Local Products of Colorado SWEEPS The Last Caregivers Cup!
Hydroponic grown #60 BC. Purps(Mendo Purps orgins- Sativa) was winner of all three medical marijuana events- People's Choice, Most Photogenic, & Best Aroma grown by Rudy Perez & Angel Cruz. Strain offering is said to be very effective for nausea. A big margin winner by 23 votes among the couple hundred patients and caregivers in attendance.

Top Shelf Extracts also WINS BIG with 1st Place Hash entry #54 Tree Kush, Oil- #55 Bruce Banner, and #53 Ear wax-Bubba Banner in another sweep of the competition.

Unusual compared to past competitions was the fact that contestant offerings of Hash, Hash oil, Ear Wax far out numbered the provided strains of Medical Marijuana by a considerable margin. A stark contrast to Last November, 2010 2nd Annual Caregivers Cup, which found the two competitions 'neck to neck'with 22 strain offerings of medical marijuana and 19 strains of Hash, Hash Oil, & Ear wax.

Possible reason for the fair turnout of wellness centers/ marijuana infused products manufacturers, patients who grow, and caregiver growers providing medical marijuana for this competition may be due to July 1 new laws and regulations severely restricting their activities and having considerable oversight.

Infused products category was won by Veronica Carpio of 420 Highways wellness center of Lafayette with a 420 Topical Balm made from lemon skunk and Maui Wowie. The combination Indica and Sativa mixed with olive oil and shea butter is said to be good for pain, skin wounds/healing rash, bites and more.

Great band offerings included excellant rhythm and blues live music by Euphoria Fax,& and a strong Hip Hop set by the impressive J.O.B. Band.

Lots of happy patients, caregivers, and legal cannabis professionals appeared to enjoy the carnival atmosphere which included medicated offerings of Green Chilli, Nachos, Teas (green and blueberry), and even Hemp-I-Scream (non-medicated) for dessert.

There was little talk of politics this evening, but the general consensus among patients appeared to be that government has no business in "their medicine cabinet", pending the July 1st 2011 new laws. Also due to recent rules changes affecting both patients and caregivers by the C.D.P.H.E. Board of Health.

Some have argued the rules enacted by the BOH are unconstitutional, and pending new laws are said to soon have two Constitutional based lawsuits attempting to derail an obvious climate of over-regulation.

The collective model appears to be more appealing now, as one restriction not enacted by Colorado governemental bodies, to date, involves the opportunity for patients to assist patients. Constitutional protections remain intact under Article 18 Sec. 14 (Amendment 20).

The close of an eight year run of legal patient community development events under the "ONE LOVE people get Ready" umbrella, with a three year caregivers cup competition, once again, found no law enforcement interactions at the private legal patient and caregiver event held at Denver's Historic Oriental Theater.

THE CAREGIVERS' CUP

The cup itself is treated similar to professional hockey's famous Stanley Cup, a glass piece from Washington artist Wes Richards said to be worth over $10,000. It sits on a wooden pedestal adorned with past winners plaques, and, at well over five foot tall, may be the largest legal cannabis competition cup in the world.

Cannabis Photos

Our first Caregivers' Cup event was a huge success. Many thanks to the Oriental Theatre for hosting the event. We had 26 beautiful entries and the judges had a fine time! Dan Skye of High Times took pictures of everything for a feature story on Colorado in the February 2010 issue. Our photos and videos of the event are here.

The Colorado Cannabis Caregiver's Cup is a competition among legal patients and caregivers to see who has cultivated the "best" medical cannabis (medical marijuana). Since different cannabis strains are used to treat so many different conditions, judging the "best" medicine for all patients would be impossible. Therefore, we judge the medicine based on aesthetic properties. Awards are given in these categories: Most Photogenic, Best Aroma, Stickiest Bud and the coveted Patient's Choice Award.

This event is sponsored by the Rocky Mountain Caregivers Cooperative.
