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.

Inside booths range from glassware and clothing to grow equipment and artwork. Inside also features 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 Northwest experts, current political issues, grow seminars with HIGH TIMES editors as well as 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. Medicating (smoking) is allowed in this area for those with a valid medical card and a picture ID (for medical states). Visitors are wrist banded for entry. Security is posted to assure these regulations are followed.

No selling or distributing of cannabis is allowed.

There is Saturday night entertainment typically starting @ 8PM and lasting till @ 11PM.
Either at the venue or in another venue if room does not allow.

The entire event is protected by outside hired security. Every security company we're hired for these events has stated that we have the most polite and respectful attendees of any events they work (including sporting events, concerts etc.).

This event is a celebratory and informational gathering for vendors and patients.

In 2014, HIGH TIMES returns to the Emerald City for its third Cup event. As in Colorado, Washington voters passed adult, recreational use laws in the November 2012 election. This enabled the event to become our second U.S. Cannabis Cup where adults can experience the best Washington cannabis products freely.

FAQ

Are Cannabis Cup passes refundable?
No - But passes are transferable and may be resold to someone else if you are unable to attend.

How can my Seattle-based medical cannabis dispensary compete in the Medical Cannabis Cup?
Entry into the HIGH TIMES Medical Cannabis Cup is limited to legally operating, licensed medical cannabis dispensaries in the state of Washington. For more information on entering an indica, a sativa, cannabis concentrates or medical-cannabis infused edibles, please contact us directly at (212) 387-0500 or by email medcancup@hightimes.com

Do I get any cannabis as part of my ticket price?
Due to Colorado law we cannot give away cannabis, which is why we’ve kept the ticket price as low as possible while still putting on a world-class event.
