Possession and Cultivation

The possession/cultivation of cannabis limits vary for registered medicinal cardholders and caregivers and for recreational users. When cannabis is prescribed for a certain disorder, the purchasing power is greater with fewer taxes and the ability to possess more. A registered medical cannabis patient can possess up to 2.5 ounces of cannabis at a time and cultivate up to 12 cannabis plants as long as they live at least 25 miles from a medical dispensary. In some cases, a caregiver can become exempt from the 25-mile exemption.  


Like a registered cardholder, Nevada caregivers must prove they are residents of the state with a driver’s license or identification card. Additionally, a caregiver must be 21 years of age or older. 

There are specific possession laws for caregivers, who are allowed to purchase up to 2.5 ounces every two weeks on behalf of their patient, surpassing the one ounce recreational limit every two weeks. Additionally, as a Nevada caregiver, one may be able to find themselves exempt from the state rule that bars cultivation within 25 miles of an operational dispensary. 

Nevada offers up to 10% medical cannabis savings as opposed to recreational sales.
