Knowledge is Power

We have reviewed 100's of varieties of flower, many concentrates & a variety of cannabis products within the Illinois cannabis systems, both medical & recreational.

We present these reviews for you, to indicate the best and help you to save the money we've lost on the lackluster. Trust us, not all Illinois cannabis is created (or grown to be more accurate) equally. 

We are here to provide an unbiased look at the market from the consumers point of view, becuase we are you. We are appearently also the Consumer Reports of Illiois cannabis. Seriously? We are very serious! But to be honest, yes, we actually do take this very seriously because this stuff is expensive. It's expensive and there is no returning it. That means you buy, try, hate and have no recourse. So we ae here to dig through the clutter and provide clearity.

Illbuds.com started as a personal tracking list created by an illinois medical cannabis patient. The reason for starting the list was to focus on noting the good and the bad to avoid rebuying any subpar cannabis, which proved hard at times. This is becuase there is no way to engage wtih the product prior to purchase & there is little to no review information on the exact products availble in illinois. 

Until now...

Welcome to ILLBUDS.COM

Our Promise to You

We are influenced by only our own five senses... No one can buy a review or request one. We are fully independent & only review what we want to try. This means our words are our own and can not be bought.

So why, what's it all about? We just want to see the things we wanted to find in the world...

There was nothing like this, so we made it.




Only Clean Glass!

To be critical, it is of the upmost importance to start in the right place. In reviewing cannabis, this is our clean white sheet of paper..

So if not literally using paper (rolling a joint), the best option for critically profiling cannabis is a clean glass piece. Cooling the smoke helps to focus on the aroma and taste & as such, a clean glass bong is a great analyzer of a given strain's flavor profile.



Only Real Buds!

Get it. Got it, but is it actually Good? If it's overly dry, we will tell you. If it's not ready, we won't lie.. If it's perfect, we will give it a HIGH FIVE!!!



Only Fresh Thoughts!

The second that experimental smoke hits and gets in to the stream, the feeling is transcribed like a medium channeling ghosts of cannabis past!! Only these are direct & cut to the issue at hand: is it good, should it be bought? We know your time and money are distinctive and don't bother with the useless, so we are here to help it focus like a laser to where it is best used..








The active component of the marijuana plant, cannabinoids, have shown to inhibit tumor growth and kill cancer cells in lab testings. We work with a number of patients who use cannabis to treat their cancer and suppress it's side effects.



Medical marijuana contains antispasmodic qualities which relax muscles and has shown to be an effective treatment for seizures. Marijuana oils that are rich in cannabidol (CBD), are the preferred method for treatment. 


Chronic Pain

Patients who suffer from chronic pain caused by diabetes, cancer, MS, HIV, and other diseases have been turning to medical marijuana as a way to treat their pain without the use of addictive pharmaceutical medications.
