At the Wellness Connection of Maine, it’s only natural for us to give back and get involved.

We do this every day through the four attributes that define our company: reliability of product, being good-naturedtrailblazing for the future, and having a personal approach in everything we do.

While the cannabis industry is still new, we’ve been here since 2011, advocating for access, high-quality product, and transparency by advancing scientific methods and shaping new public policy.

Each year, we commit a share of our revenue to facilitating access to cannabis for patients, supporting local communities through donations or volunteering, improving the environment and growing Maine’s local economy by creating jobs.

We are proud of the work we’ve done and look forward to forging new roads in the cannabis culture.

As Earth Day approaches every April, we like to take the time to share some of our green and community efforts. Here are some highlights from 2018:

Quality of end of life
Since 2016, WCM has helped 39 people in the Mark Bushey program for a total dollar value of $34,836.

Started in summer 2016, the Mark Bushey Compassion Program at WCM was created to honor Mark and his tenacious battle with ALS by providing quality cannabis therapies at no cost to 16 patients who meet the Medicare definition of hospice care. A significant part of our mission is to advance understanding and acceptance of this therapy and those who choose to use it.
