At Higher Grounds, we curate a selection of Maine's plant-based wisdom and power. As the first cannabis and coffee shop on the East Coast, our love for coffee, profound respect for cannabis, and passion for supporting Maine's locally-owned, independent artisan growers and crafters shapes both our menu and our advocacy. We’re a founding member of the Maine Craft Cannabis Association, a group of independent cannabis businesses, advocates, and enthusiasts fighting for fair, local, and craft-oriented cannabis policy.

We work with all Maine medical patients and also with most visiting medical cannabis patients and have a Nurse Practitioner on staff to help with your health questions and care plans. Schedule an appointment today.

Our location on Wharf Street in Portland's historic Old Port is a little plant oasis. In our shop you’ll find some of Maine’s best cannabis and its best coffee—you might find they could even be complimentary! Whether you’re new to the plant or an old head, we’ll have something for you. Welcome to the Higher Grounds of Maine.
