We are not
like other dispensaries

Life is short, so we keep it real and uplifted. By growing quality marijuana, we’re growing quality lifestyles, and we have fun doing it.

How it all started

Picture of Jen - the founder of Friend Jen & Co

Louisa Antonia Gallinari Lund, Jen’s mother, planted a seed of hope toward growth in both Jen’s life and career during a time of change. Lou Ann made note of the evolving cannabis industry as one which complimented Jen’s background of nursing and gardening. She highlighted that cannabis would eventually become a resource for the health and happiness of individuals who suffered from chronic illness. Lou Ann, unfortunately was unable to experience the benefits of cannabis during her battles with cancer. After she passed, however, Jen was able to pursue cannabis with her green thumb and innate ability to care for others.

Why it's important

Jen fell in love with the process of growing. It was fun. It was medicinal. It was beneficial to her and her patients, and reflected a connection to family and care. Sequentially, cannabis became something that was essential to Jen during her own breast cancer diagnosis as a means to subside side effects of cancer treatments.

From a home grow to warehouse space, extensively learning and understanding regulations, and traveling to marijuana friendly regions like Spain, Holland, and the U.S- the awareness of a potential recreational market in Maine kept increasing. What started as friends and family collaborating toward creating a new lifestyle has unfolded into the communities of Maine with a multitude of social, economic, and medicinal benefits.
