With the first Illinois Medical Cannabis Dispensary opening on November 9,2015 , we thought it would be helpful to provide some information on how things are going and what we can look forward to in the future as Medical Cannabis becomes a more widely accepted and recommended treatment in Illinois.
According to multiple sources, the first week of sales was estimated at $211,000 with only a quarter of the eligible 3300 patients making a purchase. Many media outlets have reported that the cost of an ounce of Medical Cannabis can be up to $450. It is unclear at this point, if the pricing is playing a role in sales. The chart below was released by The Washington Post on June 22, 2015, showing the price of Medical Cannabis in states that are currently open to patients. It appears that Illinois falls right in the middle when it comes to the cost of Medical Cannabis products. Let us know if you have heard any feedback from anyone who has made a purchase.
