Verano Holdings began their journey into the cannabis world back in 2016 when they opened their first Zen Leaf dispensary right here in Las Vegas. Today, they grow more than 150 strains in 13 state-of-the-art cultivation and production facilities throughout the nation. With over 100 dispensaries and more than 4,000 employees, Verano has really made a strong impact within the cannabis industry.
In southern Nevada, Verano has three Zen Leaf dispensary locations as well as a cultivation and production facility. In northern Nevada, there are two Zen Leaf dispensary locations along with a cultivation facility stemming from their recent acquisition of Sierra Well.
Their flagship store opened on Post Road six years ago as the only dispensary in the state functioning “deli style” allowing budtenders to weigh out and package bulk cannabis in front of customers. The Post Road location caters to locals with a good reach as the longest opened dispensary in that particular area. This location is both a medical and recreational dispensary, catering to medical patients and offering hard to find, medical-only products. After all, if not for medical, there would be no recreational!
The second, and much anticipated Zen Leaf store opened in North Las Vegas in 2021 and sits on the very busy Craig Road. As the largest store in southern Nevada, this is a go-to for patrons living in North Las Vegas. This location is always busy and the employees are welcoming, informative and eager to help customers find exactly what they are looking for.
Last year, Zen Leaf opened their third location on Flamingo Road, not far from the Las Vegas Strip. The Flamingo Road location also operates “deli style” which is a nice surprise for visiting tourists. This location features a drive-thru, which allows patrons to place orders right at the window when they drive up instead of calling ahead. This unique feature works well here as the building itself was formerly a bank with drive-up teller windows. The transition was easy and the ease of convenience for Zen Leaf customers is a great incentive.
I had the pleasure of speaking with Annalisa Vidal, Zen Leaf’s Senior Dispensary Manager, to learn more about Zen Leaf as a whole and her experience working there. Annalisa expressed the immense amount of love that she has for Verano and for the brand: “I love what Verano stands for and I love the team of people that I get to work with. It’s a beautiful thing when you get to work with people who care so much about what they do and why they do it. I am very passionate about the industry and helping people.”
Annalisa also let me in on a few of her favorite products. Annalisa loves Verano vapes. She says, “I am typically a flower girl, but the Verano vapes taste just like our Verano flower. They are true to each strain and they induce a nice flower high.” Her second favorite product is Verano flower. According to Annalisa, “Our flower looks, smells and feels just like it should. It’s extremely clean and smells and tastes amazing.”
When the first Zen Leaf store opened, the idea, according to the company “was to create a dispensary environment that could satisfy the myriad needs of its patrons while fostering the longstanding cannabis community through reliability, accessibility and authenticity. It was, and to this day remains, a priority that Zen Leaf dispensaries be a place of both comfort and care.” Zen Leaf has achieved exactly what they set out to. Walk in to any Zen Leaf store in Nevada and you will be greeted warmly and assisted with a smile.
