It’s the first day of the 2018 SoCal Cannabis Cup and you can feel the excitement in the air. People from all walks of life are coming together for this exciting three-day event. We’re celebrating every aspect of the plant. The technological innovations. The medical advancements. The growing acceptance of responsible recreational use.
And, of course, the movers and shakers who make it all happen.
This year the Cannabis Cup will feature tons of attractions, including artists doing rad body marbling, a super slide and even a petting zoo with adorable baby goats. As always, we’ll be judging a wide array of cannabis products, including concentrates, edibles, vape pens and more.
Oh, yeah. And also musical performances by the likes of Nas, 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne among many others.
The San Bernardino City Council may have made a last-minute decision to block the sale of legal cannabis-based products at the cup. But don’t sweat. You can still BYOB (Bring Your Own Bud) to enjoy and share in a friendly, supportive and non-judgmental environmental.
SoCal Cannabis Cup Festival Map:
When and Where is the SoCal Cannabis Cup?
The SoCal Cannabis Cup is from April 20th to the 22nd at the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino California. Doors open at 12 pm for VIP tickets and 12:30 for GA each day. The event closes at 10 pm on Friday/Saturday and 8 pm on Sunday.
Who Can Attend This Year?
This year, anyone aged 18 or over will be allowed to attend the event. Just bring ID to prove it.
Where Can You Park?
Follow signs when you arrive at the NOS Events Center for paid attendee parking.
Where Can I Find the Baby Goats?
Here is our festival map so you don’t have to try and figure out how to navigate the event while stoned at the last minute.
Can You Buy Weed?
The San Bernardino City Council voted to block the lawful sale of cannabis-based products at the last minute. But that won’t stop us from blazing together while celebrating the people, music and herb that has healed so many. There are hundreds of medical/recreational cannabis dispensaries and delivery services throughout California where you can make purchases prior to entering the event.
Can You Smoke Weed?
Absolutely. Cannabis will still be consumed at the cannabis cup.
How Does Judging Work?
Entries are scored using a two-tiered digital system that includes a qualitative score from judges and a quantitative score from lab tests.
The qualitative score accounts for 75 percent of the total, with judges looking at aroma, flavor, visual appeal, potency and other factors depending on the category.
The lab testing accounts for the rest.
