The wide selection of cannabis options helps reveal what works best for one's needs. At 73, cannabis reduces my aches... and pains in cold, damp weather while helping me get better sleep. It feels good to be in a 'laid back mood'.read more

I've been going there since it opened. Today I had the nicest, and most helpful experience ever. I live in Bourbonnais... and take an hour drive, just to come there. Best customer service ever, in all the times I have been there.read more

KAYLA!! If I could give you 6 stars I would. So polite and kind, VERY HELPFUL TOO! I've been going to Ascend since they... opened, I've always had wonderful service, but Kayla has helped me before and I've always enjoyed my visits more because of her. She tells me about discounts each time I have her, and she tells me about my reward points every time, and what I can redeem with them. Plus her taste in music is impeccable. I can't wait to come back to Ascend now, I know I’ll leave just as happy as I am today!read more
My 5 - Star is for Anthony and Amy who are such an amazing help every time I have questions regarding the products I've... ordered.5- STAR CUSTOMER SERVICE FOR THEM TWO!They are thorough with details and offer great explanation with their kind personalities.I always hope they are the ones that are my sales rep in the days I come in.The SIMPLY HERB is my favorite. I like the deals they offer with the points.They always have something on sale! The bonus points offers are fair and they build up fast for you to claim good deals! Remember to ask about your points everytime.The online ordering experience could be better. The online ordering system does not always operate smoothly and the points do not connect across their other locations.read more

Did not take me in within 10 minutes of closing. Its their job to take care of customers until they close at 9. No... excuse for denying customers. Its your job to take care of the people coming in not just send them back.read more

They're open 9a-9p daily. You can place your order online and add items in-store. They can also help you find specific... items you're looking for. I'm usually in and out in under 5 minutes. They're helpful if it's your first time there or know nothing about the products so you don't have to feel weird. The employees are really cool there.read more

Very slow service and prices are higher then the usually Illinois dispensary. There point system does not work like... Cureleaf dispensary which I found way better and you save a good amount of money.Only good about this place is you don't have to wait outside.read more

One of the employees, I believe their name is Dre, is always the absolute sweetest, patient budtender I’ve ever... experienced. They always offer so much insight not only about the products from Ascend, but other products In other markets for me to compare. I appreciate they are always so upbeat whether it be dancing or smiling at customers to engage us. No matter how unpleasant i May have been (sometimes i was) Dre always remained calm and helpful. I appreciate seeing them whenever I come in.read more

Christian from the Chicago ridge location is one of the most helpful and knowledgeable customer service reps I've... encountered. Always letting me know promotions and discounts currently available so I always get the best prices! I'm definitely a regular customer so I enjoy being able to find out new strains as they reach the building. This dispensary is my go to place!read more

The staff was nice and the line was indoors and went fast. I would rate much higher and normally don’t do reviews but:... I got a disposable pen that did not work. I went back the next day and they wouldn’t take it they said I had to send a video clip of it not working to their email to get a refund or replacement. I sent the video email that day. Waited about a week abs heard nothing so I followed up email with a question of ETA or any information. They have yet to respond at all and it has been a month. I would be happy to get back but won’t until they respond to this issue.read more

Great bud tenders and everyone here is friendly. Usually receive good tips from the bud tenders on which new strains to... try. My only issue has been with the inconsistency regarding the use of reward points- I had been buying my weekly supply from Ascend for over 4 months and had always been able to use my points toward my purchase. Well this changed when I went in to pick up a couple of Ascend eighths, which are always on sale for 10% off, but prior to this my discount would still apply . Now it doesn’t which means if you mostly buy Ascend, you can rarely use your points (which have cash value) so some of the value is lost to me, hence 4 stars instead of 5 stars. Still a great dispensary otherwiseread more

Friendly budtenders who give great recommendations on what strains to get based on your needs. Even with long lines... it's a quick in-and-out because of their online ordering. The quality of the bud they carry is usually very good and the prices are mostly the same as the other big dispensaries in the area. Their loyalty system is also pretty nice, giving you free pre-rolls or extremely cheap bud once you have enough points. Definitely recommend Ascend.read more

Tom the GM took care of me and made me change my review. He gets a 5 Star. The rest of the store reps are nice too.... Jose the Manager just doesn't know how to talk to customers. If it wasn't for my experience with him, it would get 5 stars.read more

I love coming here. I don’t have a medical card, so it’s no biggie for me that they don’t do medical. I’ve rarely... encountered the same person at the greeting desk, and every person who greets me is nice, professional, and asks how I am. Honestly, I haven’t had one bad experience with a staff member, and I go at all different times and different days. They don’t make you feel like you are being rushed. Everyone has been knowledgeable on the products. I’m a Chatty Cathy, and they don’t mind having a conversation through the process and while waiting for my products to come up. There’s 1 girl in particular I go out of my way to be in her line or her register, a petite younger girl, I don’t know if she’s Arab or Hispanic. Long dark hair (giving a description because I don’t know her name and I want to give her a personal shoutout) she’s so sweet, and I just love talking to her while waiting. She’s knowledgeable and always gives the best suggestions for products when I’m feeling indecisive, which is often. Oh and their rewards system is pretty good, I’m always getting a bunch of points, and free stuff with the points I’ve accumulated. I’ve had issues with products only a couple times, but that’s bound to happen, human error is unavoidable. Each time they walked me through the process for the replacement, it was easy to do, and the problem was immediately solved. Definitely would recommend this place.read more

I really love this location! Not only is it close to my house, but the staff is so friendly! I have really bad social... anxiety and walking in to any store is terrifying to me! The people here are so kind and patient. The inside is so spacious and they have a ton of different products to try. The overall vibe inside is calm and relaxed.

Terrible rewards program. Any other dispensary in the area is much better and will have the same products. Don’t come... here. Staff is not knowledgeable and managers sit around and only come to tell you there’s nothing they can do for any problem you have. Staff member Courtney did a great job and is the best and only good experience I’ve had here. Besides that DO NOT recommend.read more

I was so excited to see a dispensary open up in my town, but wow - what an absolute disappointment. The person who... greeted me was very unprofessional, he was bashing another local dispensary, which was not what I wanted to hear when I was buying weed. Also, the budtender had no knowledge on the concentrate products that I was curious in - I had a couple of questions and what I got was “I have no idea”....Overall, energy and vibes were terrible, I won’t be returning.read more

The new king in town! Ever since Ascend opened I have taken my business here. Not only is their loyalty rewards program... much better than the local competition…they also offer a HUGE selection of everything from flower to oil, to edibles and the latest new products! There is no shortage of staff, and they are all friendly and knowledgeable! Make sure you check often for one day only sales, and really amazing discounts! Ascend eliminates the “doctors office” feel to going to the dispensary and turns it into a quality shopping experience. Will be coming here from now on!read more
