The Winter Haze Story

Winter Haze is a chill nod to our home state of Illinois, and the gateway to Peoria from I-74. No matter the season—warm or cold—every time you come to the bridge, there’s always a mist. Haze echoes cannabis smoke and tradition. The highly revered strain dates all the way back to the groovy scene in 1960s Santa Cruz, California. Haze is the foundation of many of the most potent hybrid strains available today.

Our headquarters is in the heart of the Peoria warehouse district, and we have big plans for the future. We’re inviting new and seasoned cannabis users to be prepared to experience Winter Haze premium products, crafted with heightened moments of purposeful action and self-care in mind. Choose the degree to suit your vibe. Soothing comfort and relaxation, shared moments or enhanced creativity, Winter Haze is always in season.

Our Founders

We (Tyler and Winston) were both trying to get into the cannabis game, only to find there was little chance of gaining licensing in Illinois as individuals unless we had big money or a big name to go with it. We were ready to call it quits and try our luck in other states. A chance conversation led to a friend saying—‘hey, I know a guy’. That first phone call led to a first meeting a couple of days later. The more we talked, the more we found in common and suddenly, we were in business together. The lesson? Get people talking. They’ll find they have more in common, too. Winter Haze cannabis products are the catalyst for conversations, communion, and community.
