As cannabis legalization expands amid widespread public support, so does the High Times Live & Legal Cannabis Experience Tour. Following the successful Cannabis Cup in New England, High Times is proud to announce several additions to the tour, including a return to two all-time fan favorites: Amsterdam and Jamaica.

First up, from November 19 through November 22, the tour will stop in Amsterdam, the European capital of legalized cannabis, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Cannabis Cup Crawl, where participants can go from cafe to cafe to sample and choose the world’s best strains and products. Making this event more special: any attendee has the opportunity to judge the competitors.

And March 1 through March 4, 2018, Live & Legal goes to Grizzlys Cove Plantation in Jamaica for a long weekend of music, competitions, exhibitions, demos and more, with a full festival site and campsite for those wanting an al fresco experience with their Cup adventures.

“Amsterdam and Jamaica are iconic locations in the history of legalized cannabis consumption, and we’re so happy to return to both with the Cannabis Cup Live & Legal Tour,” said Adam Levin, chief executive officer of High Times. “These are special places, and we’re doing everything to ensure those who join us at these destinations will have truly special experiences they’ll remember forever.”

High Times also returns to Southern California with the first Harvest Cup, to be held at the National Orange Show in San Bernardino on November 11 and November 12. The Harvest Cup is an extension of the Cannabis Cup brand and will focus on celebrating the season’s harvest of green. It is the second High Times event this year at the fairgrounds there.

The Harvest Cup will feature High Times’ biggest musical roster yet, with performances by top stars such as Flo Rida, Yo Gotti, Ty Dolla $ign, Lil’ Dicky, DMX and Wyclef Jean. It will also offer many much-loved High Times activities, such as a competition for cannabis-infused edibles, a topical massage spa, a vape lounge, a live-art experience and a non-alcoholic infused canna-beer garden.

The Cannabis Cup is the first and highest honor for creators of cannabis products, featuring independently lab-tested and judged products. Winners represent the best in California and the United States, Jamaica and Amsterdam.

Since 1987, High Times has hosted Cannabis Cups around the world with music, speakers, vendors and interactive cannabis “experiences.” Attendees come together as a community, with the opportunity to learn hands-on about cultivation, legalization and connoisseurship at the world’s premiere cannabis competition.
