The 2016 Emerald Cup Winners

Over the weekend, 30,000 industry veterans and stoners invaded Northern California for the annual The Emerald Cup. Unlike your typical Cannabis Cup or industry contest, The Emerald Cup honors the outdoor growers that make Northern California the great outdoor grow capital of the world that it is.

The Emerald Cup started out as a small event in 2003 to celebrate Mendocino County’s outdoor weed. If you even glanced at social media over the weekend, you saw that this little gathering has now turned into a full-fledged festival in celebration of our annual harvest.

And while there are some winners (soon come), this event is about more than just weed: it’s about bringing the real cannabis community together and keeping the soul of the industry where it belongs. In the hands of our growers and hustlers.
