One of the largest and most prestigious cannabis events in the world, The Emerald Cup is an annual cannabis competition and festival held in iconic California.The competition is named after the region where it originated, the Emerald Triangle, which encompasses Humboldt, Mendocino, and Trinity counties in Northern California.
The Emerald Cup was first held in 2003 and has since become a prominent gathering for cannabis cultivators, enthusiasts, and industry professionals. The event typically includes various activities such as live music performances, educational panels, vendors, and, of course, the cannabis competition itself. It’s the gathering grounds for some of the industry’s most prolific creators and consumers.
The competition aspect of the Emerald Cup focuses on showcasing and celebrating the best cannabis products from the region. Entries are submitted by cannabis growers, breeders, and manufacturers who compete in different categories such as flowers, concentrates, edibles, topicals, and more. The entries are judged by a panel of experts, including industry professionals, growers, and connoisseurs, who evaluate the quality, flavor, aroma, and overall experience of the products.
Winning an award at the Emerald Cup is highly regarded within the cannabis industry and can significantly boost the reputation and recognition of the winning brands or cultivators. The event also serves as a platform for networking, learning, and discussing the latest developments in the cannabis industry. It has played a significant role in promoting sustainable and organic cultivation practices and supporting the local cannabis community in Northern California.
Winners Used The Press Club Rosin Bags and Bubble Wash Bags
And this year, we were blown away to see all the winners who use The Press Club rosin bags and bubble wash bags in their SOPs to produce the highest quality medicine for the community. If you told us earlier this year that our rosin bags and bubble bags would play a small part in the extraction process to help bring the trophies home, we would have called you crazy!
We're beyond humbled each of these top placers won using our gear in their SOP to produce the highest quality medicine for the community. All the respect goes to the farmer and washer!
