Silver State Relief – Sparks, NV
Silver State Relief came about when co-founder, Garrett Newman, was living in Southern California. His family was visiting on vacation and told him that they wanted to open a dispensary in Reno to bring medical marijuana to the community where there was none at the time. “We applied for the application and got the top score in the state, and immediately began building out a custom design for the dispensary that you see on Greg St. today,” shares Newman. Silver State Relief, the first dispensary to sell legal medical marijuana in the state of Nevada, opened on July 31, 2015. Since then they’ve expanded to rooms for both medical and recreational within the one dispensary, even adding a whole separate entrance for increasing recreational patients. They’ve also just opened a second store in Fernley, Nevada to serve more rural northern Nevada residents.
The corner of Greg St. and McCarran Blvd. is a busy artery in the Reno-Sparks area, servicing commuters of the entire eastside. It’s a convenient location because of easy access to the parking lot and great neighbors like Capriotti’s, Starbucks and a Sinclair gas station. On Fridays, Silver State sees nearly 2,000 people on average. Along with a knowledgeable and friendly staff, Silver State Relief fosters a laid-back atmosphere where customers can get affordable pricing and a wide selection of products.
Silver State Relief prides itself on being the most affordable shop in northern Nevada, if not the state. Some of their best-selling products include Cheeba Chews, Tahoe Hydro pre-rolls and Silver State Trading vape cartridges — they also offer products unique to the Reno area. All of the flower at the Silver State Relief is grown in-house at their cultivation facility down the street from the shop.
