A patient’s first visit to a medical marijuana dispensary can be a bit nerve-wracking, especially if he or she doesn’t have any prior experience with the substance. Thankfully, with a bit of research and going in prepared, most patients can have a pleasant experience in a dispensary, and will be able to benefit from the advice and guidance of the staff if need be. Here is a guide to medical marijuana dispensaries in Cook County for those who are unfamiliar with the rules, procedures, and proper etiquette.
Bring Government-Issued ID And Your Identification Card
Each and every time you go to the dispensary, you will be required to show both your government-issued identification and your Illinois Medical Cannabis Qualifying Patient Registry Identification Card. The dispensary staff member won’t likely ask for these pieces of identification until you are ready to make your final purchase, and if you don’t have either of these cards with you it can result in you and the staff member wasting your time. Keep them in your wallet, and be sure that you have them before you start browsing. Keep in mind that at many Illinois dispensaries, temporary photo identification is insufficient, so be sure to bring bona fide, government-issued identification.
Do Some Research
Before you head down to the dispensary, do a bit of research on methods of ingestion and the variety available from your chosen dispensary ahead of time. This helps to cut down on the amount of time you spend at the dispensary, and can give you a good place to start when it comes to figuring out which method works best for you. It also helps the staff ensure that you have a positive experience, and that the medical cannabis you’ve been prescribed works as best it can for you.
Respect Your Fellow Patrons
It’s important to give everyone in line enough space so they can discuss their sensitive medical issues with the dispensary staff without being overheard. You wouldn’t want other people overhearing your confidential information, so have the same respect for your fellow patrons.
