In 2015, Britten was drawn to Nevada by its rigorous regulatory structure. He and his family moved to the state after determining its intense and all-inclusive regulatory environment could further legitimize the medical cannabis industry, as well as what was then the future development of the recreational cannabis industry. THRIVE Cannabis Marketplace opened its first Nevada dispensary for medical patients in 2016 in North Las Vegas, and a second location later that year in Downtown Las Vegas. Its third location, just west of the Las Vegas Strip opened in September 2019. THRIVE opened its first Northern Nevada location in Reno in November and recently announced a new location in the Southern Highlands neighborhood of Las Vegas, which will open in April 2020.

Under Britten’s leadership, THRIVE remains committed to understanding and facilitating the needs of its customers while honoring the laws governing cannabis. While providing the widest variety and highest-quality cannabis, THRIVE aims to set a positive example in the cannabis industry by eliminating negative stigmas and inaccurate stereotypes surrounding cannabis consumption. Supporting charities, culture and the local economy are all important to Britten and the entire THRIVE team, who strive to create an upbeat atmosphere based on professionalism, compassion and security.
