Our Team

Meet the MEDCo Team

Our leadership, budtenders, and kitchen staff bring passion and expertise to every aspect of the MEDCo experience.

    CEO

    Alex McMahan

    Alex’s primary purpose is building a cannabis company that preserves the culture of the industry and the soul of the plant. He is a believer in the trifecta of maintaining a strong high: a rotation of flower, edibles, and concentrates. A lifelong career in side-by-side hospitality and cannabis converged for Alex into a cannabis company founded on hospitality. He attributes this to universal alignment and the power of visualization combined with hard work.

Tens of thousands of gallons of MEDCo Lemon-Aid now flow annually out of our downtown Lewiston edibles production kitchen, alongside the rest of the MEDCo edibles line.

He decided he’d rather help people feel better for a living rather than break his body for a company that didn’t truly care about him.

Budtender - Gardiner Location

Roland

Roland’s favorite product is a toss up between our in-house strain Titty Sprinkles and any of our hash rosins. When he’s off the clock, he loves to read, tend to his plants, and be in nature. It has long since been his dream to work in the cannabis industry.

Bud Processor - Downtown Lewiston Location
