Tickets for this year's Cup will go on sale at the end of December.
In 2015, HIGH TIMES will return to the Mile High City for our fifth event at the Denver Mart. Our first two events in Denver were Medical Cannabis Cups, restricted to medical patients only. But Colorado voters legalized adult, recreational use of marijuana in the 2012 election, which resulted in our most successful Cannabis Cup ever. We now host the US Cannabis Cup, an event open to all adults.
Be sure to take part in this year's Cannabis Freedom Trail! Visit participating pot shops, sample the strain they have entered, then vote on Sunday for your fave. The shop with the most votes will be awarded the People's Cup.
Please note that only those 18 and over with ID may attend the event, 21 and over with ID to enter the smoking area. Those 18 and over with a Colorado medical card will also be able to enter the smoking area.
Doors open at 11AM Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
What is a Cannabis Cup?
It's a two-day trade show/EXPO incorporating vendor booths in a main building with an extended outdoor component for additional vendor booths.
This year's event will include the Cannabis Freedom Trail. Event attendees are invited to visit and sample products from Denver's participating pot shops. Choose the best and vote for them on Sunday. The shop with the most votes wins the People's Cup.
Inside booths range from glassware and clothing to grow equipment and artwork. Expect three seminars per day either in a sectioned off area off the main floor or in a private theater-like setting. The seminar topics include legalization regulations featuring Denver experts, current political issues, grow seminars with HIGH TIMES editors and a cooking seminar from our own Cannabis Cookbook author.
The outdoor component is typically a fenced off area with privacy screening, not visible to the general public. Visitors are wrist banded for entry. Security is posted to assure these regulations are followed.
No selling or distributing of cannabis is allowed.
