  1. Too bad entries were only from the few companies allowed to grow. Lol there is better weed in Illinois, it’s just grown from people without licenses

  2. I’ll give Revolution best Indica, Florida Orange is a pretty tasty strain, the rest I call bull. Cresco on average has the best Sativa, and Red Line Haze(while berry delicious, has nothing on their Lime Skunk or their Durban; which to me is the best weed to come out of Illinois full stop). Vape I don’t believe, as PTS’s Berry Bliss, and Cresco’s entire line of Vapes are so far ahead of everything else; the fact Jet Fuel Gelato won Third is a testament to the inaccuracy of this judging. For concentrates: Gorilla Glue #4 wins? This is a good concentrate if you want to get high, but not very tasty, and not in line with the rest of the results(all the other stuff is fruity). Again, Cresco’s Sweet island, Durban, and Lime Skunk all blow Gorilla Glue #4 away… the smell alone of sweet island budder is one of the most seductive thing’s I’ve ever experienced. Hybrids, Sure, I guess i could see it, though again, Cresco’s Hybrids are pretty much right there(weird they wouldn’t get a 2nd or 3rd). Edibles and pre-rolled are such oddballs: i could see all those as possible(but again, I’m suspicious of the results, as I’ve had Cresco’s Milk Chocolate covered blue berries and Dark Chocolate covered Coffee Beans, yum). I’m starting to sound like a Cresco fan boy lol, but honestly, they have had the best weed this year, and they got 1 – 3rd place finish. There’s just no way

  3. What a lost opportunity by High Times and Illinois cultivators. Almost zero marketing, judging and judge applications not transparent, and judges limited to Med patients. For the results to be useful and applicable, some insider knowledge about the Illinois market would’ve been helpful and might have even lended some actual credibility to the results.
    Reviews of products that are seldom available are useless: I know this is a function of timing and what cultivators has ready to sample…but plan it better then. Cultivators should be putting their best products forward, not just what they had laying around at the time.

    Mediocre effort by a company I expected more from. The results of these Cannabis Cups are used for marketing and in social media for the next year. They should mean more than a “skimming “ of the available products in Illinois.

    1. I know, I feel the same, it’s going to probably be that way next year as well. But, the year after that… We might have a shot 🙂
