Just Announced – High Times Cannabis Cup Michigan: People’s Choice 2022

We are stoked to announce the High Times Cannabis Cup Michigan: People’s Choice 2022. This will be the largest competition held in history, with more than 3,300 judge kits and 17 categories across recreational and medical products.

To keep things safe and compliant, the competition will feature a digital awards show only. Judging is done from home, and there is no live event. And that’s good news for consumers—judging is open to everyone who is eligible to purchase cannabis in the state!

“The People’s Choice Cups open up the coveted Cannabis Cup judging experience to the world in a time when people need it most,” said Mark Kazinec, High Times Director of Competitions & Events. “Judging is no longer reserved for the Snoop Doggs and Willie Nelsons of the world, and we have 10 times the amount of judge kits available than in previous years.

“While the majority of America is working from home, or not working at all, we now have the opportunity to test and rank quality cannabis products from a wide range of producers from the comfort of our own home to help crown the best in each state. For brands, this is the best way to get your product into the hands of hundreds of new consumers and get real feedback, especially in a time of no live events. For Judges, this is the best job you’ll ever have, and the best way to see which products work best for you.”

Historically, Cannabis Cups have been judged by up to 200 judges is as many as 10 categories. In an effort to keep the competition thriving during the onset of the pandemic in 2020, High Times created our People’s Choice events, opening the door to an ever-increasing number of judges and product categories than ever before.

“In previous years, Cannabis Cups were judged amongst only about 200 judges across eight to 10 categories,” Kazinec continued. “Since the inception of People’s Choice in 2020, we increased the number of judge kits from 200 to 2,000. This April, we are launching the largest-ever Cannabis Cup in history with 17 unique categories across Recreational and Medical products for a total of over 3,300 judge kits. We plan to increase distribution so that every area of Michigan is covered as best as possible. If this year is anything like last year, we expect lines of enthusiasts ready to purchase their kits at the select dispensaries, which may very well sell out within a few days.” 

The High Times Cannabis Cup Michigan: People’s Choice Edition is aimed to identify and award the best cannabis products in all of Michigan, all across a wide range of different categories, which are to be judged by the great people of Michigan.

These events wouldn’t be possible without the support from our partners. “A huge shoutout to the team at Red White & Bloom for taking on the Intake process with us which consists of 10-14 long, sweaty days of receiving product, building judge kits, and transporting to retailers. We’ll be announcing our other sponsors and retailer partners soon, all of whom make the success of the Cannabis Cup Michigan possible,” Kazinec shared.

May the best products win!

Safer CBD Products & Education are Key for Cannabidiol Life

Education and transparency are key when you’re looking for new CBD brands. The rise in popularity of the non-psychotropic cannabinoid in recent years has seen an unregulated market flooded with inferior products that aren’t rigorously testing. Cannabidiol Life wants to help educate you, the consumer, on how and why the cannabinoid can be utilized as a health and wellness supplement and why you should consider purchasing from their extensive range of quality, full-spectrum CBD products.

Cannabidiol Life is more than just another company selling hemp-derived CBD products. They pride themselves on being a reliable, trustworthy resource for hemp consumers, wholesalers and distributors alike. They believe in transparency and safety — that people should know what they are buying before doing so.

Florida-based Cannabidiol Life started off as a CBD educational website in December 2016 and was used by the National Hemp Association as the go-to source for “CBD Education & Product Guides.”  The company shifted gears in 2017 and launched their own products with a simple philosophy: people, planet, profit.

People: Help and take care of people first… always. Cannabidiol Life has created the “Hemp For Hope Foundation” (a non-profit organization), providing free CBD capsules to those with proven/diagnosed medical conditions.

Planet: Take care of our planet. Hemp is a renewable, natural resource that will help preserve our planet for future generations; if we utilize it to its fullest potential. They have also added solar energy to their Florida facility as part of their green initiative.

Profit: Only after the first two are emphasized and acted upon first, can a company truly profit.

Their mission? To provide easy and informed access to the highest quality hemp-derived CBD products at the very best price.

“We always put others first and this is something we don’t just speak about, we live by it,” says Chris Visser owner and president. “It is the foundation of everything we live by and stand which is our current formula for being the difference we want to see in this world.”

Cannabidiol Life adheres to strict practices of production that keeps the consumer safe.

All their products are rigorously tested using an in-house 2019 high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) cannabis potency testing machine. A patented hemp extraction method helped Cannabidiol Life take home the “Best CBD Capsule” award at the 2018 CBD Expo. Additionally, Cannabidiol Life is USDA certified organic, FDA registered and GMP certified.

Knowledge is power, so Cannabidiol Life has included a comprehensive CBD education database on their website. From CBD 101 to explaining the difference between broad spectrum and full spectrum CBD products, dosage advise and product guides, if you have a question, you’ll likely find the answer here.

Cannabidiol Life has a product for all your CBD needs. Topicals include massage oil, facial serum, bath bombs and body butter. If ingestibles are your thing, you can choose from gel caps, bottled water, infused chocolate and a variety of mouth-watering gummies. Tincture fans can choose from various potencies of CBD oils, plus CBD oils with added CBN or CBG isolate. Additionally, there is a range of products for vape users including CBD pens, vape refills, as well as pet products and more.

Plus, use the code CannabisNow30 at checkout to receive 30% off your purchase.

Your health and your quality of life is important to Cannabidiol Life, especially in a non-regulated industry where harmful products are being sold nationwide.
