We grow in living soil, rich in organic matter and beneficial microbes, and with clean water – the way nature intended.

In addition to our premium flower strains, concentrates, topicals, tinctures, edibles, and extracts, we will be offering a carefully curated collection of products from like-minded growers.

Nature knows how to grow.

The secret lies in local, living soil and the passion and patience to nurture plants to their potential without additives, fillers, or toxins. From the design of our greenhouse to the way we prepare our soil to the choices we make in our product packaging, we strive to always do right by Mother Nature.

How We Grow

Our proprietary blend of essential nutrients and helpful bacteria yields the “sweetest soil” that keeps plants strong from the roots up.

For the safety and well-being of our customers, we never use any harmful pesticides or fungicides, nor waxy fillers or bottled flavor additives.

Certified Clean Cannabis

For the past several years, Sweet Dirt has proudly grown Certified Clean Cannabis, as designated by the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA), the oldest and largest state organic organization in the United States. We are one of only a handful of cannabis growers to achieve this certification. We are extremely proud of our organic growing practices.

Our Greenhouse

We are in the process of building a state-of-the-art 32,800 sq ft greenhouse (the largest cannabis greenhouse in Maine) at our facility in Eliot, Maine. Our multi-bay greenhouse will feature farm-style and HVAC bays. The greenhouse will be highly automated to enable a stable and ideal growing environment. It will harness year-round natural sunlight in order to utilize all the benefits that come from a full light-spectrum, like higher terpene percentages and more diverse cannabinoids.

Every single plant is monitored and cared for by hand throughout the entirety of its lifecycle by a team of devoted and experienced cultivators. Every cultivation team member is passionate about growing cannabis and helps guide our plants to their full potential of flavor, aroma, and effect.

Our Strains

We work tirelessly to ensure the best cannabis experience for our customers. Over the years, we have developed a unique strain portfolio that includes a wide array of terpene profiles and unforgettable flavors. We carefully select plants based on their aroma, flavor, and effect on the body and mind. Our high terpene levels mean our flower delivers a rich, layered sensory experience that goes beyond just potency.

Our genetic library includes strains we selected from seed – many of them heirloom and landrace strains not easily found in Maine or anywhere in the Northeast. Each strain grows differently and in its own time, resulting in a truly individual combination of smells of herbs, fruits, and botanicals and effects.

Hand Trimmed

With an emphasis on trichome preservation and essential oils, our flower is cured on the stalk and always hand-trimmed to ensure the most high-quality products.

We test all of our cannabis for purity and potency so that we can give you the highest-quality and most consistent experience.
