Two ways to become an Illinois patient

At AYR Cannabis Dispensaries, we’d be happy to guide you through the process to become a medical cannabis patient. Come into our dispensaries to discuss your options with our friendly and knowledgeable staff.

Medical Cannabis Patient Program

Cannabis has been shown to possibly help alleviate a number of medical conditions. Get on the right path towards better health and wellness.

Opioid Alternative Program

Opioids are often prescribed for pain management but can be potentially addicting and dangerous. Find relief with medical cannabis instead.
