Delta 8 in Aurora, IL?

We've got some big news this week for Aurora, Illinois- and it's not good.

Smoke & vape shops all around Aurora can no longer legally sell Delta 8 along with any other type of hemp derived THC. This is because a new Aurora ordinance has passed, banning these products. This news has taken us by surprise as a reputable seller because we sell only 100% lab tested, internally regulated hemp products, which are federally legal due to the 2018 Farm Bill.

"Where can I get these now?"

If you've been shopping at our Aurora store for Delta 8, THCA, HHC, and other THC products, you don't have to worry too much! Our Oswego location will remain stocked with all your favorites and the same great deals. Also, because Oswego is still allowing these products we can still ship through our website! 

This is obviously still a pretty big setback for all of our current and future Aurora smoke shops, but it's not the end of the world! We still have everything else you need to continue your smoking journey: from rolling papers to vaporizers.

Why is this such a big deal?

Hemp derived THC is actually a fantastic alternative to dispensary weed for so many reasons- the two biggest reasons being cost and 'customization'.

Everyone who has been to a dispensary knows that THC isn't cheap. A Delta 9 cartridge can run over $60 sometimes! But a hemp derived THC cartridge like this one from Urb is over 60% cheaper. That's huge, especially for those who smoke more regularly.

Also, you really have a choice of effects with different isolated hemp derived cannabinoids to customize and curate your smoking session. For those with lower tolerances or who don't want as much of a psychoactive high, an HHC flower is perfect and you don't have to hunt for super low potency flower at the dispensary. Or for someone with a higher tolerance, THCA disposables are an amazing way to achieve that potent high.

We know this decision likely won't change, but visit us in Oswego or right here on the website so you don't miss everything hemp THC has to offer! And remember to only purchase products like these from trusted and verified sources who openly communicate lab testing results.

Feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns about this.
