theFarmacist and Solar Therapeutics today announced the launch of its inaugural Massachusetts Cultivators Cup – the State’s first-ever, people’s choice cannabis competition and music festival to be headlined by Cypress Hill.
The Massachusetts Cultivators Cup event is entirely centered around celebrating, welcoming, incorporating and building community around cannabis. Fans from all around the region are welcome to enjoy a safe environment featuring top-notch entertainment, diverse, upscale food, artisan and industry vendors and an epic cannabis experience.
“We couldn’t be happier to announce the inaugural launch of our Cultivators Cup event here in the Bay State,” said Jordan Carlson, Founder of theFarmacist. “We partnered with Solar Therapeutics and conceptualized this to be the crown jewel of cannabis tourism. We want this to be a platform where people can gather to celebrate cannabis culture, products, licensed cultivators, as well as local makers and artists.”
The Cultivators Cup was developed to empower and establish emerging licensed cultivators of cannabis while allowing for consumers to provide honest feedback of various cannabis and cannabis-infused products. Limited edition “judges’ kits” will be available for purchase at Solar Therapeutics’ retail dispensary in Somerset, MA beginning in August. Each kit comprises 28 individual 1-gram drams of flower from licensed cultivators in MA. Those who purchase judges kits become part of a true-blind cannabis competition to discover who grows the best grass in Mass.
“This is really an exciting time for all of us involved with the Cultivators Cup,” said Edward Dow, Solar Therapeutics, CEO. “We feel it’s so important to offer an event where we can celebrate this industry in a safe environment and empower our consumers to discover the multitude of stand-out cannabis operators – and their products – right here in Massachusetts.”
The Cultivators Cup Award Ceremony (Day 1):
The Cultivators Cup Award Ceremony enables participating cultivators an opportunity to meet and engage with consumers and potential buyers in the regulated cannabis market. Following sales of the judges kits, a private VIP award ceremony will be held in Somerset to announce the winner of the inaugural Massachusetts Cultivators Cup. The Awards Ceremony will feature premium live music/entertainment and upscale food/beverages.
