We accept cash, and debit cards for cashless ATM transactions. We do not accept credit cards.

Cashless ATM transactions require a $3.50 transaction fee. We have ATMs inside both dispensaries; the fee is $3.25. 

Your bank may charge additional fees for ATM and cashless ATM transactions; please consult with your financial institution for details.

We recently implemented improvements to our system including appointment-only order pickups to reduce waits and manage flow. If you arrive at the same time as others, feel free to hang across the street, in your vehicle or at another safe distance until you feel comfortable entering.

Due to supply shortages, product selection may be limited for recreational customers. While our recreational selection and product limits have expanded from the first days of legalization, Illinois cultivators are still scaling their operations to meet demand. It will take time for a program that’s less than a year old to catch up to states where recreational cannabis has been legal for years. We are doing our best to accommodate everyone for recreational while maintaining our medical supply. Get a medical card for more purchase options.

We have to cap the number of customers that come through the dispensary each day, especially during the pandemic. Once we’ve accepted the maximum number of orders we can reasonably fulfill, online ordering will be paused. If you’re unable to place an order, just try again later.

Items on the menu have their prices listed without tax included. On the checkout page, you’ll see an estimate of the total amount you’ll be asked to pay so you can plan your visit. The total (with tax) we provide is an estimate and is subject to change. Different products are taxed by the state at different rates, and final price calculation is done at the point of sale. Medical patients pay lower taxes than recreational customers. In order to make a medical purchase, you will need to present a valid medical cannabis card and designate your dispensary as MOCA Logan Square. Get a card to save on taxes. We do our best to make everything as affordable possible, but we are an independent company subject to the wholesale pricing of our suppliers. Get a medical card to save money by paying lower taxes.

We admit one person at a time. Each individual must have their own appointment. Please leave family and friends at home.

We accept all unexpired identification including passport & matricula. An Illinois ID is only required to purchase up to in-state limits. 

Every patient is affected differently by various strains and methods of consumption. Potency also varies from strain to strain and product to product. We recommend all patients start with smaller doses to test their effects and then to adjust with experience.

We have found this dosage calculator to be very helpful in explaining percentages and doing some of the math for you.

No one may consume cannabis at or around the dispensary.

No, recreational cannabis may only be consumed in private residences.

There will not be product discounts for recreational cannabis. We recommend veterans get a medical card to enjoy a 10% discount.
Offers and rewards points can be applied to preorder and walk-in transactions. If you place a preorder, your discount will not be reflected in the estimated total you see online.

When checking out, just let your budtender know about the discount before you pay. They’ll apply your discount and provide you with a new, discounted total.

No weapons are allowed inside of MOCA. You will be turned away if you are carrying anything we believe could hurt our staff or other customers/patients (guns, knives, tasers, pepper spray, etc). If you want to ensure you will get inside, please do not bring any weapons with you.

All visitors are required to wear masks or other face coverings, and have access to hand sanitizer and a sink. We encourage all patients in high-risk groups to contact us for help setting up a caregiver to eliminate the need to come into the dispensary entirely.

THCA is the chemical precursor to THC. Many cannabis products, like flower or concentrate, contain high levels of THCA. A small amount of the THCA naturally present in cannabis converts to THC during the curing and drying process.

When you apply heat to the product, usually by smoking, dabbing, or vaping it, the THCA is converted to THC.

Since THCA and THC have a different molecular weight, THCA percentage by weight does not exactly match THC percentage by weight. To find the total THC in your product, use this equation.

(THCA % Listed on Product) x 0.877 + (THC % Listed on Product) = Total THC % in Product

Read more about THC and THCA on our blog.

Regulations for home growing only apply to medical patients; it’s not legal for recreational customers to home grow. At this time, growing products like seeds are not yet available to patients in Illinois. If you want to be ready when this changes, become a medical patient.

There is no reason that purchasing recreational cannabis would have ay effect on FOID card eligibility because we do not track any personal information. However, we aren’t in a position to give legal advice on this matter. FOID cards are federally issued and held to federal law, and cannabis is still illegal under federal law. We can sell to anyone 21+ with an ID and we do not track the personal information of those who make recreational purchases.

This is well outside of our control but the short answer is yes it can. State legalization is not federal legalization, and employers who require drug testing may not care about IL state law. You should check with the employer or other entity to make sure you are ok to use cannabis without affecting these areas.

We have Spanish speaking staff available on most days of the week. This site can be translated into many different languages for easier browsing.
