This past weekend, we had our very first Alaska Cannabis Cup in the city of Wasilla. Dozens of growers and companies rose to the occasion and brought forth their best products for consideration. Here are the winners of the first Alaska Cannabis Cup:

Best Indica

1st Place: Strawberry Banana by 2 Bros Growin’

The judges said: “Trichome profile was fantastic. Smelled super sticky, [had a] very pleasant aroma, and smooth taste with no harsh, throaty feel. [It] burned nice and medium [and produced a] heady high.”
