A different type of best bud competition featuring a panel of certified Cannabis Sommeliers and industry experts judging Canada’s finest cannabis—brought by you!
Featuring the first Judges Panel comprised of CannaReps Cannabis Sommeliers and notable industry experts.
The Collector’s Cup is a cannabis cup event for cannabis connoisseurs, and enthusiasts with aspirations of upping their game. This event will be the first to celebrate product appreciation skills together with the amazing growers and breeders that have made our industry possible. The bud cup portion of the event is a bit different than other events of this type because we showcase the connoisseur consumer getting a chance to share their skills and their favorite flowers amongst a community of certified Cannabis Sommeliers and notable industry experts.
Have fun while expanding your skills learning about the hottest varieties on the market!
Fun. Learning. Community. That’s the Collector’s Cup!
brought to you by CannaReps
Bring 14 grams of each flower you wish to present to the Judges Panel along with your $20 cash fee (free for alumni!). Go to the registration table and let them know the categories you will be entering. Hold on to your bud. You will be called twice: Once for show-and-tell on the stage (tell us all about your bud and what you like about it!) and a second time to proceed to the Judge’s Hall where your bud will be reviewed with you present in the room. You will roll a joint or pack a bowl and proceed outside with a group of up to 4 judges in order to taste your sample(s). You must be present during the tasting. You will be sharing some of your sample with our judges during the tasting but the rest of your sample is yours to keep. The Collector’s Cup does not take possession of your flowers at any time, so ensure to keep your ears open for your number otherwise your flower will not be included in the judging.
Only legally-acquired flowers, regardless of how they were grown. Next year there will be concentrate and sun-grown categories.
Mostly CannaReps alumni, but also industry specialists who have either purchased a ticket or who have been invited directly by CannaReps. If you wish to purchase this ticket and do not hold a certification please write us at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us about your experience with the plant.
