Maine has seen a boom in medicinal and recreational marijuana shops all over the state since the state legalized the sale of recreational marijuana. According to a Bangor Daily News Article from 2020, there were 216 vendors at the time, waiting for their licenses to sell recreational marijuana.

Ever since Maine began giving out licenses, many vacant buildings that have housed everything from a Dunkin' Donuts to an ice cream shop, have been converted to sell either medicinal or recreational marijuana. Most Mainers today aren't very far from a place where they can buy.

Just how many cannabis shops are there in Maine? I was surprised. According to Wandering Through Maine, there are currently 91 licensed cannabis dispensaries in the state as of January 24, 2024. The list changes frequently as more open up and some don't get enough business to stay afloat and end up closing.

If you're going to open a cannabis shop though, you need a clever, catchy and sometimes punny name and Maine is an abundance of those too. There are several obvious things to put in your name, but the ones that stand out are the ones that are original and sometimes even make you chuckle at the creativity the owners used to come up with their names.

We've gathered up 25 of the best names of cannabis shops in Maine and ranked them based on creativity and cleverness. They're all good, but they get better as we count down to number one. Which one is your favorite?
