Planet 13 Holdings Inc.

On the Las Vegas Strip, Planet 13’s 112,000-square-foot Superstore dispensary is well-known. Planet 13 will establish the largest marijuana dispensary in the state in 2021 when it opens a massive location in Orange County.  Planet 13 has two superstore dispensaries that are among the biggest in the world. A retail dispensary and a smaller version of the business’s main website are available at the Medezin location.

Revenue for Planet 13 fell by 22.2%, from $33.0 million to $25.6 million, in the third quarter of 2022. Additionally, the gross profit decreased by 41.2% and 53.8%, respectively, from $10.6 million to $10.7 million.

Due to Nevada’s quick expansion, the company’s first harvest happened in September. In December, Planet 13 was granted a license to make the eagerly awaited addition of a consumption lounge to the legendary Las Vegas SuperStore experience.

Words From The Co-CEOs

“2022 was a difficult year for cannabis investors, and as CEOs and holders of over 78 million shares of Planet 13 combined, we certainly empathize with shareholders. 2022 was the worst year for the markets since 2008, and our industry was not spared. Prices were down across the board for cannabis stocks, with the biggest driver, as we saw in December, the failure of reform at the federal level. At Planet 13 we can only control what we can control and so that is what we focus on. We’ve maintained an 8-10% market share in Nevada while cutting costs to maintain margins. We are growing revenue in California. We’ve made progress on our growth initiatives in Florida and Illinois, setting the stage for us having operations in four states by the end of 2023 and we continue to have one of the strongest balance sheets and cleanest capital structures in the cannabis industry.”
