Cannabis Cup and its history

You have already read of the Cannabis Cup 2020, a big marijuana gathering in the country. The Cannabis Cup presents coveted prizes and is a perfect event to showcase the best in the industry.

The Cannabis Cup was created by Steven Hager in 1988, also known as the Cannabis Cup in the “High Times.” The Cup has been developed to demonstrate cannabis farmers and growers their products. It offers them all the ability to contend for rank and titles.

Any phase in the development and use of cannabis has been honored by the Cannabis Cup from the outset. Plants, end goods, and accessories are tested. During the expo, you can see a variety of marijuana-related items as well as many corporations that have a certain effect on cannabis.

Manufacturers and growers must apply their goods for independent review to compete in the Cannabis Cup. This tests both their THC and CBD ability.

It also offers informative workshops in addition to introducing cannabis and cannabis-related items. These lectures and courses are suitable for disseminating cannabis awareness to the public. Themes vary from usage to history to development.

Without judging, no contest is complete and the Weed Cup tests over various categories. A professional judge jury from different locations around the world is gathering for the event organizers. This variety removes prejudice and gives many insights during the selection process.


The best sativa, best indica, best hybrid, best foreign hash, best nederhash, best hash, best new stuff, the best glass, and the best booth are some of the most famous categories of the Cannabis Cup. There are a variety of categories in which voters, including the best bottle, best stand, and best goods, vote on the winner.

Historical location

In Amsterdam, known for its tolerance to cannabis, the first Cannabis Cup took place. In the years, almost all the annual Cannabis Cups have taken place in Amsterdam. After 27 years of hosting the Weed Cup, several considerations decided to move sites. Those issues included speculation over the future of the regulations on cannabis in the country and a safer climate for cannabis in other parts of the world.

As weed is permitted, other cities have already begun to hold the Cannabis Cup variant. Many of these occurrences center on medicinal cannabis rather than recreational cannabis.

With this intention, Cannabis Cups in Southern and Northern California, Jamaica, Vegas, Colorado, Rhode Island, Portland, and the United States, are only a couple of the latest ones you can see. Midwestern. Midwest.

Across Sites Location

In the United States, the first Cannabis Cup was held in 2010. The Medical Cannabis Cup “High Times” is intended to honor legal marijuana states. It provides the activities and items planned, but medical marijuana is the main focus.

Correspondingly, the U.S Cannabis Cup is designed for nations that are promoting marijuana recreation. The activities in the key cannabis cup are very close to those in Amsterdam. In other words, after test strains, judges show awards for different categories and members vote for those categories.

The Movie

With the aid of DVDs created to record activities, you can taste the Cannabis Cup without attending. After the 2003 festival, producers made the ‘Cannabis Cup,’ a film from last year’s event, which celebrated the twentieth anniversary of the event, during the Summer of 2008. Redman and Tommy Chong hosted this particular Cannabis Cup.

The Cannabis Cup Police Raid in Amsterdam 2010

For the first time in 2010, police searched the Amsterdam Cannabis Cup venue. This event was not well finished and has helped to change the position of the Cannabis Cup since 2014.

The raid was unbelievably controversial, followed in the Netherlands by Conservatives that year. Any of the country’s coffee shops, known for their hemp in addition to coffee, were already closed by these conservatives.

The most information about the raid was collected from tweets at the time of the incident. The police informed the authority that they saw pot booths that were counter to laws. On that basis, they shut down the event and left everyone but the exhibitors.

One of the High Times lawyers issued a letter after the drama. The issue has become a permission misunderstanding, according to David Holland. Nobody was arrested and the participants were never at risk of any such damage or detention. The police only guaranteed, according to him, that no seller can offer more weed than permissible. The Opium Act provided on all manufacturers to be below a cap of 500 grams at the site and only one barely was over.

Given this points, the Police, Weed Cup organizers, and dealers all worked friendly the following day. However, the intervention of the police brought the case to the attention of the stigma and derogatory coverage.
