Go to The Herbal Care Center instead. They have much better customer service. The oafish security guard at Ascend River North got in my face for reaching for hand sanitizer. When I asked him why he did it, he said " I thought you were reaching for the masks". There was no reason to take it from 0-60, guy. I'm swearing off all Ascend locations because of this interaction alone. So much for personal space during a pandemic, and not to mention super aggressive on his part. He had a foot on me, about 60 lbs, and I'm not even a dude. Here's some advice: hire security guards who have a sliver of emotional intelligence and basic social skills. Thumbs down.read more

Man I used to love this place! On a first name basis, the prices were better. Then some guy there always would give me a hard time. Today will be the last day I go here. I think the company rocks, but this guy has many times insulted me and made me feel super uncomfortable. I spent lots of money here that I will not any further. Im sure I’m not the only one who has complained about this little man.read more

Awesome dispensary. Easy to walk in and order right from the tablets they have set up. The menus are easily understood and accessible. The prices are listed and are clear cut. No hidden fees or agendas. Staff was super helpful and friendly. Security was on site and they lock the doors that lead to the actual checkout so theft would be virtually impossible. I felt very safe during my visit and would absolutely visit again & recommend to friends! Prices were pretty high compared to what I'm used to paying but that was to be expected I suppose.read more

I gave MOCA a one star because I was helped by a wonderful women today, forgot her name. She really found a good product for me and my lifestyle. I asked if she directly received tips and she said no which was appalling to me as she gave me a direct service. I think its unfair and I can only imagine how much money the dispensary makes on the day to day, also it is a pandemic.read more

Edit 08.20.21:I appreciate the individual employees for doing their part to try and help.It appears though, yet again, the overlords who hide behind the shadows have made a decision in the interest in profit, and against the best interests of the customers.New loyalty program is dog dookie. It’s no longer worth it to come here instead of anywhere else, say, 3 blocks away with an orange awning.In addition, the selection over the last 3-4 weeks has been below average at best.Whomever is newly in charge needs to not be newly in charge.read more

Compared to Seattle, Chicago prices are sky high (pun intended). Be prepared to pay taxes on top of the advertised price. The line set up is also kinda weird. You pay and then wait for your name to be called to pick up your stuff. Odd, but the people who work there are cool.read more

Parking was very easy and attendant was friendly. Security guards are awesome and don't make you feel awkward, staff at all counters were above and beyond to be nice, and I loved the vibe of this dispensary compared to the waiting room feel of others. I love the 10% medical discount and appreciate that they offer it. Will definitely be backread more

They offer a veterans discount but don't allow you to use rewards point with it so what's the point? Last time I was there I specifically told the cashier to use the veterans discount & not my points because I was trying to save them up, but when I logged in later my awards points were gone. Also the prices on-line don't always match the price at the store. My last purchase online said it was $72 before taxes but they charged $80 before taxes.Edit: Wow thank you for reaching out & explaining that. I totally accept the apology.read more

Weird experience. Illinois is too regulated. The manager, although knowledgeable, would not honor the special from July 4th, even though he still had the sign up in the store. This place made you feel like you need national clearance to enter and purchase.read more

Excellent location for first time buyers. Super clean layout and top notch products. I really appreciated how they had informational sheets and pamphlets that were honest about canmabis use and even saying weed can affect each person differently and that it isnt for everyone. Highly recommendread more

Nothing great, but nothing bad. Their product rotation is a bit slow and they offer the least appealing specials/discounts of all Chicago dispensaries.Won’t be going back since one of their employees made a joke implying I couldn’t afford a purchase when I input the wrong PIN number at the register. Just no - that’s not appreciatedread more

The Best Dispensary in Chicago!! Great prices and the coolest staff! Their customer service is great and they are always willing to answer any questions. Very knowledgeable and friendly! Also if you have any kind of handicap issues great place to shop. They have an elevator someone to meet and greet you at the door. Over all experience was fantastic!read more

Friendly service but the staff, clean presentation, good control in crowd size and liked the fact we could also use other methods of payments. Online pick up wait time can vary for individuals, but all-in-all the process was smooth and efficient. Wish there was a wider selection. They show you the products you order when you show up.read more

This place is amazing. It is so safe and well-run. I was blown away by how smooth the process is. I pre-ordered and though I had to wait in line to get in, once I was inside, I was out of there very quickly. Everyone is so kind and helpful, and all the security makes you feel safe. Overall flawless experience here. You in-state folks don't know how lucky you are!read more

Honest non biased opinion: This dispensary is not bad but not good. I've been to dispensaries in Michigan and this one doesn't come close to those: Not in service, atmosphere, selection or price. I can't give this a 5 star for that reason. If you don't mind spending the extra buck.. this place ain't badread more

Great location and free parking. Been around 5 or 6 times and some during rush hour and still got lucky with parking. Sometimes the lines can be long but the service is professional and quick so it’s never really much of a wait but I recommend pre ordering to bypass all that. The flower is fire and the prices are fair (considering recreational is taxed and expensive most places in IL). All the staff are knowledgeable and friendly. So far this is my go to dispensaryread more

After being a loyal customer for months, I feel that overall they could care less about their customers. They just want your $. Ran into a tiny little problem, and cashier took upon herself to speak for the company. I promptly told her I will leave and go to sunny side for the first time. She said “ok, go”read more

Glad to have a location in the river north area. Just like everything else located here, prices are going to be at a premium- which makes sense. Walk ins are welcome but sometimes waiting could be up to 30 minutes.1/5 starUpdate after being a loyal customer for months:1. None of my previous Purchases will be given any “points” credit2. Came with a friend to purchase an item that was marked $60, cashier said it was a mistake and it was actually double that.3. I am an Illinois resident with an Indiana ID, I’ve purchased ounces regularly from them, and suddenly today they won’t sell me an ounce. I guess they weren’t following federal regulations until today.Really sad that they couldn’t accommodate me,After being a loyal customer for months- they could’ve sold me half the ounce. Instead, they just said “I’m sorry that’s regulations”. I’ll bring shopping at other dispensaries now.read more

Stay away from this place at all costs. I go in with a valid ID and they say it's not valid.. Haven't had an issue with any other dispensaries in Chicago.. Poorly trained staff stay away if you are coming from out of state. You would think one of the 10 security guards had half a brain to enter an out of state ID. Windy City is actually trained and have way better prices. Not impressed at all. STAY AWAYread more

Wow. It says a lot for me to even post a review. This is the first review I have even bothered to write. This place is the worst. If you want to be harassed and threatened by security guards, this is the place for you. If you dare ask the security guard if dogs are allowed be prepared for a fight. I won’t go into the details but in essence the security guard on duty, La Kesha, basically verbally attacked me. I, at times during her tirade, was in fear of her that she may actually get physical. If you want to be treated like a person go to Nu Era. Dog friendly, you won’t be frisked, harassed or threatened.read more

Happy that there is a locally owned dispensary close by, I ordered ahead and making my purchase was a breeze! Great options and variety, I think I'm making this my candy shop instead of Sunnyside 😁 everyone I encountered was pleasant, wide open space to abide by distancing.. A+++++++++++Another big plus for me is the packaging after your purchase..I got a simple small brown recyclable paper bag which is easy to stow away in my existing bag instead of a glossy, clunky and BRIGHT retail bag, which I was always stuck with even tho I tried to decline at the competitors(save the planet, people!)👍👍 Thanks for being responsible retailers!read more

Great experience! Super fast service, friendly staff, and best menu selection in Chicago. The prices are reasonable (...for legal cannabis in River North!) I like how they include the tax in their prices - it feels much more transparent than other spots I’ve been to. Highly recommend GMO or anything from Aeriz.read more

Definitely a place to stop by with friends when visiting the city. Probably not the place to buy an entire ounce of weed.read more
