Shop Review: Positive Energy

There's a little bit of something from every grower I could think of, with as many as 10 options from a single company.

This month we wanted to take our readers across the Bay Bridge and give them a new stop for their beach-trip checklist. Positive Energy is a 100% women-owned dispensary right on Route 50 – making this not only somewhere you can feel good about spending your money, but an incredibly time-efficient stop. How many times have you been on the way to Ocean City and thought, “Oh shit, we left the most important thing: our Cannabis.” Fear not, as the wide range of products at this store has you covered with everything from therapeutic to lifestyle-enhancing options.

Setting and Vibe

The design of this store can best be described as modern with a nature-forward touch intended to transcend the current stigma surrounding Cannabis. Owner Lyndsey Odachowski recalls people often saying, “I can’t believe this is a dispensary.” They are definitely not wrong – this impressive yet comfortable store has a unique vibe that makes both patients and adult-use customers feel included. There is also a patient-only drive-thru that is accessible from Route 50, making this easier than ever for patients to stop and grab their meds in an even speedier fashion. When entering the store, reception asks if you want to order either with a budtender or on a tablet. Both options are solid, adding a level of versatility to this dispensary that everyone can appreciate.


You could get lost in this long flower menu, but the fact that the budtenders here have so much knowledge of the products makes the options approachable. Having this kind of variety is an amazing aspect that Lyndsey and her team are proud of. It goes to show how far the Maryland market has come since its inception, and this dispensary stays ahead of the curve procuring all the options a customer could want or need. There was a little bit of something from every grower I could think of, with as many as 10 options from a single company.


Patients keep flocking back to this store for their tasty concentrates time and time again. To name just a few, they had Berry Pie and Blanco live resin sugars from Cookies during the time of our visit. I was also really excited and impressed to see White Durban live resin ‘Terp Jam’ on the menu from Rythm, whose concentrates we all know and love. Lastly, there was plenty of shatter, badder, cured resin, and even terp sauce droppers.


Taking some edibles and sitting on the beach is truly something you need to experience if you’ve never done it. But whether you’re sitting on the beach or need a restful night’s sleep after a long day, they have an edible to meet any occasion with tons of different options including drink mixes, gummies, chocolates, baked goods and capsules, just to name a few. I felt like I was in the Candy Kitchen before I even went onto Coastal Highway.

Product Review

Apples & Bananas .5g Pre Rolls from Gold Dust
33.21% Total Cannabinoid Content and 4.16% Terpenes

Gold Dust is an in-house product exclusively for Positive Energy that makes use of whole flower ground right in the dispensary. This Gold Dust pack of .5 gram joints is Apples & Bananas from Curio Wellness. There is no mistaking its sugary-sweet, fruit-forward aromas that are further highlighted by a creamy gas undertone. At 4.16% terpenes and over 2% myrcene alone, this pre-roll couldn’t pair better with a spring evening as the days get warmer – especially on the salty coast.
