Located at 4240 W. Flamingo across from the Palms Casino Resort, the Apothecary Shoppe has started seeing patients. The newly opened dispensary puts an emphasis on patient experience and wellness by employing wellness concierges who match patients’ needs to flowers, topicals, concentrates, and edibles that best suit a particular taste or need.

“The Apothecary Shoppe is more than a medical marijuana dispensary,” said Dr. Nick Spirtos, one of the dispensary’s owners. “We believe in a higher purpose, one devoted to the well-being of our patients and to the creation of a positive cannabis culture in Nevada.”

To that end, the Apothecary Shoppe has a staff doctor accessible to patients. “We believe having a licensed physician on-site is just one of the attributes that separates the Apothecary Shoppe from other dispensaries,” said Dr. Geoffrey Hsieh who, with Dr. Spirtos, will be enrolling patients in the first of several clinical trials. “Not only will we be able to provide valuable counsel to patients, but also oversee the critical research necessary to accurately address the full benefit of cannabis-based therapies.”

The Apothecary Shoppe is open daily from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.

EVERGREEN ORGANIX Opens Cannabis Cultivation Facility

Evergreen Organix Cultivation (EGO) opened a 33,000-square-foot, 100 percent hydroponic facility in Clark County in November. “Evergreen Organix has built Nevada’s first state-of-the-art zero air exchange facility in order to bring the cleanest medicinal cannabis products to market,” said Jillian Nelson, Operations Manager of Evergreen Organix. “A zero air exchange facility will allow us to control the environment by dialing in the most optimal grow conditions and eliminate the need for toxic pesticides and, in turn, operate like a laboratory with a clean room controlled environment.”

Evergreen Organix will have the capacity to produce in excess of 29 cannabis strains including those with high CBD and CBN. EGO’s strain library includes proprietary breeds like Harlequin as well as early cannabis strains from Brothers Grim.

Evergreen’s cultivation facility also has a 3,400-square-foot production and a team of chefs who will be making a variety of edible products that are sugar-free, non-GMO, gluten-free, and vegan.
