The Shift visits The Emerald Cup

California’s 2016 Adult Use Cannabis Initiative: Unify for Success!

The-Shift-smallAbout The Emerald Cup: The Emerald Cup was founded by Tim Blake in 2003 to promote Northern California as the premier destination for medicinal marijuana while advancing the concept of sustainable, outdoor farming. “Northern California is a region with one of the oldest and most established medicinal marijuana growing communities,” said Tim Blake. “We have endeavored to keep our methods and our product pure and free from toxins. As a group, we have amassed an enormous amount of experience and expertise, which we enjoy sharing with fellow farmers each year at The Emerald Cup.” The event is named for the area in Mendocino and Humboldt known as The Emerald Triangle, widely regarded for producing the world’s finest cannabis. It is a community celebration honoring the year’s finest, sun-grown, medicinal cannabis harvest. 2013 solidified The Emerald Cup’s reputation as the largest, most respected, organic, outdoor, medicinal cannabis competition in the world. From small beginnings in Laytonville over a decade ago, this event has now proven itself to be “The Definitive Cup for the Fall Harvest.”

As we approach legalization in 2016, it is imperative that the various activists groups and the entire cannabis related culture join together to ensure we have a comprehensive initiative that benefits us all, not just a compromise.
