Coming to Vegas: Nation’s ‘first’ cannabis superstore

BY Marianne Wilson

Another attraction will soon light up the Las Vegas sky—in more ways than one.

Planet 13, billed as “the country’s first cannabis entertainment complex and superstore,” will open on October 30, in Las Vegas, just off the Strip. Designed to appeal to both the general public and cannabis aficionados, the 40,000-sq.-ft. facility includes an entertainment space with interactive attractions and a 16,500-sq.-ft. cannabis dispensary with 45 to 50 registers. The company also intends to introduce event space for corporations to rent. (Nevada legalized adult-use marijuana in 2017.)

Even amid the glitz and neon of Las Vegas, Planet 13 will be hard to miss. The roof will feature 15-foot-tall lotus flowers (13 in all), lit with LEDs. Made of acrylic leaves and metal stems, the lotus flowers can be controlled by customers. The control panels will be located near an outdoor water feature.

The lobby of the building boasts sensory-activated LED flooring that creates an interactive show when walked on. Moving further into the main space, a glowing aerial orb hangs high above the dispensary floor. There’s also interactive laser graffiti where visitors can leave their mark with unique writings and drawings. An array of 3D visuals will be projected onto walls throughout the space.

“We have already generated a loyal following of Las Vegas customers at our current dispensary location and we are confident that the superstore will be a strong draw for the 55 million visitors from around the world that come to the city each year,” said Robert Groesbeck, co-CEO and board member of Planet 13, a vertically integrated cannabis company cultivation, production and dispensary operations in Las Vegas.

The company already operates a dispensary in Las Vegas that is licensed for medical sales and for recreational sales. It also holds two cultivation licenses in Nevada.
