Today, Kittery takes a historic step into the age of recreational cannabis retail. The outlet village, a well known destination for a variety of retail shops and has a new attraction: Theory Wellness. The Kittery recreational dispensary will be the first of its kind in the shopping center and for the Town.

During the first week of sales, the company will donate 10% of its net profits to the non-profit Footprints Food Pantry.

The Theory organization has long been a supporter of nonprofits where they operate their dispensaries in Massachusetts and Maine. When opening their Bangor Dispensary, Theory partnered with the Bangor Farmer’s Market through a donation of sales from the opening weekend. In Massachusetts, they donated a mobile food pantry to a soup kitchen in Chicopee, where they also have a medical & recreational dispensary. In Great Barrington, for the past few years, they’ve made annual contributions to Supplemental Nutrition
