What makes Dope Cup the most legitimate competition?

There are many cannabis competitions, but only the Dope Cup uses the scientifically-based Trichrome Institutes TAG scoring system.  Trichrome uses a double-blind grading procedure done by experts, a detailed SOP, and a cannabis grading calculator app. The DOPE Cup is the first cannabis competition in the nation to adopt these practices to ensure the most legitimate and scientifically backed judging process in the industry.

Why enter the Dope Cup?

The Dope Cup gives your company critical business intelligence and competitive analysis on how your products measure up in the marketplace.

Each entry gets a complete Trichome TAG score (a $200 value).

Each winner is featured in the Dope Cup recap in our monthly print magazine, gets recognized in our recap on our website, and receives an official Winner Badge for use on all your packaging, website, email signatures, or wherever you want to shout it out.

Judging by The Trichome Institute

Cannabis competitions and strain reviewers have never had a standard way to grade cannabis quality thoughtfully, scientifically, and accurately. The Trichome Institute’s TAG lab uses a double blind grading procedure done by experts, an SOP, and a cannabis grading calculator app. The DOPE Cup is the first cannabis competition in the nation to adopt these practices to ensure the most fair and scientifically backed judging process in the industry.

About The Trichome Institute

ALL DOPE CUP ENTRIES WILL RECEIVE A FULL TAG SCORE REPORT

Grading and judging cannabis is a big deal that is overburdened with too much smoke and mirrors. Many headies say cannabis cups are total bullshit; and they’re right… Bragging about cannabis has been a part of the culture since well before the legal industry, and it’s a bigger deal than you may think. But is it real?
