The High Times Cannabis Cup Description

The world’s preeminent...something something...WHO HAS CHIPS?

Founded by the same guys behind that famed periodical du pot, High Times, the High Times Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam is the Academy Awards of Aunt Mary, the Grammy’s of Giggle Smoke, and the World Series of Skunk all rolled (pun intended) into one.

First debuting in 1987 and normally scheduled during the third week of November, the Cannabis Cup usually lasts for five days, giving a panel of international judges lots of time to sample and vote for their favorite varieties.

Judges also vote on the best new product, best booth, best glass, best hash, and more, thank to the marijuana expo that is the central event of the Cannabis Cup, and which features dozens of independent growers and pot paraphernalia-makers selling their latest wares.

The Cannabis Cup is a major tourist event in Amsterdam, with many people coming to the city just to take part in this epic gala of ganja. The location of the Cannabis Cup usually isn’t announced until shortly before the event, but the expo has often taken place at the Borchland sports center.

Anyone can be a judge at the Cannabis Cup, they simply need to pay the extra ticket fee for the privilege of being able to cast a vote. And though most of the booths require attendees to pay for the goods, many growers offer free samples during Cannabis Cup as well.

Tickets to Cannabis Cub are usually about €50 at the door. Judges tickets are around €250, and include admission to the expo, all ceremonies and seminars, various local live music concerts, an event t-shirt and program guide, free bus tours to and from the expo, and, of course, the right to vote.

Previous Cannabis Cup concerts have hosted performers such as Freeway, Reef the Lost Cauze, Chief Kamachi, L.I.F.E. Long, Maylay Sparks, DJ Connect, B.O.B., and Dilated Peoples. The Cannabis Cup concert location is also usually kept under wraps until just a few weeks before the event, but has often been hosted at the famed Melkweg concert hall in years past.

Since 1997, the Cannabis Cup has also inducted members into its Hall of Fame. Previous inductees include Bob Marley, Louis Armstrong, William S. Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, Bob Dylan, Jack Herer, Tommy Chong, Cheech Marin, Peter Tosh, Tom Forcade, and Coke La Rock.
