What does PDI stand for?

PDI stands for Professional Dispensaries of Illinois. Our owners and staff are professional pharmacists or certified pharmacist technicians. Our top priority is helping our patients find the most appropriate and safest solutions for their medical conditions, whether they are seeking relief from pain, nausea, or other medical symptoms. We work one-on-one with patients to ensure the safety and efficacy of their treatment.

Marijuana is the name given to the dried buds and leaves of varieties of the Cannabis sativa plant, which can grow wild in warm and tropical climates throughout the world and be cultivated commercially. It goes by many names, including pot, grass, cannabis, weed, hemp, hash, marihuana, ganja, and dozens of others.
