LOS ANGELES, CA, Oct. 23, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- High Times, the most well-known, globally recognized brand in cannabis, today announced a partnership with Oregon-based Pure Green, a pioneering neighborhood cannabis dispensary, for its first-ever Cannabis Cup in Oregon. The event will take place at Portland’s North Warehouse on October 26.
Pure Green will serve as the official competition intake and distribution partner for the Cannabis Cup competition. Official entries will be collected at Pure Green’s dispensary located at 3738 NE Sandy Blvd. in Portland and distributed to local competition judges.
“Pure Green is a pillar of Oregon’s cannabis community, and we look forward to working with them as we host our first-ever Cannabis Cup in Oregon,” said Kraig Fox, CEO of High Times. “What makes the Cannabis Cup so unique is our ability to connect consumers with the distinctive products and flavors of local communities. We can’t wait for Portland’s cannabis enthusiasts to experience the Cannabis Cup.”
Meghan Walstatter, founder of Pure Green said, “For decades, High Times has been a strong advocate on behalf of the cannabis community. We are thrilled to partner with such a well-known, global brand as they bring the Cannabis Cup to Portland. This event will contribute to Oregon’s cannabis movement and allows us to share our leading flowers, concentrates, extracts, edibles and topicals with local cannabis enthusiasts.”
The High Times Cannabis Cup is the world’s foremost cannabis festival, originally founded in 1988 in Amsterdam. While most Cannabis Cup events were set up as two or three-day festivals, the Oregon event will be unique, focusing mainly on the competition between cannabis brands and farms in the state, culminating in a one-day awards show with a collection of Oregon-based brands. Thousands of attendees are expected to turn out in support of their favorite brands, strains and concentrates in celebration of Oregon’s legal cannabis community.
Additional details on the entertainment and musical line-ups will be released over the coming weeks. Information on the event, tickets, and sponsorship opportunities are available here.
