DELAVAN, Ill., Nov. 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — For the first time in history, high quality medical cannabis is legally available in Illinois. Revolution Cannabis-Delavan, a producer of superior quality medical cannabis, is proud to announce registered patients and caregivers can purchase its products at licensed Illinois dispensaries beginning Monday, November 9, 2015.
“Medical cannabis should be a safe, natural option to opiates and other dangerous, addictive pharmaceuticals,” said Tim McGraw, CEO and founder of Revolution Enterprises. “Illinoisans deserve the right to medical cannabis, and we work hard to make sure our products are pure and high quality.”
Revolution Cannabis-Delavan is the world’s most technologically advanced cannabis cultivation, laboratory, and processing facility. Quality and safety is assured through the use of independent laboratories which perform chemical analysis testing to certify that all medicines are free from pesticides and other impurities that plague black market cannabis. Independent laboratories also confirm the cannabinoid profile of all medicines to ensure labels contain precise active ingredient lists.
“I think more patients will be encouraged to join the Pilot Program now that medicine is finally available,” said McGraw. Presently 3300 patients are registered to purchase medical cannabis in Illinois.
“A lot of people have been holding out because this day hardly seemed possible, but now that it’s real, I expect many more people to start taking this seriously,” said McGraw. “I look forward to the day when even more patients are able register under Illinois law, including those coping with PTSD, autism, chronic pain, and other conditions approved by the government’s Medical Cannabis Advisory Board.”
Revolution Cannabis- Delavan is one of two cultivation centers managed by Revolution Enterprises in Central Illinois. Construction of the two facilities generated significant local economic development. More than 40 jobs have been created across the two facilities, and the number is poised to grow as Illinois’ patient count ramps up.
“Regulated medical cannabis improves quality of life, stimulates economic growth, and creates jobs,” said McGraw.
