NORMAL — McLean County residents can say ‘hello’ to their first adult- use cannabis dispensary, called Beyond/Hello, which opens Monday.

The dispensary, owned by Jushi Holdings Inc. and formerly known as The Green Solution, 501 W. Northtown Road, will begin taking online and phone orders for curbside or in-store pickup starting Monday. Jushi Holdings purchased The Green Solution and other dispensaries in February. 

Members of the Central Illinois Cannabis Community have praised Normal’s decision to grant Jushi a license to sell cannabis for recreation. Until now, many people who buy cannabis for recreation in McLean County had to travel to Peoria or Champaign to do so.

Jushi is a global cannabis and hemp operator with retail, distribution, cultivation and processing operations. Normal City Council approved the company’s request for a special-use permit to expand into the sale of adult-use, recreational cannabis on Feb. 3.
