Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Farmers Cup Series?

The Farmers Cup is a series of Licensed Cannabis Cup competitions in San Diego, CA.

Farmers Cup Series

Valentines Cup (Edibles-only)

420 Cup (ALL Categories: Flower / Pre-Rolls / Vape Carts / Concentrates / Edibles / Others )

710 Cup (Concentrates-only)

Harvest Cup (Flower-only)

  The Farmers Cup mission is about giving the people who are the end-users the chance to judge from a wide variety of legal cannabis products. Education is stressed at the online event, so that consumers know what they’re spending their hard earned money on, not just THC%. Think20 Testing Labs present terpene information and supply a double layer of safety to an already tested product. The virtual events allow the judging to take place at the judges home, over the course of a week or more. This offers a true experience possibly for the first time – since the judge is not rushed, or in an unusual atmosphere. It’s a win-win for brands and judges – we have hundreds of positive comments like “this cup has changed my buying habits completely”

When is the next Farmers Cup event?

The next Farmers Cup event is the Harvest Cup (Flower-only) competition taking place in Late-November. Click here to register for early judge ticket information.

How much product does it take to enter the Farmers Cup?

What does it mean to be a judge?

We want great judges who will take the time to fully score all products by the deadline of each competition, and give detailed comments on aesthetics, aroma, taste, effects, and other notable qualities of each product. Growers put their hearts and souls into making these products and we expect the same from our judges. Judge Kits will come with instructions on how to score each product. **You may post content of judging to your social handles for a chance to be featured and reposted by Farmers Cup Official on Instagram. Please keep your scoring confidential until the results are announced.
