PRICES ARE REALLY HIGH.. pun intended. Considerably more bang for your buck at RISE. Joliet ..or Windy city cannabis. The carts are 15$ more( before tax) here @ verilife on average. The edibles are $20 more on average here than anywhere else.. would avoid if u could.read more

This is the best dispensary in the state...I would say I've ever been to, but they're stuck with silly Illinois rules... Getting to see and smell products before you buy them would be way better. The employees here are great! Nice, friendly, and knowledgeable. Been coming here since the day it opened... And it's the only one I'll go to even though a couple others are closer.read more

Appalling. What I witnessed at your establishment this evening was absolutely appalling. While waiting my turn, I observed your employees' interactions with two customers ahead of me. The first customer, who I'm confident was a veteran, seemed to grumble when asked to put his mask up but complied. Nevertheless, the girls behind the counter were so unnecessarily rude to him. A manager was even called over, who was also extremely rude. It was difficult to watch. The second man, conveniently of different pigmentation, also had his mask down. THEY DIDN'T SAY A WORD TO HIM. Didn't ask him to put his mask up, weren't a bit rude or disgruntled toward him, no manager involvement...interesting, to say the least. This establishment has a known history of treating customers poorly, and it's time something is done about it.read more

Have had some good experiences over the last 5 months, but have also had 3 bad experiences as well. Not terribly good at customer service or satisfaction. I would say not well managed, but that could just be the corporate policy. When things go wrong, communication ceases. The product is mostly decent. But when you are at the head of the line and after 2 hours in the heat and rain and you still haven't gotten in, it is pretty rude to not keep your customers apprised of any developments instead of scurrying in the door and closing it. If you aren't going to answer questions about what's being done and how long it will be, you don't deserve people's business. If people have driven sometimes 2 or 3 hours to get there, they at least deserve an answer.read more

Very nice and friendly! Had to make the 120 mile round trip here the other week as all the other close ones were shut down early for the day or closed. I wish this place was closer because I'd go all the time! This place has one of the best menus and alot of flower always in stock to pick from ! I got one of my all time fave strains (bear dance ) from this place the other week ! They're very friendly and there's plenty of parking! Will definitely be back even though it's 60 miles one way but I'll def be back to grab some stuff as their menu is literally one of the best ! Def reccomed doing the drive if you're a little ways away from this place because it's definitely a hidden gem !read more

A 30 min drive no problem well worth the drive. The staff and security are friendly and helpful also don't worry if you don't have a clue what to do when you get there . Just follow the next person's lead. To bad there wasn't a rewards after times visited with a small discount to make it a little easier on the pocketbook.read more

Thank you, to the staff for giving me the purchase room to myself. The staff cleared out the area, because I was trying so hard not to have an anxiety attack. They were so kind and patient. My feelings of fear and embarrassment melted away. Thank you for treating me with dignity and compassion. You all deserve a raise!read more

It's been pleasant for the most part. I wish the staff was a lot more enthusiastic about engaging with the clients. By this I mean, hey I am excited to come there, I am spending big money. I want to be helped by those who share my excitement about the products. I don't want to feel judged because I use it clearly for recreation. Sure, it helps certain medical conditions but I want you to be excited for me, be enthusiastic for the products. Most of all do not judge me for using it to get high. Do not judge me because I'm old. I love weed and I am excited I don't have to hide anymore. indulge me and at least pretend you love it too. after all your work thereread more

I highly recommend this place. It's more efficiently run than the dispensaries closer to me in central Illinois. They have an adequate # of cashiers, with different employees in the back filling orders so that the process goes smoothly. I was in and out in 5-10 minutes.read more

Love the staff and security, everyone has been very friendly. My only wish is for them to start carrying more types and strain specific concentrates. I have visited 3 times, 1st time 3 great concentrate options, second time zero concentrate options, 3rd time, 1 option! I am sure the selection increase as supply does, regardless this is my go-to dispensary.read more

It was a beautiful day and I wanted to get some treats from this place. I walked in checked out the menu and waited to enter the back room. Once I entered the room my jaw dropped to the beauty and kindness of one of the employees. She had the most gorgeous eyes and smile plus was super nice + knowledgeable + helpful with my specific needs. She helped me out and we agreed that life rips and high fived and I was on my way super satisfied. I think her name started with a J but anyways she was extremely helpful and a joy to talk to. If I was a wizard and anyone were to say otherwise about her I would turn them into one of those penguins with the big stupid eyebrows.read more

Very friendly, it’s (the process) has gotten a lot better but it’s the people who make the difference. I’ve been to other dispensaries and they maybe a bit more technical, but the service is very much on par which I think is really good. Do not know why you don’t allow tip jars as I’ve seen and fed them at other dispensaries. I feel that your employees are just as helpful and caring.read more

Professional, friendly staff, speedy service, diversified menu... This place is great. Prices are a little high, but this is all new for IL, so it's somewhat understandable. I answered a trivia question correctly the other day while waiting in line, and got some free papers. And today, they gave a free iron-on patch. Ultimately, I HIGHLY recommend this place! 🙂read more

It was nice. People are friendly. Confusing process even for people who have been to rec dispensaries in other states. Could benefit from an explanatory process for new customers along with assistance on product information. Fairly stringent on changing orders once in the actual dispensary. This is where the one on one attention with a customer service agent occurs and it would be nice to be able to ask product questions and get clarity on taxes and charges before being seemingly locked into the purchase.read more

Opening on legalization day January 1st 2020, they had a computer issue and worked to fix it as fast as possible, while in the meantime they kept everyone informed while they handed out hand warmers and menus. The staff was well organized in the face of adversity and a line of hundreds of people waiting on them, and operated with nothing but friendliness and efficiency. Everyone did a good job, despite delays that are honestly inevitable with this sort of thing.read more
