The High Times Cannabis Cup SoCal 2024 is aimed to identify and award the best cannabis products in all of California, all across a wide range of different categories, all to be judged by the great people of California.

This event will be the first-ever competition that is open to the California public and will see the largest pool of judges in history. This is a sampling dream to get your products into the hands of hundreds of new customers who will provide feedback on your entries, plus thousands of impressions.

Judge kits will be available across High Times SoCal retail locations. Judges who get a kit will be sampling and reviewing a wide variety of products to help crown the best of SoCal. May the best products win.
