a) In Nevada, you can use an out-of-state medical card as long as also present a valid government issued ID or U.S. passport.
b) In Arizona, the medical marijuana laws only allow us to accept Arizona medical cards.
Although the law passed for recreational marijuana passed in the 2016 election, the “early start” program for “rec” is estimated to begin in July 2017, when temporary laws regarding recreational marijuana will be put into place.
We have nothing to announce at this time.
In Nevada and Arizona, smoking or using any form or cannabis in public is unlawful, and is restricted to use only in a private residence. This complicates things for tourists, although there is currently a bill request from Nevada state Sen. Tick Segerblom for local governments to allow public cannabis usage destinations.
That is up to you and how frequently you need to medicate. However, there are two reasons why Reef suggests renewing your medical card:
a) Recreational sales won’t begin until late 2017 or early 2018: Nevada voters decided to legalize recreational marijuana, but the state still has to build the regulatory infrastructure to start issuing licenses for recreational sales. If your medical card expires soon, you may be unable to purchase from a dispensary for months until the recreational legal framework goes into effect.
b) Recreational sales will be more expensive due to higher state taxes: Even when recreational sales do begin, the state will be taking a 15% tax on wholesale sales of marijuana. While that doesn’t equate to a direct tax at the register, it will result in higher prices all the way down the line, so the tax will probably be baked into the final purchase price for recreational sales. No one knows yet exactly what the final rules will look like (see above), but depending on how much cannabis you purchase, you may still save money overall by paying for your renewal than by switching to recreational purchases.
Please refer to our Nevada Medical Marijuana Card or Out-of-State / International Medical Marijuana Card pages to see if you qualify for a card and instructions on how to proceed.
In Nevada and Arizona, you must be 18 to become a patient. However, persons under the age of 18 can become patients in both states with the consent of a parent or guardian caregiver through a minor release form.
When Nevada’s recreational laws go into effect, one must be 21 years of age or older to purchase cannabis products for non-medical use.
Under current medical laws, Nevada patients are allowed to:
a) Purchase up to 2.5 ounces of varying usable cannabis products every 14 days
b) Grow up to 6 cannabis plants in your home, as long as it is at least 25 miles away from a dispensary
c) Transport cannabis, as long as it is in a sealed container away from the driver and any minor passengers. It is unlawful to travel outside of state lines in possession.
Under current medical laws, Arizona patients are allowed to:
a) Purchase up to 2.5 ounces of varying usable cannabis products every 14 days
b) Grow up to 12 cannabis plants in your home, as long as it is at least 25 miles away from a dispensary
c) Transport up to 2.5 ounces of cannabis. It is unlawful to travel outside of state lines in possession.
It is unlawful to drive under the influence of any form of cannabis in both Nevada and Arizona.

a) Indica cannabis strains like Sherbert and Star Dawg provide a relaxing feeling and are often used by patients for: insomnia, body pain, muscle relaxation, spasms, seizures, headaches, stress relief, anxiety, and more.
b) Sativa cannabis strains like Purple Urkle and Afrodite provide a more stimulating, uplifting and energetic feeling, often inspiring creative thinking, deeper focus, and a general sense of well-being. Sativas are also used to fight depression.
c) Hybrid cannabis strains are exactly what they sound like: plants that are a balance of indicas and sativas.
After talking with your doctor, speak to one of Reef’s patient specialists about helping find the right strain for you.

Most of the Tryke-branded products sold at our Las Vegas Strip location are grown in-house, on-site at our 165,000 sq ft facility, which also supplies our North Las Vegas and Reno locations. The same goes for our Central Phoenix location, which supplies our other locations in Arizona, as well. We also carry select outside products curated from third-party vendors.
You would not walk into a winery and ask for a glass with the highest alcoholic percentage, nor should you base your decision on selecting a cannabis strain based on its THC levels. THC and other cannabinoids, along with essential oils called terpenes, interact together to give each strain its unique smell, flavor, taste and experience. Come to a Reef Dispensaries location to evaluate various strains and find the right one for your needs.
If you are still interested primarily in the highest THC percentage, we also suggest you look into our line of extracts called Tryke Concentrates, which are up to 80% THC, thanks to our lab’s innovative extraction methods.
While cannabis is historically mainly consumed using its budded plant form, numerous scientific breakthroughs have been discovered over the years with extracts. We produce our own in-house extracts called Tryke Concentrates, which yield much higher THC levels, sometimes up to 80%. Some examples include:
a) Shatter: Shatter is a type of concentrate that can look a bit like solid honey and if dropped will break into multiple pieces like glass. It is made by extracting the chemicals from cannabis buds using a solvent, which is then evaporated from the buds, leaving behind the psychoactive resins of the plant. Shatter can be consumed via a specialized glass water piper called a “rig” via the extremely voluminous process of “dabbing,” among other methods.
b) Crumble: Much like shatter, crumble derives its name from its consistency, which is almost like a block of cheese or wax. It goes through a process not unlike that of shatter, using pre-purged oils and a lower heat, resulting a more appetizing flavor. Crumble is typically used as a “topping” for smoking flower and is also ingested via portable vape coils.
c) Distillate: Also called “clear,” thanks to its clean, transparent yellow appearance, distillate is derived from a process called “short path distillation,” resulting in an incredibly high-end concentrate. This highly potent THC solution then has terpenes re-introduced to achieve various flavors, and is then sold in cartridges that are perfect for vaping.
d) Budder: Budder is very similar to crumble, but gets its name from its “creamy” ear wax-like consistency and the fact that it goes through a “whipping process.” Budder extracts of White Zombie and Medusa are ideal for dabbing.
e) Live Sugar: Live sugar is almost like the “wine” of the concentrates line, as it goes through more of a refined process of extraction, preserving the bud’s flavor profile, medicinal benefits, retaining many of the cannabinoids and terpenes of the plant. A little pricier than the other concentrates, Reef Dispensaries offers Khalifa Kush Live Sugar, among other brands.
f) Rosin: Quickly gaining popularity in the extracts market is rosin, which is based on an almost instantaneous, solventless extraction process, involving heat and pressure to separate the resin from the plant. Fans of rosin appreciate this extraction technique because the lack of foreign substances, resulting in a product very similar to shatter.
g) Live Resin: Not to be confused with rosin, the live resin process of extraction does use a solvent, and is a butane based method, like many of the others talked about here. The difference is that the live resin process uses fresh plants, rather than plants that have been dried and cured. This creates a unique oil end product that retains the potent aroma of the original plant, maintaining the integrity of the terpene profile.
Reef does not currently produce its own edible products on site, but we do carry a variety of chocolates, cookies, gummies, butters, oils, and chews from trusted third party vendors.
Edibles have a bit of a sneaky side to them; a little bit can go a long way, and many times it takes a few hours to feel the effect. Because of this, people often make the mistake of overdoing it and taking too much. While results differ for everyone, here are a few handy tips.
a. Talk to a Reef patient consultant about finding the right edible for you, based on your age, body weight, gender, etc.
b. Start slow, take a small dosage if you are new to edibles and let it take effect over the course of a few hours before deciding to ingest more.
c. Eat non-infused food first so that you don’t have an empty stomach. Treat edibles like treats!
d. 10 mg – about the size of one gummy — is enough, in most cases. Prepare for a more intense high than you might get from smoking.
e. Keep out of reach of children. Secure edibles like the medicines that they are. You wouldn’t let a child have access to cough syrup, so keep edibles in the same safe, out-of-reach places that you would keep other types of medicine or alcohol.
Many patients from other states are used to “deli-style” service where the flower is weighed out in front of them, pulled from a communal jar. Nevada and Arizona do not allow such practices, but we also feel that pre-weighting is in the best interest of the consumer. Once our products pass testing, they are weighed out on state-certified scales and put into jars by trained employees wearing lab coats, gloves, hairnets and other protective gear. This insures the product is kept sanitary and is not compromised.

As much as we would love to walk all of our friends and patients through the cultivation facility, it is just not possible. Not only does it interrupt the cultivation staff’s workflow, but we also risk contamination each time the plants are exposed to outside visitors.
