As of January 1st, 2020, Illinois became the 11th state to allow weed for personal use. Anyone 21+ years of age can purchase cannabis in our state. However, you will need valid identification that is scannable and cash for payment. We have an ATM on site.

Want to know more about the purchasing process and what’s available? Visit our FAQ page for lots of information including acceptable IDs, state laws governing where and when you can use or possess cannabis, as well as important notices. Also, visit our online order page to see all of our products, their attributes, and prices where you can conveniently place your order for pickup.

Residents are allowed a max of:

  • 30 grams (1 oz.) of flower/plant material
  • 5 grams of concentrate
  • 500 milligrams of THC in edibles (Max of 100mg each)

Visitors from out-of-state are allowed exactly half of those limits. Note that individuals cannot legally sell any amount of cannabis to anyone, and it’s illegal to smoke, vape, or consume cannabis in motor vehicles and public spaces.

Recreational Cannabis Consumption Methods

Cannabis consumption methods result in different effects on the mind and body. It’s essential to know a little bit about the endocannabinoid system. This regulatory network is responsible for balance in the body and plays an essential role in mood, pain, appetite, immune function, motor skills, pleasure, reproduction, sleep, and more. Cannabis connects with cell receptors that send signals to the brain and can offer therapeutic results.

Recreational cannabis offers relaxation, stress relief, enhances mindful engagement, helps to battle insomnia, and enhances creativity. Certain strains can make users feel more energized, artistic, and creative. Altius Dispensary always welcomes inquiries and enjoys sharing information, insight, and recommendations. Our staff is knowledgeable, happy to help, and strives to provide the best possible experience. Here’s a quick reference to a variety of consumption options:

Smoking cannabis flower is one of the most well-known consumption methods. You’re inhaling the smoke and all the active compounds, including THC. Because they are absorbed into the bloodstream by way of the lungs, the compounds hit the brain almost immediately for a near-instant high.

Vaping is an ideal option for those who are looking for fast relief from smoking but prefer to avoid carcinogens. Vaporization eliminates burning the plant material, instead of heating the cannabis to a point where the cannabis resin is released. Any odor dissipates almost immediately and modern cartridges offer disposable and refillable options.

Edibles offer an extremely easy, discreet yet potent, and tasty delivery method. Because the cannabinoids are metabolized through the liver, more THC is converted into usable forms by the body. The onset of effects can take anywhere between 20 minutes to three hours and effects can linger up to six hours.

Tinctures are another simple alternative to smoking. A highly concentrated, cannabinoid-rich product typically created by using alcohol as a solvent, they are ideal for micro-dosing, sublingual absorption for fast onset of effects and can also be added to foods for delayed onset. A long shelf life, portability and no concerns over odor make tinctures a favorite.

Pre-rolls provide the benefits of smoking premium flower with a lot less work. Rather than roll your own joint or blunt, take advantage of the consistency, perfection, and precision dosing of pre-rolls. All you need is a lighter. There’s no mess or waste. Plus, the affordability of singles makes them a great way to try new strains.

Topicals eliminate concerns over tell-tale odors, smoke, and psychoactive effects. Cannabinoids are combined with essential oils such as lavender and eucalyptus to provide a variety of balms, lotions, ointments, and more. Easy and able to be applied multiple times per day, cannabis-infused topicals may help alleviate arthritic pain, joint inflammation, muscle soreness, and chronic skin conditions.

Extracts encompass a long list of products that typically offer higher levels of cannabinoids and vary widely in THC and CBD concentrations. Available in solid or liquid form and often named after appearance or consistency, such as budder, honeycomb, shatter, or wax, they are most often smoked, vaped, or added to dried cannabis flower. Dabbing is a fairly new option for vaping extracts that requires a dab rig, nail, torch, and dab tool.
