NECANN Announces New Cannabis Cup Of Champions

Recognizing “the best of the best cannabis and cannabis products, with additional accolades for Best Artwork, Most Innovative Packaging, and more.”


This year’s spring cannabis cup season in New England was one to remember, with the NECANN Cup in March being a standout highlight. And while that tradition will continue, the team behind the leading industry convention series born in this region is also putting a fresh spin on the longstanding cup tradition.

Per NECANN, the Cup of Champions is a “METRC-compliant competition exclusively for Licensed Operators in Massachusetts.” But while home growers will sit this one out on the sample side, some of them will hold the gavels, as the “event will feature a judging panel of past cannabis competition winners, including the esteemed Home Growers/Caregivers from NECANN Cup Boston.”

Furthermore, the new cup “will recognize and award the best of the best cannabis and cannabis products, with additional accolades for Best Artwork, Most Innovative Packaging, and more.” All of which will be presented at an award ceremony on Sept. 21 at the 35th annual Boston Freedom Rally (on the 21+ stage). More from the NECANN team below:

Harbor House Collective will serve as the Official Intake Partner and Judge Kit Distributor for The Cup of Champions. Competitors will enjoy benefits such as testing credits from Green Valley Analytics offering up to 55% off for a maximum of six full panel tests per licensee, with judges receiving the same discount. 

Additionally, all judges will be given a voucher for a free MMJ Certification from Alternative Wellness Centers. The competition intake period is from August 21st to 28th, and registration is now open on the NECANN Cup website. 

Past competition winners are encouraged to submit a Judge Application on the website to be considered for judging The Cup of Champions. Prizes for competition winners are sponsored by Mohawk Glass Company @slateglass and @canthave2much. Judges will also have the opportunity to come together for a Judge Sesh sponsored by The Summit Lounge. Custom 420 Supply has stepped us as the Official Judge Kit sponsor providing us with the best quality packaging solutions for our Kits.

The new cup’s tagline: “Judged By Champions, to crown new Champions!”
