Just weeks into legal sales, cannabis retail shops in Nevada are already facing inventory shortages. On opening weekend alone, some Las Vegas dispensaries saw lines with up to a three hour wait time
With more than 40 million tourists slated to visit Las Vegas in the next year, that means excitement and big business for cannabis retail stores, but can they handle the influx?
Even if just 5% of those tourists want to visit a dispensary, the lines will be out the door and around the block. – Krista Whitley, Las Vegas cannabis activist and entrepreneur.
While history shows demand will likely subside as the novelty wears off, most canna-tourists will ask questions. They want to be informed, but they also don’t want to wait in long lines.
Enter the Vegas Weekend Box a carefully curated selection of the top 10 cannabis products in Nevada.
The beautifully designed box is aesthetically Instagram-worthy offering up an intro or reintroduction to cannabis culture to ensure visitors avoid the pitfalls of many cannabis beginners: Overindulgence.
The Vegas Weekend Box, which sold 10,000 boxes in presale, is just the latest in a series of successful cannabis ventures launched by Whitley.
In fact, her digital media agency, Social Media Unicorn, has quickly become a powerhouse, marketing agency behind some of the biggest names in cannabis including Caviar Gold and Nevada’s own Tahoe Hydroponics.
The revenue from the retail marijuana industry in Las Vegas will provide funding benefiting the public education system. In the first four days of adult use sales, the Nevada cannabis market earned $500,000 in tax revenue the state’s Dispensary Association reported. Those numbers put the state on track to pull in sales of $30 million by the next six months.
Nevada is trailing the nation in education, and as a mother of two girls who are in school, this is a cause I care deeply about. – Whitley
In fact, a recent report found Las Vegas schools ranked 50th in the nation.
Our children deserve better and cannabis consumers deserve to enjoy the normalization of consumption that all of us advocates have lobbied in favor of.
The Vegas Weekend Box, which launches at select dispensaries July 14, will be updated each month to include the latest premium cannabis products.
Relax is the new way to enjoy the benefits of CBD. This refreshing drink by Rawligion contains 100% organic hemp milk with CBD oil.
It is said that this product effectively reduces stress, soothes pain, relieves anxiety, and acts as a sleep aid.
Despite the CBD oil, this product also includes dates, coconut oil, vanilla, cashews, hemp seeds, and water.
Relax has been produced on the initiative of Michael Isted, a psychotherapist and development consultant for Rawligion, who believed that people need to have a drink which will offer all the medicinal properties of CBD. Yet, it provides all the benefits of hemp, but the CBD has no psychoactive properties, so it won’t get you high.
CBD oil will react with the endogenous cannabinoid system of the body, which is in charge of the homeostasis of the body, which positively affects sleep, pain, mood, hormones, and the immune response.
Nowadays, CBD is gradually gaining a new reputation as a medicine, not just as a cannabis extract. It is expected to be recognized as a medicine after the new legislation is passed on November 1st.
The flavor of Relax reminds of almond milk and has a mild cannabis aftertaste. However, when it comes to its relaxing properties, the founder of Rawligion, John Taba, claims that customers report that Relax makes them calm and tranquil.
He also noted that customers need to be careful in order to enjoy the full benefits of this drink:
“It’s subtle, but so far all who have consumed the drink mindfully have felt the desired effect. I don’t mean to use the word mindfully in a hipster way, just more a case of someone actually paying attention to how they feel before hand, during drinking and afterwards instead of having it as a drink to wash down a meal with!”
