SeaWeed is a retreat-inspired marijuana dispensary that embraces the restorative powers of cannabis. In its various forms -flowers, edibles, vapors- cannabis connects us to healthy rituals that keep mind and body energized and balanced. To visit SeaWeed is to be transported to a destination where your comfort and well-being is our highest concern.
The flagship store of the recreational cannibas brand SeaWeed Co., the Running Hill location borders a protected wetland, welcoming customers to a lush oasis on a spacious outdoor deck to host everything from yoga classes to intimate concerts.
The sophisticated yet approachable interiors and flexible open floor plan further support the brand mission that this establishment serve as both a retail space and community gathering place.
In a nod to the nautical moniker of the showroom, the dramatic wood-clad, inverted-hip ceiling suggests the hull of a ship. The exterior wood cladding is locally-harvested white cedar while the interior casework was also Maine-made with white ash.
