Recreational marijuana has been legal in Nevada for a year. If you’ve been putting off your first trip to a dispensary, now is a good time. Why? The dispensaries are firmly established, the range of products is abundant and diverse, and the industry’s customer-service protocol has evolved from Jeff Spicoli to Jeeves. Whether you want to dip in a toe or go for the full high dive, here’s our guide to valley cannabis culture. (And remember, be 21 or older!)
Which Dispensary Is Right for Me?
There are more than 60 dispensaries across Clark County, each offering its own distinct customer experience. Which is right for you? It depends on who you are and what you’re looking for.
Arts District Millennial: New Amsterdam Naturals
Heading Downtown to take in a movie or some theater, check out the galleries or just poke around the vintage shops and cocktail bars? Perhaps a stop at New Amsterdam Naturals is in order. Located in a low building with ’70s-style angled wood paneling and photo murals of the moon landing, it’s got a laid-back young staff and a ska/reggae soundtrack. A decent selection of flower, edibles and concentrates are available at reasonable prices, which get even better with locals’ and First Friday specials.
