year ago, Sweet Dirt secured the iconic ‘Wok Inn’ property on the highly trafficked Morrill’s Corner, at the intersection of Forest Avenue, Allen Avenue, Stevens Avenue, and the Portland & Rochester Railroad. The long-vacant location has since undergone extensive renovations. The resulting 2,000 square foot storefront includes contemporary fabrication and finishes plus state-of-the-art systems and security. Sweet Dirt is proud to be part of the revitalization of Morrill’s Corner. The renovated property includes a new parking lot, improved curb work and the installation of sidewalks, trees and landscaping.
The Sweet Dirt Portland store will showcase a thoughtfully curated mix of Maine-grown and Maine-made products including dried flower, edibles, concentrates, hemp, CBD and ancillary products.

Combining top-shelf artisanal cannabis, friendly and knowledgeable budtenders, and a beautiful and inviting store, the Sweet Dirt Portland dispensary offers the ultimate cannabis shopping experience.
