Registration To Compete For The Emerald Cup Closes Today

The 19th Annual ECA’s will happen May 13th at the Craneway Pavilion

The 19th Annual Emerald Cup Competition is now underway and accepting entries in over 48 categories through Friday March 3rd, 2023!



Referred to “the Academy Awards of Cannabis” by Rolling Stone Magazine – The Emerald Cup is deeply rooted in California, but in recent years our world-renowned competition has expanded in to include multiple categories for federally compliant hemp-based products which we can accept from anywhere in the country! In fact, Flowgardens out of Tennessee won 1st Place in the 2022 Emerald Cup Hemp CBD Flower Category with their Orange Glaze #32.

HEMP categories include: Hemp Consumable – Edible items produced using hemp, not cannabis, Hemp Flower – Hemp Flower, not cannabis & Hemp Topical – Topical items produced using hemp, not cannabis The prestige that comes with such an award, backed by the brand affiliation with the authenticity of the Emerald Cup has proven to be a successful combination for brands and farmers in cannabis.


You can apply and mail in your entries today and join us for an unforgettable evening at the 19th Annual Emerald Cup Awards ceremony and celebration on Saturday, May 13th, 2023 on the bayfront at the magnificent Craneway Pavilion in Richmond, California.

All Contestants will be invited to attend the 19th ANNUAL EMERALD CUP AWARDS!
