Until last year, Amsterdam had been home to the the only Cannabis Cup celebration every year since it was founded by Steven Hager in 1987. Now, however, with cannabis culture exploding in the US with the emergence of medical marijuana and the onset of decriminalizing marijuana use, medical marijuana capitals of United States have become a clear choices to host the annual Cannabis Cup celebration. Last years event in San Francisco California was the first year that the Cannabis Cup was held anywhere other than Amsterdam. Colorado's booming medical marijuana market has received a lot of attention in the past year and apparently enough attention to attract the World's most prestigious cannabis celebration to host it's second U.S. cannabis festival in Colorado.
This year the Colorado will host the 2nd US Cannabis Cup. The event will take place April 2nd and 3rd in Denver. Prizes will be awarded for best marijuana strain, best marijuana edible, best hash, best smoking accessories from legal MMJ dispensaries in Colorado.
You do not need a medical marijuana license to attend the event. However you do need a valid Colorado medical marijuana license to take part in any sampling of marijuana or cannabis infused products. This year's event promises to be a unique celebration of the cannabis lifestyle with Colorado medical marijuana dispensaries and growers bringing their best to present to the public, event attendees and Cannabis Cup judges.
