When Vegas steps in, you know it will be big, loud, and flashy, and Planet 13 Holdings Inc. (OTCQX:PLNHF) exemplifies this perfectly.

Planet 13 Holdings Inc. is a vertically integrated cannabis company based in Las Vegas, Nevada. The company is probably best known for its massive cannabis superstore located just off the Vegas strip. Their flagship store recorded an impressive $63M in revenue and over one million visitors in 2019, accounting for nearly 10% of all of Nevada’s cannabis sales that year.

A store of this kind would have been unheard of only a few years ago. At 13,000 square feet, this complex is massive. Consumers have access to a coffee shop, bistro, event space, and, of course, the dispensary itself.

It’s far closer to a ‘cannabis experience.’ Something you’d expect only Las Vegas to birth. It’s a destination in and of itself for cannabis connoisseurs visiting Sin City. Not only that, but much of the product sold in this superstore is produced directly by Planet 13 Holdings Inc. Nearly 30% of all sales in the superstore were inhouse brands.
