This past weekend, local and international cannabis aficionados came out to play at the first-ever High Times Cannabis Cup in Canada.
Between two stages of music, a vendor’s expo, a cannabis cup, and multiple seminars, there was plenty to take in over the course of the three-day event, but we spent most of our time perusing the expo and scoring the 100+ entries in the High Times judging kit.
While the last-minute High Times takeover did result in a few scheduling mishaps and vendor withdrawals, most vendors and festival go-ers couldn’t have asked for a better weekend, which was made all the more exciting by warm weather and the serene landscape of the Cowichan Valley.
Browse through the images below to get a feel for the festival, and stay tuned for a story detailing the lucky winners of the Cannabis Cup.
