Medical Cannabis Will Be Available on November 9

Be Well

HW_FC_D_StackedIt is with great happiness that we announce that Salveo Health & Wellness will be selling Medical cannabis starting tomorrow Monday November 9th at our dispensary located at 3104 North Main Street, in Canton, Illinois. We have received shipments today from four cultivators, and the state and Biotrack software are finishing up a few last minute items tonight. As long as there are no problems with any of these we are good to go.

We are providing temporary expanded hours of operations to give all our patients the time they deserve when visiting our dispensary. We will be open from 10am to 7pm Monday thru Sunday this week. We have 12 medical cannabis strains available as dry flower from several growers for sale. The number of strains we carry will grow from here and oil, concentrates, and edibles will follow down the line.

This website will be updated with information on the strains that will be available. Call us at 309-647-9333 if you have any questions about what will be in the store, about the best product to treat your condition, or about pricing.

Limited Store Hours in Advance of Medicine Being Available


The Salveo Health & Wellness Dispensary is serving limited hours while waiting for cannabis to be available in Illinois. Patients that have received their medical cannabis cards will have access to the entire facility and will be able to purchase all of our non-cannabis retail products. Non-cardholders will be able to enter the front lobby where we have a range of wellness products and literature available.

Patients may come in for a consultation during these hours – with or without a card – or can contact us to schedule an appointment outside of these times.

Mon: 10am – 5pm
Tues: Closed
Wed: 10am – 6pm
Thurs: 8am – 4pm
Fri: 10am – 6pm
Sat: 10am – 2pm
Sun: Closed

The first medical cannabis crops have been harvested, however the state of Illinois is still working through the final steps of bringing the program online including third-party testing of the medicine. The state has made it known that once it has completed its processes it will announce a state-wide start date, and has projected that this date will be in the next couple of weeks.

Though these delays have been unfortunate we hope that a few growing pains at the start of the medical cannabis program will mean fewer unexpected problems in the future. We are in the home stretch now, and cannot wait to serve you.

Medical Cannabis Availability Update


Salveo Health & Wellness will NOT have medicine available on Monday, November 2nd. We are ready to open, and growers have medicine available to ship, but the state is not ready to give them the go-ahead. It appears, based on the following post from the Illinois Department of Public Health, that the state will let everyone know a date by which dispensaries will be able to start serving patients.

Sorry for the delay, but it is 100% out of our control. We will continue to update this website and our Facebook page with additional information. As always, feel free to call us at 309-647-9333.

Please be advised that the State of Illinois will soon announce a state-wide start date for sales of medical cannabis at registered dispensaries. At this time, the Department of Public Health requests that qualifying patients and caregivers DO NOT CALL for information about when dispensaries will begin sales. An announcement will be posted on the website for the Illinois Medical Cannabis Pilot Program as well as the website for the Department of Public Health

Here are a few of your options when it comes to consuming medical cannabis.

Intro to Cannabinoids and the Entourage Effect


We touched on the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in a previous post. The ECS is the recently discovered system in our body that helps keep our other systems in a state of balance. Cannabinoids are chemicals in the cannabis plant that interact with this system. Though research on the endocannabinoid system is still in its early stages, several of the chemicals in the cannabis plant have been isolated and work is being done to discover the ways they affect the human body.

Science hasn’t yet unlocked all of the secrets in cannabis, but here is a short list of things we do know about the active chemicals that make it a promising medicinal treatment.
