Under the bluest skies of San Diego on May 18, much of the sun-grown community regaled in celebration of the friendliest of competitions at the 6th annual Farmers Cup held at Wicked West in the downtown area. With around 2,000 attendees, growers from all over the state converged for this harmonious homage to the sun and the bounty it provides with energetic vendors glowing and vibrant music flowing.

“With my partner John Caruso, we’re thrilled to connect licensed California Cannabis brands with the San Diego Cannabis market and culture through our fun competitions and also by supporting other events,” says organizer Barry Herzberg. Every year, the judging for the competition is done entirely by using people’s choice digital ballots where the winners are based purely upon the number of votes received from the 60-100 judges per category, so that anyone can get involved.

Also, check out their 7/10 Cup for Concentrates and then the Harvest Cup in mid-November where indoor, light deprivation and infused products are added to the competition.

About Mike Ricker

The first time Ricker smoked weed was at a Santana concert at the age of 12. He then followed in his footsteps as an award-winning radio personality who became notorious for offering a stage for bong toking listeners in 9 different markets over 20 years. In 2016, the Cannabis industry came calling and the rest is history.
