How does a caregiver purchase product for a Medical patient?
A caregiver can assist you with the use of medical cannabis. A caregiver must have a valid caregiver card to purchase on behalf of a medical cannabis patient with or without the patient present. Consider designating a caregiver when you first apply for a medical cannabis card. Complete the Designated Caregiver application and submit the required documents with your patient application.
Once you are registered with the state as a caregiver you can place an order on behalf of your medical patient, and pick-up in the dispensary or curbside on behalf of your patient. Your accounts will be unified through the patient’s medical card number.

Yes. Both medical and recreational marijuana are legal in Illinois.
Illinois is now the 11th state to legalize recreational marijuana for adult use, after J.B. Pritzker signed the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act into law in June 2019. As of January 2020, Illinois legalized cultivation, sale and possession of cannabis in limited amounts under the Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act.
The state allows the use of medical marijuana (MMJ) for eligible patients, who are also permitted to grow their own medicine. However, non-medical users are not allowed to cultivate their own cannabis.

While Illinois is among the states that have legalized marijuana for recreational use, legalization isn’t without limits.

For recreational use, residents of Illinois can legally possess 30 grams (about an ounce) of cannabis, 5 grams of cannabis concentrates, and about 500 milligrams of THC or cannabis-infused products, like tinctures and edibles.
If you’re a non-resident of Illinois, then you can only possess half of what the limits are for Illinois residents – which is 15 grams, 250 mg of THC and cannabis infusions and 2.5 grams of concentrates. For more information, see Overview of the Illinois Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act.
