The Cannabis Classic is the premiere blind-tasting, consumer-judged US cannabis competition and award show.

The Cannabis Classic was created to provide a platform for cannabis breeders and growers to gain recognition. Without the cannabis growers, there isn’t a cannabis industry. It’s important to celebrate their innovation, dedication and passion for the cannabis plant and continually producing the finest quality product.

We set out to create a fair and totally transparent competition by choosing to enlist members of the public as judges. Judges are not had picked by Classic staff, they come from all demographics and backgrounds.
