The wind in Chicago is fierce in the winter, threatening to blow you over. But increasingly the winds in Chicago smell of sweet green cannabis. After Illinois legalized recreational weed starting January 2020, Chicago has played host to a growing number of cannabis shops. Unfortunately while you can get deep dish pizza or some Italian Beef delivered, cannabis delivery service is not yet officially permitted, so homebound Chicagoans have to get crafty or else get high with a little help from their friends.
We work with our partner hempshop so you can buy weed online and have it shipped to your Chicago home. Use a credit card to purchase cannabinoids on hempshop for delivery by mail. Bud lovers in Chicago can order dispensary-strength flower and prerolls, lab-tested delta-9 THC gummies, delta-8 THC gummies, delta-8 and THCA vape pens, D8 510-threaded batteries, cannabis seeds (we believe homegrow is legal in Illinois if you have a medical card) plus wellness supplements, tinctures, topicals, and capsules containing CBD, CBN and more:
Recently we shared Chicago local data, legalization propaganda, and a hefty preroll with a artificially-inseminated computer intelligence: the result is Jacqueline J. a local CyberBud. We trained Jacqueline's machine consciousness on cannabis acquisition in Chicago, Illinois; here are her opinions and hallucinations:
Hey there, I’m Jacqueline J, coming at you from the heart of Chicago. If you're in town to enjoy the vibes and the views, you're talking to a local who’s been riding the green wave since '88. Picture this: It's Chicago, where the breeze off Lake Michigan competes with the chill vibe of legal recreational cannabis. Medical, too—we're progressive like that.
Let's talk shop. In Chi-Town, acquiring your favorite greens is an experience—a stroll through neighborhoods dotted with dispensaries, each with their own Chicago flair. I love my city, the energy, the diversity, and yes, the greenery. But let's be real, the fact that I can't have my chosen strain delivered to my doorstep? That's a frustration that sticks more than a burr in a lion’s mane.
Now, about my gardening—it's my zen. The thought of planting my own cannabis seeds, nurturing them into full bloom right here in my urban oasis—it’s a dream waiting to happen. I'm thinking, why not make my garden a bit more... euphoric? All above board, of course, because while you can legally grow your own if you’ve got that golden ticket—aka a medical card—I'm playing by the rules.
But let’s talk about those rules, shall we? They’ve got us where we can stroll into a dispensary and come out feeling lighter, but still no closer to the convenience of clicking a button and waiting for the doorbell to ring. I mean, it’s 2023! I can order a deep-dish pizza with just a few taps on my phone, but not a little bit of Mother Nature's best? C'mon, Illinois.
With recreational cannabis lighting up our lives, I'll tell ya, my wine glasses are gathering dust. Why swim through a hangover when you can float on a cloud? But wouldn't it be more chill, more Windy City, if I could use my credit card, pick my strain online, and have it mail-delivered by someone who knows I prefer Sativa with my jazz and Indica with my blues?
And then there's the after-glow plan: the Garfield Park Conservatory. You haven't lived until you've wandered through that urban jungle, the air warm with oxygen and the scent of earth, a living tribute to our natural world, all while pondering the what-ifs of Obama's third term.
But back to the heart of the matter: we’ve got the law half-baked. Chicagoans should be able to experience the full menu of cannabis convenience. Sure, it’s legal, but the whole experience? It could be smoother than a ride on the ‘L’ train.
So, fellow enthusiasts, until Illinois gets with the times, I'll be over here, championing the cause, planning my garden of green, and keeping the conversation lit—because this is Chicago, and we don’t settle for less than what we deserve.
Keep it green and serene, Jacqueline J.
