Dates Set for NuMed Urbana Dispensary Opening, Public Preview

Area residents, leaders to get first look at clinically-focused medical cannabis dispensary this week

Wheaton, IL –   NuMed CEO Bob Fitzsimmons today announced the company’s NuMed Urbana medical cannabis dispensary will soon be open to qualified patients and will be hosting a series of public preview events this coming week.
NuMed Urbana, located at 105 East University Avenue, will host a series of public previews for area residents and community leaders before officially opening its doors to qualified Illinois patients. The general public is invited to learn more about NuMed’s product offerings and medically-centered approach at two separate preview events at the NuMed Urbana location. This is an exclusive, one-time only preview of NuMed Urbana.  Per state regulations, upon opening for business, only registered patients, caregivers, and state-credentialed employees are allowed inside the dispensing area of the facility.
The preview dates and times are as follows:
  • Wednesday October 19: 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. Patients, Families and the General Public
  • Thursday, October 20: 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. Patients, Families and the General Public

For qualified Illinois patients, the grand opening and first opportunity to purchase medical cannabis products at NuMed Urbana will be Saturday, October 22 at 11:00 a.m.

“We are excited to showcase NuMed’s product offerings to patients in the Champaign/Urbana market,” said Brett Walrod, NuMed’s chief operating officer. “The maturing of the Illinois medical cannabis program, combined with growing acceptance of the medical efficacy of cannabis products and therapies, makes this an exciting time for us to be opening our doors to patients who have been waiting for our clinically-focused approach.”

NuMed Urbana will serve area patients in its over 5,000 square foot building, indicated Jayme Brewer, who will serve as NuMed’s Agent-in-Charge of the Urbana dispensary. “Our location provides the opportunity to provide relief to thousands of patients in the Champaign/Urbana area and surrounding counties. Working with top Illinois growers, access to pharmaceutical grade medication will be sourced in partnership with the highest-quality medical cannabis producers our state has to offer.”

Brewer encouraged qualified patients and interested parties to visit NuMed’s website at or call 217.607.2805 to learn how to either transfer (for existing patients) to the NuMed Urbana dispensary or obtain a medical cannabis card (new patients).
