From a 20-year fascination and interest in the cannabis plant and its properties, Paul’s Boutique Nursery was created by a husband and wife team in 2015. Today, with the commitment of the entire Paul’s Boutique family, the company is one of Maine’s leading medical marijuana caregivers. What started out in a renovated automobile repair shop is now a 4,000 square foot, state-of-the-art grow facility.
In the rapidly growing and ever-changing cannabis industry, not only here in Maine, but nationwide, Paul’s Boutique team has proven the future is bright. They are a company that focuses on providing a high level of products and services. By creating a vertically integrated business, with rigid quality standards from seed to sale, Paul’s Boutique has made a major commitment to being on the forefront of the Maine market.
Paul’s Boutique’s quality, small-batch products have been recognized by the cannabis community in the form of several awards. They entered their first cannabis competition in 2017 and medaled in The Secret Cup, as well as the High Times Cannabis Cups. Their strains are clone only and will not be found anywhere else, despite the fact that others may sometimes share a common name.
Their latest business expansion is the opening of a beautiful new storefront in Windham. This allows Paul’s Boutique to better serve the medical community of Maine, as well as many card-holding, out-of-state visitors who travel Route 302 while vacationing in Maine.
The store stocks locally crafted items. Paul’s Boutique has carefully chosen CBD vendors that are local cultivators, extractors, and producers. The store will also carry a full array of flowers, concentrates, vape pens, and edibles. Paul’s Boutique apparel will also be available, as will accessories such as functional glass art and rolling papers. The walls are adorned with in-house ‘pot’ography, which is attractively displayed and available for sale to those interested in artwork for their personal collection.
Paul’s Boutique Kitchen is now licensed and running, producing a line of quality, fresh, cannabis-infused edibles. Starting with fine Belgian chocolate and local ingredients, when possible, items include varieties of chocolate bars, truffles, hard candies, mints, and caramels. Soon to come is a line of sugar-free edibles for those with dietary restrictions.
It is uncertain how and when the cannabis industry in Maine will change again, as local municipalities wrestle with the “opt-in” dilemma, the legislature works its way through implementation of adult-use cannabis, and the federal government debates its outdated position on marijuana. What is certain is that Paul’s Boutique Nursery will continue to provide the outstanding service and quality products for which it has become known.
