ince HIGH TIMES wasn’t coming back to the Netherlands in 2015 for the annual Cannabis Cup, the HomeGrown Cup organization felt there was a gap that needed to be filled. With the HomeGrown Cup, they lean on an old tradition of celebrating the annual agriculture harvests at the end of the season.

hgc_flyer_32The HomeGrown Cup emphasizes the benefits of growing your own cannabis for personal use and sharing with friends; recreational, medical and therapeutic.

The HomeGrown Cup is strictly an invitational competition. Only competitors and organizers are permitted entry to the judging session, held at a secret location.

Vaporizers are on site (thanks to VapoShop), encouraging healthy cannabis use.

2015 saw the first edition of the HomeGrown Cup, leaning on an old tradition of celebrating the annual agriculture harvest at the end of the season.

The 2016 edition was held on December 17, 2016, in Eindhoven (the Netherlands).

And so we’re pleased to announce the second edition of the HomeGrown Cup happened last weekend and we are able to present you the results!
