High Times‘ Southern California Medical Cannabis Cup was held this January in San Bernadino. Focusing on the medical attributes of cannabis, prizes are awarded based on scientific and peer review. Entries are tested for potency (THC levels), medicinal properties (CBD levels) and contaminants. Entries are then reviewed by a panel of judges to decide a winner.
The Emerald Cup is held in Sonoma, California and is the one of the larger organic, outdoor, medicinal cannabis competitions in the world. The event brings together experts and educators in the cannabis field as well as farmers, patients, and patrons with the intent of advancing the concept of sustainable, outdoor farming.

Our sole objective has always been to improve the lives of patients by providing them with the highest quality products. Our success has come, in large part, thanks to our outstanding partners like Blue River and Bubbleman, whose knowledge and technologies make it possible for us to deliver on that vision. Our relationship with Harborside enables us to see the benefits our combined efforts bring to patients on a day-to-day basis, but it is also gratifying to receive this recognition from our peers in the industry.”
