The Cannabis Classic, presented by Pakalolo Supply Co., announced today a partnership with StrainRX.co that makes StainRX the official partner of the Classic’s cannabis competition in Alaska. As part of the partnership, StrainRX will manage the judging experience, oversee the judging process, and calculate the scorecards.
“We are always looking to improve the experience for the judges,” said Kendra Wray, the event organizer. “Our partnership with StrainRX will enhance the judging experience, simplify the evaluation process for judges, and streamline the scoring process for competition officials.”
Here’s how it works: judges will create their profile at StrainRX. Upon creating their profile, they will be activated as judges for the Cannabis Classic’s cannabis competition. A welcome page will welcome you, and prompt you to re-read the rules and glossary. Upon completion, the judge will select an entry to judge via the drop-down menu. Once a judge begins evaluating a sample, the StrainRX engine will lead them through a series of questions about the samples appearance, aroma, taste, and effect. Judges are encouraged to provide comments and feedback on each sample, and are given ample space to do so. Upon complete, the StrainRX engine will compute a score from 0 to 100, and you will be prompted to continue to the next sample evaluation.
“This partnership is exciting because it allows us to produce better data about the effects and benefits of cannabis, and to subsequently present this information in a way that is most useful to the end consumer,” said Alec Perelman, manager of StrainRX.
In the meantime, competitors can still get involved in the Cannabis Classic’s cannabis competition.
