This past weekend, the fourth annual High Times Bay Area Cannabis Cup took place in Richmond, CA. The Medical Cannabis Cup is an event that stems from the High Times Cannabis Cup, which is held over Thanksgiving in Amsterdam. The Cannabis Cup, started in 1987, is a world-renowned event that celebrates the counter-culture. It brings people from around the world to a central location to celebrate marijuana and the encompassed art of growing and smoking it. The Bay Area Cannabis Cup was started in 2010, and includes much of the same ideology and events as the original Cannabis Cup. The gathering included many different seminars, as well as speeches from some well-known activists and cultivators. The headlining acts for the 2013 Bay Area Cannabis Cup were Wu Tang Clan’s Ghostface Killah, Raekwon and GZA, with DJ Dif’Rent opening the concert.


The original vision for the Cannabis Cup was not only to bring together people for the common cause, but also to allow people to try, evaluate and vote on different strains of marijuana. The Medical Cannabis Cup was the same, and representatives of the preeminent marijuana magazine, High Times, presented the winners, which are as follows:
