If you’re on the hunt for cannabis in Las Vegas you’ll find that prices have fallen slightly since this summer. You can currently pick up a gram for an average of about $17, or about $1 less than you would have paid last quarter.
But you’ll find several dispensaries in the area offering a gram for less.
In fact, you can pick up a gram for as little as $16.54.
There are also some great deals on larger quantities. Remember, savvy shoppers can almost always save by shopping around.
For instance, the average for an ounce of marijuana in Las Vegas is $337.08. Yet some shops are offering an ounce for half of that average.
Prices are also lower than they were at this time last year.
For most of 2020, marijuana prices in Nevada were on the rise. As marijuana went legal recreationally in the state, the tax on wholesale cannabis jumped up drastically, from 2% to 15%. Consumers started buying up inventory, decreasing supply, and causing dispensaries to up their prices.
As we’ve seen with other states that have gone recreational — Colorado, Washington, and Oregon — prices start to fall after the market evens out.
That’s mostly been the case with Vegas. In 2018, cannabis prices in Sin City dropped from a high of $347 per ounce down to $297. It hit a low of $249 per ounce in March 2019. Then in April 2020, the average price rose up to $258 and now has increased to $337, in the new year.
If you’re looking to save some cash, it’s important to shop around for quality cannabis at a decent price.

Choose your dispensary wisely
Regular shoppers at dispensaries already know that the quality of cannabis products differ from dispensary to dispensary.
Just keep in mind when shopping that it’s important to shop at a dispensary that offers lab-tested products and buys from reputable growers. You don’t want to end up using a product that hasn’t been tested for mites or contains all kinds of chemicals.
Our guide to buying cannabis can help you along the way.
If you want to try out a bunch of different dispensaries and products without spending all of your cash, we suggest looking for dispensaries offering daily, weekly and monthly deals on certain quantities and strains.
Also, becoming a member at your favorite dispensary can save you some major cash on your favorite strains (somewhere around 10 percent).
Remember, dispensaries quickly run out of the most popular strains. Give your local dispensary a call, or email, to see if they have a particular strain in stock before you make the trip.
