Take a look inside Las Vegas' first cannabis-infused beer bar

LAS VEGAS (CIRCA) — For decades, Nevada's strict laws on marijuana have kept cannabis products out of Las Vegas.

But in 2017, the state opened its doors to recreational use, leading to a boom in the cultivation, production and sale of cannabis products. Products are available in stores like Releaf, which features the first-ever Las Vegas cannabis bar.

Just beyond the entrance to the Releaf dispensary is Dana's Place — a quaint bar installation serving the first-ever de-alcoholized, cannabis-infused beer.

The beer itself, labeled Two Roots Brewing Co., is real beer brewed in San Diego, but features a rapid onset and offset THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) instead of alcohol, which allows for a more mild edible experience that last 30 to 40 minutes, similar to a traditional beer.

"Up until now, when you want to use an edible, which a lot of consumers go for their first time, it lasts six to eight hours, which is a long commitment for someone who may not be used to using cannabis," said sales manager KC Thompson. "When you have one of our beers, within five to 10 minutes you feel the effects, but it's never too much."

By breaking down one THC molecule into 8,000 nanoparticles, it's then able to enter your bloodstream much faster than other cannabis products, making it an ideal introductory product.

"Our goal is to create a product that consumers are already familiar with," said general manager Emmitt Reistroffer, who oversees the infusion process. "The only difference is this is with cannabis, not alcohol, which means, according to some people, it's more enjoyable."

Though this is currently the only venue in Las Vegas to enjoy Two Roots beer, Reisttroffer hopes to see cannabis lounges and full-scale cannabis bars on the strip in the next few years.

"Because it's a product that is so social, that's going to help bring this out into the mainstream and into public places, and not just a product that you'd use in your home,"he said.

You can visit Dana's Place in Releaf near the north side of the Las Vegas Strip right now, and visit the Cannabiniers website to find out more about their products.
