It's Time For a Little Recreation

Recreational marijuana is legal in Illinois.

Verilife is thrilled to guide you through your experience, whether you’re a beginner or a cannaisseur. Here are some things you can expect when shopping at a Verilife dispensary.

Options

Check out the menu handout and ask any Verilife staff member questions you might have while waiting. Don’t worry, you can always come back to try new things!

Cash only

We only accept cash payments. We have an ATM on-site (fees may apply). We encourage you to plan ahead. 

Check-In

Have your state ID ready to hand to a representative. If you don’t have a government-issued ID you will not be able to enter the dispensary. No temporary ID's will be accepted.

Let us help you — We can do it together.

You might be a little unfamiliar or even overwhelmed. Don’t worry, we’ve got your back. We’ve come up with a simple formula to help determine the type of cannabis you might be interested in purchasing: Time + Feeling + Method = Form. 

Your answers will help lead you in the right direction.

Let's talk about ‘The hows’

Now that you have more of an idea about what you want to buy. Let’s talk about how much you should take, how long will it take before you will feel the effects, how long will it last, and how much you can possess.

 

Possession limits

Illinois allows a person to possess a limited amount of marijuana at one time. These amounts are a cumulative combination of marijuana flower, marijuana-infused products, and concentrates up to the limit for each category of product.

Illinois residents

30 grams of flower | 5 grams of concentrates | 500 milligrams of marijuana-infused products (like edibles)

Non-Illinois residents

15 grams of flower | 2.5 grams of concentrates | 250 milligrams of marijuana-infused products (like edibles)

How much to take?

Start low & go slow. Everybody’s different. Each person responds to marijuana differently. Factors like body weight, metabolism, experience, and tolerance can impact how quickly and how long you feel the effects of marijuana.

Smoke & Vape

Take 1 small puff (or hit) and allow 15 minutes for effects to appear.


Effects are immediately felt and can last a few hours.

Eat & Drink

Beginner dose: 1-2.5 mg | Intermediate dose: 5-10 mg


Effects are felt in 1-2 hours and can last several hours.

Drops & Tinctures

Take 1-2 drops under your tongue and allow 30-60 minutes for effects to appear.


Effects occur quickly and can last several hours.

Lotions & Balms

Start with a small amount and wait 15 minutes to see how you feel.


Effects can last 1-2 hours.

Start low & go slow.
