Budz Emporium Establishes Maine’s First Recreational Best Price Guarantee.

Featured

Yesterday, Ry Russell, Owner / Operator of Budz Emporium took to social media to share the following:

“We made a commitment to our community to provide the very best Budz for the very best value and we continue to honor that! We are now introducing our Best Budz/Best Value plan. Effective Immediately; should you find the EXACT same product carried at Budz Emporium Recreational Dispensary Medway, Maine at another Maine Adult-Use / Recreational retailer we will match it, period.

Our menu has been completely updated and much research was conducted to ensure that we offer the absolute best value there is.

We love serving this incredible community and we are all growing together!

Have an incredible 4th of July and we will see you soon! We are open our normal hours, everyday 10-7.

Sincerely, Ry”

Budz Emporium was the first Adult-Use store North of Bangor, Maine. A small family operated business in the Katahdin region. Now, they look to set the tone again. Ry stated that he felt this move although a bit bold also added a layer of accountability for the industry, in whole.

Ultimately this move could be seen as slightly risky with already razor thin margins and taxes that can exceed almost 40%, especially considering there are no deductions or protections for cannabis businesses. However, I see it as an important step for ensuring the best value for the community. Not just here in Katahdin, but across the State. If someone can afford to offer a product we carry for less than myself, then I best honor it. It is not the customers fault that I am not big enough to order large quantities or maybe there was something I missed when I was selecting product. Either way, I feel like it is important to guarantee to my customers that they will always receive the best value. For those that have followed me since my days at the Saco Drive-in I think its pretty clear that value and community are two of my most fundamental values.

Ry Russell

We asked Ry, if there was any fine print on the offer and he said, “No”, and recognizes it could be abused. He says that if he operates with integrity then he believes most of the public will as well. It is pretty easy to verify things like competing offers with todays technology. As long as it is a publicly offered price, Ry is committed to being that one stop shop for complete cannabis value.

Budz Emporium is now open 7 days a week from 10a-7pm. Offering 40+ strains and a great collection of vape products, concentrates, beverages, edibles and more! Budz Emporium was also the first store to offer the $99 ounce in partnership with Nova Farms, limited quantities available so visit soon or put yours on reserve by the calling 2077231634.

Host of WeedBudz Radio to open Budz Emporium Adult-Use Cannabis Store in Medway, Maine.

Recreational Cannabis Store opening in Medway, Maine.

Host of WeedBudz Radio, Ry Russell and members of his team and family have worked incredibly hard to open the very first Adult-Use Cannabis store in the Katahdin Region of Northern Maine. This is a recreational marijuana store meaning that any individual over the age of 21 is permitted with valid form of identification. There is no medical card required to shop at an adult-use store. The team states that they are eager to expand their offerings and work with a large number of Maine Craft Cultivators and Processors in order to deliver the very best products available. Stores like this take a lot of pride in the testing that is required of each and every product that takes up shelf space, ensuring only the best quality products are served to their community. The store is located at 1995 Medway Rd, Medway, Maine; immediately off of I95 for quick and easy access to and from the highway. This store is NOW open 7 Days a Week from 10am to 7pm. Visit their website https://budzemporium.com/ for specials and menus and information. You can reach the BUDZ by calling or texting 207-723-1634 with any questions or at BudzEmporium@gmail.com.
