high times cannabis cup denver coloradoEver since I was a teenager, I have dreamed of a day when the High Times Cannabis Cup would be held in America. That dream was somewhat realized when High Times started holding medical Cannabis Cups in California and Colorado. Now it looks like the full dream is being realized, because High Times is holding the first recreational Cannabis Cup in America, on 4/20 no less! Below are details for the event:

The first-ever HIGH TIMES US Cannabis Cup is coming to Denver! The two-day cannabis expo will feature cultivation seminars and activism sessions with HIGH TIMES editors, leaders of the marijuana movement, and major cannabis celebrities.

Plus, don’t miss Cali Connection Presents: The Saturday Night VIP Homegrown Party, featuring Cypress Hill and Slightly Stoopid at Red Rocks! Limited tickets available!

  1. As long as you are 21+ you can purchase weed/alcohol and smoke in designated areas for recreational use, they do not have retails open for it yet so they will be having the many medicinal companies providing much of the medicine and since state law is that it’s legal for recreational use, anyone entering the cannabis cup can purchase and smoke there as long as you’re 21 or older

  2. Haha if you read it right it says that it’s the first cannabis cup in America for recreational use of marijuana, all the previous cannabis cups in Colorado and Cali have only been for medical marijuana use and were only open to those who were patients, this is the first cannabis cup where anyone can attend no matter what state you’re from with no regard to your medical status, it’s not misinformation just us stoners missing what’s being said hahaha

  3. This is way wrong.. the cannabis cup has been held (in the last 3 years) in san francisco, oakland, seattle – and los angeles – I have been there. I have evidence of that -LOL so all of these articles saying it is the first is way, way WRONG…..total misinformation and I am so disappointed that this is happening on so many websites that I love.

  4. Will we be able to purchase weed at the CC event? Colorado does not have dispensary/retail outlets set up for recreational use so how can the visitors obtain (legally) the cup contestants?
