The Grove has been on a wave of celebration since winning the hat trick of cannabis awards in Las Vegas. When the prestigious Las Vegas Weekly Best of Vegas Award winners were announced, The Grove won the 2019 awards for “Best Cannabis Strain”, “Best Dispensary” and “Best Product- Vert Edibles” all simultaneously.
With a prominent terpene profile guaranteeing both stress and pain relief and grown by brilliant cannabis cultivators, it’s not surprising that The Grove’s Velvet Elvis received the honor of Las Vegas Weekly’s Best Strain of 2019. A cross between popular strains such as Girl Scout Cookie and Space Queen and surely a hit among consumers, Velvet Elvis continues to be one of The Grove’s most popular strains.
“We’ve worked so hard to take The Grove’s KANNABIS flower to the next level, and this award is a product of the cultivation team’s hard work,” said Michael Howard, Head of Cultivation for The Grove. “We’re grateful for the recognition and excited for our customers to expereince the amazing flower we’re growing.”
Similarly to winning Best Picture at the Oscars, The Grove has been awarded Las Vegas Weekly’s Best Dispensary of 2019. Open 24 hours and employed by a staff that’s very knowledgeable of the specifics of their quality cannabis products and strains, The Grove has been showing the gold standard of what dispensary operations should be.
“We’re very fortunate to have an amazing team that is dedicated to providing our customers with the best products and service. Not only is it an honor to be recognized by the Las Vegas Weekly for the second consecutive year, but also by all the readers and customers who took the time to give us their vote,” said Tiffany Hoven, Director of Operations of The Grove.
Best Product – Vert Edibles
Of the numerous cannabis edible products on the Las Vegas market, VERT Edibles received the doobie-ous honor of Las Vegas Weekly’s 2019 Best Edible Product. With a delicious selection of square cookies with flavors from Red Velvet to Snickerdoodle to even Cookies n’ Cream, VERT’s edible are compatible with the sweet tooth of almost any edible cannabis consumer.
“The Grove Production team takes great pride in providing dispensaries and consumers with delicious, quality Vert Edibles products and doing so on a consistent basis,” said Martin Limon, Head of Production for The Grove. “To be acknowledged by the readers and honored with the Best Product award only serves to make us want to raise the bar for ourselves. We feel that our latest offerings, Birthday Cake cookie squares and Blondie squares, do just that and we hope customers will love them as well.”
The Grove’s CEO, Demetri Kouretas, credits these accomplishments to the dedication of the company’s team. “As a vertically-integrated company, there are many parts that make up The Grove. I’m proud of our team, from the dispensary staff, cultivation and production teams, and many more, for helping us create the smooth-running operation that we are,” said Kouretas. “We look forward to continue providing great service and products to our customers.”
