At roughly half the size of a Walmart, this ‘cannabis entertainment complex’ is the largest dispensary in the world. Watch for the 15-foot-tall LED lotus flowers on the dispensary’s roof, which stand out even among Vegas’ bright lights. As you enter, spend a few minutes stepping on the interactive floor behind check-in, or follow mechanical butterflies through the hallways, past the site’s restaurant, coffee shop and vendors. The main retail space features colorful orbs floating overhead and 85 budtenders. But that’s not all. You can watch gummies, chocolates and other treats being made through a glass window looking into Planet 13’s kitchen. Soon you’ll be able to tour Cannabition, an interactive cannabis museum.
The entertainment capital of the world celebrated its first recreational marijuana sale on July 1, 2017, in true Vegas fashion: with fireworks. Since then, the number of dispensaries in Vegas has exploded to more than 50, with the highest concentration on or near The Strip.
As is usually the case in Vegas, bigger-is-better tends to dominate the dispensary scene. Indeed, the city boasts the largest dispensary in the world, Planet 13. Not to be left behind, other dispensaries wow with interactive displays, cannabis kitchens and spa-like environs.
To purchase cannabis in Las Vegas you must be at least 21 years old, have identification such as a valid driver’s license or government-issued card, and bring cash since most banks won’t work with dispensaries. You’ll also want to be careful where you light up. Smoking or using in public – including casinos and hotel rooms – carries a fine of up to $600.
