NuWu Cannabis Marketplace opened the first cannabis consumption lounge in Nevada on October 5 – a historical opening.
Giving the go-ahead for public consumption lounges in the City of Las Vegas has been delayed, but there are exceptions. Nuwu is settled on sovereign land held by the Las Vegas Paiute Tribe. Due to this, it is self-regulated through the Las Vegas Paiute Cannabis Authority and is not obligated to the same limitations as the rest of the state.
According to Benny Tso, former chairman of the Las Vegas Paiute Tribe and current tribal council member, “It’s a safe and secure environment. Experts administer the dab hit and bong rip; they know what the product is, what it does and how to let consumers consume safely. We’re looking at the safety and well-being of our customers, tribal members, and our employees.”
The Nuwu Tasting Room menu consists of pre-rolls, bowls, pipes, concentrates, and edibles. Pre-rolls are $20; bowls are $10-$12; pipes are $22-$25; concentrates are $12-$14; and edibles are $8-$10. The new Cannabis Beer ($8) is a lager with Pilsner malt.
NuWu Cannabis Marketplace spans nearly 16,000 square feet and is the largest marijuana dispensary worldwide. They are located at 1235 Paiute Drive off N. Main St. and they have a 24-hour drive-thru in case you do not want to leave your car.
