Cannabis Consumption in Las Vegas

Cannabis consumption in Las Vegas has grown in popularity since laws were changed to make cannabis legal in Nevada in 2017. The internationally-known gambling destination of Las Vegas is today home to dozens of dispensaries and cannabis-related businesses as a vibrant cannabis culture is here to stay.

When you visit Las Vegas you can find a wide variety of cannabis products available, ranging from flower, edibles, tinctures, concentrates, and topicals. Just do not smoke cannabis out in public when you visit here. Doing so is not legal. Also do not smoke cannabis in a casino resort room because that will get you into trouble.

Does it seem like Las Vegas invites people here with the promise of available cannabis and then fails to deliver? The simple answer is YES. Las Vegas became known for a number of cannabis-focused local events which would indicate an increase acceptance. But during all of 2020 through the end of 2022 the coronavirus pandemic impeded what had been thought would be a very rapid expansion of celebrating cannabis culture locally.

Will there be an expansion of cannabis culture in Las Vegas? Perhaps one clue will be found in the 2023 opening of The Lexi which will be the first of its kind—a cannabis-oriented hotel. The property located on Sahara Avenue just west of the I-15 freeway and the Las Vegas Strip will feature a European-style pool with the label of “topless optional,” an uncommon feature even in Las Vegas. The question remains whether Sin City will be ready to handle mixing nudity with weed.

Overall, it is completely accurate to report that most people will conclude that Las Vegas is hampered by often confusing laws which govern cannabis consumption even though cannabis was legalized in this state back in 2017. The confusion seems to have grown accidentally rather than being a deliberate choice of lawmakers.

A strong attempt to manage the statewide laws governing cannabis was the creation of the Nevada Cannabis Compliance Board (CCB) which is the legal entity that approves licensing and operation of cannabis consumption lounges not just in Las Vegas, but throughout all of Nevada. An official listing of the state-approved license holders is posted online.

Cannabis consumption became available first in Las Vegas at NuWu which is owned and operated by indigenous peoples, the Las Vegas Paiute Tribe. The venue is two blocks north of the Fremont Street Experience in Downtown Las Vegas but walking there is not recommended for any visitors.

In contrast, visitors on the Las Vegas Strip can walk to Planet 13 the largest cannabis dispensary in the world. This venue promises to become the most desirable adjacent experience for Las Vegas Strip visitors seeking to consume cannabis during their stay.

Dr. Woody Cannabis Coaching: Cannabis for Grownups

If you consider yourself a grownup and you live where cannabis has been legalized, this section of this website is especially intended tp benefit you. The emphasis here in this section of this website is on the use of cannabis for health benefits and not the use of cannabis for getting high or stoned.

I’m known in Las Vegas for Dr. Woody’s Cannabis Coaching (see my cannabis coaching page on Facebook).

Over the span of a few years I became respected in Las Vegas as someone who coaches others as to the best uses of cannabis. My focus has always been how you can use cannabis as medicine.

I happen to not be interested at all in the recreational use of cannabis to get high and alter your mood. You don’t need coaching for that usage of cannabis at all. Just walk into any retail location that legally sells cannabis if you want to get high. It’s so easy to buy that kind of cannabis.

If you’re a grownup who does not want to consider cannabis for pleasure or getting high, you may need help, coaching, training and so on to guide you in best practices.

Get this honest and down-to-earth book about the benefits for grownups (people age 50 and older) who choose to use the medicine plant, cannabis absolutely free of charge. No obligation. The author is of the Baby Boom generation–born in the middle of the 20th century–with direct, personal experience using cannabis products.

Every body of every human is slightly different. But from my personal experience, I recommend a specific cannabis product that anyone in the U.S. can legally purchase online from Amazon and then use the product for medicinal outcomes. You don’t need to walk into a cannabis dispensary. You just order this product online and it will be delivered to you.

These hemp gummies are not habit-forming. You WILL NOT get high from these gummies. I found these gummies help me get better sleep, ease my body’s muscular pains, and generally make me feel less stressed out and therefore much better in my daily life.

You swallow this edible product. You won’t end up smelling like a teenage pothead. There is no smoke and no scent at all because hemp gummies go in your mouth and then down your throat to your stomach. Nobody will even know you are using hemp gummies for medical outcomes.

Hemp is just a small word with a big ancient history. The preferred botanical term is cannabis. The scientific fact (not just one writer’s opinion) is that these hemp gummies cannot get you high because they contain no THC—the abbreviation for Tetrahydocannabinol. Amazon could not sell hemp gummies online for delivery to you unless hemp gummies were legal. And these hemp gummies are most definitely 100% legal in the U.S. today.

That Voice in Your Mind

Hello, my name is Woody Goulart and I am an advocate of listening to the voice that you hear in your mind. This voice has no sound anyone can hear. This voice cannot be observed or measured by a medical doctor or a scientist directly. This voice is not even physical.

So What Exactly is Mind Voice?

You are not imagining things. That voice is really there.

I can explain this concept of mind voice easily. Here is my own personal and professional perspective, advice, and guidance on this crucial mental health aspect presented in a short, simple, easy-to-understand short YouTube video.

You can benefit from reading my down-to-earth book available electronically for downloading instantly for $19.99 from Amazon. The title is Mind Voice: All You Need to Start Using Your Mental Powers. This one book has a great deal of in-depth guidance from me to improve your life.

Mind Voice: Solid Proof

I published Mind Voice: All You Need to Start Using Your Mental Powers originally in 2018 and then updated it in 2022 following what happened on January 6, 2021 in Washington, DC. What happened was the seat of our government’s legislative sector was angrily and violently breached by devotees of Donald J. Trump. In his final days as the 45th president (before Inauguration Day took place) Trump spoke out (in a podium speech outside the White House) to persuade his followers to go to Capitol Hill and do what they needed to do to stop the normal legislative processes going on there. This is a stunning example of an authoritarian manipulating how groups of people think and behave.

The solid proof that something incorrect is happening in your life and in your mind easily can be found in admitting the ongoing anger that you feel. People who know how to use their minds well and for healthy outcomes do not invest in stoking the mental energy that gets them stuck in enduring and ongoing anger. There is nothing “wrong” with anger, of course. But if you are angry every day, that should be a wake up call to you that you need to address what’s going on between your ears. Your mind voice is yours to put to positive use if you wish.

You can choose to rely upon your mind voice to hear and believe what you have chosen deliberately for yourself. What you put there into your mind for yourself can and will result in you acting towards pro-social and positive outcomes.

You do not have to hold in your mind the energy to produce anger or generate violence or result in death to anyone out in the physical world including yourself.

The reason I wrote this book was to share with you what I discovered about built-in mental powers inside all of us that enable us to upgrade our lives to live without fear while having good mental health. If you prefer to live in fear, hate, anger, and enjoy violence, you own that, too. You deserve better than that, but you have a way out of your problems if you just pay attention to what I have written in this book.

What I do professionally is provide life and business guidance, coaching, mentoring, and training for people to bring out what they’ve got inside and guide them in how to use that to get what they want in their life.

My book is for everyone who wants to learn how to manage their own mind and live without fear and with good mental health. I call it mind voice but there are other names such as the mental equivalent which comes to us from nearly 80 years ago. Ancient wisdom about this built-in mental power we all have is ours from centuries ago. Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius wrote, “You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.”
