Conversations In Cannabis: Tim And Taylor Blake – The Emerald Cup

We sat down with the duo to talk about the return of the legendary event

The California cannabis market is the largest and most diverse on the planet and the Emerald Cup has long stood as the premier competition, celebration, and direct-to-consumer marketplace for the best that Cali has to offer.

In response to years of valued feedback from Emerald Cup participants, 2021 will offer the first of its kind Emerald Cup Harvest Ball in Santa Rosa on December 11th & 12th at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds.

We sat down with Tim and Taylor Blake, the father and daughter team behind The Emerald Cup to talk all about the return of their world class northern Californian cannabis event.
