Within the Edibles Village at the HIGH TIMES Cannabis Cup, a heated competition is going down. Challenging 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.

Points will be awarded from 1 to 5 in each category, and the chef awarded the most points will proceed to the next round.

Chefs will compete one-on-one, preparing a cannabis-infused dish within a specified time limit. Chefs will randomly pick a Magical Mystery Box, including perfectly portioned ingredients from specific regional and international cuisine styles. Judges will sample competitors’ dishes, grade the results and select a winner from each round to advance to the next. After three rounds of intense head-to-head cooking, a champion will be crowned!

Many will enter, but only one will emerge victorious! The Champion Cannabis Chef will receive a HIGH TIMES plaque and a featured recipe on HIGHTIMES.com.

Adding to the live cannabis experience, attendees will receive an up-close look at culinary cannabis arts in action, complete with cooking demonstrations, Q & As with top cannabis chefs and edible samples.
