“After seeing that, in 2016, our dream became a reality, we will strive to offer an even better experience for everyone.”
Cannabis Cups, without a doubt, have become the epicenter and focal point of recognition to cultivators worldwide. There are many cups in many places around the globe. In South America, Argentina, Uruguay, and Chile are recognized as the founders in the Latin American Cannabis industry. These are well known for their events and cups which recognize and include local farmers within their industry. However, Colombia is becoming better known and obtaining popularity based on the quality of their local growers. El Copo Cannabis Cup marked a before and an after in the Colombian Cannabis culture and, once again, is set to promote and push the great effort and work performed nationally, proving a platform for those who wish to grow their passion.
Inside of the cannabis scene, one of the mayor players is the farmer who is the passionate person that dedicates a great portion of their life to establishing and taking care of the garden. The cannabis crop takes much more than just soil, water, and love. This is where a difference is noted between a novice grower, a farmer, and a professional. This space is specific to determining your level as a farmer. It is you who are the industry pillars that is currently in stages of development. Your knowledge and dedication will be what determines the national cannabis quality. Our mission is and will always be to recognize those that are the best.
The bud, the main character in this cup, is how we call the fruit of the cannabis plant. It is known as the flower, the heart, that beautiful and perfectly dried and cured result that produces aromas and deploys its flavonoids and terpenes that leave our fingers sticky and full of resin with a simple touch. During the second edition of the cup, let’s show the entire world the beautiful fruit that impressed our judges and the farmers in attendance. We are anxious to taste the delicious results of your hard work and dedication.
El Copo 2016 left us a beautiful experience that had great contestants that included 53 flower samples and 22 extraction samples. Farmers from the Colombian Cauca, distinct regions of the coast, the interior of this wonderful country, and international locations had a presence in the event. El Copo 2016 truly marked a historic moment in our local cannabis culture.
Extractions have taken an interesting step in today’s cannabis culture. These are the reduction of the flower to oils, resins, or hash using different methodologies. The inclusion of these methods in El Copo 2017 will be stronger and those that love extractions will have a special place in the competition. We will recognize the merits and efforts of participants in that area.
The competition will be judged by a team comprised of national and international personalities highly recognized in the industry. During the 2016 event, we were blessed to have Mila Jansen (Polinator Company), Stephen Clarke (Havengrown), Mauricio Luporini (Cañabis Protectio) , Adrian Giraudo (Cañabis Protectio) , Miguel Moreno (Kumari), Pierre Diederichs (Omero El Farmero) and Guillermo Suárez (Weed Social Club).
Each participant has the right to present two genetics and an extraction.
¡Place your crop in movement!
Your greatest effort has finally placed you here...the result of so much love and work are summarized in the flower, that which has surpassed the first test.
The moment of truth has arrived
The prize is the motivation for the event.
Let's remember the second day of the cup, Abril 17 2016.
