Participants / Entries

We are accepting entries of prop 215 compliant sun grown “light deprivation” cannabis.

We have three categories.

1st) Indica and Indica dominant hybrids

2nd) Sativa and Sativa dominant hybrids

3rd) Chem/Og/Diesel hybrids “fuel” and Chem/Og/Diesel dominant hybrids

All cannabis entries will be tested for pesticides and mold, as well as a full cannabinoid profile and terpene profile.

Any cannabis found with mold or pesticides will be disqualified.

Cannabis Evaluations

As a participant you will receive an evaluation package. The cannabis will be evaluated on looks, smells, tastes and affect. We will also request comments around each aspect of the evaluation. Beyond participant evaluations, we will have patient evaluations and expert cannabis enthusiasts evaluating the medicine.

Entry Requirements

To enter you will need to donate a minimum of 60 and up to 70 grams of cannabis. We recommend more rather than less. We also ask for a $250 donation to help cover testing and overhead.
