The High Times Cannabis Cup is the world’s preeminent Cannabis festival. Founded in 1987 by Steven Hager, the High Times Cannabis Cup is held each November in Amsterdam, and in 2013 the first American iteration of this event was held in Denver, Colorado on April 20 (see 420).[1][2] The event allows judges from around the world to sample and vote for their favorite marijuana varieties. These judges-at-large decide the Cannabis Cup (overall winner in the cannabis variety competition), best new product, best booth, best grass, best hash and best Nederhash. A team of VIP judges decide which seed company has grown the best marijuana. The High Times Cannabis Cup also includes live music, comedy and an expo for marijuana-related products from cannabis-oriented businesses. Beginning with the 6th Cup, Hager began fusing counterculture spirituality into the event and using the time 4:20 as an important ceremonial moment. "Most of what I learned about spirituality came from Stephen Gaskin and Ina May Gaskin and from attending National Rainbow Family Gatherings," says Hager.

Marijuana use is decriminalized in most parts of The Netherlands. Much of the marijuana present at the Cup is from the different coffee shops around Amsterdam. Usually the High Times Cannabis Cup features a surprise variety of marijuana that is new to the culture and will be tested by the judges. Many tourists go to Amsterdam specifically to attend the festival.[3]

Recently, High Times created the Medical Cannabis Cup – an event that celebrates the medical marijuana movement in America. The first High Times Medical Cannabis Cup took place in San Francisco, California June 19–20, 2010. Subsequently, additional High Times Medical Cannabis events also now take place in Denver, Colorado and San Bermardino, California. Most recently, a High Times Cannabis event is set to occur in Seattle, Washington.[4]

Judging[edit]

To be a judge one must pay an extra fee, which allows the attendee to vote upon the many different varieties. The judge's pass sells for $199 USD prior to June 1 after which the price increases to $250 USD. A judge's pass costs 250 euros if purchased at the event.[5]

One big misconception is that marijuana at the High Times Cannabis Cup is consumed only by means of smoking. However, any method of getting high through the use of cannabis is acceptable at the Cup.

Visitors[edit]

People from around the globe attend the festival. 2003 marked the festival's first decline in attendance, so 2004's event was held on a smaller basis. Since then, the event has rebounded to new heights. The highest recorded participation was in 2008 with 2,300 judges.

Counterculture Hall of Fame[edit]

Created in 1997 to celebrate the history of the counterculture and the people who helped shape it, the Counterculture Hall of Fame holds its induction ceremony during the High Times Cannabis Cup each November. Previous inductees include Bob Marley (1997), Louis Armstrong (1998), William S. Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, and Jack Kerouac (1999), Bob Dylan (2002), Jack Herer (2003), Tommy Chong and Cheech Marin (2007), Peter Tosh (2008) Tom Forcade (2009) and Coke La Rock (2010).

Film[edit]

A DVD called High Times Presents: The Cannabis Cup was made after 2003's festival. A film of the 2007 High Times Cannabis Cup, which marked the event's 20th anniversary, was released in the summer of 2008. The 20th High Times Cannabis Cup featured hosts Tommy Chong and Redman.
