Compete in the HIGH TIMES Cannabis Cup

The HIGH TIMES Cannabis Cup is the world’s premier cannabis competition. Founded in Amsterdam in 1988, the HIGH TIMES Cup has been the leader and trend-setter for all competitions for more than 28 years. In 2010, HIGH TIMES began holding Medical Cannabis Cup events in U.S. cities as well, including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Denver and Detroit. And, most recently, we held out first-ever Jamaican Cannabis Cup in Negril at the end of 2016. In 2017, we aim to add Las Vegas, Portland, Toronto and Barcelona to our ever-growing roster of Cup cities.

Also in 2017, we will reformat our competition, making every city a “Regional Competition” that will culminate at year’s end with the “World Championship Cannabis Cup.” The WCCC will be held in a destination location such as Jamaica or Amsterdam, and all companies placing in the Top-10 of each category in their regional competition will qualify for entry into the HIGH TIMES World Championship Cannabis Cup. 

Competition categories now include:

  • Flowers (Sativa, Indica, Hybrid)
  • Concentrates (Sativa, Indica, Hybrid)
  • CBD (Flowers, Concentrates, Edibles)
  • Non-Solvent Hash
  • Edibles
  • Topicals
  • Vape Pen Cartridges
  • Medically Infused Products (MIPs—includes Moon Rocks, Caviars, etc.)

The next Cannabis Cup will be held at the San Bernardino NOS Center, October 8-9.

The competitions will be held for this event from September 26 - October 7.

Entry Intake will be held September 26-27 in the Los Angeles area (exact location to be given upon registration).
