I was really excited when recreational weed was finally legalized in Illinois; I was sad to head to the dispensary plus check out the options! Living in Chicago, I have multiple cannabis shops to choose from.
I have shopped at all of them plus tried nearly every type of consumption method, however since our purpose for using cannabis is more about the curative properties than psychoactive effects, I’m mainly interested in high CBD products.
I have become a correct at the dispensary that offers the widest selection of CBD, but they include all sorts of really fantastic edibles plus beverages. I can purchase colas, sparkling seltzers, cannabeer plus mocktails. I am a fan of the gummies, chocolates, cookies plus peanut butter cups. I’ve come up with our own recipes using cannabis-infused oils plus cannabutters. The disposable carts are also an straight-forward way to get fast-acting effects, but all I need to do is push a button plus inhale. There’s none of the carcinogens, ash, smoke or odors friendd with smoking flower, plus I get an even higher concentration of cannabinoids plus terpenes, but one of our favorite methods is topicals. The dispensary sells roll-ons, transdermal patches, sprays, lotions, balms plus ointments that deliver localized treatment of bug bites, cuts, bruises, arthritis, psoriasis, aches plus inflammation, but because the topicals are infused with essential oils such as lavender, eucalyptus plus rosemary, they tend to odor really beautiful. I can use topicals with a higher THC level to benefit from analgesic effects plus yet there’s no worry over getting high. It’s just such a relief to be able to take advantage of the holistic properties of cannabis without needing a prescription from a doctor.
