The Emerald Cup is California’s largest and longest-running cannabis competition. Often hailed as the “Academy Awards of Cannabis,” it draws thousands of cultivators and influential C-suite executives from across the state to celebrate the best of the industry.
Celebrities often make special appearances and its after parties have become legendary among industry professionals.
The Emerald Cup is an opportunity for small farmers, breeders, and cannabis creators to be recognized for exceptional work.
While cannabis seems to be edging toward commercialism more every day, the Emerald Cup brings the space back to its roots by focusing on the craft of the herb.
So how does one receive an invitation to this gathering of greatness? All competitors and judges receive two invitations to the Awards show.
The Emerald Cup Competition is now accepting applicants for 48 submission categories. Applicants have until March 3 to submit entries at one of six intake locations ranging from San Diego to Mendocino.
This year’s Awards show will take place at the bayfront Craneway Pavilion in Richmond, CA on Saturday, May 13. Entries close March 3, 2023 at 3 p.m. PST. Interested parties can learn more about how to apply through the Emerald Cup website.
