Can you believe this weekend marks my having left Chicago 90 days ago? Seems longer, seems shorter; one thing is certain, no shortage of philosophizing or taking advantage of the laws in my new state.
There are a lot of options for herbs here – I already like some places more than others and I love discovering new dispensaries, strains and ways to get high. For your trips, for your friends’ trips, for your reading and viewing pleasure, here’s a glimpse into my legal life of shopping for pot. Before you visit here’s a breakdown of Amendment 64.
Oddly enough, going into a shop and buying pot made me anxious – I stuck to the same spot and wouldn’t go to new places without a buddy. Ha – that lasted a couple weeks, and while I am still a little nervy, everyone is so cool and helpful it’s quickly becoming my new favorite errand.
ID – check! Cash – check! Let’s go buy some pot at a store.
MY FIRST FAVORITE SHOP: The Health Center This shop reminds me of a tiny cottage – very cute, small, friendly staff. Overall, awesome. Parking and packaging are not my favs, but hey, at least there’s parking!
THE BEST BUDS: Lightshade
Lightshade on Holly popped on my radar – was a touch further from my place than I like to travel, but so worth it!
Being a bit of a web-ho marketing magnet, I fell in love with the UX on their site and their social presence. They lived up to their online content with a cool spot, super-sweet staff and baller selection of concentrates. Yup, you heard me right – I’m loving that wax! Lightshade is also one of the only spots where you can use a CC.
THE PRICE IS RIGHT: Good Chemistry
$30 1/8ths every day. Which is surprising because the feel at Good Chemistry is quite boutiquey. The ads alone are Vouge style – look at that sexy photography below! The menu is split up by ‘amplify,’ ‘relax,’ ‘relieve,’ and ‘sleep’ – people there are cool, they love talking about weed and are sure to find you the best buzz for your stoney times.
Are you ready to visit now? Heard of a place you think I should check out? Let’s philosophize about it!
Have a great weekend loves!
