LOGAN SQUARE — Logan Square's medical marijuana dispensary is hosting a launch party for a locally made cannabis chocolate bar this week.
Made with coffee from Dark Matter and cannabis from local medical marijuana cultivator Nature's Grace and Wellness, the "Supernova Bar" will be available for purchase from 6-9 p.m. Thursday at Modern Cannabis, 2847 W. Fullerton Ave., for registered patients only.
The first 20 RSVPs will get a free "canna-coffee-chocolate bar."
The public launch party will be held next door at Emporium Logan Square, 2363 N. Milwaukee Ave., which shares owners with Modern Cannabis.
"It is awesome to see producers in the cannabis industry come together with other established local producers," Danny Marks, owner of Modern Cannabis and Emporium, wrote in an email.
"It brings excitement, awareness and even some degree of legitimacy to the medical cannabis industry. The real winners are medical cannabis patients that get to have fun as they find relief for very serious illnesses."
Modern Cannabis is a project partner, but is not producing the bars. The dispensary opened in Logan Square in February of 2016.
