Strain Spotlight: Banana Kush Vape Cartridge

City Trees Banana Kush Vape Pen Cartridge

These vape pen cartridges were manufactured by City Trees, located right here in Las Vegas, NV! Take the guesswork out of concentrates by simply attaching one of these to a standard e-cig battery with 510 sized screws. Grab one today from Thrive Cannabis Marketplace. Charge it up, heat it up and enjoy!

Each vape cartridge is filled with 500mg of Banana Kush CO2 oil. Banana Kush is an indica dominant hybrid of Ghost OG and Skunk Haze. As with most vapes, there is no overwhelming scent; a huge benefit to those who wish to keep their medication private. When the battery is heated and the vape is inhaled, it crosses the tongue like a bushel of fresh, sweet bananas with a slight tang of sherbet. The exhale is more muted with notes of diesel and freshly cut grass.

Banana Kush provides the body effects of an indica with a mellow sativa buzz providing a relaxed sense of well-being and an overall feeling of happiness. The relaxation starts behind the eyes and spreads throughout the body within minutes, while the mind remains focused and energized. Medically, this could be a fantastic strain for assisting with depression and social anxiety. Many have reported feeling extra talkative, creative, relaxed, carefree and social when consuming this strain recreationally in moderate doses. Simply take a few more tokes when you’re ready for bed! Contact Thrive Cannabis Marketplace and talk with a budtender in Downtown Las Vegas to learn more about the Banana Kush vape cartridge.


4 Health Benefits of Smoking Marijuana

Weed Smoking Paraphernalia

It’s become somewhat common knowledge that cannabis causes munchies, red eyes and cottonmouth. Most people now understand how marijuana helps in coping with pain, inflammation and seizures and research is showing that it’s compounds may promote negative tumor growth in cancer patients and potentially could offer relief to those with MS.

Less commonly known are the benefits of smoking weed for all smokers, both medicinal and recreational. Now that purchasing and consuming pot is legal for some patients in more than half of US states, research on the positive effects of smoking are becoming less rare and many more benefits are coming to light. Here are just 4 things we know smoking marijuana does to the human body.

Marijuana Lowers Blood Pressure

Marijuana is a vasodilator. That’s a fancy word for something that opens up your blood vessels allowing for better circulation and lower blood pressure. This is what gives people those telltale bloodshot eyes when they smoke pot. It’s also the property of cannabis that makes it so effective in treating Glaucoma, according to research, in that it reduces intraocular pressure by up to 25%.

Cannabis Promotes Deep Sleep

Studies have shown that smoking weed can help you fall asleep and increases the time you spend in deep sleep. It’s also been reported by many users and some preliminary studies that smoking cannabis close to bedtime can reduce or eliminate time spent in REM sleep. This is extremely useful in reducing the occurrence of nightmares, especially in those diagnosed with PTSD, allowing for well rested and continuous sleep.

Smoking Pot Makes You Cool

Sorry, it’s not going to make you look any better in a Fedora. Not that kind of cool, cooler in temperature. A study published in the US National Library of Medicine suggests that marijuana (specifically CBD, a cannabinoid found in pot) can affect the transient receptor potential channels in your body, which affect how you feel temperature. As a result, toking on a joint on a hot Vegas day can give you just a bit of relief!

Weed Can Improve Your Sex Life

People have been using cannabis for sexual enhancement for thousands of years. It’s been known anecdotally that smoking marijuana improves libido, lowers inhibitions and boosts creativity in bed. Recently, study is showing that smoking pot triggers dopamine release in the brain. This creates an overall feeling of confidence, happiness and elation that contribute to sexual enjoyment. And THC increases your overall sensory perception, which makes the body more sensitive to the smells, sights, sounds and sensations of physical intimacy. Finally, cannabis’ property as a vasodilator can moderate erectile dysfunction in men and increase sensitivity in women, potentially allowing for more arousal and better orgasms.

There are so many more positive effects of smoking weed, and we haven’t even begun to talk about edibles! Come in to Thrive Cannabis Marketplace in our North Las Vegas dispensary. Our staff are thrilled to talk to you about all the ways cannabis can improve your life.

Cheeba Chews

Assorted Bags of Cheeba Chews Edibles

Cheeba Chews are here! These delicate, gluten free cannabis edibles were created in Colorado during the medical cannabis boom to answer the industry’s lack of consistency in edibles. Cheeba Chews were designed to be consistent, potent and discreet, and they certainly deliver in all three areas. Each 10g piece of Cheeba Chew can be divided equally into 4 pieces, for a consistent dose of 15 mg of THC in every bite.

Cheeba Chew side effects are similar to most edibles. Some may experience a body buzz, muscle relaxation, and an intense feeling of euphoria lasting 4-6 hours. Overconsumption can lead to paranoia, racing thoughts and manic behavior. Always begin with a small dose of Cheeba Chew; How much to eat will vary from person to person.


Indica Cheeba Chews usually last for 5-6 hours and produce a wonderful sensation of relaxation, anxiety relief, and euphoria. Many consumers may prefer eating these alone at night while enjoying some relaxing music or a movie.


Hybrid Cheeba Chews are a fantastic compromise for those who enjoy the sedative effects of an indica edible but also want to remain balanced and social. This chew is a perfect mix of both worlds and available at most Las Vegas dispensaries.


Sativa Cheeba Chews are the chosen edible of consumers who want daytime relief from chronic pain, nausea, tremors or the like, but also want to remain somewhat mentally sharp and functional. These chews are a great option for consumers who want to be productive and social in the daytime but still want to enjoy a euphoric buzz.


CBD Cheeba Chews are an amazing pair for those who enjoy the anxiety and pain relief of CBD, while also reaping the benefits of THC therapy. These candies are amazing at controlling seizures, dulling pain, soothing the mind and presenting an overall sense of well being, while functioning with a relatively clear head. Recreational users may enjoy the “mellow” effects of these CBD chews as it still contains THC, though enough CBD to moderate the “high” feeling.

Thrive Cannabis Marketplace proudly carries Cheeba Chews quad doses for both our medical marijuana patients and our recreational customers. Stop into one of our cannabis dispensaries in Downtown Las Vegas to experience any of our edibles for sale in Las Vegas. Have questions? We’ve got answers! Contact our stores for more information about Cheeba Chews, edibles and all things cannabis.


Pure Kush Strain Review

Jar of Pure Kush

Pure Kush is an indica-dominant strain that belongs in every MMJ patient’s medical kit. It is extremely potent, often measuring up to 22% THC content, and is considered one of the strongest strains of medical marijuana available. This strain is not to be taken lightly, as its intense sedative effects can knock out even the most experienced of smokers. But used responsibly, it’s masterful at alleviating the suffering of chronic aches and pains.


Pure Kush strain is a powerful phenotype of the famous OG Kush. Though ubiquitous, the origins of OGK are somewhat of a mystery. It’s believed that OGK is a descendant of Pakistani Chitral Kush. This strain was developed via a natural landrace in a Pakistani town known for making of the best hash in the Middle East. This strain found it’s way to Florida, where it was possibly bred with Chemdawg, and found its way to California where it exploded onto the scene in 1995.

The buds are olive green, dense, and shaped like pinecones, with bright orange pistils and lots of sticky trichomes. The aroma is extremely pungent with pine forest oak and earth tones.


Flowers burn with a harsh, thick smoke that can be overwhelming for new smokers. Novices to cannabis may prefer concentrates for this reason. The smoke tastes oaky and skunky with strong tones of spice.


The high creeps up slowly, then hits hard and fast. Most Pure Kush reviews describe these effects:

  • Warm, gentle pressure around the face
  • Sensory distortion
  • Amplification of lights and sounds
  • Time slows down
  • Couchlock
  • Wandering euphoric thoughts
  • Increased appetite
  • Extreme sedation
  • Pain relief

Those who suffer from anxiety or insomnia will enjoy the calming, sedative effects as Pure Kush isn’t known for causing racing thoughts or paranoia. Its body high is extremely effective for relieving pain, aches, cramps, muscle spasms, and headaches.

Be warned: Pure Kush is a powerful sedative and isn’t ideal for those who have work to do (unless your job is to binge-watch Netflix and giggle.)
