Cloud9 Cannabis, the newest dispensary in Champaign-Urbana, will open next week off North Prospect by the new Fernando’s restaurant. Joining nuEra Champaign, nuEra Urbana, and Sunnyside, Cloud9 Cannabis will sell a variety of cannabis products like flower, pre-rolls, edibles, and more.

Adults 21 years of age or older can shop at the Champaign store, which will be C-U’s fourth dispensary but Cloud9’s first location to open in Illinois. Cloud9 has a staff of what they call cannasseurs who can help individuals find the right product with a hands-on shopping experience.

Inside the store, there are jars featuring five terpenes. Each one has a distinct aroma plus a description of which cannabis strains are associated with it. Shoppers can lift the cork, waft the aroma, and smell the different terpenes.

Similarly, shoppers can smell different flower options with these little boxes.

While the store encourages just walking in and browsing the store, pre-order will be available as well. The new dispensary plans to open late next week. If you’re curious about cannabis products in C-U, read our lists of recommendations here, here, here, and here.
