Deep Roots Harvest is a Nevada cultivator and dispensary operator. They recently opened their second dispensary, Deep Roots Wendover in West Wendover, Nevada. We previously reviewed Deep Roots in Mesquite, NV, finding ridiculously high concentrate prices with some decent flower deals.
Here we review the dispensary and see why we ended up not stopping by after seeing the menu. This place is a huge price gouge to people living in rural Nevada.
Recommendations: West Wendover needs to approve at least one more dispensary in the area. Deep Roots did the same thing in Mesquite: only one in town, really high prices.
Check out our video review of Deep Roots Wendover below, then keep reading on for the more detailed review:
The first thing we noticed when we were researching the menu for this dispensary is the insanely high prices.
The “cheaper” half gram THC vape cartridges are $55 and they had one for $80 made with live resin. That’s without tax.Most of those $55 carts are also their house brand, with the same name.
The first part of the extracts menu we noticed is it’s also mostly just the house brand, Deep Roots Harvest. It would be great to have a mix in here of other brands. Prices on extracts are still high with most half grams being $45 and full grams being $60.
At the time we went syringes of distillate, CO2, or live resin were available. So not many options to fill your own carts.
There are some places off the strip that charge that much, but most people who know where to shop are avoiding those kinds of places. In West Wendover, Deep Roots is your only option unless you drive and that’s how much you’ll pay.
Having tried Deep Roots Harvest flower I can say it’s good quality bud. I would not put it on the level of Cannabiotix or some of the best brands in Nevada, but it’s still a good quality product and above average.
When visiting Deep Roots Harvest in Mesquite we also came across very high prices, but at least they had a house brand specialized on flower almost always going for $10 a gram.
West Wendover has only approved one dispensary and that’s why the only option unless you are willing to drive farther is Deep Roots Harvest. That might change in the future, but it has been that same way in Mesquite for the past couple of years.
Not every remote dispensary is overpriced, but that often is the theme. It’s a shame that rural residents are left with only a very expensive option, but it’s still better than nothing.
If you are heading south anyway from Wendover on the 93, or feel like checking out Ely general, skip Deep Roots and proceed directly to Tsaa Nesunkwa. There you will find way better prices, a wide variety of brands and you’ll be supporting the local Native tribe.
The only downside to Tsaa is they only take state medical cards to get medical tax taken off, a doctor’s recommendation does not work. They do allow recreational purchases though and after you spend $300, you can get 10% off the next purchase.
Heading west to Reno through Wendover? Maybe get something small at Deep Roots, then wait until you get to Reno and checkout The Dispensary in Mid Town Reno. They have the best selection in Reno and so far the best prices. They also carry one of our favorite cart brands, Roots.
They got a big parking lot at this place and there’s not a long walk to the door. Although we did not go in, this was clearly visible from the road.
Considering West Wendover is a smaller town, those are not bad hours at all. In Las Vegas or Reno, we expect places to be open much later and some are even 24 hours, but Deep Roots does have adequate hours given the size of the town.
This dispensary is madly overpriced, but it’s the only thing around. For anyone traveling farther than West Wendover and going much further into Nevada whether South or West, better dispensaries await down the highways. If you are not going that much further or just staying in Wendover, this might be your best stop.
For us, we won’t be shopping here in any substantial capacity anytime soon.
