Marijuana itself has more than 100 active components. THC (which stands for tetrahydrocannabinol) is the chemical that causes the “high” that goes along with marijuana consumption. CBD-dominant strains have little or no THC, so patients report very little if any alteration in consciousness.

Patients do, however, report many benefits of CBD, from relieving insomnia, anxiety, spasticity, and pain to treating potentially life-threatening conditions such as epilepsy. One particular form of childhood epilepsy called Dravet syndrome is almost impossible to control, but responds dramatically to a CBD-dominant strain of marijuana called Charlotte’s Web. We carry CBD products in our store as well.

Illinois uses medical marijuana cards to regulate marijuana use throughout the state. This means you can only get one if you meet certain criteria.
You must be 18 years or above to qoalify for own medical marijuana card.
Adult caregivers can hold MMJ cards for minors as well. However, these require more rigorous vetting. Two doctors have to sign a certificate for a minor to qualify for medical marijuana.
You also must be a resident of Illinois. This is because Illinois doesn’t allow treatment of patients from outside the state.
You must have a diagnosis of one of the qualifying conditions. Some conditions are physical, while others come under the title of mental illnesses.
There are currently 52 conditions on the approved list.
