“Moms and Grandmothers Welcome” at Elegant Dispensary Offering Organically Grown
LAS VEGAS, February 19, 2016 -- The Apothecarium, a medical cannabis company based in
San Francisco, announced it has joined with local partners to open a Las Vegas location, which
will begin serving patients on Saturday, February 20th. This will be the second location for The
Apothecarium, which has operated a widely-respected medical cannabis dispensary in San
Francisco since 2011. The establishment is known for providing patients with excellent service
in an upscale environment. The Las Vegas dispensary will be housed in a 3,000 square foot
space, featuring rotating art exhibits, located at 7885 West Sahara Avenue, near the corner of
South Buffalo Drive.
“The Apothecarium is the dispensary where you can feel comfortable sending your mom or your
grandmother,” said Ryan Hudson, co-founder and executive director of The Apothecarium.
“Physicians often send us patients who are dealing with serious medical issues such as cancer,
because we offer our members in-depth consultations from professional staffers.”
The Apothecarium will offer classes and outreach tailored to seniors, veterans, cancer survivors
and other cannabis patients. The medicine will include marijuana grown using organic,
sustainable methods and edibles made by award-winning chefs.
“I visited the Apothecarium’s northern California location last year, and it was very interesting to
see what a professional operation it is,” said Dina Titus, United States Representative for
Nevada’s District 1. “It’s agribusiness. It’s science. It’s health. The people working there had
Masters Degrees in Public Health and Chemistry. And as a result of their security
improvements, the neighborhood had improved. I’m pleased to welcome The Apothecarium to
District 1 and I look forward to working with them to serve the needs of southern Nevadans.”
Since opening in 2011 in San Francisco, The Apothecarium has served 50,000
member-patients, approximately 30 percent of whom are over the age of 55. During that time,
the dispensary has never had a single police incident and has been warmly embraced by its
neighbors. The San Francisco Board of Supervisors even declared October 1, 2015,
“Apothecarium Day” in honor of the dispensary’s service to patients and the community.
“Las Vegas offers the opportunity to experience the world’s finest institutions: the Eiffel Tower,
the New York skyline, world-class restaurants and now The Apothecarium, too,” said Foster
Boone, general manager, The Apothecarium Las Vegas. “We welcome first-time cannabis
patients, seniors, out-of-state visitors with valid physician recommendations, and working
professionals looking for top-quality medicine from friendly, knowledgeable patient consultants.”
The Apothecarium Las Vegas is co-owned by a group of Nevada-based investors and the
California-based founders of The Apothecarium.
