There are a plethora of dispensaries in most states that have legalized adult-use cannabis, and the most populated cities in these states will often have the most. At one point, there were more dispensaries/cannabis retail shops in Portland than there were Starbucks and McDonald’s combined. While that figure may have changed, you can still find a cannabis retail shop almost every 1000 feet (per compliance) in most parts of the city and for many it might be hard to discern which ones are the best. Enter Jayne: the cannabis retail shop you want to take your mother, or father, or grandmother or anyone who you want to ensure a good cannabis purchasing experience, to do their canna-shopping. This shop has beautiful aesthetic, educated and caring budtenders, and carries the highest (pun intended!!) quality of cannabis products and accessories for their customers.
Jayne not only does all the things you would want and hope for at a cannabis retail shop, but also all the other things. Most recently, they have been involved in planning and sponsoring the Lady Business events, a cross-platform educational series on cannabis, sexual health, and philanthropy.
So, how does a cannabis retail shop create an environment with great service AND a selection of products at a price that will satisfy both the budget minded and cannabis connoisseurs alike? I got to pick the brain of Briana Burke, Manager of Jayne, to find out.
Leah Maurer (LM): How long have you been with Jayne?
Briana Burke (BB): I have been with Jayne since the beginning. We opened our doors in November 2015.
LM: What sets Jayne aside from the dozens of other cannabis retail shops in Portland?
BB: With Jayne, the goal was to be more than a retail location. We aim to be a long-standing member in this community and our philanthropy and community service is the key separating factor between Jayne and other cannabis retail shops.
LM: Tell me a few things about the mission and vision of the company.
BB: Jayne’s mission is to serve the community, not just our customers. Our customers support us because we serve the community.
LM: Why did Jayne choose to co-sponsor the Lady Business series?
BB: Lady Biz encompasses several things I am passionate about…sexual health and awareness, cannabis and philanthropy. So, it was a natural fit!

Here is what you need to know before visiting your local medical dispensary:You may need a doctor’s recommendation, medical cannabis certificate, or whatever appropriate documentation is needed by your condition. Typically, you must be 18 or older to qualify for a medical consent, but exceptions may be made in some states for minors with particularly debilitating conditions. You will usually enroll with a medicinal dispensary. This is to maintain your medical cannabis recommendation or certification on file for regulatory and legal purposes. There’ll be a waiting room. This will be to control the circulation of product and patients, but a straightforward dividing wall gives patients solitude and direct one-on-one contact with a budtender to discuss medical problems. This procedure can assist budtenders and patients track effective medication in addition to have a living listing of manufacturers and products for future reference and follow up. Medicinal dispensaries usually allow you to smell and examine the buds prior to purchase. This may differ from state-to-state.
