Q: Do I need to have a medical marijuana card or be a cannabis patient to shop at Essence?
A: In Nevada and California, the recreational use of marijuana is legal, so you do not need to have a medical marijuana card or have a medical condition to purchase cannabis from our existing Nevada or upcoming California locations. However, we do also serve medical marijuana customers and we are authorized to dispense medical marijuana.

Q: Do you sell medical cannabis or recreational cannabis?
A: We carry a wide variety of cannabis products that can be used for medical or recreational purposes. If you are looking to try cannabis for medical reasons, we always recommend consulting your primary care physician before trying any new products. If your doctor has advised you to try a particular type of cannabis product, let one of our guest consultants know your patient care guidelines and they can assist you.

Q: Can anyone buy marijuana at Essence?
A: Currently, Essence has locations in Nevada and locations planned to be opened in California. To shop at a marijuana dispensary in these states, you do not have to be a California or Nevada resident. However, you do need to be 21 years of age or older and have a valid government-issued ID.

Q: What do I need to bring to purchase marijuana at Essence?
A: You will need to bring a valid government-issued photo ID that shows you are 21 years of age or older.

Q: Do you ship cannabis in the mail?
A: While we deliver marijuana and marijuana products to some locations, we’re sorry to say that we do not mail cannabis. Our delivery options are local only.

Q: Do you offer perks for medical marijuana patients?
A: Yes! For medical marijuana patients, we have dedicated lines for check-in and check-out. Additionally, we offer exclusive promotions to medical dispensary patients via text message and offer some exclusive membership discounts for certain medical patients.
