The Adventures Of Walter & Tiffany: Chicago’s Greenhouse Dispensary

After enjoying the high-mountain views and low-key vibes of Colorado, we steered our motorhome east for a 1,000-mile road adventure to Tiffany’s favorite city: Chicago.

Arriving in Chicago via RV is a much more pleasant experience compared to landing at O’Hare, trust me! Interstate 80 isn’t a picnic, but it beats flying.

Tiffany had three must-dos in Chicago: Listen to the blues on Rush Street, eat a real Chicago hot dog and visit with her younger sister Crystal.

After a breezy stroll on Chicago’s glorious Lakefront Trail and Navy Pier, the three of us ventured north to Deerfield — Crystal’s neighborhood and home to Greenhouse, a medical cannabis dispensary. Crystal, a medical patient in Illinois, was looking for a topical lotion to help her relieve the pain of rheumatoid arthritis. It happens every change in the season, it seems.

Since Tiffany and I are not Illinois residents, we waited in the car while Crystal entered Greenhouse. After a 10-minute wait, Crystal returned to the car with a bag. She told all about Max Allison, her “patient care consultant at the counter:

“I could tell the second I approached the counter that I would get the proper help,” Crystal told us. “Max was so knowledgeable — he was educated in horticulture and really understood the medicinal benefits of cannabis.

Based on Max’s conversation, I purchased a methanol cayenne lotion. Max explained that heat from the capsaicin in the cayenne pepper stimulates blood flow. This combined with cannabis’ healing properties, will provide me with immediate pain relief.”

And Crystal’s pain stayed away the rest of our visit.  Frankly, we were both blown away by how effective this was.

We enjoyed the rest of our stay in Chicago. We enjoyed a local blues trio in an underground club. And we even ate the perfect Chicago hot dog!
