What is the Colorado Cannabis Cup?

The Colorado Cannabis Cup is an annual competition that shines a spotlight on the best cannabis products in Colorado.

Cannabis Cup History

The Cannabis Cup is actually held in various states and countries where recreational marijuana is legal and/or where medical marijuana is legalized. The Cannabis Cup was actually founded in Amsterdam in 1988 by former High Times editor Steve Hager.

Cannabis Cup Judges

Of course, to judge the best cannabis, you need people who are cannabis connoisseurs. Some of the most notable Cannabis Cup judges include:

  • Tommy Chong,
  • Snoop Dogg,
  • Patti Smith,
  • Wiz Khalifa,
  • Joe Rogan,
  • Damian Marley,
  • Kid Cudi,
  • Method Man,
  • Redman,
  • Rita Marley,
  • B-Real,
  • B.O.B.,
  • Alex Grey,
  • The Brotherhood of Eternal Love,
  • and countless other iconic cannabis lovers

People's Choice: Cannabis Cup

As we're all aware, when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, many things changed. One exciting change was the addition of the "People's Choice" to the Cannabis Cup. Typically 28-35 expert judges alone would determine the rankings of the Cannabis Cup, but in 2020 the judging was opened to the public.

228 kits per category were released to the public for their local competition allowing everyday cannabis lovers to have their opinion counted. All People's Choice kits are sold on a first-come-first-serve basis upon the on-sale of kits for each state. This year's competition in Colorado has passed, but now that you're aware, you could potentially be a judge in 2023.
