Are Cannabis Concentrates Legal in Nevada?

All marijuana-based products, such as cannabis concentrates, are legal in Nevada. Cannabis concentrates is extracted from marijuana, making it more potent than consuming a marijuana plant.

Common types of marijuana concentrates include:

  1. Hashish (hash)

  2. Kief

  3. Wax

  4. Badder or budder

  5. Live resin

  6. Tinctures

Adults who are 21 years of age or older may possess up to 1/8 of an ounce (or 3.5 grams) of marijuana concentrates for personal use. Concentrates can only be consumed or used in a private residence – not a hotel or dorm room.

Possession of cannabis concentrates in public is a misdemeanor, punishable by a $600 fine. Being under the influence of concentrates is also a misdemeanor, but carries more severe penalties, such as a maximum six-month jail term and fines of up to $1,000.

Possession of more than 3.5 grams – but less than one pound – of marijuana concentrates for personal use is a Category E felony, punishable by imprisonment between one year and four years, as well as fines not exceeding $5,000. However, defendants who plead guilty or no contest may be eligible for “deferral of judgment,” which means they can get their case dismissed if they follow certain conditions.

Possession with intent to sell or distribute is a Category D felony, which carries a maximum prison sentence of four years and fines of up to $5,000. The act of selling or transporting concentrates is a Category C felony, punishable by imprisonment for up to five years and fines no more than $10,000.
