The High Times Cannabis Cup (HTCC) is now known as simlpy the Cannabis Cup, it is the longest and most respected competition in the world of Cannabis, for decades the best connossieurs come together to award prizes to the best Cannabis of the year, traditionally always held in Amsterdam, the European cradle of Cannabis, but in recent years has moved to the other side of the globe.
The HTCC began in 1988 and the winner was the mithical Skunk #1, it was a milestone for bringing high yield growing to indoor spaces with artificial light. Since that year this cup is held annually in November uninterruptedly. Although, in recent years and due to the marijuana legalization in the U.S. it has become so popular that they have begun to make several annual editions in different locations. For example the year 2018 was celebrated in the following locations: So-cal (Southern California), Denver, Nor-cal (Northern California), Michigan, Seattle and of course Amsterdam.
Concretely the first year that was celebrated in USA was in the 2010 and there continues until the present time, it can be said that the world Cannabis focus has moved to another continent, losing countries that could have inherited it, like Spain, which by its geographical and social characteristics could have been easily the place of reference for marijuana lovers.
The number of prizes has also been increasing with the passage of time, the first year there was only one winner, with the best marijuana award, currently there are innumerable awards, which are multiplied by each of the editions in each place. In the last contest of 2018 there were the following categories, where there could be up to 3 winners, a first, a second and a third. This has all the logic since the world of Cannabis has grown exponentially, however it must be recognized that less magic remains. The complete list of modalities where marijuanas can be presented at the 2018 Cannabis Cup was: Best variety of Coffeeshop, best Sativa by a seed company, best Indica by a seed company, best hybrid by a seed company, best Import Hash by a Coffeeshop, best Import Hash by a Seed Company, best NederHash by a Coffeeshop, best NederHash by a seed company, maximum CBD - Concentrates, the highest CBD - Flowers, best product, best glass.
