The first weekend of the 2016 SoCal Cannabis Cup kicked off Saturday with thousands of people filling the NOS Events Center for a day packed with music, seminars, panels and 500 vendors. 

As always, beautiful bud was plentiful with California growers showing off their best. 

The Honey Pot booth showed off their sweet wares. 

Some vendors chose to flash their previously won Cannabis Cup medals and trophies. 

Others tried to bring the Force to their side, as each competes for the Best Booth award. 

Free dabs were being offered by booths left and right. 

Stages throughout the medicating area were poppin' with live music and surprise guests. 

Even though the concert times were pushed up due to incoming rain, a massive crowd turned out for De La Soul.

The night ended on a crazy high note with The Roots, who put on a super sick show. 

Don't miss the rest of the fun. Tickets for Sunday, January 31 and next weekend (February 5 - 7) are still available on CannabisCup.com, as well as at the door.
