With cannabis now legalized in Illinois for adult use, Springfield residents have a number of dispensaries to choose from. Ascend's Horizon Drive location has stood out from others for Illinois Times voters in a market that's both very new and already robust.
"We are very invested in Springfield's community of patients and consumers, and we're thrilled to see the positive impact we've had over this past year since we opened our first Springfield location," said Chris Melillo, Ascend's chief revenue officer. "We are especially proud of our robust selection of brands curated to appeal to a spectrum of patient and consumer preferences."
Melillo said Ascend's partnership with its West Coast brands have given Ascend's Horizon Drive location and Springfield-area consumers access to some of the nation's most popular products. He said the dispensary will be looking to expand its Ozone brand cannabis offerings in particular in the near future.
"It is a privilege to operate in such a dynamic and promising market and to see how our neighbors in Springfield share our sentiment," Melillo said.
With well-appointed facilities, friendly staff, a good selection of products for those purchasing cannabis recreationally and a convenient location near other east side retailers, it's no surprise Ascend's Horizon Drive location was recognized by our readers.
