On August 25th, the High Times Cannabis Cup is coming to Illinois for the first time ever!
Since 1988, the annual event has featured celebrity guests like Snoop Dogg, Tommy Chong, and Wiz Khalifa selecting the best cannabis products available on the market alongside music, joint-rolling competitions and more.
Breaking with tradition, adults over 21 will have a chance to sit in the judge’s seat this year for the inaugural People’s Choice Edition of the Cannabis Cup. Judges will evaluate cannabis products like flower, edibles, and concentrates from the comfort of their homes, and share their ratings through an online voting system.
MOCA – Modern Cannabis is the only Chicago dispensary where members of the public will have an opportunity to purchase Judges Kits. Each exclusive kit will include a collectable backpack, scorecard, and an assortment of products from Illinois cultivators in a designated category.
Judges Kit pickup at MOCA Logan Square begins 9:30am on Tuesday, August 25th. Prospective judges are encouraged to register online and sign up for MOCA’s email newsletter to receive updates. Due to limited supplies and high levels of anticipation from the state’s savvy cannabis connoisseurs, the kits — which will be sold first-come, first serve via walk-in — are expected to sell out quickly.
The kits will not be available for online ordering, and can’t be added to an online order — you must place a walk-in order in our waiting room at 2369 N Milwaukee Ave. Preregistration for the Cannabis Cup is not required and does not reserve a kit for you, though it will speed the process of checking out in the dispensary.
One kit per customer. Each kit will be taxed at the applicable recreational tax rate in compliance with local law. Check our Quick Tips and FAQ page for more information about buying cannabis from MOCA, or send us a message with any additional questions.
