Essence Cannabis Dispensary Awarded New Licenses to Expand to California

WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – December 19, 2018 – Essence, Nevada’s largest marijuana dispensary and cultivation operation, has been awarded three business licenses to establish retail, delivery, and on-site consumption locations in California.

The new licenses will allow Essence to expand operations to California for the first time and offer its services to a wide consumer audience in one of the country’s largest cannabis markets.

Essence plans to add one new boutique dispensary retail location in the eclectic West Hollywood enclave by the end of 2019. The new location will serve as Essence’s California flagship and is expected to feature a retail location, cannabis delivery services, and a full-service consumption lounge where patrons will be able to smoke, vape, and consume carefully crafted cannabis cocktails and edibles in a social and stylish atmosphere. Only a handful of consumption lounges currently operate within the United States.

Today’s award announcement marks a significant period of rapid growth for Essence, which received eight new retail cannabis licenses from the state of Nevada earlier this month, bringing its total number of nationwide retail dispensary licenses to 12.

“Our growth is the direct result of our unwavering commitment to exceptional customer service and respect for the local communities that have chosen to welcome responsible cannabis businesses,” said Essence co-founder Armen Yemenidjian. “The selection criteria in California were very rigorous and the number of licenses limited. I’m very proud that we’ve been selected and excited to bring the Essence experience to consumers in Southern California.”

The Essence retail brand is renowned for superb service along with the widest selection of quality cannabis products in Las Vegas. It currently operates three high-traffic locations across the Las Vegas Valley, including the first and only dispensary on the Las Vegas Strip, and two state-of-the-art cultivation and processing facilities, Desert Grown Farms and Cannabiotix NV. The Essence Las Vegas Strip location was named Business Insider’s number one dispensary in Nevada and top-25 dispensary in the United States; a 17-time Leafly List Winner; top-10 dispensary in Nevada by High Times Magazine, and the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s “Best of Las Vegas.”

Essence, Desert Farms and Cannabiotix NV are owned by Integral Associates, LLC, which recently entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by Green Thumb Industries Inc., pending regulatory approvals. For more information, please visit: https://essencevegas.com.
