Founded by Tim Blake in 2003 at Area 101, the Emerald Cup celebrates the passion of California’s best cultivators, breeders, artisan hash makers, edibles creators, and topicals makers. Now hosted at Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa and running Dec. 10-11, the Emerald Cup has grown from a few hundred people to ten thousand attendees. As a world-famous competition, the event pits California’s top growers head to head as experienced judges test the fruits of their labours.
Each valid entry will receive a full spectrum test (potency, microbiological, and pesticide) from SC LABS. Included is the Terpene testing (on all flower and concentrate entries) in recognition of the extremely important role terpenes play in how we interact and are drawn towards cannabis. Also included is the microbiological and pesticide testing for every entry to ensure judges don’t have to partake in any medicine that could possibly harm one’s health.
The event features a wide range of live music, speakers, workshops, pre-parties and more. Click here to find out more.
