Flower One has applied for multiple Nevada based dispensary licenses as an effective way to better understand the cannabis consumers’ preferences

The building is conveniently located within close proximity to the major retail corridor in North Las Vegas, the Cannery Hotel & Casino, the Company’s 455,000 square foot flagship cultivation and production facility, which is the largest in Nevada, and NLV Organic Inc.’s fully operational 25,000 square foot cultivation and production facility.
The Company has submitted applications for multiple Recreational Marijuana Establishment Licenses within the State of Nevada; an opportunity only available to existing operational cannabis license holders. The Nevada’s Department of Taxation anticipates awarding dispensary licenses to successful applicants in December 2018.
