Still confused? Let’s break it down further.
HOW DOES JUDGING WORK?
The Cannabis Classic judging experience is markedly differently from other cannabis competitions. Many cannabis competitions have judges consume upwards of 100 samples in a short period of time. That kind of competition structure makes it hard for judges to decipher between samples. The Classic, on the other hand, provides judges with nearly three weeks so they can accurately assess each sample. The Cannabis Classic competition is the premier blind-tasting, consumer-judged cannabis competition on the West Coast.
To qualify, judges must complete our judges’ certification program (powered by StrainRx) to ensure proficiency and aptitude. In addition, the Classic publishes all judges scorecards online for the world to see after winners are announced on Dec 17th.
Again, judging happens prior to Cannabis Classic event. Each sample is scored based on a series of questions about certain characteristics, and is evaluated on the following aspects: appearance (trichome coverage, manicuring), aroma, taste, burn, effect, medical benefits and side-effects (if any). An algorithm created by StrainRx automatically generates a score for each entry based on answers to the questions.
All judges must enter their scores into the online system by no later than Dec 12th, 2017; at which point they will be aggregated by StrainRx. Results will then be sent to show officials and the winners will be announced at the Cannabis Classic Award Show on Dec 17th.
SO WHAT’S WITH THIS AWARDS SHOW?
Winners of the Cannabis Classic cannabis competition, along with the winners of the industry awards, will be announced at the Cannabis Classic High Holiday Award Show on Sunday Dec 17, 2017. The awards show will be the highlight of this years event, along with a keynote address, education-stations, holiday themed activities, music and more.
