I recently moved across the country for the sake of a better task; I got offered a position with a better title and benefits, higher pay and more upward mobility, then although packing up and relocating was a lot of work, stress and expenses, it was worth it. I was excited to move to IL, and certainally, the city of Chicago. I was a little apprehensive about the freezing winters, however there is really good shopping, amazing diners and an extensive music and art scene, plus, recreational cannabis was legalized for purchase and possession back in 2019, and residents over the age of 21 simply need to show valid government-issued identification to shop at the dispensary. I can buy 30 grams of cannabis flower, 5 grams of a concentrate or 500 mg of THC in a cannabis-infused product, but moving to an area with legal cannabis was a big perk. I don’t drink alcohol, smoke cigarettes or take any category of prescription medicineâ€¦ However, I do prefer to smoke marijuana flower to socialize or relax. It is really good to be able to shop brands and strains that have been extensively inspected and verified as safe, the label provides the THC and CBD percentages, terpene profile and harvest date. There are no seeds, stems or problems over mold, spider mites or other contaminants. I can also shop for the necessary paraphernalia, such as pipes, papers, rolling trays and whatever I need to enhance the experience. I am having fun buying single pre-rolls and trying out modern flavors, brands, strains and potency of flower.
