The NorCal Cannabis Cup will highlight the versatility of marijuana. Even if you choose not to smoke or vape, you can still benefit from our favorite herb’s healing properties. Get relaxed at our topical massage spa and chow down with curated edible cuisine pairings in our Edibles Village. Looking to learn? Attend kitchen demos with HIGH TIMES’ edibles editor Elise McDonough and see the pros in action during our "Taste of Cannabis" Chef Competition, in which we challenge top cannabis chefs to create their best dishes in a fast-paced, head-to-head battle to determine whose flavors are the freshest and whose techniques are the most refined and innovative.

With huge wins across the country for marijuana during the 2016 election, the 2017 US Cannabis Cup NorCal will host the HIGH TIMES Legalization Celebration Pavilion. Here, you’ll find a rally stage for activists (there's still much more work to be done!), panels on legal and veterans issues, non-profit exhibitors and the opportunity to hear from government representatives. Learn everything you need to know about the new marijuana business markets popping up around the country, and join us for our job fairs each day.

Shatter, wax, oil, crumble, sap, budder—concentrates. Call them what you want (consistency aside), dabbing is one of our favorite ways to get high, and we want to spread that love. The US Cannabis Cup will feature rosin press demonstrations, a dab rig exposition and even glass blowing! Not to mention, 710-inspired panels and seminars will offer grow tips for extract artists, touching on all types of concentrates.
