How this works.

We take cannabis seriously.

  • Exam­ine and expe­ri­ence the buds

    There’s a lot of detail to craft­ing pre­mi­um bud, and this is the time to take a peek at the Judge’s Book to review the cri­te­ria for each strain. From appear­ance to expe­ri­ence, you’ll want to con­sid­er every­thing. For some of these details, we’ve includ­ed a jew­ellers loop with­in your judges kit to give you a leg up on those fin­er details for bud structure. 

    Take your time – the expe­ri­ence is part of the jour­ney. We rec­om­mend try­ing one strain per day so you can dial in your notes. As you expe­ri­ence each strain, record your scores in your Judge’s Book – you’ll use these notes when you sub­mit your final scores. And hang onto that code inside your Judge’s Box – you will need that later.

  • Record your obser­va­tions & expe­ri­ence in the Judge’s Book

    Once you’ve had the oppor­tu­ni­ty to exam­ine and expe­ri­ence a strain, record your obser­va­tions. Use the Judge’s Book to keep a record of the score you give each strain. Be sure to give your score for each cat­e­go­ry. Once all cat­e­gories have been com­plet­ed, tal­ly up your final score for the strain on the score­card. Again we rec­om­mend try­ing one strain per day to help keep strain expe­ri­ences sep­a­rate. This is where you put your cannabis exper­tise to the test. We’re rely­ing on you, judges!

  • Sub­mit your offi­cial scores

    Once you have expe­ri­enced all 8 strains and com­plet­ed the scor­ing in the Judge’s Book, make your votes offi­cial with our online sur­vey, avail­able exclu­sive­ly for our Judges. Vote now with the but­tons below and record your notes from your Judges Book. You will need your unique Judge’s Code (found inside the Judge’s Box) to com­plete the online survey.
