The NW Cannabis Classic was held in Tacoma, Washington on August 29-30th at the historic Tacoma Armory Building. I talked with several people that were at the event, and they all said it was nothings short of fantastic. Tacoma was the second stop of the NW Cannabis Classic, with the first event taking place in Anchorage, Alaska on May 16-17.
The event included quality vendors, workshops and lectures, people won free products and prizes, and included micro-lounges, live entertainment, and food trucks. The event even included a gamer's lounge, which I don't know that I've ever heard of something like that at a cannabis event before, but it's a stellar idea. People were lucky I wasn't there - I'm a beast at video games.
But the part of the event that I'm sure most people were there for, and what people are most curious about, is who won at the competition? There were five categories - Best Hybird, Best Indica, Best Sativa, Best Edible, and Best Concentrate. I want to personally thank all of the growers and processors that participated - your products are amazing! Below are the results of the event:
