Why Craft Cannabis

The Craft Cannabis sector in Illinois was created by the Adult Use Act in 2019 to:

Ensure Illinois consumers have choice and quality in cannabis products, which has not been fully served by traditional cannabis companies

Create a strong supply of craft cannabis cultivars, plants, and products backed by growers and infusers who take pride in creating artisanal products

Provide opportunities for equitable, independent and diverse business ownership in the Illinois market

To share wealth in the cannabis industry, ensuring the needs of discerning consumers are met by a class of creative craft innovators, growers, and infusers

Our Principles
