“The Emerald Cup is one gathering that all cannabis enthusiasts should plan to attend…It is obvious why cannabis enthusiasts return to The Emerald Cup year after year. It was an experience like no other…” – Vegas Cannabis Magazine

The Emerald Cup is Northern California’s premier destination for medicinal marijuana, while advancing the concept of sustainable, outdoor farming. Its reputation is firmly solidified as the largest, most respected, organic, outdoor, medicinal cannabis competition in the world. As a group, The Emerald Cup prides itself in bringing together experts and educators in the cannabis field to our fellow farmers, patients, and patrons each year. It is a community celebration that has grown to become a global movement honoring the year’s finest, organic, sun-grown, medicinal cannabis harvest.

Rolling Stone called it “the Academy Awards of the cannabis industry,” other accolades include; “epic marijuana festival in Wine Country” – SF Gate, Smell The Truth, “best weed fest in the West-or any other direction” – North Bay Bohemian, “refreshing…Home To Top-shelf…Everything” – Medical Jane.

From its small beginnings in Laytonville over a decade ago, The Emerald Cup has proven itself to be “The Definitive Cup for the Fall Harvest.” The Emerald Cup has transformed into not only a competition of the best-grown organic, outdoor cannabis, but just as importantly, into an international educational forum for the most up to date issues in cannabis culture.
