LOVES PARK — A new
recreational marijuana dispensary held its grand opening in the City with a Heart on Tuesday.
The Happy Cannabis Company, 4120 N. Bell School Road, offers a selection of THC and CBD dispensary menu products that can be purchased in person or ordered online for pickup.
“We are an adult-use recreational dispensary,” said Happy Cannabis Company agent-in-charge Steve Olson. “We have a wide variety of products from
flower to pre-rolls (joints) to different types of edibles. Basically any form of cannabis you can consume, we pretty much carry it.”

The Happy Cannabis Company is owned and operated by Mapleglen Care Center, which opened a medical marijuana dispensary at 4777 Stenstrom Road in Rockford in 2015 and has since added recreational cannabis.
Sunnyside operates recreational marijuana dispensaries at 2696 McFarland Road in Rockford and at 7000 First Ranger Drive in South Beloit.
