Pakalolo Supply holds the distinction as the first company licensed by the state of Alaska for marijuana cultivation. Pakalolo is owned by the Hollister family and operates a 20,000 square foot cultivation and retail location in Fairbanks, as well as a dispensary in Anchorage.
Pakalolo is the Hawaiian word for cannabis. The Hollister’s have lifelong ties to the island and both their dispensaries are Hawaiian themed.
The company made headlines in Alaska on October 28, 2016 when they made the first legal marijuana sale. The event was even more special because co-owner Tyler Hollister made the sale to his friend and cancer survivor Mike Pokrivnak.
