BELFAST – As people in Maine continue to self-isolate, the demand for medicinal marijuana continues to rise.
“Like with other commodities we have seen that there is going to be an increase when people feel like there may be a scarcity coming soon. We did prepare for it luckily we worked with our local vendors and our whole team here on the cultivation and retail end,” 1 Mill, a Belfast medicinal marijuana dispensary, owner, Paul T. McCarrier, said.
McCarrier added his customers haven’t been panic buying and there is no shortage of supply.
“With my work with the Maine Craft Cannabis Association we’ve been talking with our members across the state and everybody has seen an uptick in sales and the most concern that people have heard though is that they don’t want to run out of this medicinal therapy,” 1 Mill owner, Paul T. McCarrier, said.
Whether his shop benefits from uptick in sales or not, he’s just happy to see his customers benefiting health wise.
“When you have people who come in and say they haven’t slept in days and you’re able to work with them and provide them a specific treatment that comes from medical cannabis and they return and say I can finally sleep and I want to get the same thing again. When we can repeat that again again and again that’s when it feels good,” McCarrier said.
He added that 1 Mill offers curbside pickup. For more information you can visit their website.
