From a twenty 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, our company is one of Maine’s leading medical marijuana caregivers. What started out in a renovated automobile repair shop is now a 4000 square-foot, state of the art grow facility. While keeping up with its descriptive name, Paul’s Boutique purposefully chooses to keep an artisanal approach to all its products and services. Our company has now expanded to also include a cannabis extract processing lab with a commercial kitchen and a retail store front. We focus on providing high level products and services by creating a vertically integrated business with rigid quality standards from seed to sale. We have made a major commitment to being on the forefront of the Maine market.
The latest expansion of our business is the opening of our charming new storefront in Windham. This allows us to better serve the medical community of Maine as well as many card-holding out of state visitors who travel Highway 302.
With many years of combined cultivation experience, our team offers nothing but top shelf, hand picked strains of clean, pest, mold and mildew free products. Almost all of our genetics are started by seed using a rigorous elimination process and only the most desirable genotypes are kept. Allowing us to have exclusive genetics that can not be found elsewhere. A few of our cultivars are highly sought after clone only genetics that we have acquired. Our plants are cultivated in a pristine custom built commercial space. Our grow rooms are sheeted in food grade PVC siding which allows for complete wash down of walls after every harvest. Air handlers and duct work have UVC bulbs installed to neutralize any spores or contaminants while all condensate water is recycled after a process of sediment filtering and reverse osmosis using glass enclosed UVC bulbs which ensure complete sterilization of H2O. We follow a strict Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program which can be highlighted with a weekly introduction of predatory mites and nematodes. To help ensure clean lines, our grow rooms utilize a "sterile attire in, sterile attire out" policy. Our facility has substantial supplemental lighting (plasma induction lamps) in all flowering rooms ensuring proper development of flowers and trichomes. Finally, all flowers are quality controlled by a final hand trim which yields to a finer product.
The recent addition of a Tier 1 Non-hazardous Extraction license has enabled our company to produce a variety of “Single Source” non solvent extractions. From coins to jams and butters, using quality & fresh starting material, Paul’s Boutique Extracts is utilizing whole plant fresh frozen material and pharmaceutical freeze dryers to preserve terpene rich solventless hash. We have invested in a top-notch automated dual pressure mechanical press that consistently produces quality batches of “Live Rosin” and our premium “Rosin Coins” which consist of screened and graded fresh trichomes, a product that stands out in an industry full of hash rosin.
Paul’s Boutique Kitchen is now licensed and running, producing a line of quality, fresh cannabis infused edibles. Items include varieties of chocolate bars, truffles, hard candies, mints, and caramel using fine Belgian chocolate and local ingredients when possible. Soon to come is a line of health-conscious sugar-free edibles for those with dietary restrictions. This in-house kitchen enables our team to produce a delicious array of edibles that are accurately dosed, tested, and packaged professionally, and enables us to source all of our products in house and keep a watchful eye on quality control. This ensures all products meet our strict expectations for cleanliness and quality, while being offered at a fair price.
The Paul’s Boutique storefront is located in North Windham on Highway 302 at 8 Crimson Drive in a highly visible location with ample parking. A private consultation room is available to discuss any questions or concerns about cannabis and its uses. A warm and inviting check-in area, as well as multiple bud-tending stations, help create a smooth and pleasant shopping experience. Our store also carries a full array of flowers, concentrates, vape pens and edibles. Paul’s Boutique has carefully chosen CBD vendors who are local cultivators, extractors, and producers. Paul’s Boutique apparel and accessories, such as functional glass art and rolling papers, are available. Our walls are adorned with in-house ‘pot’ography for sale to those interested in artwork for their personal use.
Paul’s Boutique is deeply involved in the local Community as members of the Chamber of Commerce and as supporters of community outreach programs such as Riding to the Top, Camp Sunshine, Outdoors Again, Windham High School, Windham Food Pantry, Neighbors Helping Neighbors, Maine Game Warden Association, Windham Firefighters, Tri Area (Windham, Westbrook, & Gorham) Police Force and others. Additionally, our owner was recently appointed to Windham’s Marijuana Task Force for Cannabis Regulation.
The Paul’s Boutique family’s focus of high quality small batch product is also being recognized by the cannabis community in the form of several awards. We entered our first cannabis competition in 2017 and medaled in The Secret Cup, as well as the High Times Cannabis Cups. Our strains are clone only and will not be found elsewhere, in spite of the fact that others may sometimes share a common name. It is certain is that Paul’s Boutique Nursery will continue to offer the outstanding service and quality products for which we have already become known!
