Here we go again, ready to burn, FIRE! HOT! RED!

We are LIVE again, this time from freezing Amsterdam! It's time for another edition of the best stoner's party of the year:

the HIGH TIMES CANNABIS CUP

We are now at the 24th edition, and it's an event that does not need introductions.

It's the mother of all cannabis meetings, bringing together smokers, growers, smugglers, breeders, seedmakers, coffeeshop owners, cannabis travelers, and all kind of people from all kind of places. They all come to Amsterdam to judge the best cannabis of the year, and to have a hell of a time with their friends. It started as a small private event in 1988, it is now a couple of thousands Judges large... and growing. Many times I have heard criticism about the tecnicalities of the vent, but people should understand what the spirit behind it is, and what it has done for the cannabis cause in the last 24 years. Yes, there might be better Cups when it comes to really judging cannabis (no blind testing, too many strains to judge in a few days, and so on...), but there would be none of them, and no cannabis expos and tradeshows either, if it wouldn't be for the Cannabis Cup pioneering the industry. Steven Hager, founder and organizer, has my maximum respect and I consider him a cannbais hero and a cannabis legend.
This thread is a celebration of the Cup, so please open other threads if you want to argue technicalities. This thread is here to keep you informed and updated with what we do during the Cup, and to show the whole world how much fun people can have with cannabis.

Personally, this is my 11th Cannabis Cup (1 as a judge in 1999, 10 representing Green House in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010).
I've only missed it in 2007, when I was busy in Africa for a few months... ;-) but that's another story.

Anyway, the Cannabis Cup begins officially on the 20th of November, but in reality many judges are already arriving in town starting from tomorrow. For me, the 24th High Times Cannabis Cup has already started. I have been busy all day preparing the Vaporizers, having meetings about the logistics, the goodie-bags, the stickers, the posters, the stand for the Expo, the presentation of our entries, and a LOT more.
Starting tomorrow I will post pics, and Admin is setting up a LIVE VIDEO STREAM so we will be able to show you what happens at the Cup in real time, real LIVE. All you hunters that cannot make it to Amsterdam this years will feel like you're part of the game and the action, it's a promise.

Our slogan this year is OCCUPY GREEN HOUSE!


And now let's talk cannabis!

OFFICIAL LIST OF ENTRIES FOR THE 24TH HIGH TIMES CANNABIS CUP (voted by all those with a Judge Pass):

GREEN HOUSE COFFEESHOP

weed entry: HAWAIIAN SNOW
imported hash entry: EXODUS CREAM CHEESE
nederhash entry: HAWAIIAN ICE

We are also entering in the Seed Company Cup (voted only by a small group of Celebrity Judges invited by High Times), with 2 different seed companies: GREEN HOUSE SEED CO. and the new STRAIN HUNTER SEEDS (to be launched in 2012).


For the Seed Company Cup there are 4 categories this year: indica, sativa, hybrid, hash.

Our entries are:

GREEN HOUSE SEED CO.
weed indica entry: DIAMOND GIRL
weed sativa entry: HAWAIIAN SNOW
weed hybrid entry: EXODUS CHEESE
hash entry: EXODUS JELLY

STRAIN HUNTER SEEDS
weed indica entry: still to be decided, we have few options and 1 day left....
weed sativa entry: PANAMA HAZE
weed hybrid entry: ORANGE SHACK
hash entry: MONEY MAKER JELLY

So, I bet I will get a lot of questions about these new names... but be patient until tomorrow, I will give you all the info when the decisions for Strain Hunter Seeds entries in the Seed Company Cup are confirmed final.

Admin will give you more info on the LIVE VIDEO STREAM soon, and he will run most of the show here on the forum during the days of the event, because I will be too busy with the judges and the vaporizers and the parties...;-) it's a tough job, but somebody has to do it... LOL

To all those who are coming over to Amsterdam, just come to the Green House and let's start smoking guys. No more bullshit, the moment has come... it's CANNABIS CUP!!!!

;-)

PEACE, LOVE & THC

Hi Franco,

I'm a total noob when it comes to the cannabis cup im a dutchman so shame on me.

I love to smoke but i am not a daily smoker.

What would you advice me to do during this cannibus cup should i become a judge?

And what do i need to do if im a judge off course smoke great weed but do i need to test al kinds of weed in the competition or a % .

Or should i just swing by one of the greenhouse shops and enjoy the time.

And do you have any special things happening in the greenhouse coffeeshops during the cup or only at the expo?

Im sorry for my english and the number of questions.

Have a nice one,

Anyway, i'll keep checking out the post and pump myself up untill monday we're i'll see all of you for a wake and bake at the green house seeds coffee shop (let me know which one potent and tokage btw!)

Peace out!
