6th Emerald Cannabis Cup - A dozen judges graded 100 entries of outdoor bud and hash—tasting and testing over the course of several days—based on aroma, visual appeal, with double points for medicinal effects. Seven hundred people packed the Sixth Annual Emerald Cup Celebration and Bud Competition at Area 101 in Laytonville CA, in the heart of the Emerald Triangle.
By offering his land as a healing center and gathering spot for experienced medical growers to come together once a year, proprietor Tim Blake has resparked the tradition of the original Amsterdam Cup.
The highlight was a new travel video called “Cash Crop,” which takes a journey around California, asking questions and assessing the state of cannabis. The journey ends at Area 101 in Mendocino County and includes interviews from Sheriff Tom Allman offering to respect patients’ rights, as well as Dr William Courtney, his partner Kristen and her plain-spoken mother standing in support of her daughter’s health decision.
Delights of The Cup included all organic food, a photography contest, a how-many-roaches-in-a-bottle contest, merchandise, hours of music and Sunday morning breakfast.
