The long-awaited High Times Cannabis Cup Oregon: People’s Choice Edition 2023 results are finally here! It’s been eight months since we announced our return to explore the Beaver State, and the wait has finally ended.
It’s an especially unique return too, given that technically we haven’t been back to check out Oregon’s plethora of offerings since our People’s Choice Edition cup was announced in July 2020, and results were published in January 2021.
That all being said, a lot has changed since our last in-person cannabis cup event in Oregon, which was held in 2019 (remember the pandemic? It feels like a fever dream now). Back then, we were seeing popular strains Ice Cream Cake, Sundae Driver, Ghost Train Haze, Forbidden Fruit in the winner’s list. Concentrates included a handful of gorgeous diamonds, live resin sauce, sugar, and so much more. (And for edibles lovers, who can forget marshmallow bon-bons, infused lemonade, and fudge.)
Then the 2020 Oregon People’s Choice Edition results showed in early 2021. We had to shift some of our planned dates due to devastating wildfires that ravaged the area at the time, but crowd favorite winners were strains such as Strawberry Guava, MAC1, Motorbreath, Blueberry Muffins, and Mimosa that took home awards. Brands like Deschutes Growery, PDX Organics, and Decibel Farms took home multiple awards in categories for flower, while concentrate trends included delicious live rosin and solventless hash rosin. Our edibles category expanded that year, so there were many more crowd favorite chocolates, caramels, gummies, brownies, and cookies.
It’s been nearly two years since we’ve asked the good people of Oregon to meticulously rank some of their state’s best products. Now check out the new generation of winners, from returning fan favorites to brand new competitors that seriously impressed our judges.
