Midwest Cannabis cup 2018

This is round 2 for Cannabis cup in michigan this year and will be held on Saturday September 8th & 9th 2018 and tickets range from $50 - $160 depending on days and admission type.

Rain or shine, nothing stops this party at the Auto City Speedway in Clio, Michigan. High Times is hosting the semi-annual Midwest Cannabis Cup and it will not be an event to miss! (with the previous cannabis cup on June 22-24th)

What is the Cannabis Cup?

Imagine a tournament among cannabis growers to compete who actually has the best overall product by judging from presentation, taste, smell, and more; enter Cannabis Cup.

Listen to world renown music artists playing their hottest tunes while you grab a something to eat, drink and smoke!

Get ready to hang with some of the best buds you could ask for as brands come from all around to compete for the gold medal but most importantly a title of the number one product around! The vendors are this festival are not 100% herb and concentrates though my friends, as you explore you will discover unbelievable glassworks made by local artists from around the area!

Remember what happened last time...

Only at the world's headmost gathering of the cannabis community would masters of this craft come together to compete. Not only will you be surrounded from a sea of green, the live entertainment is truly impressive. But if a lineup of music industry giants like Ludacris to Lil Wayne to Machine gun Kelly wasn't awesome enough, you will surely find inspiration from the goods that the vendor booths have to offer.. Keep in mind, only certified medical patients are allowed in, soooooo.. you’re going to need state photo ID and documentation with you when you see the doctor down there. They don't mess around down at the High Time Cannabis Cup!

An affair to remember..

The High Times Cannabis Cup is a must-go for those interested in not only cannabis itself, but education and experience in the field for those looking to grow as an individual. A doctor will be on-site for people who have an appointment or wish to get certified! So call ahead and make sure you’re able to see them before you get there and make sure to have a full belly! because there aren't usually many options for food. Medication is permitted so don’t be afraid when the security guard finds your Ooze Duplex you forgot to put away! Its all good.
