THC Sando, Very Popular Illinois Chicken Sandwich is More Than You Think
Sando, that's a pretty strange name for a sandwich. Pretty sure you've never heard of a sandwich with THC before either, until now.
The hero, hoagie, a submarine sandwich, open-faced, pocket sandwich, finger, ice cream sandwiches. The club, the Cuban, and the monte cristo. Don't forget the dagwood, the Denver, and the Elvis, too.
Some of those sandwich names may sound familiar to you, and some may not.
It's a pretty safe bet that you've never heard of the sandwich that's getting all kinds of buzz in Chicago and it sounds delicious, but the big question that many ask when they first hear its name is,
Will eating this sandwich get me high?
The answer is,
You absolutely will feel a certain way after eating this sandwich but you won't be getting high. The THC in this popular Chicago sandwich is not tetrahydrocannabinol (the main psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. The sandwich's THC is the main ingredient, tandoori honey fried chicken.

We call it new-wave South Asian cuisine.
